  • Summary: Knights of the Nine is a compilation that includes all the other Oblivion downloadable content released to date: Horse Armor, The Orrery, Wizard’s Tower, Vile Lair, Thieves Den, Mehrunes' Razor, and Spell Tomes. Knights of the Nine features an all-new faction and quests for noble characters and answers many of the questions surrounding the Ayleid ruins found throughout Oblivion. Players can join a new faction and found their own order of holy knights – leading them into battle against a sorcerer-king and his demonic minions while exploring massive dungeons and searching for legendary relics – the holy armor and weapons of the Divine Crusader.

  1. For what you’re paying, you’d expect this expansion to have one-sixth the content of the original game, but it strays far from delivering on this assumption. Still, if you’re desperate for more to do, letting the Knights of the Nine rest in peace has its short-lived rewards.
  2. The beauty of the game, as well as the depth of the immersion and the fun of the gameplay, is still here in abundance. Knights of the Nine is an essential addition for any Elder Scrolls fan.
  3. Given your avatar's snazzy new wardrobe, base of operations, minions and the righteous euphoria associated with being a force for good, The Knights of the Nine is well worth the 800 Microsoft points.
  4. While Knights of the Nine is a pricey piece of downloadable content, it's highly recommended for diehard Oblivion fans. Casual players who have yet to unlock all 1,000 Achievement points from the core game should hold off on buying new content until they've run out of things to do.
  5. A whole new faction - and a memorable one at that - is a decent return on your cash. [Feb 2007, p.65]
  6. Knights of the Nine isn’t in the same league as stellar Morrowind add-ons like "Tribunal" and "Bloodmoon" but any fresh reason to revisit the world of Oblivion once again is all right by us.
  7. If more of the same is what you're after, you can't really argue with what Bethesda's served up for its hardcore fans.

    Like any new well made content added to this game, be it fan made or made by the developers, is a must buy or get for fans of this amazing game. You owe it to yourself to get it if you own the original game. Expand

    Overrated and terrible. Elder Scrolls is just remaking a same game over and over just like Fable it gets very boring. I have never understand why Metacritic considers them a first person shooter. lol stupid Expand
