WorthPlaying has kicked up their own review of Awakening, in which they give the Dragon Age: Origins expansion pack an overall score of 8.5/10. Their final thoughts:
If you've been dying to jump back into the world of Dragon Age, well, chances are that you've already played or are currently playing the expansion Awakening. It's a solid follow-up to the first adventure, and it contains enough new abilities, content, items, plot and spells that it's definitely worth a look for any fan of the original title. Of course, as an expansion, Awakening also requires that you own, or at least have a save file, of the original game for this disc to work, so anyone who hasn't played the game is going to be left in the dark until he picks up both. If you were disappointed in the first entry, there's nothing here that'll make you fall in love with the game, so if you weren't a fan to begin with, then you'll probably want to pass on this one. For the rest of us, I really enjoyed Awakening and look forward to seeing more from this particular game world in the near future.
