ES4: Shivering Isles - Review @ 2404.org

by Dhruin, 2007-04-22 00:18:56

Another 9/10 for Shivering Isles with 2404.org obviously impressed in their review. Strangely, "many morally ambivalent quests" is listed as a "con" in their summary at the end.  Here's a snip:

The dynamic leveling system of the base game means you could go to the Shivering Isles with a first-level character or one that’s completed the main quests of the original game (i.e., past level 20) and be challenged equally either way, but it’s fairly clear the designers expected a hero at least in the late teens: it’s fairly easy to pick up a whole suit of steel armor within minutes of arrival, and other, similar trinkets are just a bit out of the power range of a starting player.  The quests themselves generally don’t require high-level skills, however, and beating them relies far more on a player’s ability than the character.
