  good game

| | See all ternimate6's reviews (8)

Oblivion is great but there isnt much variety in the fighting as you cant do many moves
But otherwise it is a great game as you can choose your path you can be an assassin or you can help people

  Must have

It´s hard to understand why someone could give this game a single star. Oblivion is, for sure, a "must-have" for anyone who enjoy roleplaying and, at least for today, one of the best RPG Bethesda has developed. Just 20 for a game who will keep anyone who likes RPG busy during more than 100 hours?. I think this is a great deal.

Oh, and graphics are preeeetty good. It cant be compared with Uncharted or MGS4...but Oblivion´s world is, by far, bigger.

Must have!!

  DON'T DO IT

Sometimes I wish I didn't read other peoples reviews, what a waste of my time this game is! received it 2 days ago, thought i'd give it a go, after 3 hours totally un impressed. The visuals are shockingly bad. Storyline could well be good but I just don't see it, bored of it, not even going to sell it on as I wouldn't want to put someone else through the pain i've experienced with it. As bad as Beowulf

  Top 5 games for PS3

| | See all tinho29's reviews (4)

An awesome game, so much to do and see. I have had the game nearly a year now and im still finding new places where i havent even been before. A must have game for any PS3 owner, especially at this low price.

What an awfull, clunky and ultimatley boring game. It is neigh on impossible to do anything compared to other games I have played, how this game can be so "highly rated" I do not know!? The game play is tedious the controls are overly complex and laggy and not the most important I know but the visuals are not what I would expect from a "next Gen console". Save your money go elsewhere unless you wish to spend hours getting frustrated with this.

  One of the top 3 to 5 games on the ps3, a must buy.

| | See all iamchris's reviews (1)

This game is quite easily in the top 5 ps3 games out so far. Id put it ahead of GTA4 as i thought that wasnt as good as it was made out to be.
This game is simply beautiful, the music is orcastrated, the graphics is stunning, especially the lightning and the game play really doesnt ever have to end.
Theres so much to do on it its unreal, its pretty overwhelming at first but once you get into it your social life will be gone inna flash for months. It takes over an hour just to get out of the sewers at the start to finish your character creation.
The gameplay is awesome aswell, wielding magic or just slashing everything with a sword or axe in a frenzy, you can really do what you want, read books or summon otherworldy creatures to your aid its upto you. Before you ever start doing the story and the various sub plots you can spend well over 20 hours simply exploring the world and collecting items. you can spend well over 20 hours simply increasing your skills and levels without even doing any of the story line aswel its that big. The story line and sub plots will take over 40 hours probably for first time players and for the ps3 theres the 'knights of the nine' quest which will add on many more hours of game play.

The bad points.

The game can be a bit glitchy at times for example the loading, or if you jump out of a city via over the walls, then youll know what im onnabout by glitching. The game sometimes goes a little bit jumpy when the area your travelling loads up as you play, what do you expect for such a massive RPG game.
I wish the game had been a little more 'epic' at the end with more soldiers and enemies.
And the faces of the people of tamriel are somewhat funny and scary. Eg. the elderly people look more like theyve been inna horrific fire and burnt and scared all their face rather than being old.
All the characters in the world are played by probably 4 voices which seems a bit odd after a while.

Overall these bad points arent much and are easily put aside by the good points.

The game even has the voices of Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart.

If you like customisation of your character then youll love this game, customisation from the face, his or her race to his skills and attributes.

Id put this game alongside metal gear solid 4, GTA4 and COD4, which in my opinion are the top games for the PS3 so far.
This is a must by and one of the best games ive ever played.

So many glitches in this game it's so poorly made.
One time I played it wouldn't load this guy I had to get a quest off and I was stuck from there. What a Load of bull.

Get Fallout 3 when it comes out, way better.

One of the best games I've ever played. A must have for any RPG fan. Sadly you will lose all your free time to this game, things like food, drink and partners will become an after thought. :)
