Shivering Isles features more than 30 hours of new gameplay and allows you 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.

Well, this is what we Oblivion fans have really been waiting for. New weapons, armor, spells, quests, 1/4 the landmass of cyrodil, and some twisted fun. 2400 points on Xbox Live, for those who wish to know it. And in an interview I read, this will be the last in Oblivion for a long while, as the staff interviewed said they will be putting all their effort into Fallout 3, which is fine by me. Cool stuff, though I still wish Bethesda would have made the original Oblivion main storyline a bit longer and deeper, but I guess you cant have everything.
Okay, Here's the story... My friend and I got Oblivion for 360. It was awesome. Just about the best game we had ever played... Then, we got to about level 34. It was pretty boring. We mastered the whole game... Nothing left to do, but go on huge rampages, where we would kill just about everyone in the entire game. Then I saw this expansion, and I thought: Maybe this will make the game interesting! I read about the armor/ weapon crafting, and the new faction, and the +30 hrs of gameplay, and I said: We are totally buying this. This is gonna be sweet... P.S. I hate Morrowind. The game sucks, super user unfriendly AI, and super lags and bugs. (Gave me like 3 BSoD's).
One year and six days after Oblivion launch, the expansion is upon us. What you'd expect from an expansion is here, new weapons, armor, story, characters and land. Estimated to be 1/4 the size of Cyrodiil (the setting for Oblivion). Shivering Isles is massive for an expansion, virtually a stand-alone game. If you own Oblivion, you owe it to yourself to experience the Shivering Isles expansion. Sheogorath awaits!
its going to be one of the best expansions ever. its going to resemble morrowind and have an oblivion touch. i am dissapointed that they're not going to continue working on oblivion for a while. its a good 50-60 hours of game play, but something like a possible return to the imperial providence....morrowind would absolutley amazing.
Wow. All these idiots know nothing about this expansion. It will retail for a rumored 30 for 360 via XBL with 10 more achieve for a total of an extra 250 gamer points. SI will feature a brand new area 1/3 the size of cyrodill with a whole new plot line and side quests. The scale of all objects is larger and the pyhics engine will be used more in the expansion for example a large gate keepre made of bones that will fall apart into small pieces. If you want to know anything else about this expansion google it or go to bethsdas website dont listen to this uninformed morons
I've got Oblivion on Xbox360, da graphics kick @#$!! The game play is much more user friendly than my beloved Morrowind(while weapon is readied; use of spells, hotkeys, etc.) they should have made a quick in-game weapon select feature also, however! Bethesda has GOT to make this expansion 4 da 360!!! I have yet 2 access xbox live, but when i do I'm no doubt getting all available content. As well I know many of you will too! Is it possible 2 make an expansion pack on disk that can be added to our original game disc content for da 360?
This is going to be the best expansion pack ever. you get to keep your character and you get at least 30 hours of game play. it is going to be wicked awesome. i have already pre-ordered it and i wish it would come out sooner.
im playing ELDER SCROLLS:OBLIVION ON XBOX 360 and just when i see the image of SHILVERING ISLES i go on the web sites.. elder scrolls oblivion is the best game ive played in all my life it simple it the best.. if you have not buy oblivion..then,man buy it today and when SHIVERING ISLES will be available in eb games stores you can be sure ill have it the first day...they must make an ELDER SCROLLS 5 they must not leave that game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is great! I saw it in my xbox 360 magazine demo disc.This features new armor, wepons, countless new enemys,new alchemy,plant life, people and a storyline that will take well over 15 hours (including side quests)Oh and the best thing is that everyone doesnt have the same voices anymore. This is like oblivion in a more Alice and wonderland setting its a must buy for any ESO owner! Get It fast trust me!
It's Oblivion need I say more. I could care less whether or not they include new achievements....the hardcore will purchase this anyway. Achievements are everything they don't make the game great either....in fact there are quite a few crappy games that have achievements...man they cursed us with what could of been something cool is now an annoyance! Game to Game not to BRAG ARGH maties.
The new upcoming expansion(shivering isles) will not have any new achievments[said by oxm, they used them up all 50 and 1000 points] but don't worry too much about that since from the reviews and the reports you'll make a great impact on the world. And also try sick out weapons and armor. And "handpick" a guardian. (once you get to "handpick" you'll get the joke)
Insane! Oblivion for the Xbox 360 is probably the second best game for it! It's awesome 30+ more hours to spend my life on Xbox, as if 200+ wasn't enough! I heard that you're going to have to download it off the marletplace for 360, that is going to take a lil while! I can't wait for this to come out and i'll download it as soon as it comes out for the 360
But this game it is going to be sick nasty the graphics, game play, hours of game play it is the expansion to the greatest game ever made you can do wat ever you want if u want to do the story and other stuff or you can just slaughter of towns lead some lambs out to slaughter do watever u want buy this game BBBBRRRRRAAAAAATTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

looks good. Might use this as a post game.
This looks pretty good. I'll probably buy it off the Xbox live store.
Unless Bethesda includes options that modify current ingame content (such as rebuilding Kvatch, or the ability to subdue enemies to have them surrender rather than kill everyone).... This is only going to be more of the same with afew bug fixes. I do wish them well, but I have no hope.
This game looks absolutely awesome! From what I've played of Oblivion and Knights of the Nine, this game is gonna rock...with an entire twist to story and characters this will be a must have for Elderscroll lovers! I agree that they should never let this game get old!!! EVER!!!
