ES4: Shivering Isles - Shivering Isles Review @ CVG

by Dhruin, 2007-04-12 22:24:03

Like one lone review before them, CVG isn't entirely convinced by Shivering Isles.  The score in their review is 7.5/10 and here's the introduction:

 My dad, tired of all those "X things to do before you die" lists, is making a list of things he doesn't want to do before he dies. "Go to Ikea ever again," tops his roster.

Here's mine. Purge the dungeon. Reactivate the artefact. Pass the trials. Recover the five pieces. "Take this crystal." I swear to God, someone in the supposedly offbeat madness-themed Shivering Isles actually asks you to "Take this crystal". And sadly, despite its gorgeously wonky scenery, Shivering Isles asks you to do far too many things I never wanted to do again after playing Oblivion - a game I love more than my pet frog who escaped and died when I was a child.
