Excerpt: Typically, one expects a video game expansion to accomplish one thing: expansion. That normally refers to new content in the form of additional quests, locations, characters, and items. Expecting anything more out of an expansion would probably be asking too much. Bethesda agrees.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles (Xbox 360) Review
29 May 2007
Summary: This won’t convert anyone but if you enjoyed Oblivion then buying this is an easy choice. The world is interesting and fun but never as mad and crazy as it could have been which is a missed chance at doing something very special indeed.
Summary: $30 may seem a bit steep for an expansion pack, but Shivering Isles more than makes up for the cost with amazing content, a weird new world to explore and some of the craziest characters ever seen in a role-playing game.
