  • Conclusion: Undoubtedly if you already have Oblivion then this expansion, the Shivering Isles, is practically already in your hand. It’s a real treat and even a break from the normal (boring?) lifestyle in the Heartlands by comparison. There’s a bounty of new swag, interesting characters and quests to be had in these isles of Mania and Dementia; a great expansion to an already great game.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles Review

20 August 2007
  • Excerpt: After untold hours exploring the realm of Daedric Prince and general nasty guy Mehrunes Dagon, it's easy to forget that just because his plane of Oblivion is reminiscent of Hell that the realms of his brothers and sisters might be equally different. Such is the realm of the oddly likeable, yet still insane, Sheogorath. The Shivering Isles might evoke images of an icy tundra but it's actually anything but.

  • Summary: Aside from one nasty fight, the new content’s a bit too easy. (If you’re looking for a challenge, it’s probably best to create a new character.) The add-on is really more about dialogue and politics than unbridled brawling, which might not be for everyone. And there’s not enough high-level kit to be found, either. However, the writing for this expansion kept us entertained throughout the adventure.
  • Pros: Fan created add-ons and cool effects
  • Cons: Some parts are a bit too easy

  • Excerpt: s been quite some time since I anticipated something with so much excitement that my palms became sweaty and my pulse raced. But, the nearer I came to arriving at the local Fry’s Outpost Tuesday afternoon of the 27th of March, the more excited I got. Anyone who’s been reading the DriverHeaven forums for any length of time over the past year will already know what a fan I am of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. (Fanatic, anyone?

28 March 2007
  • Summary: Shivering Isles adds more than enough new and interesting content to give you a great reason to dive back into the world of Oblivion.
  • Pros: A large, twisted, and beautiful new world to explore, lengthy main quest and plenty of side quests to keep you busy, some of the more cleverly designed quests are great, new items and crafting system to give you more loot than ever
  • Cons: The Prince of Madness is insanely annoying, simplistic fetch quests aren't very exciting

  • Conclusion: It will take you a good 20 hours to complete the major quest line, but there's plenty more to do afterward. With all the side quests to complete and territory to explore, you could easily spend 30 or 40 hours or more losing your mind in Shivering Isles, and you'll find that your time there is well spent. The quests, characters, and world in Shivering Isles are all as creative and intriguing as in the rest of the game.
  • Pros: A large, twisted, and beautiful new world to explore, lengthy main quest and plenty of side quests to keep you busy, some of the more cleverly designed quests are great, new items and crafting system to give you more loot than ever.
  • Cons: The Prince of Madness is insanely annoying, simplistic fetch quests aren't very exciting.
