Default Dragon Age - Return to Ostagar Review

February 11th, 2010, 16:48
GamePro takes a look at Return to Ostagar for Dragon Age in this review. The score is 2.5/5 and here's a snip:
In Dragon Age's first DLC pack, unexciting battles against too-familiar foes replace the core game's engaging storytelling. Generic genlocks fling arrows at you while darkspawn lumber toward you in a laughable attempt to take your team down. The encounters are especially easy if, like me, you roll back into Ostagar with a high-level character. Hell, even on my second play-through, using my level 12 warrior, I blew through the kill-'em-all objective in just half an hour without so much as a scratch to remember it by. The loot, another crucial hook to Dragon Age, is particularly disappointing for high-end players. Pilfering pieces of King Cailan's badass armor from fallen foes is worthwhile for low-level characters, but the golden gear is scrap metal for experienced Wardens.

Well not every dollar milked by DLC is worth it. I always am sceptical about the idea to pump small mini stuff into a game after launch. A new armor here and tiny a battle there… sorry but a single player game is no MMO. A real new expansion, ok. Always welcome. But after having played through once I am not interested in such miniature addons. As good as Bioware games are, at some point it becomes just money milking.

In Dragon Age's first DLC pack

Why is he referring to it as the "first" DLC pack? What was Warden's Keep considered to be?

I guess 'first post-release DLC' would be correct …
