basically this tries to revamp oblivion without giving the game enough time in development to play as smoothly and have as high of production values as were found in oblivion. I do consider it a good attempt. The battle system takes some getting used to, especially when faving multiple enemies. What really makes this game a buy is the real focus and detail that went into the inventory and magic system, quite possibly the best possible configuration for a game that only lets you fight in third person. From what I can see there is a vast array of magic spells that can be learned and eventually mastered. navigating the map and equipment screens seemed harder to adapt to then oblivion but once you get a feel for it, it becomes a fun challenge in itself. Keep in mind that this is the kind of game your going to need your head to survive in.
