  • Summary: As far as DLC goes, Shivering Isles is a prime example of DLC done right. It is curious how Bethesda's horse armour was a great example of how NOT to do it, and SI is the opposite. Like with Bloodmoon, the pack offers an entire new island which, in my opinion, surpasses the original game in terms of...

  • Summary: One of the best dlc expansions ever released. While the actual island is not that large in terms of space - (still pretty big) - it's a absolutely beautiful world. And unlike the dialog in oblivion, this game is seriously quirky.

  • Summary: In many respects superior to the main Oblivion game (possibly a case of over-familiarity in the case of the latter); Shivering Isles is huge, features excellent writing, fun and varied quests, improved voice-acting and best of all?

  • Summary: A good addon, a huge new set of quests added on top of an already epic game. This is a must get if you are a fan of the original game and wanna get back to play it again.

Great expansion to a good game

  • Summary: If you loved Oblivion, or even just -liked- it, pick this up. It's a great value. You won't want to go back to Tamriel ever again.
  • Pros: This expansion is simply amazing. Fantastic environments with beautiful colors. Each half of the island has its own theme, mania or dementia. In Mania, everything is glaring bright and colorful. In Dementia, a more dark and dismal theme is present. What's truly amazing is the emotions that the en...
  • Cons: Now, don't get me wrong here, I spent several hundred hours playing the original alone, but Oblivion is very flawed. As you would expect from an expansion, Shivering Isles inherits all of Oblivion's broken gameplay mechanics, including the unfair enemy level progression (lightning speed at level ...

  • Pros: Excellent addon, beautiful colors, interesting story, new weapons and armor. A must have.
  • Cons: If you are using your uber-character that you played through the first time don't expect much more of a challenge.
