Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
One of the most respected Western role-playing games of all time is back with huge improvements in graphics and accessibility, including a completely real-time combat system and the largest, most detailed game world ever seen. Phew.

The lowdown:
Although previous Elder Scrolls games have enjoyed something of a like it or loathe it reputation, this latest sequel has the means to appeal to everyone thanks to one simple improvement: its incredible new graphics. Unlike many role-playing games it is viewed from a first person perspective, with a game world portrayed in a staggering amount of detail, and realistic psychics and characters that genuinely seem to be going on about their own separate lives. The game’s real appeal though lies in the huge freedom: play it exactly how you want.

Most exciting moment:
Using the new combat engine to fight off dozens of enemies, then stealing one of their mounts and riding off into the sunset.

Since you ask:
Emperor Uriel Septim VII is voiced by Star Trek and X-Men luminary Patrick Stewart, but all the characters in the game have full spoken voiceovers instead of just onscreen text. This is the next generation, you know.

The bottom line:
One of the most realistic and accessible role-playing games ever made.
Harrison Dent

5.0 out of 5 stars A review for the older gamer! 25 Oct 2008
By Bookish
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am what might be described as a more 'mature' gamer. I'm also female. Now, I don't want to be accused of being ageist or sexist BUT I wanted to write a review specifically for the older person who might pass over this game because they think that it's all about fighting, war, death, destruction etc.

Well, not the way I play it, it isn't...

This is a brilliant, immersive game that has kept me happily engrossed for eighteen months - and I haven't finished it yet! (Well I never said I was a 'hardened' gamer...!!)
The graphics are absolutely brilliant if you have a PC with a good graphics card: if you have a slower PC, then you'll need to tweak with the in-game settings to ensure it doesn't stutter. Even then, playing with the graphics at its lowest level, the graphics are good.

I recommend you turn off everything that runs in the background of your computer before you start the game (you can do this by pressing CTRL/ALT/DELETE and bringing up Task Manager). Also unplug your printer and turn off your screen saver (this is one greedy game!!)

During the first few minutes of the game (or the first few hours, depending on your ability. Or the first few days, in my case...), you go through a kind of tutorial. This takes you out of prison and through a dungeon full of rats and nasties to be killed - finding out along the way how to use various weapons and spells. But - don't let this put you off. Because once you get out of the dungeon you enter the Province of Cyrodiil - a kind of medieval land where magic is common and the gun hasn't been invented, so you must use swords or fists if you want to fight - and thereafter you can wander around and do just as you please.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many hours game play, for so little money. 12 July 2007
By MiG73
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly, I must say what a fantastic game Oblivion is, set in a huge and graphically beautiful world; there's so much to see and do, this game has kept me totally engrossed for months. For someone who's new to this type of game, starting off was quite daunting, there's a huge amount of things to consider when setting up your character before you actually start playing the game. Once you do get started though, you will see the time spent deliberating over the plethora of options was well worth it.

I'm not normally a fan of RPG games, but what attracted me to Oblivion was the thing that makes it different from a standard RPG game, the ability to play in First Person view and engage in real time combat. Take on your foes with bow and arrow, charge in with shield and sword, or throw around some magic spells, there's great variety to the combat and more than one way to tackle every situation.

The game world is huge, so walking from place to place as you go about your business can be very time consuming. When you first start the game, walking everywhere is great and in fact the best thing to do, as you will discover new places and meet new people along the way and building up your characters various skills as you go. However, many hours in to the game, the prospect of having to journey to a town at the far side of the map, walking along the same old routes, getting attacked by the same bandits and wild animals can be a bit wearing. This is where one of the games best features kicks in, there's an option to 'Fast Travel' to any location you've previously visited, just pop up the world map, click on the location, watch the load screen for 2 seconds and you're there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect 16 Feb 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was very excited when this game was announced. As a big fan of its predecessor, Morrowind, I greatly anticipated Oblivions release and I feel that I was not disappointed. The graphics are incredible, even on my three-year-old computer, (note to others - If you experience jerky graphics just turn of the grass, makes a big difference). The design is amazing, the towns and cities are beautifully textured and each has its own personality, just like places in the real world and forests are highly realistic, the characters are also highly lifelike, especially the lip-sync with the dialogue, and again the textures are excellent, hair shines, faces have wrinkles, facial expressions mirror a characters emotions etc.

The gameplay is very good, the combat system is better than Morrowind, with the ability to block and perform complex attacks which takes practice but that just adds to the realism. Other skills like lockpicking are also much more involving for the player and the `sneak' function is far more useful than in the previous game.

Missions and quest are varied, from the usual hack and slash to stealth to detective work, and the quest system is more versatile than in morrowind.

However:

I said it's nearly perfect, I do have some reservations.
