A definite must for any Skyrim player.
If you're a die-hard fan of the Elder Scrolls series (or if you especially love Morrowind, Oblivion & vanilla Skyrim) then you'd wish Bethesda had released this DLC for Skyrim sooner instead of the lackluster Dawnguard & Hearthfire DLCs.
Where Skyrim is ridden with shallowness and brevity of its quests, Dragonborn offers much more than any fans of the series can hope for in the entry. Dragonborn brings back all the epic feeling of the previous entries with its amazing content - satisfying quest, dungeon & exploration rewards, unique interiors, challenging quests and a whole bunch of lore (yippey!).
Fans of Bloodmoon will be surprised and left in awe on how much Solstheim and the people of Dunmer from nearby Vvardenfel has changed since their previous visit. Some old areas are revisited with brand new layout & invigorating feel that makes the journey in and around the island that much more epic on its own. Whereas Bloodmoon's Solstheim's snowy landscape may turn out a little repetitive and a tad lifeless for some players, Dragonborn changes this perception completely and leaves you yearn for more adventure in this brand new DLC. Leave no stone unturned this time!
Wished vanilla Skyrim had all these cool amazing features from the start!

Dragonborn is a robust package, which is more of an expansion than an add-on. The main quest, chasing after Miraak, is lengthy, but there are also plenty of other sidequests to undertake, new armour and weapons to forge, a host of new enemies, a few Shouts, as well as the ability to ride dragons for the very first time (which is, unfortunately, not as fun as it sounds). Oh, there are also a couple of extremely tough boss fights to endure if you think you're tough enough. All in all Dragonborn offers at least six hours of fun, but it can be much more than that if you take your time and enjoy all it has to offer.

I loved this DLC way better then the previous Cave DLC. There were a few issues I had though and the briefness of the main story was one of them. I know it is becoming harder and hard to release DLCs with sizable content these days given the level of detail needed in them but I felt that was no excuse in this case. The issue I had was with the dungeons, there simply aren't enough of them on the island and the ones that are are mostly quest based or too short to be of significance. That being said what Dragonborn doesn't deliver on quantity it does on quality, I didn't find one bug in my play through of the main quest or otherwise. Nostalgia brings me back to those Morrowind roots and reminds me how good that game was but at the same time is unique enough to not feel like a ripped off consumer. If there was any one issue that annoyed me for being overlooked it was the actual physical size of the island itself and the excessive mountains. The island is about half the physical size it was back in Morrowind and I don't remember it being quite so overrun with mountains (over half the island which makes for fairly tedious travel). Overall I think the DLC is great but not fantastic much like Morrowind itself I felt like it was missing so many pointless quests (I know this is something most people like but it bugs me that there are almost no "I want this guy dead" or "there's rats in my basement" quests.) that you just sort of do the main story and then never have to visit the place again which makes me a little sad because the island it self it really nice. In summary the DLC is worth a play through but at the same time once you are done, You're done. Don't expect more then five or six side quests.
Decent but kind of underwhelming considering it's the last DLCProfoundly_Mad | May 2, 2013 | See all Profoundly_Mad's reviews »
Dragonborn provides a whole new area for players of Skyrim to explore with plenty of side quests. But despite that, the DLC still comes across as somewhat underwhelming. The ability to ride dragons, while awesome on paper isn't as exciting as you would think.
Worth buying but I personally expected more.

Dragonborn offers those who played through Morrowind a chance to feel some nostalgia as you visit Dunmer architecture on Solstheim and see guards in their chitin armour. After the nostalgia fades you have a pretty good main mission to engage in and a nice sized island to explore with some pretty fun side quests. One multi-stage quest has you excavating an old tomb that I really enjoyed.
The main quest is only marred by the repetitive trips to a twisted daedra library realm, though the book rewards are great. Some more fleshing out of your main enemies history and motivations would have been a great too, he never really progresses past generic "I will return and rule everything"
The added Dragon-riding which sounded exciting is horrible, don't buy this expansion for that reason.
