I have played through the Jaws of Hakkon when it was first released, and I thought it was okay. But I have finished playing The Descent for the first time just recently and I'm sure everyone else was just as amazed when they've beaten it as I was.

If you are still one of those who did not acquire Dragon Age: Inquisition, or if you own the console version of it and want to give it a go on the PC, BioWare has news for you.
