As if to answer the decades-old query posed by Iron Maiden in the single "Can I Play With Madness," Bethesda Softworks brings you The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles, an expansion in which you most definitely can play with madness. Shivering Isles is...

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...

The unique setting and duality of madness that Shivering Isles possesses provides an excellent backdrop for more Elder Scrolls adventuring. With more of just about everything, Oblivion's first expansion provides the player with over thirty hours of new...

Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles Game Review - Xbox 360

 

Upon entry into the realm, you are restricted to the Fringe, an area outside of the entrance to the Shivering Isles. So, in order to clarify things, when you first enter the mysterious doorway in Cyrodiil, you enter the Fringe; essentially, it's a door...

Shivering Isles offers so much entirely new content in the form of monsters, items, story, and memorable characters that it's hard to pass up

If 2400 points is a bit out of your reach, and you're not THAT big of an Oblivion fan to begin with

After surprising him with your survival into the realm, Sheogorath has employs you as his “champion” to defend the kingdom against the impending Greymarch, which takes place at the end of every era and is led by fellow Daedric prince, Jyggalag. You are...

Don't forget the Calming Pants.

This won’t convert anyone but if you enjoyed Oblivion then buying this is an easy choice. The world is interesting and fun but never as mad and crazy as it could have been which is a missed chance at doing something very special indeed. But whilst...

A refreshing expansion to one of the best RPGs in recent memory.

You'll be traveling to different areas within the Isles to fulfill various tasks given to you by the Sheogorath. The gameplay is exactly like Oblivion (which is a good thing) so you don't have to go in a specific order or follow a specific plot line...

At this point, I don't believe there's a lot I can contribute to the overall debate of The Elder Scrolls' brilliance. Online denizens seem to have universally agreed that it does what it does insanely well, even if there are still great debates on the...

Gives you a good excuse to pour 20-30 more hours into The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion ; Good main quest ; The new monsters and vegetation are impressive, particularly Mania's vibrant colors

More glitches than what I experienced have been chronicled online elsewhere, but just the ones I did experience were bad enough ; Feels a little too disconnected from the main game

Falling somewhere between the Morrowind expansions Bloodmoon and Tribunal quality-wise (with the former being the most memorable expansion pack I’ve played in any game), Shivering Isles is a worthy, but somewhat lacking, addition to the Oblivion...

Curiouser and curiouser.

Mania and Dementia; New stuff!; Some clever quests

Not crazy enough; Badly buggy; Did we need more Oblivion

It used to be that buying a console game gave you a certain quality advantage over PC gamers. Since console games couldn't be fixed once they were shipped, developers had to get things right the first time. With PC titles, however, game companies took...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles

 

When it was released last year The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was widely considered to be the first great role-playing game for the Xbox 360. It was massive in scale, beautiful to look at and full of dozens (if not hundreds) of quests to go on. This...

$30 may seem a bit steep for an expansion pack, but Shivering Isles more than makes up for the cost with amazing content, a weird new world to explore and some of the craziest characters ever seen in a role-playing game. If you loved Oblivion then...
