Your fate, and the fate of Solstheim, hangs in the balance as you face off against your deadliest adversary – the first Dragonborn.

Arguably the best DLC for Skyrim, Dragoborn takes place entirely in the neighbouring island of Solstheim, previously visited in the Bloodmoon expansion for Morrowind (except for a few quests and items that you have access to without actually ever visiting the island, which you have no reason not to do, by the way). Just like Dawnguard did, it adds a lot more quality content to an already massive game (story, characters, gameplay elements - particularly shouts and other abilities, locations and enemies), this time focusing on an even more interesting lore element, your character's role as the last Dragonborn. Again, this little information won't do the DLC justice, so just play and experience it for yourself. Bethesda has once again created a fantastic piece of additional content, and while it does not drastically change the way Skyrim is played/experienced (other than the very different environments it offers), you certainly won't regret buying it!
The Dragonborn DLC is a beautiful addition which brings a significant quantity of content to an already massive game. Being able to travel to the land of Solstheim is a great throwback to Morrowind and brings plenty of new enemies to the mix and more importantly, more loot to collect. My only problem is an extra loading screen but otherwise I enjoyed it all round.
I played this add on when it first came out. In this dlc you head to the island of solstheim, to fight the "real" dragonborn. This expansion adds around 6 hours of main story content, and another 2-6 for extra missions and locations. This expansion was probably my favorite of the three because you get to go back to the location you previously visited in the dlc Blood Moon in Morrowind. Overall if you have Skyrim you should definitely give this add on a go.
Have you ever played Morrowind? If so do you wish to return to a simpler time, with simple principles? Then play Morrowind, because this is not Morrowind. What this is however, is a great DLC that is a throwback to Morrowind, which lets the player explore an isle called Solstheim. So, why is it good? There are numerous reasons for this. Firstly the story is relatively good, with another Dragonborn entering the fray and you having been hunted by him. Secondly the isle of Solstheim is a vibrant location, filled with interesting side quest, new creatures and new items. Thirdly and most importantly you gain the ability to fly on dragons. If you have the base game this is definitely worth it's price tag.
Dragonborn is a great DLC for a multitude of reasons. We have a compelling story about the first Dragonborn and how he was destined to defeat Alduin but did not. We have a great environment in the form of Sosltheim, an island we visited in Morrowind's Bloodmoon expansion. We have dragon mounts, plenty of new enemies, and an interesting culture unlike anything we saw on Skyrim. My only criticism is the fight with the first Dragonborn is anti-climatic, but we get to explore a new plane of Oblivion we've never seen. Overall, it's a great expansion for Skyrim. Not as good as Shivering Isles, but it's definitely worth playing and checking out.
