Bug still in GOTY version for PS3
Luv Amazon, Amazon
26 December 2011
Summary: If you use PS3 and buy this GOTY edition then I would like to warn you that all your characters will eventually end up as vampires and the vampire cure quest fails due to a persistent bug that only has a viable work around which requires you to switch to the older original (non-GOTY/Anniversary) version of Oblivion. You can read about this bug at google USEPWiki - vampire cure bug. If I had known this I would not have bought this product.
Summary: Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is almost a good game. Almost, but not quite. Instead, the story is kind of dull and aimless and the graphics are clunky and, as a result, this game comes up a bit short in my opinion. Pros: -Tons of content. By the time you're done completing both the main storyline and the side missions, you'll be up around 100 hours of gameplay. -A large world with interesting geographical elements. Cons: -Poorly-designed menus.
Summary: I enjoyed Oblivion until a game breaking glitch stopped my progress. Researching the glitch, I realized it was a problem affecting a large percentage of PS3 gamers. In fact, I encountered innumerable glitches that weren't game breaking before I found the one that was, and I put the game aside for years. I've tried to play it again five years later, and they still haven't fixed the game. It's amazing.
Summary: Oblivion is a fantastic game. There, I said it. Now with that said, this release of the game really isn't worth it, especially for PS3 owners. It has been confirmed by Bethesda on their blog that this is just a repackaging of the GOTY edition they released earlier (lack of additional DLC available on XBOX, glitches and no trophy patch). This would only prove good for someone who has never played it before, and only if a used GOTY edition is no longer available.
Summary: ************MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS, PERTAINS TO BUGS UNFIXED IN GAME*************** I warn everyone who plans to buy the game! In the Game of the Year edition, VAMPIRISM CANNOT BE CURED!! I don't know if it's like that for everyone, but I checked online, and one of the ingredients you need to turn in is bugged, and it won't get turned in. So if you're a vampire, you'll forever stay a vampire.
Summary: The closest you'll be able to get -- at least of my writing -- to being able to play D&D by yourself, solo. An enormous amount of effort went into making this game: it's a richly detailed world that you could lose yourself in for at least a couple of months. Unfortunately, there are some serious bugs (or oversights) that get in the way of long-term enjoyment. These are not in any particular order. 1. There's a bug with the vampire disease.
Summary: Maybe this game is meant only for game geeks??? I've tried starting several times, but there seems to be no way to get enough coin to purchase anything, and no weapons to defeat anything but the weakest enemies. Just starting and getting past the first Gates seems almost impossible. Fire prevents taking the route to the top of the trail (somehow we finally did, but only thru luck, and never been able to do it again), and then there isn't enough healing potions to defeat...
Summary: This is a good RPG, but on my Game of the Year Edition there are many bugs and flaws. Many of the quests that make this game so fun are unavaiable or missing code to be able to preform or solve a sittuation. For example to be cured of the Vampires Disease, a player must acccomplish 5 different tasks. I have tried a thousand times and I get to the last item and the woman tells me I what i need even though I have in my invetory a thousand of the item required.
Summary: I'll start off by saying I'm normally a sports gamer, and I don't typically like RPGs (GTA is great, if you would put it in that genre.) But when I bought my PS3, I decided I'd give this game a shot since the reviews were fantastic and it won game of the year. All I can say is, I'm glad I bought it used. I played the game for a couple of days, trying to get myself interested, but I just couldn't.
Summary: THis game is truly fantastic, but once you get quite far on in the game, there are constant bugs - on certain side quests and even in the main one itself. It drove me crazy in the end, constantly saving because I never knew when the next bug would arrive and have now just stopped playing altogether. I wish there was this type of review around when I bought it. I have scoured the net and have seen that a lot of gamers are having this problem.
