An amazing new story, characters, and world

Richard Baker "BinaryMessiah", Amazon
29 March 2012
  • Summary: The Good: 30 hours of game play, tons and tons of new content, better story, great new quests, new art style is wonderful The Bad: After you finish everything you'll want more, feels too much like Oblivion The answer is yes plus some! I enjoyed Shivering Isles a lot more than Oblivion (not saying I didn't enjoy Oblivion!) and there's just so much here! First off, the story is wonderful, exciting and better than Oblivion's.

An excellent add on for Oblivion

D. Silla, Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: As an extension to Oblivion content, Shivering Isles is excellent. Clearly, Bethesda programmed it instead of farming it out to some other company to work on. If you like Oblivion and want to play on, get Shivering Isles. Maybe it will help you make it to 11/11/11, the release date for Skyrim.

Amazing

Dave, Amazon

  • Summary: The graphics, gameplay, and map size were perfect, making for an excellent play. Just as when you first play Oblivion and it is as if there is a vast expanse of world to explore, Shivering Isles is much the same.

Oblivion is amazing!

SlangFox, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: If you even so much as subtly enjoy Oblivion you need to power on through to the shivering isles. It offers an array of new questlines and interesting characters. If your looking to bank achievements be sure to save before you become the duke of either mania or dementia. Great Purchase!

As Addicting as Oblivion

Ziggy Sterling, Amazon
8 November 2009
  • Summary: Finally got the expansion pack thanks to a buddy and I seem to spend all my off-time in the Shivering Isles. As addicting as the original game, but with more challenging creatures to beat and new objects to find/collect/use. I've just started, and the missions seem a little sparse, but then again, I have not scoped the entire isles. The missions do seem to take on a darker side and things are definitely more crazy than before!

An occasionally annoying distraction from the main game

Andariel Halo "Disillusioned Smark", Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: I got this expansion as part of the Game of the Year edition of Oblivion. I was highly skeptical of what I saw as basically a completely different reality world opposite of Cyrodill, and as such I put it off for maybe a year before deciding to enter with my new character. Please note that I am an obsessive-compulsive person, with a sick need for organization, decisiveness, and something else I forgot.

This is a great add-on to Oblivion

D. Chiossone "David Chiossone", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is my favorite game, and The Shivering Isles add-on is a must have to add additional quests and content. I would highly recommend this add-on for game enthusiasts. Another great add-on for this game is Knights of the Nine.

Sheogorath is hilarious!

Davidovich53, Amazon
21 September 2008
  • Summary: The Shivering Isles creates a new world for you to explore, with new monsters, new ingredients to try out at alchemy, a schizophrenic world to explore, and as part of the storyline you'll get a cool two-in-one sword, the Dawnfang/Duskfang. Plus the character of Sheogorath, the Prince of the realm, is what was missing in Oblivion proper: a fun and engaging NPC with bucketloads of personality!
