OK, i was sitting pretty far from my monitor.

Upon closer inspection, its average. :p

Still has a nice feel to it though.

So, they speak about free the first week, so free to download, so once downloaded u don't need to pay for it anymore once the week is gone?

Well, this addon will be Oblivions official retirement for my rig. After I run through this one I'm going to uninstall it after being on my rig since it came out. Time to move on to The Witcher and Hellgate London.

Elder Scrolls 5 can't come soon enough.

Same here. This will be Oblivion's last hurrah on my machine; after putting well over 500 hours into the game, its gotten old (even with a ton of mods). And I really need to get back the 10GB of disk space!

Hopefully ES5 will use a Crysis-like engine (the hills north of the prototype factory and south of the river remind me of the Great Forest, only better looking), and have an ES3 style plot/story (Oblivion's plot/story was too simple, and while the main quest was the worst offender, the guild quests also suffered).

main story was pathetic, about 6-7 hours of gameplay for RPG

I like the taxedermy thing... I checked it out with my poor character so I could only afford a few things, but I made a wolf and troll statue and they looked pretty cool, they're even sort of in a setting...

Otherwise it's thoroughly average. The castle looks like all the others and the battle was lame as you can get. I guess the practice room gives you an NPC to whack on over and over for leveling, but it's not like mods haven't done that before now, and it's semi-cheating if you ask me.

I'm an Elder Scrolls fanboy so I will have Oblivion on my machine for a looooong time, and I even play the PS3 version when I'm in the mood for couch gaming, but all the download stuff for Oblivion sucks if you ask me, other than the actual expansions.

Well, I played through the addon and actually even though the battle was far too easy (what battle?), the castle is really cool. It would have made a nice base of operations early on in the game. Lots of chests, display cases, features and crew. Nevertheless, it was my last Oblivion expedition. Oblivion has been uninstalled after playing the game itself, nearly all side quests, the expansion packs and several addons. Lots of fun!

Played it. Was disappointed. The battle was meh. I have just under 100 mods installed and this one counts as average.

But I can't wait for TES 5!!!!
