The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn DLC Review

Rock, Paper, Shotgun is offering their own, largely positive, take on the Dragonborn DLC for Skyrim, which has recently been released on PC. Here's a snip:
That major let-down (and the underwhelming nature of the villain) aside, Dragonborn is by far the most essential Skyrim add-on to date. All of Skyrim's existent sins persist, so it'll do nothing for those who didn't get on with the parent game, but those who did will be eminently grateful for more of the good stuff, in a setting that combines both spectacle and fan-service. Hell, there are even a couple of good, and funny, characters, which is not something I'm used to saying about recent Bethesda games.

I must admit that I've increasingly felt negative towards Skyrim since its first weeks, but by getting Skyrim basics right and lending a little more wildness too, Dragonborn reminds me that I'm being churlish. There's still so much Skyrim is short of, still too many situations which are resolved by violence alone, but within the confines Bethesda set for themselves they've really done ever so well here.
