Games Radar previews Shivering Isles

Preview - posted by Vault Dweller on Wed 14 February 2007, 15:41:38

Another Shivering Isles preview, courtesy of Games Radar. Here is an overview:

So who will you side with, the Duke of Mania or the Duchess of Dementia? This is just one of the many choices you'll make during your 30+ hours in the Shivering asylum.
What weapon will you use, a sword or a blunt axe? Which dungeon will you visit first? Will you uninstall the game or continue torturing yourself with it? Speaking of torture...

Because Shivering Isles' total area is only about ¼ the size of Tamriel, the game's designers were able to really flesh out NPCs and storylines. In one morbidly fascinating mission, the Duchess of Dementia assigns you a companion who you can order to torture anyone as you see fit.
I'm surprised that someone would call this idiocy aimed at sadistic little fucks a fascinating, fleshed out design.
