The Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion
2 days ago
Excerpt: "Sykähdyttävän kaunis ja rikassisältöinen keskiaikaan ritarikaudelle sijoittuva seikkailu/roolipeli, jossa kaikki palaset loksahtavat kohdalleen. Mikäli fantasia, seikkailu tai roolipelaaminen kiehtoo, tämä on ehdoton pakko-ostos.
Pros: + Hyvä juoni, + Hyvä pelattavuus, + Paljon tekemistä, + Vapaa pelimaailma, + Valtava määrä pikkutehtäviä, + Henkeäsalpaavat maisemat, + Kaunista musiikkia
Conclusion: The hype was over the top, the gameplay is shoddily reliant on the uninspired system of travel; not to mention fairly repetitive, the music is decent but its timing is abrupt, and the graphics are a mess. The narrative, as if I even have to clarify, is asinine. It was a (barely) necessary experience for the faithful series spectators, but it turned out to be a pretty painful one when looking back on the results.
Excerpt: When Oblivion was released, we at Pro-G were faced with a tough decision. Suck it up and suffer from insomnia for a few days, complete as much of the game as humanely possible, and publish this review alongside all of the others, or, suck it up and suffer from insomnia for a few weeks , explore every nook and cranny Oblivion has to offer, finish all of the guild quests, the main quest, fetch all of those damn Nirnroot plants, and provide our readers with the most...
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Knights of the Nine Review
18 April 2007
Excerpt: When The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was finally released earlier this year, it was to critical acclaim and numerous awards including Golden Joysticks. This one game was responsible for millions of Xbox 360 and PC users shunning the outside world as they spent hundreds of hours exploring the beautiful world of Cyrodiil, completing quests, joining guilds, exploring dungeons and trying to work up enough nerve to kill a unicorn.
Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a fantasy-themed role-playing game developed by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fourth game in the Elder Scrolls series. The story takes place shortly after the events of Morrowind but in another province. After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, Uriel Septim VII, the throne of Tamriel lies empty.
Excerpt: “Bigger and mostly better” is one way to describe Oblivion , the fourth installment in the Elder Scrolls series. An ambitious and engagingly epic fantasy RPG, Oblivion improves on many of the problems its predecessors faced. The series’ hallmarks have always been big, sprawling worlds chock full of things to do and rich in detail, with the main plot almost as a side point to the adventures you have along the way.
Excerpt: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Oblivion for short) has already made its debut on both the PC and Xbox 360. However the PS3 version was delayed past the console’s launch date to allow for a decent port to Sony’s console. Bethesda was kind enough to send us a copy for review and after spending some extended playtime with this version I would have to say that the game is just as large and just as good looking as the two other versions that grace the other platforms.
Conclusion: Gripes aside, Oblivion is an excellent CRPG, one of the best I’ve seen in a very long time. Already the market is taking note and taking the ‘ Oblivion Approach ’ in designing their CRPG’s. If they’re as good as Oblivion all the better. Bottom Line, if you like RPG’s, you must get this one!
Excerpt: ype can be a negative in the video game industry, many games have become major sellers even if they are terrible, all thanks to their marketing campaigns. Enter the Matrix is a very good example and the same can be said about Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness which was complete garbage but still, thanks to the hype, was a respectable seller.
Summary: Oblivion is, simply put, the best Action RPG on the market, in the history of the world, ever! A massive, beautiful world filled with interesting character and a great plot coupled with easy to master controls for all aspects of the game make this a must-play for all PC gamers, RPG fans or not.
