The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles
1 November 2007
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.

Conclusion: „Po všech stránkách povedené rozšíření, které je po rozporuplných Knights of the Nine konečně tím pravým důvodem pro oprášení krabice Oblivionu a další ponoření do světa Elder Scrolls na dlouhé a dlouhé hodiny.“
