Might be good but not for me,
15 October 2011
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 combat system. There is no satisfaction in downing enemies. Also, inventory management is clunky and sifting through containers is tedious.
Summary: the game came in time, however there were fingerprints on the cd itself. i have games that are years old and i have no fingerprints on them it looked a bit more used then like new other than that it was fine.
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 this".
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. One of the biggest complaints is the lack in variety of monsters. After a short time it's really the same monsters over and over. Other then that I really enjoyed the game.
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. I didn't have a huge problem with the bugs, really. At first, it was a little confusing when an NPC standing near me would die for no reason.
Summary: The seller sai this preowned item was in 'good' condition. However, the inside of the disk had a crack in it. It wasn't expensive or else i would have sent it back. The game only loads up half of the time but when it does it works normally somehow so i still managed to get some game time out of it hence the three stars.
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. It seems a bit behind the times compared to some of the newer games.
Summary: The game has great graphics and some of the scenery is quite awe-inspiring, but apart from that this game is massively overrated. It has other merits, but also some significant drawbacks: 1) The story is too diluted amongst the countless samey side-missions. When it does kick off, the countless Oblivion gates become a chore rather than a pleasure to defeat.
