Oblivion: Elder Scrolls IV. Review(xbox 360) Main Review: Its hard to know where to start in the vast, vagrant as well as beautiful and seemingly endless world, which by no means is a bad thing seems you'll lose yourself in the game and you wont want it to end. It is clear form the word go that this game is an elder scrolls game from the music to the visual and spoken references to previous installments, almost everything is typical to elder scroll. You will begin watching a powerful and c...

Review: The Elder Scrolls IV Oblvion 0

The Elder Scrolls IV Oblvion is an amazing RPG. It takes place cyrodiil, the capital province in the fictional land of Tamriel(The entire planet the series takes place on is Nirm if you want to go more to detail) It is on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.The land of Cyrodiil is huge... a little too huge. It's great that they made such a large area too explore, but most of it are just forests. Although the forests are different in every general area which is nice.Oblivion's gameplay is great. The combat feel...

By the Nine Devines...I'm never gonna finish this game... 0

Best Feature: There is so much to do! So many ways to do battle, stealth, magic arrows. Create the character you want, be the bad guy, good guy or something in between... Worst Feature: THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO! You'll never do it all without using a huge chunk of your life! Game is buggy in a some places. Move over Grand Theft Auto! You thought you showed us the meaning of free form gameplay!? You know nothing! Oblivion has shown me that, even GTA gives you a bit of a direction to got in from t...

Bethesda does it again. Incredible 0

 After a great success with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Bethesda Softworks does it again with the fourth title in the series so far, Oblivion To play  Oblivion, you gotta make sure you have at least an hour before you have to do something. The game is likely to make you forget all time, and you can sit for hours whitout even noticing. I've had the game for a few days, but I've played 55 hours. With such a huge world, you'll never go tired of just traveling around, killing wolves and other ...

Binbay55's "Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion" Review 0

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the latest game in the series to be developed by Bethesda. And it really is the best in the series in possibly every way. It takes place in the province of Cyrodil in the country of Tamreil. The game starts off with your character sitting in a prison for some unknown reason... Scratch that, the game REALLY starts off with you, spending fifteen minutes creating your character in the character creation screen. And it is one hell of a character creation; you can c...

Hot Damn 0

Oblivion is a must play game for any 360 owner. I have played the game for well over two years and I still find it fun, and new. Oblivion's world is massive and the plot is in-depth and non-linear. The gameplay varies greatly depending on the players preference, and the vast amount of quests make gamers initially intimidated, but ultimatly exillerated. With all the expansion packs and little bells and whistles there is no way that a player could ever say that they have "done it all" or that they...

Don't talk such rot 0

When it comes to a game like oblivion theres no real one place to start.I suppose its best to describe the game and its objective.Oblivion takes place in the land of Cyrodil .   You begin your adventure and right off the bat your asked to pick a class. You can either pick one of the preset classes or make your own. So if you ever wanted to be a level 50 mohawk now is your chance.   Then your asked to pick your Diety. Nothing to fancy there each god gives special skills and abilities blah blah. N...

Jaw Dropping! 0

Wow, what a fantastic game. Bethesda knows what they're doing and Oblivion is a prime example of their mastery. This was the first title for the X360 as well as the first next gen title I purchased  and as soon as heard Patrick Stewart's captivating voice I was hooked. This is one of the very few games that has actually moved me emotionally and has really took a hold of my life. It may sound weird but it's really that damn good.Oblivion is the fourth installment in the Elder Scrolls series and i...

A Fantastic Game 0

This game has got to be one of my top favorites right now. The graphics were completely fantastic, the gameplay was immersive, great voice acting, and the choice to follow the main quest or the numerous side quests was perfect. At first the massive area you can travel in looks intimidating, but once you start playing you'll swear it will have only been an hour. The scenery was wonderful. I've spent time just looking around at the scenery. Trust me, it doesn't disappoint.When making your characte...

This game is amazing, truely amazing 0

Oblivion is the fourth installment in the Elder Scrolls series, it is developed by Bethesda and is easily one of the best games on the 360, but why is that? It is one of the best games because of four things. One, the 3 pronged combat system. Two, the exetremly impressive graphical quality. Three, the amazing writting and storylines. Four, the large amount of value in this vast game.Combat makes or breaks an action game, if you don't have good combat, then you dont have a good 1/4 - 3/4 of a gam...

Beastly 0

This game is AMAZING !!! It has some performance issues like lag while you are roming the countryside ( none of this on ps3 or powerfull pc) It will take a LONG time to complete and has many amazing sidequests. Another complaint I have is the unrealistic AI when it comes to murder and stuff like that. For example, you sneak into a house without and guards seeing you and sneak upstairs without alerting anybody. Then, you creep over the person in bed and 1 hit kill them before they know what hit t...

An immersive RPG experience. 0

In 2002 Bethesda softworks released The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It was a huge imersive RPG experience that unfortunately had some problems that prevented it from worldwide recognition. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblvion fixes all of these problems and could well be named one of the best RPG's of all time. So not to spoil the main story of the game, this will be brief. The game takes place in a land called Tamriel and in the province of Cyridiil. Accross Cyrodiil Oblivion gates have been poppin...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 0

I named Oblivion my favorite game of 2006 over a year ago, but I never got around to writing a full review, as that's something I didn't start doing until after I had been into it for a while and I wasn't sure at what point I should do so. Now's as good a time as any, as I've probably come as close as I ever will to seeing all there is to see, and I'm about to start playing the prequel, which I'm going to make a new blog for.Oblivion really isn't like other games for me. I usually play focused s...

This is one game I'll never get tired of. 0

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has finally made its Playstation 3 debut. Although, this game a sight to behold, it's still pretty far from perfect. There are many improvements since Morrowind, there are still some things that the developers shouldn't have removed from the series. Nevertheless, Oblivion will literally take a chunk out of your life from the countless hours you'll spend assassinating citizens of Cyrodill for the Dark Brotherhood, or finding the holy Relics of the Crusader and resur...

A step in the right direction, but still a step 0

Quick ReviewIf you think Oblivion is the next generation of gaming, a game with total freedoom, and a game you can play however you want, you'll be dissapointed.  But don't get me wrong: I wholeheartedly urge all decent RPG fans to buy this game right now.  It is a deep, nearly endless RPG.  But Oblivion ends up being only a minor piece of what a truly open world rpg is.  If you want to be the best mage in the world, you can do it in Oblivion.  You can be a good person as well, doing quests for ...

I Sold My Soul To This Game 0

RPG perfection? No, but so close it's hard to judge. A game I sank over 300 hours of my life into, and then some when I began modding it. When it was first released Oblivion was beautiful even with its low frame rate and sometimes absent textures, the world of Cyrodill was an impressive place. The combat wasn't perfect, but it was good and the story was one of the better ones in a game like this. It was the seemingly endless world to explore that drew me in. There are so many  places to find, an...

Instant classic 0

This is my first review for a game, and i think its a worth first start. 4 years i have been waiting for this game, 4 years. And boy was it worth it. Never in my life have i ever played a single player roleplaying game as detailed, as deep and as fun as this. So when you first start the game, you are in a prison cell, and this is where you hear the first of the great voice acting, Patrick Stuewet. He plays the emperor Uriel Septim. He comes up to you and talks about how he predicts his death, an...

Addicting Gameplay in It's Purest Form 0

OverviewElder Scrolls IV: Oblivion,  made by Bethesda Softworks is an action RPG set mainly in the world in Tamriel.   You play as a prisoner who gets caught up in the middle of an assassination attempt on the king.  What the character looks like, it's strengths, weaknesses, and other traits are all made by the player.  The game is not on a true set course so the player can decide what they wish to do and when to do it.  People who have enjoyed previous Elder Scrolls games should enjoy this one ...

Amazing game at it's core, technical problems aside. 0

Gameplay: 8.5I loved this game when I first started playing it. I was a relative newcomer to RPG's and I still am, but the combat system was fun, simple, and akin to any action game. I was pleased to see that there were no turns, nor number popping up in the air. Left-click to attack. Right-click to block. Simple. There are many MANY quests to complete but I was disappointed that the faction quests were not more fleshed out. Instead I was sent on random errands to occupy myself, when I just want...

Instant classic. 0

It's not very often that a game comes along which is so totally and utterly engaging that you end up planning out your next steps in the game whilst you're away from the comfort of your living room. This morning whilst on the way to work I was planning out which route I'd take to finish my quest, which guild I'd visit next for a contract and which weapons I'd equip to make best use of my abilities. Oblivion is one of those rare games which gives you an open ended experience but manages not to ...

Anyone who has a 360 should already own this game. 0

This game is absolutely amazing, the visuals, the game play, and the amount of game time your can get out of this. First off this game is massive, the map is huge and theres plenty to see and roam around if you really want to see everything this game has to offer. There are many guilds and quests you do along the way or you can just do the main quest if you dont feel like doing the guilds. You can fully customize your character to your liking. This game is just amazing and I would suggest it to ...

Endless Possibilities Lead to an Incredible Experience 0

Having spent a bit of time getting acclimated to the world of Oblivion, I have to say that I'm honestly blown away. I've been a big fan of RPG's all my life, but I never really realized how scripted they all are until I got into this game. I realized how constrained I was in the other games I've played. However, this isn't a fault of the other wonderful RPGs I've experience, it's simply an enhancement of my experience with Oblivion. The fact that you can choose to follow the main quest or not is...

A Crowning Achievement 0

Here is a game in which breathtaking visuals and perhaps the largest free roaming environment in gaming history supplement, but do not by any means overshadow, an equally vast amount of gameplay content.In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, you take on the role of a citizen of Tamriel. What your character looks like, the skills he or she is proficient in, and how he or she acts, is entirely up to the player.The game has an interesting enough main quest, introduced to you when you first begin playin...

Action-RPG + MMORPG + Ingenuity = ES IV: Oblivion 0

You are the unfortunate prisoner, sitting in your particular cell, wondering just how you got yourself into this troublesome predicament. Across the hall can be heard the snickers of a fellow inmate, hurling insults your way as the guard and his escorts approach. While waiting you calm your fidgeting by playfully moving some chains back and forth, all the while watching that ever approaching shadow. Yet, with each passing second you feel a sense that something is amiss, a wariness that easily to...

One of the best games ever. 0

Being a father with limited time for playing games, I was unsure if I could put the time into playing a very large RPG. I never really played morrowind, only a quick go at a friends house. After following this game since the xbox 360 came out, I was really interested to see how it is. Well I took the plunge and got the game for the xbox 360. And even with a limited time for playing, I found I could get into the game, it is easy to pick up and play. Straight to the action from the beginning, load...
