For many critics, the best DLC of the year may already be wrapped up. And deservedly so. Naughty Dog’s ‘Left Behind’ was a fantastic narrative-focused adventure that had more characterisation in its sub-two hour duration than many thirty to forty hour blockbuster ever manage. In many ways, Expansive are inclined to agree with the majority.
But something quite special happened when upon booting up Harebrained Schemes’ Dragonfall expansion to Shadowrun Returns. Even though the game doesn’t have a single line of audible dialogue, it appreciates the significant value of the written word within a video game unlike nothing else Expansive have seen in 2014. 4.5/5
