The game starts 2 and a half years after the end of Dragon Age : Origins. Now I apologies now, it’s going to be very hard to be spoiler free, so if you’ve not yet completed Dragon Age, I suggest you stop reading.
As you know, at the end of Dragon Age, Morrigan disappears, and tells you not to follow her. In the original game (for me) we made out, and the baby took the power of the Archdemon. Now you don’t have to be a genius to know that 2 1/2 years later, the baby has been born, and has the Archdemon inside it.
You have the option of starting a new game, and either importing your character, or creating a new one. The game plays a little different to the other DLC’s, and the title gives it away, you are on a witch hunt. I found myself running through very familiar areas from the original game, starting at Flemeth’s home in the swamp, via the Circle tower, a few other locations and then on to a cave complex where you finally meet up with Morrigan.
Your companions throughout this DLC are a Mabari hound, a Dalish elf (Ariane) and a mage (Finn).
As mentioned above, you spend your time finding clues, battling darkspawn until you finally meet Morrigan. Now during the original game, I befriended her, which probably explains my ending to this DLC…..a let down. We had a conversation, and she left….no fight, no nothing….what an anti-climax ! I can only assume that if she didn’t like you, there may have been a battle, however I’d like to know if anybody had a different ending.
The game itself was around 2 hours to beat on normal, and ok..at best. It was better than the other DLC’s, if that’s anything to go by, but still only mediocre in my opinion.
There are rumours that unlike Mass Effect, you won’t be able to import your character into Dragon Age 2…which is a bit crap to be honest.
All in all, ok…if your bored, completed all the other DLC’s and have a spare 560 points, go for it. At least you’ll see Dragon Age through to it’s conclusion.
Approx Time taken to beat – 2hours
Difficulty setting – Normal
Score – [Rating:3/5]
