this games has some of the best graphics and is prob the best rpg game iv played. you can do what you want when you want usually. You can get a horse buy new swords and armor. you can murder people and sometimes get away with it. Every one has voice acting which means no reading. The only thing i don't like about is the guards almost always catch you unless your sneak skills are high or your a thief. i found it a little hard complete some of the earlier missions. The story is pretty good though. There is a bunch of guilds you can join. Like for instance you can join the thieves guild where you steal stuff. But this guild gives you a fence(someone to sell stolen goods to) There are also like 9 towns or more which you can travel too and do minor quests . There alot of minor characters and minor quests. You can also master in a number of skills like archery and sneak skill for ex. over all this game will be good for almost anyone.
Every so oftern a game comes along worth pouring days of your life into. This is one of those game. The details are amazing. Being as critical as i am though, I dare say this game is almost too big. Loading is annoying and the castles get repetative, as well as the peasants who have little to say and even less interesting things to do, I also found alot of small glitches very early on that still drive me crazy(though they take away little from what the game does very well. Yes, this game WILL ANNOY YOU but hey, what can you do? Worth the price, worth the rent. My advice, once you get your copy keep it!
Drop whatever you are doing and go buy/rent this game NOW!!! I’ve been playing vid games for over 25 years (yes, I’m that old) and Oblivion is one of the most AMAZING things I’ve ever seen accomplished with a computer. PERIOD. It is an ACTION RPG, you fight, you block, you aim, you see your arrow stick in that guys shoulder, just like an FPS, but the depth of what you can do is insane. I have two friends who just bought a 360 just to play this game after seeing it on my 360. This is a killer 360 app. If you want to see the future of gaming, it’s here and it’s Oblivion.
If you like RPG’s at all, just buy it. The game will last a long, long time and is worth every penny.
