Strategy Informer
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.

  • 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.

19 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Most of us at Maximum PC really dug Oblivion—some of us could do little else until we’d “finished” it, including sleep, eat, shower, or hit our deadlines…. When it was finally over, we went through a little withdrawal depression—there just wasn’t another game out or even on the horizon that appealed...
  • Pros: Fan created add-ons and cool effects

  • 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...
  • 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.
