Oblivion is the quintessential role-playing game for the next generation and another leap forward in gaming. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. Oblivion is the latest chapter in the epic and highly successful Elder Scrolls saga and utilizes next-generation video game hardware to fully immerse you into the experience.
With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the main quest at your own pace or explore the vast world and find your own challenges.
Ahh good old Elder Scrolls, The same concept as the previous games... but prettier and more land to explore. Essentially a first/third person roleplaying game where you can do whatever you wish.
Has some great features such as:
- Horses (new to the series)
- Much bigger land to explore
- Masses of dungeons and locations to plunder
- Huge (as in Colossal) modding comunity... essentially the point of the series nowadays
- Great graphics and full facial customisation
It does however have some drawbacks:
- Pretty flat main storyline
- No real goal to strive for (although with the modding comunity as it is, this is easily fixed)
- Very uninteresting charecters and somewhat unimersive world (again this has been more than compensated for by the comunity)
It's a great series of games, I got months of entertainment out of this game and its previous installment Morrowind. It's pretty much a game engine that's handed to the modding world to play with, you'll definitly enjoy it if you're a fan of customising games, and for those not so into that it's just a great RPG to play with constantly updating free bonus content.
