Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Shivering Isles
No one has ever written a review?
I began this expansion recently though I have owned Oblivion since year 1 of the Xbox 360's existence. This expansion also is packaged with the Nights of the Nine expansion, but I have not yet attempted any of that expansion. The Shimmering Isles is an enjoyable expansion that remains true to the Elder Scrolls storyline. After installing the game, you play with your Oblivion disk. After 24 hours of in game play, "a strange door" quest opens. After installation, you can simply rest for 24 hours to begin the expansion by traveling to the strange door. Though the expansion story does not affect the main storyline in Oblivion, I recommend that once you begin the Shivering Isles, you stay in that world to keep the strange feeling and pace of its storyline, even if you have not finished Oblivion. Why bother closing Oblivion gates when you can stay on another Daedric Plane? So, before you enter the strange door, come in as if you are never going to leave. You may not.
you can do anything in this game.
this game is amazing! you can do just about anthing, from picking ingrediants from plants, to casting magic spells! you'll have a blast playing this game
Why buy this when The Game of the Year Edition is out and includes Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine and a less glitchy version of Oblivion? I really don't see a reason to purchase this when GOTY is such a deal. If you haven't played Oblivion yet, get the GOTY edition and don't buy Oblivion and Shivering Isles, buying the two will cost more and they fixed a lot of the glitches from the original game, such as disappearing people and the game indicating a battle when there aren't any enemies for miles. this is not a good buy compared to The Game of the Year Edition.
Just when I didn't think Oblivion could get any better... Shivering Isles came out! I didn't think it was going to be a major expansion like it is, it gave me about 10 hours of gameplay including quests and exploring the awesome realm of Sheogorath. Shivering Isles has a great questline, good new characters, and a nice twist at the end! Any Oblivion fans should DEFINATELY get this amazing expansion.
Great for Oblivion owners!
Well, of course the reason to buy this instead of the GOTY edition is for all of us that already have Oblivion. Wouldn't make much sense to spend the extra $ to get another copy of Oblivion that we don't need. Looking forward to this, got decent reviews. Would much rather have a hard copy vs downloading it.
Seriously,to the other person below way below i guess.You still need the harddrive to play this game.Its not a game by itself.This is sorta like FFXI thing and whatnot,it adds stuff to the game and it downloads onto your harddrive and then you pop in your regular Oblivion disk and up there u go.
This game ROCKS!!!
This game rocks! If your thinking about geting Oblivion, you should just wait for this to come out. Its the same only theres more stuff. And one more thing, i like pie!
DONT KNOW YET
I know that this expansion is great but i still have oblivion i finish the story but theres a lot to do an i havent completed all the quest so why get the expansion. i know this is a good deal like for me because i have an xbox 360 core version so i dont have an hard drive to download this expansion and its good for people that have buy the core version and love oblivion. so if you finished oblivion pre order it in an eb games strore near you because its a great expansion
to the kid wondering if this is an expansion pack for Oblivion... seriously, did you close your eyes when you were writing your question? it quite clearly states on the package, "Expansion for Oblivion"..... and it is only 30 bucks.... i'm not trying to be mean or an eBully, but seriously people stop asking these obvious questions... its called common sense, use it.
Just like oblivion
This will be a great game. I've played the PC version, and it was very good. But this will be better. If you have beaten the game of oblivion, then you should get this. It features many things you can do. You can get horse armour, and if you defeat this, you also get a ring that you can control the weather with. The knights will also protect you if you are in danger. This will be a very good expansion pack. You should definetley get it.
