Amazing! Huge! Fun! ....BUT...
15 February 2014
Summary: this game is alittle different than your standard midevil RPG. However, still fun and plenty to do! I highly recommend the game but with a couple of heads up(s): 1. health potions are expensive and rare so... even if you're a warrior you need to use alittle magic to heal or become a chemist and make your own potions. ALL of the midevil RPGs I've play in the past have provided readily available health potions for players but not here. I don't get it? 2.
Summary: Oblivion's depth is nothing short of staggering. Though Oblivion has a few issues it doesn't detract from gameplay. Oblivion has no multiplayer. You play solo and complete quests, level up and progress through a great story. As you grow more powerful you'll acquire better weapons, armor and spells to kill monsters and, if it's your preference, innocents.
Summary: The game is awesome overall, but on the game of the year edition on ps3, there is a glitch on every single one of them. Dont think yours wont have it, and it is this; when you try to cure yourself from being a vampire, you need to give a woman two things of bloodgrass. When you try to give it to her she wont accept it. There is no way around the bug, except to buy a new oblivion that isnt game of the year edition. Otherwise, i love this game SOO much.
Summary: They really should have left the system alone, as the only thing I really appreciated their doing to the structure of Oblivion was facilitating easy Fast Travel. If you can't top a great game everyone loved, just imitate it... This game has all of the ridiculous and prim dialogue of Morrowind with cleaner, more pastel visuals - their only foil being boring, incessant jaunts into "Oblivion" (i.e. Hell). Wait, see, this is what I'm talking about!
Summary: How much free time do you have? It's a legitimate question if you're considering Bethesda's epic The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, as it's likely to engulf whatever tidbits of unoccupied hours permeate your life. It might even start chipping away your daily responsibilities. With over 200 hours of gameplay, Oblivion's depth is nothing short of staggering. However, depth means nothing if it's paired with crippling bugs or frustrating gameplay.
Summary: Now a bit dated, Oblivion, with its many flaws (the leveling system most notably) is still a great value for anyone who likes first person RPG's and hasn't explored Tamriel before. There is a vast world and plenty of content to explore. I've played through the PC version after release and the PS3 version two years ago and this is the same game, assuredly.
Reviewing based on old releases not the gamppley itself

Summary: Originally for the xbox 360 oblivion came out and became one of the most popular games on the system. Later they released the game for the playstation 3 and release the game of the year edition. If you haven't bought this game this is the version u should buy. The major differences from the 360 version and the ps3 version are the DLC content. This version comes with all the DCL that has to offer.
Summary: I write this review to counter all the negativity that has been going on in the past half week because of what this package is lacking. It's true that the package is lacking a lot of the DLC available to Xbox users, but that's because of licensing agreements and patents that Bethseda has with Microsoft that won't expire for 20 years from the contract date. It sucks, but it's life. This package, while lacking some DLC, is a truly awesome package.
