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.
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.
One of the main selling points for this DLC is that you can finally ride a dragon. Yes, you ride a dragon, but it just feels like a 1 time show. You don't really control it, so it's basically worthless... The new quests have a better storyline that usual so it isn't all that bad. Love the theme on the characters.
This feels more like an expansion than traditional DLC. The island it adds - Solstheim - is really big, and not like Skyrim at all. The flora and fauna is completely different, and the environment mainly consists of ash-covered wasteland. There's many different quests to be found, and it's so rich on content. There's also strange books that can be found and they teleport you to really interesting weird locations. The house you get is also great. The biggest disappointment is the dragon flying. You don't directly control it, and can't fly anywhere. You just tell it what to do and it's pretty boring. This is DLC done right, and if you like Skyrim and doesn't already own this, then get it.
