Summary: YES, Skyrim DOES play smoother and is alot easier to pick up and play, but there is NO real challenge in that game compared to Oblivion. The DLC for Oblivion was difficult and challenging but so deep and exciting. Skyrim is a GREAT game, in fact if you want something newer and has more DLC get Skyrim. But if you want a game with more challenge, get Oblivion. And Vampires aren't as bad as everyone makes them.
Summary: great gameplay, not to mention the graphic. Since i'm new in the Elder Scroll, its quite hard to adjust the playing style from M & M series to ES, especially the fighting part. But that can be settle in time..
Summary: Shiver me timbers! Has the world gone mad lately? Why, yes! Yes, it has. Welcome to the Shivering Isles, the latest expansion of last year's title, Oblivion. Inside lie the realms of Dementia and Mania, granting players a madeness-tinged title filled with funny quips and quirks. Like Oblivion's previous expansion, the Knights Of The Nine, Shivering Isles is all about meaningful choices.
Summary: There is just way too much Oblivion content that could have been released and they didn't even try it, worst of all its always been available on every other platform. They were also incredibly slow to release Skyrim DLC to PSN (it was finally released with little fanfare about a month before it was all put in a new retail edition) while it was available for PC and XBox 360 right away, again, and Bethesda had the nerve to blame PSN.
Summary: I have owned this game since it came out and in my opinion it is the best out of the elder scrolls series. the gameplay is great. the sneak is challenging but very possible. the apparel and weaponry are perfect.
