when looking at this game you cant help but compare it to oblivion, there is just so much about it thats similar.
the only differences, are, oblivion has a hell of a lot more freedom. and a lot more to do.
but its stll great game, and its differences is what makes it good, if it were the same, it would feel like a crappy version of the same game.
the game is very linear in many ways, story, leveling, and its battle system is very simple, but still effective and fun. 4 diifferent classes of characters, adds quite a lot of replay value, as they are and play very differently.
while the 3 difficulty settings, difficult mode, is actually, not much harder than easy, so you might aswell start on difficult,
overall, its slightly rushed with one or two glitches, bad voice acting, but its a great game, if you look at it as a seperate game, and try not comparing it to oblivion unless you must, but if your looking for a hardcore RPG oblivion is the way to go, but this is a good playthrough for the less experienced or even hardcore players looking for a easier game. with fairly easy achievments aswell Go for it
