Oblivion GotY Deluxe
Overall, if you haven't played it, get it.
While I know I said hardcore gamers above, you really don't need to be a hardcore gamer to enjoy Oblivion. In fact, I know many casual gamers who have played and LOVED Oblivion - I myself am just a hardcore gamer with a gaming rig and modding and all. Now that that's out of the way, we can skip right to the review. I'll be going over this in the different segments of GameStop's rating system. Gameplay: Gameplay is astounding in Oblivion, especially if you've never played before. Whether you're reaching your first sigil stone after climbing a tower in the depths of Oblivion itself, or just slaughtering your first mudcrab, Oblivion gameplay tends not to fall short. Oblivion's story is the best most of all - it's not just epic (like it should be,) but it is a relatively good story and keeps you intrigued throughout your playtime. Graphics: NOW. I've seen this one abused a lot, so let's get right into it. Oblivion graphics AREN'T THAT BAD. Sure, the face textures are sometimes blobs, and trees look more like flat meshes than actual trunks with leaves, but think about it. The game released March 20th, 2006. According the documentary made on the making of the game, it finished sometime in 2005, when it was announced. Now, let's think of when development started. We can only assume Oblivion may be 10 years old in itself, given Morrowind's 2003 release. It wouldn't be illogical to assume that the Oblivion project is about 10 years old from this date. That being said, graphics, especially compared to Skyrim, are bad, but honestly - they're not that bad. This brings another point. If Skyrim itself started development in 2006, and how advanced that game is, think about Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls 6? Amazing. Sound: Now, this isn't a tricky one. At all. Oblivion has an astounding soundtrack composed by Jeremy Soule, a fantastic composer. In fact, I find myself listening to the soundtrack OUTSIDE the game. Lasting Appeal: Yay, this one! Okay, I have some things to say, and I'm glad GameStop included this slider in here. Oblivion has some AMAZING replay value, as most of the Elder Scrolls games do. If Oblivion has up to 1000 hours plus of gameplay value in one playthrough, imagine multiple with different choices each time, and all of the mods you could install? (I myself have bought a digital version, I have no idea how modding works on the disc version. Apologies if it appears you cannot mod it.) CONSENSUS: 10/10, Outstanding
oblivion game of the yeard edition is am awesome game to play despite the fact that after you save tamirel you are not given the chance to be the emporer and should have had more quests for the kindom but everything else is awesome to play, the shiviring ilse is great to play a bit crazy but fun. nights of the nine though challenging is also great just dont attact the bear fyi
Best Game Ever
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, is one the best games ever. I honestly like this better than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. People who critisize Oblivion's graphics are too ignorant to understand that this game was made in 2006. The main problem is there's about 10 voice actors for the game and alot of voices sound the same. This game will really last a long time as there is so much to do. If you're new to The Elder Scrolls, this game might be a little confusing, but if you came from Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas, the game is more understandable. There are alot of great mods for the PC version. Overall this is my favorite game and I highly reccomend it.
This is the best Open world (and probably the only true open world) RPG set in a fantasy world. The gameplay is spectacular, and it being on pc, allowing mods just makes the replay value shoot through the roof. The only thing that is a little iffy about this game are the graphics. This game is phenomenal and definitely recommended.
Really good game.
This game was the first RPG i ever played and im happy to see that its still going strong. the only thing that could have made this deal better is if they put Battlehorn Castle in with the DLC.
Bad graphics great game.
Ok so I love this game, but the graphics are terrible. The things you can do are endless, and you can play for ever doing side missions, so i recommend it if you are up for a good game, but love good story, and long game play
same oblivion as the console version..literally.
Now dont get me wrong. Oblivion is a great, great, game. I've had it for years on the 360. I bought the PC version so I could do all the extras.. modding and creating my own personal oblivion using the construction set, etc. Turns out impulse encrypts the code so no modding can be done. You want a great oblivion experience, buy it for the 360 or buy it from the store. Do not recommend impulse.
