  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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. A solid adventure with a good story. Good value for money. [Jan 2007]
  5. 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.
  6. A whole new faction - and a memorable one at that - is a decent return on your cash. [Feb 2007, p.65]
  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.
  8. 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.

    Too short, and I had already paid for the other stuff, so the value is even lower. they should have offered the campaign as a standalone for those who had paid for the other extras. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »

    If you loved the quests in oblivion, you will love the knights of nine add on, it gives about 20+ hours of extra gameplay, a lot of the same kinda missions (dungeons retrieving artifacts) but different enough to be interesting, if you liked oblivion you will like knights of the nine expansion. plus u get a really cool set of armor.
