Skyrim: Dawnguard Review | IGN

IGN: "Don’t accuse The Elder Scrolls of selling out to the modern-day pop-culture vampire craze. The venerable role-playing series has been in the blood-sucking business for years, and so there’s nothing to forgive when Dawnguard, the first expansion pack for endless epic Skyrim, boasts a vampire-centric premise. In fact, you’ll be thankful Dawnguard went down this road." (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360) 8/10

I don't much care how good some reviews want to paint this thing, there is no way I'm going to be paying $20 dollars for a DLC. Especially sense playing vampire is already dull for me in the game - mainly because everyone can see through your full-covering mask/helmet and tell right away that you're a vampire. What amazing x-ray eyes you guards have.

I didn't try it yet but if it is on the same scale as shivering isles then it more than worth the 20 dollars tag.

Thanks for telling us that you don't care about the expansion at all.

Shivering Isles was HUGE and this is supposed to be as well. It's easily worth 20 bucks in fans eyes and it has enough content to be a standalone downloadable title. Just like Shivering Isles.

Shivering Isles also added a big island to explore. So did the Morrowind expansions.

Here, they just tacked on a few buildings and dungeons into the existing terrain.

So, yeah: not worth it.

$20 is not much money but I spose you could always buy a 4-5 hour FPS for $60..

COD DLC and now it's moving into other games.
M$ is programing folks to pay more for DLC and as long as everyone is just willing to throw them your money they will keep doing it.
Justify it however you wish be it longevity of fun factor or whatever but before you know it all DLC that used to be 1,200 points will be 1,600 points.
Yes maybe Bethesda did do a good job with the DLC but what if the next Dev doesn't? or the next and then the next?
I'm just not willing to just let M$ up my usual 1,200 point DLC to 1,600 points.
We saw them do it when it went from 800 to 1,200 and that wasn't that long ago and now they are doing it again.
I'll get it when it goes on sale, my copy of skyrim isn't going anywhere and I still have PLENTY of unfinished games from last year

Simple, don't buy the crappy DLC and buy the good ones.

ahhhh yess. Because we all know MS is the sole reason why DLC is a certain price on all platforms.

The Elder Scrolls has always been one of those series where you get back what you put into it. It's all about the experience and their dlc's have always continued in this vein, giving you a new land to explore, new characters to meet, new ways to play. It's one of the things gs that sets it apart from other games. Having logged hundreds of hours with multiple characters in Skyrim alone, this is a no brainer first day purchase for me.

Developers are business wise by cashing in off the back of the success of the popular Twilight series saga and the emo/gothic/vampire pop culture.
