After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, the throne of Tamriel lies empty. With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion open and demons march upon the land-laying waste to everything in their path. To turn the tide of darkness, you must find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.
Oblivion is the quintessential role-playing game for the next generation and another leap forward in gaming. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. Oblivion is the latest chapter in the epic and highly successful Elder Scrolls saga and utilizes the latest PC to fully immerse you into the experience. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the main quest at your own pace or explore the vast world and find your own challenges.
  • Live Another Life in Another World. Create and play any character you can imagine, from the noble warrior to the sinister assassin to the wizened sorcerer.
  • Next Generation Graphics. Pixel-shader effects and high definition televisions are fully supported to create unprecedented visuals, including lifelike towns, dungeons, and the most realistic forests ever created in a game.
  • First Person Melee and Magic. An all-new combat and magic system brings first person role-playing to a new level of intensity where you feel every blow.
  • Radiant AI. This groundbreaking AI system gives Oblivion's characters full 24/7 schedules and the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. Non-player characters eat, sleep, and complete goals all on their own.
  • Realistic Characters. Oblivion's features over 1,000 non-player characters who come to life like never before with facial animations, lip-synching, and full speech. They even engage in unscripted conversations with each other and you.
  • Open-Ended Game Play
  • Short Challenges. The enormous world of Oblivion is open for you to explore at your own pace, and shorter challenges such as fighting bandits, mixing potions, creating magic items and persuading friends keep the challenges coming.

I first bought Oblivion for my Xbox and loved it. After a while I got bored of it because I had completed most of the storyline quests and there not much else I felt like doing. However I decided to invest in the PC version and when I played (I used the cheat console) I was blown away with more options than ever I could buy the Skingrad house and do whatever I wanted without getting killed. Although there are a vast amount of bugs within the game as long as you don't do anything to trigger them nothing will happen. I think this game is a MUST BUY for any RPG players out there and personally I can't wait for the Elder Scrolls V.

 One word...Boring

I bought this game when it first came out hearing it was "The Best RPG ever!" I did not expect it would be as amazing as magazines and other people were makign it out to be but I thought it might be worth playing.

The game opens up well the assassination of the emperor makes for an interesting introduction however once you enter the overworld map you begin to realise that the game revolves around walking from place to place rather than fighting. I felt that the number of enemies was faar too low at times it felt just like real life (by which I mean uneventful)

I made a dark elf character on it and made him a mix between a close combat sword fighter and a destruction mage expecting that the combat would be good. Once I started combat my instinct was to use the sword, Once I used the sword I nearly wept it looks and feels like your charatcer randomly waves a stick at the enemy rather than cutting him with a blade. Once I suffered the atrocity of melee combat I turned to my magic which did more damage and was easier to hit with however once again I didn't feel any great sensation from using it. My first assumption was, well its the basic spell of course it isnt going to be great so I looked forward to getting more powerful spells which I soon did only to find that every fire spell and lightning spell uses the EXACT same animation and only does increased damage. Once this happened to me I was incredibly disappointed with the enemies being no challenge (I had the difficulty at roughly 80%)

Once I heard that I would have to go into Oblivion myself I thought "Great! finally some enemies that may be able to harm me" once I went in I was disappointed to find that all the enemies in Olbivion are weak as hell, it took me until just before the end of the game to find enemies that could seriously wound me in Oblivion.

Moving onto the story of this game, when playing it I felt my charatcer was a very deatatched errand boy for some generic NPC's infact the only characters I encountered who held any significance were Jauffre and Martin, all the other time I felt like I couldn't care less which is very different to how I felt when I played Deus Ex and Final fantasy 8 on the PC.

On a different note, the graphics for this game are amazing there's no doubting that the people look realistic and that the landscapes are beautiful but to me this is like putting a tuxedo on a tramp. The developers should have spent more time making the game enjoyable and challenging before making it look nice

in conclusion this game is probably the dullest RPG I have played in recent years, I could only bring myself to play it whenever all my other installed game were also completed. I also remember playing it when I split up with my girlfriend and I felt even more despressed because of it. Also to add an extra comment on the sword combat, I've got the right to judge how bad it is because I do Kendo in real life and its very exhilirating unlike this game. My final word one this is the one I opened with in the title.....boring

 Amazing

A game I strongly recommend buying. Have it on Xbox 360 and Ps3. Best RPG there is, as the main story line is great and the enchanting of weapons and armour is endless. Great side quests and if the game isn't enough, download the Shivering Isles Expansion Pack for a whole new story. Or get Knights of the Nine for yet another story. On Xbox 360, also there is extra DLC with a Castle and Wizards Tower.
Brilliant game. 5/5*
