The archdemon is slain and the blight is ended. However, Ferelden's freedom from evil was not without high cost, and the people are in need yet again. In Bioware's expansion, Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, a new unknown evil threatens. The Grey Wardens must be rebuilt, and Vigil's Keep needs bolstering - tasks which the player is placed in charge of, as the commander of the Grey Wardens. How they find the means, and who is enlisted is entirely open, but there are a few familiar faces and sights in this expansion pack. Bearing this in mind, does the game succeed in feeling like a continuation of the story, or does it just feel like an unnecessary outing?
