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 utilises the latest next-generation videogame hardware 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 Gameplay, 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.

           Incredibly deep, gargantuan mammoth of a title! Read on...

          Top 100  Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer

          I was sceptical when I dished out 18 quid for this, after playing morrowind (Which I thoroughly disliked and found, boring, backtracking, dark, and just plain dull!) Entering the game with negativity swimming in my bloodstream, I soon pushed it out and replaced it for a potent mix of pure addiction, wonder, and amazement.

          Starting off with a simple 'breakout' from your prison cell, you go through the sewers of the Imperial city, slaying rats and goblins in your path with a swiftly aquired bow and longsword and steering well clear of the Emperor's guards who escort him somewhere important. The storyline is rich and thoroughly engaging, and the action heats up quickly as the emperor is attacked and slain by a mysterious assassin's cult, leaving you to help his guards fight off the assassins and recover an important medallion from the emperor. A brilliant scene-setting to what is undeniably an incredible title for anyone who appreciates quality games.

          Prior to your first few tentative steps into the land of oblivion (and after clearing all the sewer muck off those robes!) The game examines how you have been playing and reccommends a class of warrior to you. After being reccommended "bard" ( no ta! ) I examined a huge list of around 15 other pre-made classes, and picked assassin. The classes determine what your characters main and best skills are, and ultimately picking the right class will suit the best way to play the game for you, and that is the best thing about this game...any class is useful. No matter how you like to play, swift and silent, fast and deadly, strong and brutal with the muscle to defend against attacks, you can confidently do every mission in this game. With the chance to ALSO pick your race of character (of which there are 10!) also with their own perks, and one of 12 birthsigns, each with it's own perks, and a frankly INCREDIBLE character design system (you can shape your bleedin' cheekbones...hows that for detail!) you can create your perfect character. From there on, it's up to you...

          Follow the main quest to save Tamriel! This is quite an enjoyable and engrossing main quest, and sees you acting as an imperitive cog in the downfall of oblivion (the evil guys!) and the protection of Tamriel from the invasion of Oblivion's minions, the "Daedra".

          Or, you can talk to any of the game's thousands of NPC's, accepting enjoyable, unique, fresh quests at every turn...assassinations, item recoveries, taking a team of other fighters to clear mines of goblins, looking for missing people...all the quests are fresh and imaginative!

          Or you can just explore the many hundreds of hidden caves, mines, and ruined elf-undercities that litter the game, each with their own story and treasure stowed within.

          One of the main selling points of the game is it's size (Clocked over 140 hours before I finally was happy to deem it "finished") but what really strikes me is the detail. Brief standout moments?

          You can break into any of hundreds of houses in the game, and steal anything you want while the NPC is in bed or out on business. Sometimes random bandits will ambush you on the road and demand your goods (You can slay them for this heinous act of course!). You can go the realm of Oblivion and close their gates, preventing the invasion of creatures upon key cities. You can spy on people and find out where they've hid important things!

          Basically, you can do anything (within reason), and everytime you turn the game on for that quick hour session, something new and exciting will crop up and make you smile at the sheer scope and variety this game throws at you.

          This game really is essential, and as far as they go, the best value for money you can possibly get. BUY

           Time to close shut the jaws of Oblivion? Not just yet.

          For a game thats tagline tells you to close it's namesake, this is definitely something you won't want to do upon playing. Quite frankly, Oblivion is, without a doubt, one of the more addictive titles avaliable today.

          The in-game world is huge. Crazy huge. And beautiful, too. If at any one time you think you've seen it all, suddenly you'll notice a brand new area with wonderous details, and you'll be instantly drawn in. It really would take weeks to see it all.

          And believe me, I've tried.

          As for Oblivion's main storyline - if you choose to partake in it - it's awesome. The characters are very well developed and rounded, and have genuine personalities that sound out. The AI dialog is always entertaining, and does well to keep the player interested and focused at all times. The plot itself is very inviting, and does well to blend the fantasy and horror genres seamlessly.

          For a game that is now over a year old, Oblivion continues to shine, and is a must-have for any lover of the RPG or Fantasy genre.

           the best game on xbox 360 so far

          i have had this game for a year and a half and i am still playung it it is that big.
          The only thing wrong with it is that some people comlain that it is too big.
          This is a must buy for any gamer 10/10

           Best RPG ever? I think it just might be!

          Having been into gaming for many, many years I would like to think I know what I am talking about. When I saw the screenshots and in-game footage before this was released I thought Bethesda were onto a good thing! I bought the limited edition of this game and was very, very pleased with what I got. I paid £50 for my copy and it was well worth every penny.

          Graphically this game is absolutely beautiful. The landscape is massive and objects in the distance look great. On a clear day (yes, the weather is true to life) you can see all across Cyrodil. Close up the detail is just as great. Blades of grass sway in the breeze and water ripples like nothing else I've seen in a game.

          The storyline is engaging and filled with hopes of legacy, fame and fortune. But you don't have to do that at all. I spent the first few hours doing side quests, joining guilds and fighting creatures in caves. You can pretty much do whatever you want. Be a thief, assassin, vampire, pirate or whatever your heart desires.

          The character creation can be confusing if you are new to the genre but there are plenty of forums that will help you when deciding on your character's traits.

          At this price you would literally be crazy not to buy this game! Beware, however, as once you start you will find it difficult to stop! 400 hours later and I still find new challenges throughout the land!

           Save your money!!!

          This game is amazing, that there is no question! As good as this game is, save your money and get the Game Of The Year Edition for £29.99 when it comes out in a couple of weeks! That has both of the expansion packs included. Knights of the Nine is 800 points on Live, whilst Shivering Isle is 2400! As you can see, 2100 points is 17 quid on it's own, so...you do the maths! Getting them in the one box is MUCH cheaper than this discounted copy! Just a word of advice!
