Jamais deux sans trois disait l’adage et heureusement pour nous on n’aura seulement eu que deux DLC décevant pour Skyrim ! Dragonborn est à la hauteur des attentes des joueurs, long, varié, riche en découverte et en exploration, cette extension ravira le aventuriers en herbe et caressera dans le sens du poil les vieux baroudeurs de Morrowind. Sans atteindre toutefois la maestria de Shivering Isles, la référence pour beaucoup du DLC d’Oblivion, Dragonborn n’a pas à rougir de ce qu’il propose. Ce sera donc sans aucune arrière pensée, ni retenue que l’on vous invitera tous à revêtir encore une fois l’armure du Dovahkiin et replonger dans un univers réellement captivant...

If you, like me, are a fan of the Elder Scrolls series, and Morrowind in particular, this expansion is a must play. There are so many great references and callbacks to Bethesda’s classic third entry that only fans will pick up on. Even for those of you who haven’t played Morrowind, but are looking for an excuse to jump back into Tamriel, this is a great purchase. There is plenty of content for the money, and it’s different enough to allow even those with over 100 hours in Skyrim to feel refreshed. It’s easily the best piece of Skyrim expansion content yet, and well worthy of $20.

Dragonborn left me with the same inclination that Skyrim’s main game left me with after I had finished with the main questline, and that’s that I just want to explore and milk as much content out of it as I can. After 10 hours, there’s still stuff I want to see and places I want to go. If you felt letdown by Dawnguard or Hearthfire, then try not to let that put you off, because what Bethesda have created here is exactly what Skyrim fans would have been crying out for… and that’s an experience that captures the brilliance of the main game but in a much more bitesize manner. We can’t recommend this piece of DLC enough.

Bethesda frappe fort avec Dragonborn, une extension complète qui réussit de façon imparable à nous replonger dans Skyrim en réveillant les envies d'exploration et de découverte qui s'étaient endormies depuis qu'on a retourné Bordeciel. A une quête principale qui tient la route, Dragonborn conjugue un paquet de quêtes secondaires et annexes, de nouvelles rencontres, du contenu tout frais et un changement de décor qui aide au dépaysement. Bref, vous en aurez pour votre argent et tant pis si la chevauchée de dragon n'est pas terrible. Joie, joie, joie.

De tidigare expansionerna hade mycket att bevisa, då de trots allt skulle utöka fjolårets allra bästa spel. Det går verkligen att diskutera om de höll måttet, men i Dragonborns fall är det ingen diskussion: detta är en maffig, underhållande och värdig utökning till Bethesdas värld, som du lär spela fram till julafton och säkerligen längre.

Dragonborn is a creepy descent into madness set in a mini Morrowind that isn’t quite as epic as Dawnguard, but it compensates for that with a wealth of new items, shouts, and spells. Its performance issues and overreliance on Skyrim storytelling tropes are difficult to ignore, but beneath all the frustration is a great adventure that examines the power of knowledge and how far one man will go to rule the world.

Personally, I liked Hearthfire, and before that, Dawnguard, better than Dragonborn. The "epic" quest felt like it was cut for time and the dragon riding was nowhere near what I wanted it to be. The questing here will surely be enjoyed by tons of players, but the missed opportunities made this my least favorite Skyrim expansion yet.

I’ve been moaning a lot about how there hasn’t been much innovation in Dragonborn like the miserable curmudgeon that I am, but for many people the sheer amount of new content will be reason enough to give this new expansion a try. You can’t fault Bethesda in the value for money stakes when there’s tens of hours of new content for those looking for more Skyrim adventuring. After completing the main campaign and several side-quests there were still plenty of others left in my journal to be getting on with. The appeal of Dragonborn will largely come down to how tired you are with Skyrim’s core mechanics. It’s a massive chunk of more of the same, basically. If that’s what you’re looking for you’ll be more than satisfied, but lapsed players shouldn’t expect anything intriguing enough to drag them back in.
