Summary: How could the once great Bioware produce game that were suddenly getting blasted with red review scores? It all seemed to start soon after they were sucked into the 'Evil Empire, EA. They started to add something to their games called DLC. Presumably these letters stand for 'Done Like Crap'. Because they sure were. Almost every bit of DLC for Dragon Age and Mass Effect was a rip-off plain and simple. Some of it offered overpowered items.
Summary: For 800 Microsoft points ($10.00) you get a new one roomed store with high level loot that continues to get better equipment and items as you progress, the ability to change your characters appearance for free anytime you want to, a mabari war hound that can be summoned in battle (because it's not an actual companion), and a few free items, the problems are that all the loot you have to buy cost a lot of gold, and that it's not really all that much content for $10, the...
Summary: Its like an actual antique shop. You go in and you have a look around, but it smells funny and you don't really NEED anything there, so why spend the money? Items in the Black Emporium are powerful, and a good advantage early in the game for free, but they are strong for a level 1, once you level up, they stop being so appealing, and the items in the store part are expensive, and one could easily get past any part in the game without them.
Summary: I LOVE Dragon Age 2 and I intend to play it many times. I go the "Black Emporium" DLC as a free code, when I purchased the game and since it was for free, there is no need to complain too much. On the other hand, if I had spent 10 dollars on this I would be so mad. It adds a hidden store that is completely useless to the DA2 lore. Kind of pointless, I'd say. And I would not recommend to anyone.
Summary: I must say this is kind of dinky. the items you get here sell for 1 copper and they are expensive. Like ridiculously expensive. There are a couple of nuggets here but for the most part you are better off getting items from vendors elsewhere.
Summary: This DLC does not get the credit it deserves. It is a SHOP DLC the point of it is somewhere where you can get High level weapons if you have the cash! The Item system in Dragon Age: 2 Was horrible so why can't you make a Cheap DLC that All that's In it is a shop!? All in all it is a good and easy way to start the game with this DLC though a lot of the Items avalaible are very Expensive . One set of Gloves i was going to Buy Was 100 Soveirgnes.. Which is VERY expensive...
Summary: It's a store. You buy things. It is also filled with crap you can click on. Sometimes the proprietor comments on them. Also you get a dog that you can summon in battle. It's absolutely useless. That's about it. Enjoy.
Summary: As part of EA's "Project $10" goes, this is a respectable reason to buy Dragon Age 2 new. It includes a hidden shop that gives you several decent free items as well as three very useful features; A mirror of transformation that allows you to edit you appearance after the fact, several shops that have useful items such as "Maker's Sigh" that allows you to respec your characters talents, and most importantly the ability to summon a Mabari Warhound to assist you in combat.
