Summary: This Christmas my wife got oblivion for me. Always been a fan of Bethesda. I really enjoy progressing in a game the way I want. With oblivion you can really mix it up and try the broad range of characters and classes. There are always plenty of quests to go on and venture around.
Summary: Sometimes I feel there is 2 types of gamers: the ones that finish the game and experience all it has to experience before they can rightly say how they feel about it and then there's those who after awhile get the idea planted in their head of "I'm not going to be able to handle 25 more hours of...
Summary: First of all, I really enjoyed this game. It was a lot of fun to play, and it took me about a week to play through to the point where I felt comfortable completing the main quest. In that amount of time, you can do a lot of the side quests that the game provides.
Summary: Pro: Good production value, and almost limitless customization. Cons: Dungeons are repetitive, combat is clunky and unsatisfying, This game might be great for some but for me the extremely high level of customization and open ended story with the "living" world do not make up for the really poor...
Summary: The PS3 version of oblivion doesn't look bad, but max settings on a gaming PC at high resolutions 2560 x 1600 or even 1920 x 1200 will blow the graphics of the PS3 out of the water simply because the power of the PS3 is not properly harnessed and the resolution can't go above 1920 x 1080.
Pros: Great game, can be played in your living room, nice graphics. An epic game.
Cons: Graphics aren't as good as a good PC can output, no mod community (bank mod anyone?), patches not as easily applied, etc.
One of the most broken and monotonous RPG's of recent memory.

Conclusion: If you want to play a good RPG with a solid storyline, try Gothic. Oblivion is a giant of a game that fails due to gaping gameplay holes, the lack of an intricate and focused main quest, and the pure mind boggling repetitiveness of the thing.
Pros: First off all, the graphics and sound are very good, and combat feels nice and frantic. Oblivion features a large game world, and hundreds of hours of gameplay...
Cons: ...and that's where the good stuff ends. The 'hundreds of hours of gameplay' almost exclusively consists of roaming dark dungeons that consist of the same textures, and most of the dungeons consist of copied segments from other dungeons. After the first dozen or so dungeons this becomes oh so not...
Summary: I love this game but I didn't realise there are no trophies for this title. I just think it's lazy the developers didn't bother to patch it with trophies, given all they had to do was copy the ones on xbox.
Summary: This is a great RPG with a good storyline and massive world to explore. For me though, it lacked the richness of characters and creative details that something like Dragon Age had. Also, it was one of the first games to come out on the PS3 and things have evolved since then.
