Summary: this game is extremely in depth. u can do just about anything you can think of. but there are a few lame setbacks. personally in an rpg i like to find really awesome weapons and armor, train super rediculously hard and become super rediculously powerful so i can bet the super rediculous crap out of my foes. however in oblivion this isnt the case. the amount of money, quality of items you find, and strength of your enemies all revolve around your level.
Summary: My sister from the US sent me an EBAY card for Christmas. I knew it wouldn't work here in Canada but told my son if he could get it to work from here he could use the amount to buy a game (this game). I did not realize it was a 'buy it now' item. I think he held back on me on that. Needless, to say, I have had to purchase the item. My son seems OK with the purchase. His only comment was the case was broken on the top. As long as the disks work, I am happy.
Summary: I approached Oblivion with cautious optimism. The last game I had played in the series and truly enjoyed was Daggerfall, which was in my opinion one of the greatest RPGs for its time. Oblivion didn't entirely disappoint me, but it was nowhere near as interesting as many had made it out to be, and it just didn't live up to Daggerfall either. Oblivion is labeled as an RPG but it's mostly an action game with extensive wandering around.
Summary: Oblivion is a huge game that will keep you busy for years. There are a hundred quests, homes to decorate, spells to create, clubs to join and friends to make. But somehow they all look the same after a while. The cities are amazing in that you can talk to every person and open every door- but that means there are only a few dozen homes in every city. The world doesn't have the feel of a big place, just a series of small ones that are all the same.
Summary: To start out with the graphics are great. In the begining of the game you will spend about an hour making your character because of all the little details of the character you can edit. You have so many races and skills to choose from. When you start out you have no guidence at all. It's like being 21 again. Ouy in the world able to do whatever. There are hndreds of quests to do that are not part of the main Quest.
