There was a distinctive sense of "is that it?!?" at the conclusion of this download, simply because there was more intrigue than resolution left on the virtual gaming table. A couple of new characters join the party, bringing new dialogue and witticism to the game, as well as powerful attacks. Soon into the game, instead of strangers, they begin to feel like friends. The action is brutal and the ending is less than satisfying, but this downloadable campaign should be played by fans of the license. It feels short, but is enjoyable and challenging, nonetheless.

If you're willing to spend money to see Morrigan again for about five minutes and get an unsatisfactory explanation of what's been going on, then you should buy Witch Hunt. If not, then it's tough to really recommend this downloadable content. The tale of how you find Dragon Age's sparsely clothed mage is a decent one filled with personality and humor, and the combat encounters, as brief as they are, can be fun, but Witch Hunt ultimately doesn't provide enough substance to satisfy.

You can finish Witch Hunt in around 90 minutes, but that's 90 minutes you should devote to Dragon Age: Origins' other, better DLC. Even Morrigan herself seems bored by the whole thing, displaying little of her signature sneering wit in the precious few moments she appears onscreen. The main game is, at its core, fun to play, and so you may still squeeze some amusement from the simple battles and appreciate the obscure hint of events to come. But even the most fanatical Dragon Age enthusiasts will come away bewildered by a brief and hollow addition to a universe that surely must have greater mysteries to reveal than this.

Scénaristiquement parlant, Witch Hunt est une vaste supercherie, qui ne vous permettra pas d'en savoir plus sur le destin de Morrigan et ne vous proposera aucun épilogue digne de ce nom. Sur le plan du gameplay, cette extension déçoit par son recyclage éhonté d'anciens environnements de jeu et par son absence quasi-totale de challenge. Elle est donc à réserver aux affamés, qui ne peuvent pas se résoudre à la diète en attendant Dragon Age 2.

Les choix effectués dans Dragon Age : Origins vis à vis de Morrigan et la décision finale que l'on prendra à la toute fin de Chasse aux Sorcières n'auront actuellement aucune réelle conséquence : on reste toujours insatisfait par un épilogue bâclé qui ne répond finalement à rien. On hérite au passage de quelques bugs, d'un ou deux crashs et de problèmes variés d'importations de sauvegardes. Pas mal. Finalement, le seul vrai point fort (enfin, outre le grand retour de Sandal "Enchantement !" Feddic) de ce septième DLC payant de Dragon Age : Origins est d'enfin achever cette fresque de médiocrité érigée par BioWare au fil des mois. Pitié, passons à autre chose maintenant.
