Dragon Age Leliana’s Song DLC Review
Review - posted by VentilatorOfDoom on Fri 9 July 2010, 15:47:57Tags: BioWare; Dragon Age: Origins
The latest DLC for the best RPG since Arcanum gets the review treatment over at Greywardens.
For players who like to dive straight into combat, Leliana, Tug and Sketch come pre-scripted with useful tactical settings, which allow for quick and dirty play through the game’s first few missions. On harder difficulty levels, I had to make some adjustments to my team, but for the most part, they acted as a cohesive, well-practiced group – exactly what you’d expect from a trio of Orlesian bards.
Combat in this DLC is fast-paced and fun, with enough variation to keep even seasoned players interested. There are no mindless darkspawn in this tale – instead, you’ll find yourself pitted against guards, Fereldan nobles, and other spies, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Mages make full use of the spells in their arsenal, and city guards and soldiers use a wide variety of ranged and melee weapons. As a result combat is fresh and dynamic, with a wide range of tactical challenges on harder difficulty settings.

This is what Dragon Age is famous for.
