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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
An occasionally annoying distraction from the main game

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.
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.
