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: Right in the middle of the Niben Bay of Cyrodiil lies the entrance to the realm of Sheogorath called the Shivering Isles. Here you'll find some bizarre things and even more bizarre people. Shivering Isles is the expansion pack to the brilliant Elder Scrolls: Oblivion.
Summary: I got this from the download on Xbox 360 live and wish I would have waited for the disc to be released! It's a great addition to the original with new environments, monsters, skills, items etc.....Welcome to Oblivion the Dark side. It is fun to be bad, and they all are- and loony.
Summary: As anyone who has played Oblivion would well know, it is a game that, even when the main quest is finished, there is still tons to do. Well this expansion "The Shivering Isles" should not be missed by any fans or anyone who wants something new to do.
Shivering Isles and Knights of Nine, good add ons to a great game

Summary: When Oblivion first came out for the 360 i put 80 hours into, finished all of the guilds and most of the side quest, after over saturating myself i took 8 months-1 year break, and decided recently it was time to get back into it and I have beat Knights of Nine(which is also on this very same disc)...
Summary: As much as I liked oblivion I have to admit the environment became a little monotonous compared to the diverse areas of Morrowind. The Shivering Isles expansion is a great addition to Oblivion and somewhat completes some of the gaps that I felt were present in the environment.
Summary: After you download the disk onto your 360 you use your old Elder scrolls disk to play. It takes a minute everytime you start to play. New characters, plants and missions keep you interested. I have yet to find anything worth much as far as weapons. They seem to be the same old ones.
Summary: If Oblivion is much like Lord of the Rings than Shivering Isles is that combined with the lost mind world of Alice in Wonderland. SI is a world of two sever mental illnesses, dementia and mania. In the middle of these two worlds is the Daedric Prince of Madness himself.
