Whether randomly exploring, grabbing side missions or working out the main quest, which involves saving the islands from being destroyed by a being called Jyggalag and his army of machine-like Knights of Order, this is just the shot of creative energy this game needs. We do wish it was cheaper, and heaven help us, why on Earth did the developers recruit the same handful of voice actors? This is a different country - people could and should sound different. But ultimately, this 15-30 hours of gameplay is a must-play for anyone, even if you didn't finish the main game.
The second is at Just RPG with an overall score of 91%:
Overall, I was very pleased with The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, and would highly recommend it. The download is pricey, but the content is varied, interesting, and most important, plentiful. Be prepared to let your loved ones know that, once again, you are a non-factor in real life and instead are going to take another journey into the world of Oblivion: Shivering Isles.
The third is at Game Over Online with an overall score of 85%:
Shivering Isles offers a whole new world to explore with new stories to experience. From a shear hours-per-dollar perspective the expansion pack is more than worth it. For those who explored every nook and cranny of Oblivion and were somehow craving more, have at it you doubtless will not be disappointed. For those, like me, who maybe had enough, more time on the all-you-can buffet line isn't really a good thing.
And the fourth is at GameShark with an overall score of "B+":
You get your money's worth out of Shivering Isles, even at $30; however the game does use 10% of your available hard drive space on the original 360. You can spend a nice amount of time (more than a weekend, in between eating) enjoying the area and you'll always be occupied doing something. If you can get over the price, the expansion is an easy sell really due to the unique setting that is completely unlike old Tamriel the quests make for a more well-rounded main character, making it great for people just starting out as well as seasoned players.
