  • 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. With Shivering Isles, Bethesda brings an entirely new continent of content to the television screen, but they fail to fix Oblivion's numerous issues.

  • Summary: Madness takes over the world of the Elder Scrolls.
  • Pros: New enemies, spells, weapons, alchemy ingredients and a whole lot more; great story with a few twists and surprises; new bosses are a blast to fight against.
  • Cons: Enemies could reflect the characteristics of Mania and Dementia a bit more instead of just different textures; more thorough side-quests would be appreciated.

  • Conclusion: Sfruttando la scia della nuova “game of the year edition”, Ubisoft propone un DVD che farà felici tutti coloro che non hanno voluto \ potuto aggiornare la propria copia di “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion” dal Market Place di Xbox Live. La qualità e la quantità dei contenuti proposti in questa espansione vale sicuramente la spesa che, considerando la presenza dell'ottimo pacchetto aggiuntivo “Knigths of the Nine”, risulta persino più contenuta di quanto proposto dal...

  • Conclusion: Skäms på er, Bethesda. Vi har fortfarande inte utforskat vartenda skrymsle av Cyrodiil och så släpper ni en expansion med ännu mer att göra, utforska och uppleva. Expansionen tar upp ungefär en gigabyte av min stackars 360-hårddisk och kostar 2400 poäng, så det är ingen liten patch det handlar om, utan ett fullständigt nytt spel kopplat till det gamla. När jag först installerat Shivering Isles händer... ingenting.
  • Pros: Nya monster, bra handling, samma snygga grafik som i Oblivion
  • Cons: Enformig musik, inga nyheter i det spelmekaniska
