The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard

 

After a little over a month released for the Xbox 360, Skyrim's first DLC Dawnguard finally comes to th PC. I've been looking forward to continuing my adventures in Skyrim so I was pretty happy when Bethesda sent along a Steam code to check the game out.

Dawnguard is a good first DLC for Skyrim, but it's hard to say if it's worth the $20. There's some large places to explore, but some lack content and there's no really good loot it seems. The story's fun though and I do like the new follower in Serana....

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard Review

 

After spending a little over a month in Xbox-Exclusivity-Land, the first DLC addon for Bethesda's epic RPG, Skyrim, is finally out on PC. Dawnguard has the Dragonborn taking on a resurgent vampire menace when a powerful, centuries-old family of...

Yes because it's more Skyrim, no because it's really only that: a bit more Skyrim. For twenty bucks, I was expecting more.

Skyrim: Dawnguard Review

 

The first expansion pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim sucks big time -- in a literal, neck-biting, vampire-y way.

Dawnguard is neither as meaty nor as cohesive as Shivering Isles, its Oblivion expansion pack counterpart, but then again it’s not as expensive either. The other issue, as with any Elder Scrolls add-on content, is usefulness. When you get 100-plus...

The Elder Scrolls series cleans up its act without losing its edge.

Skyrim lets these rough edges show, because the element of chaos lets players feel like the game is happening to them, and they are alive in it—not just cogs in a pre-fab Game Experience. That’s what sets Skyrim apart from some of its contemporaries....

Review: Skyrim Spans 16 Square Miles of RPG Excellence

 

Despite a few hiccups, the latest Elder Scrolls is as engrossing as it is vast.

Between the two of them, Jeremy Parish and Thierry Nguyen have invested more than 125 hours into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- enough to see the two main quest lines to completion, but still not enough to have explored all the game has to offer, by...

Even Twilight does better vampires than Skyrim's first, over-priced expansion.

It's certainly more, but it's not better. Dawnguard might do the trick for players simply looking for a way to spend more hours in the snowy peaks of Skyrim, but it's a series of missed opportunities and compromises at a ridiculous price.

So here it is, then. Skyrim's first official expansion is now available on the PC as well as the Xbox and ready to let you sink your teeth into it. Pun sort of intended. Previous expansions have gone over well in Elder Scrolls history, adding new lands...

Any reason to go back to Skyrim is a good reason ; Two quest-lines to play through, doubling your game time ; Two new perk trees to level up

Vampire form is largely useless ; Not enough new, unique loot ; Some serious bugs that need fixing

Skyrim certainly draws a new line in the sand for RPGs moving forward, blending the accessibility of Fallout 3 with the depth and storytelling of Baldurs Gate. Mods and better visuals make the PC version the one to get.

Skyrim's a huge, impressive, dangerous land, and unless you seriously hate exploration and fantasy I highly doubt you'll do anything but love it. If you can only buy one game this year, buy Skyrim.

Bold, beautiful and just a little broken, this enormous RPG is familiar territory for Bethesda. But an uncommonly vivid world, steeped in endlessly rich fiction, makes Skyrim their finest game yet.
