Game Critics writes: "The latest downloadable add-on to BioWare's smash hit Dragon Age: Origins was released on January 13 for the Xbox 360 at a price of 400 Microsoft points. ($5.00) Titled Return to Ostagar, this side quest includes several pieces of new armor and weapons, along with one new Achievement.
Judging DLC for a game that's as story-heavy as Dragon Age is a little difficult. In Return to Ostagar, the player's party gets a chance to return to the site of the fateful battle where two important characters were killed, and where the events of the adventure itself were set into motion. It's a key location, heavy with significance. However, having played the game upon its release, coming back to this mission now so long after the fact feels a little odd. Not to spoil anything for anyone, but I suspect this mission would've been a much better fit if it had been available before completing the main storyline."
