The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles is the official expansion for Oblivion - the 2006 RPG and Game of the Year. It features more than 30 hours of new gameplay as you are sent to explore an entirely new plane of Oblivion - the realm of Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness. Shivering Isles adds to the existing world of Oblivion, so you can continue playing with your existing save game/character, or create an all new character just to explore the new content in Shivering Isles. New creatures, weapons, armour, ingredients, branching questlines, and more await in the land of Mania and Dementia.

Enter the world of the Madgod - the Realm of Sheogorath. Inside this torn plane reside the sublimely creative and the completely psychotic. Something is happening to the Shivering Isles and Sheogorath himself looks to you to be his champion and defend his realm and its inhabitants from destruction. Do you have the strength to survive his trials, to tame a realm fraught with paranoia and despair, and wear the mantle of a God?
  • See a world created in Sheogorath's own image, one divided between Mania and Dementia and unlike anything you've experienced in Oblivion
  • Battle the denizens of Shivering Isles, a land filled with hideous insects, Flesh Atronachs, skeletal Shambles, amphibeous Grummites, and many more!
  • Find and wield new weapons and armour, or have new ones forged for you by the talented craftsmen of Crucible and Bliss
  • Explore a bizarre landscape filled with twisting, vast dungeons buried within the roots of the trees themselves
  • Unravel the mystery surrounding the endless cycle of madness and destruction that threatens to destroy the Shivering Isles

 Decent but not worthy of the full game.

I have got the Xbox 360 version of this and since I cant review that ill review this. The game starts with a portal appearing in the Nibenay Basin area in a little island. A resident from the Shivering Isles rushes out as soon as you arrive to give you a taste of the sort of madness that awaits you in the portal. The main thing about this in my opinion is, its different to the land of Tamriel. It has got many fun activities to be done, the funnest being rebuilding a 10-foot monster which you once destroyed to get into the realm. Just for the record, everyone in the realm is either disturbed, tormented or just pure CRAZY in some way or another. None beingmore so than Lord Sheogorath, the Madgod. He enlists your help to stop the almighty Greymarch which once every so often destroys the realm. All in all the Shivering Isles is something new and exciting in the land of The Elder Scrolls. It lacks a little in different side quests, with the same old search somewhere and bring back. Also I doubt there is 30 hours of new gameplay, ive got bout 10 thus far. If your willing to continue playing in the world of Oblivion and want something fresh for it with plenty new things then go ahead if your willing to part with £18. One more important thing. DO NOT kill yourself or attack Lord Sheogorath, you'll live to regret that you did.

 Worthwhile

The Shivering Isles is an expanion pack designed for people who enjoyed the original game and want to adventure some more and continue with their existing character (although you can start with a new character). The new dotyr is based in the unique relm of Sheogorath where you will go around areas you've never imagined before making it much more intesterting. There is plenty of new creatures, monsters, weapons, armours and dungeons, and whilst it won't last the 30 hours stated on the box it will entertain for plenty of hours and is definatly a worthwhile purchase for all fans of the original game.

 Not particularly inspired, but still valid

This is the first full featured expansion to Oblivion, and IMO it leaves a lot to be desired. You have a main quest that is more or less fine, what is lacking is the rest. Most side quests are simple or even contrived, people inhabiting the land of madness do not look so mad after all, and there is not much variety in the new lands.
Still, it deserves its price. Too bad they didn't take the chance to improve the original game interface, that still limits you too much. Some examples? The very few quickslots are not enough to cover all you will probably want to use: magic, different weapons, various items. So you'll still need to pause the game to quaff a potion, pick up a particular weapon or select an unusual spell. This breaks up immersiveness a lot, at least for me. Oh, and it looks like you still cannot delete spells unless you mess with saved games and the console. Shame on Bethesda for this one!

 GREAT

Most people on sites such as play.com just argue on how good or bad the game is, but i say, argueing on the internet is like the special oymlpics, dosnt matter if you win you will still be mentally deformed.

I loved the game when i first bought itfor ps3, i was slightly confused on well evrything, 2 days later and a read of the manual, i was as easy adn tasty as pie.
I have now bought it for pc with the 2 expansions, this is the better of the 2, it really is.

I wont spoil it, but lets just say the bethseda team really pulled it of! And at the end evryone will worship you as the true mad god!!!

 In the Wierd and Wonderful World...

The Madgod is falling and needs a new warrior to fight his evil foe... Order!

Go through a portal and appear in a completely new realm full of fantastic creatures and shocking horrors!!! And find out of the secrets that keeps the world of the Madgod in constant struggle between chaos and order!

In this new explansion for Oblivion, find an entirely new world in which to gain powerful weapons and abilities!

This is loaded with extra goodies! There is the main quest and many little side quests! Also when you gain 'power' (dont wanna reveal anything) you can control so much cool stuff like the weather for a set time... its ace!!!
