Summary:

The Elder Scrolls Oblivion IV: Oblivion Is a First Person Fantasy Role Playing-Game Developed by Bethesda

This is possibly the Greatest game i've ever played, I've had it for 3 years and i still play it a lot.

The Story: You wake up in a Prison Dungeon after Creating your character only to be Greeted by the Emperor a few seconds later telling you that "He's Seen you in his dreams" and that he's being Hunted by Assassins and his secret passage starts in your Prison Cell. You follow him and his Bodyguard Knights The Blades through the Secret Passage Helping them fight off Assassins... But in th...

If you haven't played it, you're probably insane.

The good:

Huge world
So much to discover
Variety of quests [Factions]
The many ways to build your character
Hours and hours of fun.

The bad:

Main story
Little to no character development
Monster/item leveling system.

Summary:

Oblivion is the fourth instalment in the Bethesdas massively popular Elder Scrolls series. From the word go, I found myself constantly comparing it to Bethesdas more recent big project; Fallout 3, which is one of my favourite RPGs to date. Both of these games have the same basic idea to them, so I naturally had huge expectations. It would be so easy to write a review comparing these two games, as so many people tend to do, but since there are still many gamers out there who haven’t played Fallout 3, I won’t mention it again. I’ll just say that both games are outstanding in just about every...

The RPG of the century?

The good:

The good points I can locate within this game are that the graphics are brilliant and also the game play is great. When you begin the game, adventuring is the way to go and the combat skills make it better than the last installment, Morrowind. Exploration around Cyrodiil is easier and more detailed as you never truly know if a bear or wolf is going to be around the corner or if the high way man is going to stop you. Mercantile is also very good. The way you barter and interact with people is a big step and the use of better spells and scrolls make it easier to have low prices when you have a low level.

The bad:

The bad things inside this game are sometimes the weapons you can use. Some are extremely powerful, but some are weak. This is also a good point, but it can also mean a bad point. You have to fight for the best weapons but then glitches some times stop you from getting them. This causes you to die and also run out of supplies whilst wasting time. Also, I found that whilst fences in the thieves guild give you easy access to people who will buy stolen goods, you never can tell if the item you want will be there next time you play and barter with that character, this is the same with any shop owner or anybody that trades.

Summary:

This game is a great step forward for the makers. The battle is really good, the hit bonus is also a brilliant feature and is more realistic. Whilst daggers are good for thieves, big heavy maces are suited for Orcs, but you can still be encumbered quicker if you have to carry around the mace or axe. The class types within the game are also very good, they define the character even more than what you do inside the game. Exploration is also the way to head. When in need of money, all you have to do is go out and fight off monsters. Forts and settlements can be found in the wilderness, so more...

King of the RPGs?

The good:

Graphics
Controls
Quests
Huge World
Spell Creation

The bad:

Oblivion Gates
Voice Acting
Falls short of Morrowind over all
Repetitive combat

Summary:

Oblivion has long been touted as the best Xbox 360 rpg and it deserves that. Even in this somewhat empty market Oblivion has gone above and beyond to craft a unique and memorable experience. However it has also been called by some the best RPG ever. Does it deserve this title?

In a word no. Oblivion is not the best role playing game ever made. It is however one hell of a game and I reccomend it to anybody who owns a 360. Enough blabbering though lets get on to the review.

You start out in a prison cell, in jail for a crime we never learn the nature of. The emperor is being hunted by assassins...

6.0

Oblivion, a different view on gaming?

The good:

Breath-Taking Scenery
Tons of skills to build up
Many original pieces of armor, with many unique types
Mostly fun, and enjoyable quests
Side Quests to purchase, or buy as a bundle such as the Shivering Isles

The bad:

Load times

Summary:

Although I've only played Oblivion via PS3, it has got to be one of the most breath taking games of this century. It's a game that makes you want to stop riding your horse, and just camp out and watch the sunset, fake, but pretty.

Well... Maybe I should go in-depth on that. In The Elder Scrolls:Oblivion, you start as a prisoner. When the Emperor and his royal guard enter you cell and open a passage in the wall, you have only one choice to freedom... Follow them. From there you escape, and choose your destiny. A long, but rewarding story in destroying the evil of Cyrodill. Becoming a master...

Does it Deserve it's Title?

Summary:

Most people who look for an RPG look for the typical anime like characters, the flashy special attacks, the vicous large monsters, and the weapons and armour revolving around elements. Will this title fit in with the rest? Or stand on it's own?

PLOT:



You fall into the world of Oblivion as a convict sitting in jail not knowing anything about the world your in, or anything about yourself, but your name. Soon, the task of saving the world is thrown on your shoulders, and you embark on the journey of destroying evil.

Starts of simple, but at the moment you are free to roam the world, your options ...
