    An engrossing but overly geeky sortie. [Jan 2007, p.84]
  2. The problem is that most of the downloadable content is aimed at specific character types: a pure combat character probably won't give a stuff about spell tomes or a Wizard's tower, while the average mage will find the powerful new quest items totally useless. You're far better off just choosing the content you want online, and this works out a hell of a lot cheaper too, even if you buy everything (£12).

On the other hand, I see where disappointment for some people is coming from if they had to specifically paid for this, but I mostly prefer DLC's that expand on the main game rather than trying something completely different, so as a part of GOTY, this worked flawlessly for me. 7/10 Full Review »

    Compared with the Bethesda DLC which came before - Bloodmoon, or even Tribunal - KOTN seems disappointingly insubstantial. The quests haveCompared with the Bethesda DLC which came before - Bloodmoon, or even Tribunal - KOTN seems disappointingly insubstantial. The quests have some great moments, but they're mostly just a series of fetches with a handful of interesting dungeons. I don't mind the DLC's size, but Knights of the Nine doesn't really offer that great of a questline compared with most available in the main game. The armour set is interesting, but the whole expansion suffers from the same generic vibe that plagued Oblivion: I just find it out of place when terms like "Katana" and "Crusader" are used in what is meant to be a completely different world. KOTN is by no means bad, but I'd have to rate it lower than any other TES DLC I've played. Best to buy it with the GOTY edition. Full Review »

    I think its the best game ever between Morrowind(with Tribunal and Bloodmoon) and World of Warcraft.
