GB Feature: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn Review

Should you find yourself genuinely curious about Bethesda's third DLC offering for Skyrim, you'll be happy to know that we've put together a full review for the substantial add-on. A couple of paragraphs to get you started:
Other additions in Dragonborn include gem geodes, which you can mine for gems; craftable armor sets, including bonemold and nordic carved; shouts, including Dragon Aspect, which gives you a significant bonus to weapon damage and shout power once per day; enemies, including rieklings (pygmy scavengers), netches (floating jellyfish-like creatures), and albino spiders; crafting materials, including stalhrim ("enchanted ice") and netch leather; and more. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, these additions are restricted to Solstheim, so they won't change anything in the main part of the game.

One of the new shouts in the DLC pack also gives you the ability to ride dragons, but this feature isn't implemented especially well. You're only given minimal control over a dragon, so you can't use it like a traditional mount, and combat while mounted isn't fun at all, as dragons still take their time circling and sweeping when attacking a target, and so battles take forever. That being said, you can use spells and shouts while mounted on a dragon (but not bows for some reason), and so dragon riding might be a better fit for spellcasters rather than the melee specialist I was playing.
