Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition
Very excellent game. Great gameplay, opportunities, items, roaming abilities. Graphics are OK, but considering how old it is in the game world, it's actually pretty good graphics. There are a lot of glitches though. I am a vampire, on the vampire quest for potion, and there is a big glitch that won't let me give the lady "Bloodgrass." a key ingredient to the vampire antidote. Some other glitches that cause the game to crash, but I've only had it crash about 3 times in all my playing. On the good side, there are some duplication glitches that allow you to multiply certain items, which makes the game a bit easier. There are no patches available, so I've heard, so don't become a vampire, and if you do, go pray at an altar or something, otherwise you're stuck for good.
still a classic!
i had this game for xbox then i got a ps3 so i traded in my goty xbox version. when i heard this ultimate edition was coming i had to get it and so i did. i love everything about this game and the $30 is worth it; the steelbook case, the map, the expansions, however, it also comes with a coupon to get a $10 visa gift card to put towards the upcoming elder scrolls: skyrim which i thought was pretty nice then i read the fine print. you have to buy skyrim and the stratedgy guide together on the same receipt, send the coupon with that same receipt then they send you the gift card. thats kinda lame in my opinion but this game is still an all time classic.
im glad i hav it!
i just got this game edition and im glad i hav it because me and my girlfriend luv this game so much she's better than me!
My 2nd fav game of all times.
God where do I begin. This game was groundbreaking, and is still amazing even compared to games that are several years newer then it. This game is from the creators of Fallout. That is the best game to compare to it. Bethsda also created brink, but that is a completely different game style/path. This game has tons of content to unravel, tons of stories to play, tons of dialogue to go through, you can easily sink 100 hours or more IN GAME and still find stuff you haven’t seen before. That’s a big thing Bethsda strives for, making a game that is not only long, but also has great replay value.
If you want a mideval game that is as close to real as possible, this is the best choice. Everywhere from looting enemies, scavenging ruins, treasure hunting, using armor, repairing armor, using weapons, maintaining weapons, bartering, making allies, dealing with enemies. Assassinating targets in realistic ways, etc etc. The in game world (graphics) are a thing of beauty. They were amazing for there time, and are still great for modern times.
I could go on and on about what makes this game so great, but it’d easily be a book in length. There is so much this game has to offer. It is also ideal for users without online. Very few people prefer to play solo games, but the games AI are so realistic, that you will feel like you are in an actual game. The Elder scrolls is more of a simulation, then a video game. I recommend this to everyone. If you are disappointed, then there is something seriously wrong with you.
This is the exact same thing as the Game of the Year Edition of Oblivion. Same expansions available and same expansions missing (look at the PC and 360 versions for details.) This is an extremely sad way to milk a game, and this is coming from a die-hard Oblivion fan. Find the Game of the Year Edition, I gurantee it's cheaper and you get the same results as this game.
A great game
I first purchased Oblivion about four years ago. I had my Xbox 360 then, and I had never played it before. When I did play it, I couldn't stop, it was so much fun and so addicting! After having it for a year, I actually got tired of it. I had made around seven characters, all with different skills, talents, etc. I decided It was getting a little boring. So I sold it. A year later, I saw the special game of the year edition at my local Walmart. It was only 20 bucks and it had both expansions, both of which I never played. I bought it for my PS3 because my 360 got RROD. The PS3 version has much better graphics, however it is riddled with bugs, glitches and occasional freezing. Nevertheless, I played the tar out of it. After another year of playing it, I decided to sell that copy. Now it is one year later, and I'm actually craving some Oblivion. Call me obsessed, but Oblivion is a true masterpiece. Can't wait for Skyrim.
First this game is just great i love it very entertaing game and fun to play definatley get it i wasnt sure if i should get i did i am glad i did to the 5 anniversy edtion with steel book is cool just get the game you wont regret it
Great for fans of Fallout and newcomers to series.
This game is a wonderful deal for only 30 dollars. It's a hugely good deal because shivering isles itself in the playstation store is 30 dollars. You also get Knights of Nine which I dont think is for sale on playstation. I think of this game as a fallout that only uses melee weapons in the weapons side of things. All other skills mostly are still intact with the game, as this was kinda the base of the new perspective of fallout. The metal case is nice an kinda reliable, the map is kinda small but makes a pretty good wallhanger, the bonus dvd is interesting on how they created a game with so much choices to make and how they made it to the players liking. I think you should get this one before you even attempt to preorder skyrim. Well because its only for sale on the nextgen consoles and you should get to know the game a bit to get a headstart.
Same 'ol game, perfect for newcomers to the series
Ive put a good 100-200 hours into this game back when it first came out (on both PS3 and Xbox360). This 5th Anniversary Edition is basically a slightly fancier re-packaging of the Game of the Year edition. I dont find this to be a bad thing though.......their goal in doing this is to gain some extra fans to the series before Skyrim comes out and from what i see its doing the trick. Alot of people are complaining about how this PS3 version wasnt given trophies or didnt get any major glitches fixed (these people being older fans). And i can understand their irritation with that, cause I myself was upset when I found out that the trophies were not going to be in this game. But like i said we arent the main people they are targeting with this edition (even though I personally bought it since i traded in my GOTY edition for it months ago so had no real choice in that matter). But Im honestly discovering Cyrodiil all over again, its been so long since ive played the game that it feels like ive never played it at all. and im loving it! The music and feel of the game still draws you in after all these years. The graphics still feel like they hold their own well enough too. The character models are a bit rough around the edges, but the upcoming Skyrim will be fixing that soon enough! The most fun comes out of exploring and doing all the guild questlines. So really when it comes down to it if you are a fan of any open world RPGs and you havent played Oblivion yet, now would be the perfect time to pick this edition up. I hear its pretty limited though, and the price tag is very decent.....so best get it before its gone! Because the closer we get to Skyrim's release the harder it will be to find and the more expensive Oblivion might become in stores.
Sad but true..IMO
I was really looking forward to the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition figuring maybe a couple bugs would have been fixed and perhaps finally PS3 user's of this grand game would get all of the small but very much enjoyable DLC that the Xbox360 user's of the game enjoy such as. Mehrunes Razor,Horse Armor and Battlethorn Castle to name a few. but unfortunately we get none of that now I don't particularly mind not getting much of that extra stuff but I would have at least liked Trophies and fixes to the bugs that were in the previous installation of the PS3 version of Oblivion. I mean it is a very good game I mean excellent in every sense of the word infact I am very excited for Skyrim but in all honesty to those of you who like myself may own both a PS3 and an Xbox360 I honestly have to say if you want the best Oblivion experiance possible get the Xbox360 version.
