    Compared 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.Compared with the Bethesda DLC which came before - Bloodmoon, or even Tribunal - KOTN seems disappointingly insubstantial.

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. Expand

    Knights of the Nine is a nice big quest line, smoothly implemented right into the main game if you play the GOTY version, so I didn't even know I'm playing a DLC and I was perfectly happy with it, enjoying it more than Shivering Isles. 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 thatKnights of the Nine is a nice big quest line, smoothly implemented right into the main game if you play the GOTY version, so I didn't even know I'm playing a DLC and I was perfectly happy with it, enjoying it more than Shivering Isles. 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 Expand

  1. But even with so much free material competing for the attention of Oblivion fans, Knights of the Nine offers a compelling package of polished content. [Mar 2007, p.64]
  2. It’s not an adventure that’s going to blow gamers away, but for hardcore Oblivion lovers like myself, it gives us an excuse to keep on playing!
  3. While Knights of the Nine certainly maintains a high quality of gameplay that you might be expecting, it just doesn't last long enough.
