ES4: Shivering Isles - Review @ GWN

by Dhruin, 2007-04-03 23:54:52

Gameworld Network has kicked up a review of Shivering Isles, with a score of 95%.  This clip might be seen as a very mild spoiler:

In one wild example of the madness that is Shivering Isles. A man named Hirrus Clutumnus cannot bear the tortures of living, or the sheer pain of everyday life. He hires you out for a contract killing… on himself. He doesn’t want to see it coming or feel any pain. Once he’s dead, he tells you to rob his body of his house key and take whatever we want from inside. I chose to stalk him for an afternoon, and when he stopped to enjoy the view of the city from a high altitude vantage point, I shot him with an arrow in the back which sent him plummeting to his death. Upon hitting the street below, I hear a fain “finally, peace at last. Thank you.” That has to be one of the greatest highlights of the game considering it was so faint, I had to re-load the mission about 10 different times to catch exactly what he said. One word comes to mind, “brilliant”.
