Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Best mid-evil game I've ever played..!
This game is just all around a great game. I've played every Elder Scroll, however this one is just outstanding!
I've always had a thing for rpgs, but Oblivion is definiteley my favorite. Great story, nice leveling system and graphics that may not be top of the line now,but were a masterpiece back in 06. If the game is too easy or, there is a bar to adjust the difficulty. The game also has a great leveling system which makes leveling up fun, and not boring. The first Twenty minutes are kinda boring, but once you come out of the sewers the game is nonstop fun. There are many ways to play this game; you can play Like Grand theft auto by killing people, stealin horses and breaking into peoples house( although some important characters cannot be killed) , Or you could play it like the rpg it was ment to and complete the quest lines. There are 6 quest lines, the theives guld, the dark brother hood(your an assassin), the mages guild, the fighters guild, the arena, and the main quest line, all of which are fun. There really isn't a flaw with this game and I recommend it to any rpg fan.
One of a Kind
Oblivion is one of those games that doesn't come around too often.
Graphics: The city and environments look stunning. The characters also look great considering the game was made several years ago.
Gameplay: The sword play and archery works very well. There are no combos or anything while using hand-to-hand combat, but that doesn't take away from the game. The spells you have also work very well and are fun to use. You can also choose the character type you want to play with, which opens up different ways for to approach the gameplay.
Guilds: As you wander around the massive world you may find people that will want you to join their brotherhood. There are many different guilds you can belong to, each with their own rewards. These are nice to find because they do so much and have very fun challenges.
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is one unbelievable game. The interaction and the open-world is massive and very fun to explore. The gameplay is good and so is the sound. Overall I give this game a perfect 10/10.
Best roleplay midevial game ever.
I have had this game ever since I got my xbox, which was about 2 years ago. I am level 51 (max level 50), and that shows just how good this is. You can master plenty of different skills, and have fun doing it. This isn't one of those grinding games, where you spend hours just to gain three levels. You can choose from plenty of races, then customize the facial features, from a Nordic Swordsman, to a Wood Elf Archer, and from a Argonian lizard ninja, to a Kajit cat wizard. All the time, you can join many guilds, change many amours, find new weapons, and then have enchantments to make everything better. If you like having a game, that requires hundreds of guides just to achieve every achevement, gather every item, finish every quest, meet every npc, and find every spot. Not to mention that the npc's are a player of their own. They hide from the rain. They hunt for food. They talk with each other. And the enviroments are amazing. Just like this game. I definantly reccomend this to anyone.
The Best Game EVER!!!!!
Of all of the games ive ever played in my life time this one is the best. The charecter creation in the begining that lets you customise who you are in every aspect all the way down to your strengths and weaknesses. The length is so long that instead of lasting a day like most it can last for weeks on end! The graphics are the top of the line on the Xbox 360 and some of its seens are breathtaking and make you feel as though you are really there. The challenge is also really good and the player has the option of making it harder for themselves in the options menu. I also loved how you could customise the controls to your own speed in this awesome game. Interface in this game is pretty good also but I have to say loading screens could take a while which is probably one of the few things I didnt like. Overall I think this is the best game for players of any skill level and defenitaly recommend this game as a 10. I hope that Bethesda plans on making more from the Elder Scrolls in the future!
One word. Astonishing.
When I first played this I expected it to be like any other rpg..but I was amazed as soon as I experienced the open world content, and the Oblivion storyline is amazing. 100/100 10 stars out of 10. Much better than Skyrim.
It's like living in middle-earth
The Elder Scrolls are the big daddy's of all RPG'S. Oblivion is one the best games in the elder scrolls series. It features a straight forward storyline and easy to follow, and the combat system is great (compared to it's predecessor, morrowind. It also has stunning graphic with breathtaking locations. The music fits in well with the game too.
The khajiit is a good race to choose because they are resistant to disease (with the exeption of porphyric hemophilia,aka the vampires disease) and have a night vision spell.The lord is a good birth sign to choose, since that is the only sign that can regenerate health. I recommend making a custom class to suit your needs. Keep a good reputation (no stealing, murdering, or pickpocketing civilians)
Keep your armor/weapons in good condition, you never know when one might break. Purchase a manual of arms and another about armor.
Don't level up ( you can do this by sleeping in beds) to frequently because the monsters level up with you. Exploring is a good idea, for you might encounter some useful loot. Alchemy is infinite money. Alright, I think your now ready to jump into that oblivion gate. Good luck!
GRAPHICS: The graphics are highly amazing compared to other RPG's. The warm colors of nature combined with the cold colors of man and the unknown create a balance to prevent aching in your eyes. The colors really "pop" if played on a certified 1080p Plasma HDTV. In the end the graphics are highly amazing and look better then the top game engines seen now days. SOUNDS: The sounds personally were okay. Sometimes the voicing between the words and the lips moving become unsynchronized and makes dialogue really disturbing. No real difference in sound for different types of weapons which makes it really bland in the end. STORY/LENGTH: Short. I mean that in a litteral sense. When I bought this game and began to play it, I got heavily lost in the pure amounts of activity you could do. Hunting/Merchant, Assassin, Thief, are a bunch of examples. The main story though is really short that you forget to notice. END STATEMENT: In the end, the game is a real fine piece of work from bethseda.
I have never played a game of this capacity. This game is a free roaming game, and you are able to get arrested if you commit a crime. (If you kill someone vital to a future quest you can not complete it, characters do not respawn.) The game has beautiful graphics for the time and an amazing storyline. It also has one of the best character customization options I have ever seen. I can not wait for Skyrim. P.S.: If you plan on killing everyone or thing you see you might want to lower the difficulty and save a lot, I learned that the hard way.
One of the best games made
Wow!!!!!!!!! That’s all I could say when I played this game. The storyline and sound are awesome and the graphics are outstanding. And the shivering isles are another great aspect to the game. The way I got started on this game was because my friend bought his Xbox 360 along with oblivion and he was hooked then he told me to try it and I did and I loved it. The character customization is really good and the game has a wide variety of weapons and armor as well as other important things found while in gameplay. I really didn’t have any doubts when I first bought this game because Bethesda makes awesome RPG's. I would definitely recommend this game to any friend that likes role playing games. The only thing I thought the game was missing was to be on live, I mean a game like that would be awesome on live fighting other people, doing missions together, etc. Anyways anyone who likes role-playing games buy this one you won’t be disappointed.
