Compared to the content Skyrim offers it just didn't appeal to me as much, and the choice to make some of the key elements of the expansion locked in third person view is a mistake in my opinion. Soul Cairn, one of the key new areas of the expansion was also something of a let down, if not in terms of looks and storyline, then in terms of frustration level and meaningless collect quests.
On the other hand, the questline as such is very interesting, and it adds something to the overall Skyrim experience. We are introduced to more knowledge on Elder Scrolls and dragons as well as the intriguing concept of Soul Cairn. And given that I presume most players will want to explore both sides of the questline, there is definite value here even if 1600 points comes across as a little steep."
