The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game Of The Year Edition
This Game is a must buy for people who love RPG's
This game is a must buy for 6 maybye 7 reasons. #1 the game is only 20 bucks! so even if you dont like it you only wasted 20 bucks. #2 the game is astounding for the lasting appeal and many more. This game gives you more than 100 hours of fun even if you dont play the main story! You can play all the different side quests and still have over 100 hours of gameplay. The side stories are very interesting and informative. Some of the side stories even tie into the games main plot and story line!. I would give this game a 9-10 because of one main flaw i saw in the graphics and game engine this game is run on. If you dont have a good ps3 then when you are fighting 20 to 30 guards the game sometime freezes because it is too much for the system to handle. but there is a solution to this, if you pause your game for about 10 mins and come back it should of unfroze. I also noticed that the game engine its runned on can be a little annoying and lag alot. Other than those reasons this game is a must buy for anyone thinking of something to do in there spare time. I would recommend this game to people from the ages of 11-26ish it is also good for gamers of any age but it might be a little harder to figure out for younger people. This game is a must buy.
This game is Very good. If you have not played elder scrolls before start here. This is the simplest one. I like it better than skyrim. The only reason I gave it a 9 and not 10 is the vampire quest glitch. Shivering isles is amazing. Huge dlc. Knights of the nine is in the same map as normal game but you get weapons and armor at the end.
One of the best RPGs I have played
Words cant really express the greatness of this game, but I will try my best. Lets start with graphics. Yes the game is 3 years old but I still have not seen a better sky (especially at night). the tree leaves/grass/underwater could be better along with the characters(not including the armor), but the level of detail I would say is top notch for when this game came out and still beats games comming out today. the gameplay I would say is perfect. The controls are smooth and easy to use, im not saying playing the game is exactly easy as you still have to time the advanced manuvers you get later in the game as you level just right. There is atleast 150+ hours of gameplay which should be a minimum for new RPGs that come out (that way i dont feel like ive wasted my $60). Some of the sounds from creatures you battle are not that great but the rest of the sounds are great. If you are a fan of RPGs this is not money wasted ( get the GOTY version). I think the game speaks for its self.
One of the best of it's time.
My brother got this game for the 360 and at first just by looking at the cover i thought the game was going to be dark and weird. Then i played it and my mind was blown. I plugged in over 90 hours into that game and didn't even complete all the side quests and i only found about half the locations in the game. I have it for the ps3 now and i already have 34 hours of gameplay and i've already found several quests i didn't in my first play through. this game is still loved by fans everywhere after 5 year. The gameplay is amazing the leveling system is great. At increments of 25 you get a new ability. like if your marksmanship gets to 50 you are then able to zoom in with the bow. Storyline is very good. I can go on all day. But gameinformer said it is the 3rd best game of this console generation losing to only bioshock and GTA IV which i think this game is better than both. Anyways if you havent already get this game especially if you aren't sure about getting skyrim this will convince because skyrim is going to be far better than this game.
Perfect for Anyone
Whether your new to RPGs (role playin games), looking into one, or have been playing them for years, this game is perfect. Great graphics, completely free-roam, music that makes your heart race, costumization, varieties of races, everthing. If you wanna break from shooters, but still like the FPS idea, this game is for you. Like DaO, but want a longer version, this game is for you. Only have 30 bucks and want something that will give you "more bang for your buck" litterally, Oblivion can be played for over 100 hours. Now, I have stopped playing Oblivion, but not without turning on my no life switch. I probably have about 60+ hours spent, whether exploring dungeons, practicing magic, wielding the sword, or decimating trolls with deadly arrows. This game is by far the best game I have ever played, and I would recommend it to anybody. Its like a super version of Zelda, but, you know, where you can go anywhere at anytime. Another thing I forgot to mention was the Shivering Isles expantion pack that is included with the GotY edition. You will be able to travel to a different world, defeat Knights of Order, and do battle with the giant, head knight, Jyggylag. haha, funny name. And you become a king of that world. This game is a must buy.
Massively Epic and Engaging!!
Oblivion happens to be my first Elder Scrolls Game I have ever played. Simply Awesome and Gorgeous!!
A very good game In my opinion.
As Far as 2006 and below wise this is an excellent video game. This is just your everyday medieval game. You kill some kill some goblins here and kill some skeletons there. The animation is pretty sweet because for 2006 I had seen games made in 2007 and didn't look this good. The sounds are good. It actually makes u feel like your in the game itself. And for the game itself it didn't really get me dragged in. Example: You really can't do much at the beginning of the game except for going to the arena in Imperial City the City or unless you wanna risk it and go to Kvatch and close that gate. But other then that it has nice gameplay that will draw you in the game for hours,and I honestly think this is a good game for a some what experienced gamer. Hope this helps!
I had never tried any of the Elder Scroll games but this one looked good and it had came out for the ps3, so i just had to try it! Right when I plugged it in I was blown away by how you could make your characters, you can customize them absolutely any way possible. The graphics are amazing, from dark dripping caves to amazing green grass plains this game really shows what the playstation can do. When your first dropped in the game an amazing story line comes over you and its impossible to stop playing the game. You can even change the difficulty from easy to hard and every where in bettwen. I have put so so much time into my copy and I still play it alot. There is hours of land to just walk around and enjoy, at some points i just found my self sitting there listening to birds or looking at the rolling hills! Besides all of this there are hundreds of weapons, armours and quests to get and complete. I recommend this game for any one who likes RPG games, it is a classic for me and I hope it will be for you too!
Oblivion the best 1st person rpg i've seen
Now we all know and love fallout 3, but this game is probably it's superior the graphics are amazing as well as the sound the only thing is the game's challenge is medicore at best but the large world layouts and free roam count the ability to do anything is just awesome. Juust to keep you occupied you have side missions, random fights and levels. Plus nothing beats beatin' on some annoying people or guards it's not wrong some times they really deserver it. However the story isn't so great it's not terrible either about 8 out of 10. Honestly if you like this game you must have a pretty good atention span because doing everything in the game for story mode does get kind of annoying. The controls easily earn a 10 out of 10 they aren't complex and they suit the game well which you dont always see from games alot now. Well i'd really reccomend this game not the best but every game has flaws
I would recommend this to anyone
i played this game for 90 hours and still not done with all the quests. it has an amazing storyline and length and the character cust. is awsome you can choose between diffrent races such as humans lizards and cats haha sorry can remeber the name of the lizard and cat race. but each race has its advanteges like the lizards can brethe underwater and cats have a spell which makes the see in the dark. also, you have skills like runescape almost were you can train attack, strenght, agility speed range heavy and light armor and it will go to 100 max. then there is multiple factions you can join the dark brother hood (awesome group) fighters guild (a little easy) the areana(like old time gladiator) and mages (which havent completed yet) lastly the dark brother hood you are an assassin like a hitman untill a unlikely tratior comes along and it is amazing one of my favorite parts of the game
