Brilliant Game bar from one major flaw,
This review is from: Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
This is a brilliant collection of the original game, its expansion and its DLC. I enjoyed the original game by itself for days at a time playing through it quite a few times without it ever getting boring and now with extra content I can play it for even longer with all the additional content. However, EA have made a major error with accidentally not putting the 'Return to Ostagar' DLC in the Euro version of the package. Although annoying they are resolving the issue, freely I might add, so this hitch won't be as big as it seems. Also includes the Dragon Blood Armour in the package, just for anyone who is wondering.

Are the other content packs ([former] DLC) on disc or is this one of those charming voucher collections?

All DLC that is promised is on the disc, except Return to Ostagar, and just requires a simple download from the disc to the PS3.
For the Ostagar DLC there is a complicated way of obtaining a redemption code, in which the method to obtain it can be found on certain websites and requires being part of a couple of website, but at no additional costs. Hope I have been of some help.

But if players don't have a way to connect their PS3 to the internet they're out of luck, which is my situation. I'm really dipleased with this blunder from EA since I purchased this version of the specifically because I didn't need to go online to download any content.
It doesn't help that for the moment EA has made no statements about having any plans to help customers that are in the same position as me.

I totally agree with you on this problem. It is with that exact same reason for which I too bought this product and EA's blunder made things quite a bit more awkward than I had planned.
However, there is still a fair amount of extra content with the package and the game is still as enjoyable to play, even with such a major oversight.

I completely agree with you, Tanthalas. - Thanks for the reply, Grymie.

My sister wants this for Xmas, and I was just wondering if it's worth the money?? She has the original Dragon Age Origins for PS3 and wants the expansion packs, but are they worth the money? What's the lasting time for playing the expansion packs, in particular Awakening, if you know.
In reply to an earlier post on 25 Nov 2010 08:41:01 GMT
In my opinion, this collection is really worth the money as it is much cheaper than buying the packs seperately. The total game time of the packs adds up to around an extra 24 hours of game time(Awakening itself took me around 15 hours to comlpete) but the time is irrelevant, again in my opinion, as the packs added much in terms of fun to the already extremely enjoyable original.
I hope I have been of some use in regards to what you were asking.

I thank everyone for the comments they've been really helpful, i'm a massive fan of the game and i was wondering (after already completing both the original and the expansion) whether it was worth getting this set, but now i know you get the extra content it sounds well worth it, i've always wanted to play as that stone guy (forgive me i played it along time ago and forgot his name) but couldn't cos as others have said i can't download. Thanks especially to the people who gave the heads up about the mistake, i will defo go for the 360 version because of this.
Finally thanks to the original review :) will be buying this tomorrow so i can prepare for dragon age 2
