Saying that The Descent meets expectations may be damning this DLC with faint praise, but that’s also a fair summation of what it offers during its seven-to-10 hours of action. This is a pure sideline quest to the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition that plays out in a completely linear fashion and has no impact on the greater world. There isn’t anything particularly wrong with such a hack-and-slash dungeon crawl, especially one that features the fascinating background and backstory of the Deep Roads.

Even with its nasty hard combat, it still took me less than ten hours to complete The Descent and its side missions. Though the loot I snagged has kept me from completely regretting the time I invested in The Descent, I don’t feel like it’s the best Dragon Age has to offer. Hopefully the next DLC will have more exciting environments and better answers to Dragon Age’s more pressing story questions.

Even though there are a few beacons of light in the darkness, such as some meaty combat scenarios and stints of exciting exploration, The Descent is damaged by a disappointingly bad ending and too many underwhelming side quests. It's another expensive piece of DLC that doesn't quite justify its price tag unless you're a feverish fan of BioWare's latest.
