Skyrim Dragonborn PS3 Review: Forget The Other 2, This Is Where It’s At

By  | 

People with the Xbox 360 have been playing Dragonborn for some time and they have been telling owners of the PS3 that the game is worth the wait. If you haven’t got the DLC yet you should get it.

Dragonborn brings Solstheim into HD and it is the 3rd DLC for Skyrim, but the first to be released on the PS3. The land was seen in Blood Moon, Elder Scrolls, Morrowind and it does have a look that is similar to Greenland, with the exception of snow goblins and dragons.

When you start the game you will be fighting with two cultists and they do everything they can to kill you. You overhear them talking about Miraak and Dragonborn and when you kill them you find a note which tells you to go to Windhelm. Here you will find transport on a boat to Raven Rock. You find out a lot about the Temple of Miraak and about the plans he has to take over the All Maker Stones and kill you.

Throughout the game some quests are seen to be competitive, however in order to get your hands on the stones you do have to go through them. You will soon find where you can find them as you will see workers hammering at a rock. Here you will need to use the Bend Will Shout and then kill everything that appears from the rock. You can them move to the next rock.

Each of the stones is harder to get and you will have to kill Lurkers. These are similar to the Mind Flayers, which appeared in Dungeons and Dragons. There are three types of these, with each of them being a lot worse than those who came before.

There are many quests which will take you through settlements. There are also Black Books to find and you do have to decipher these, as they lead you to Apocrypha. This is where you can find Miraak. Here you will find cathedrals and bridges that float and you also learn all the abilities of the Black books. When you have learnt these you can use them to take control over dragons and men. You will also be able to ride the dragons. Miraak is one of the scariest foes that you will meet, and this could be down to the horned mask he always wears.

You could get a sense of having been here and done it all before in the game. However the DLC provides many hours of fun, even if you decline to tackle some of the quests. Dragonborn is very entertaining and it does happen to be the best of the three DLCs. This one will have you running back to Skyrim and your console and those who own the PS3 will find that it was worth the wait.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
