4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but enjoyable 25 Oct 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game took me ages to get into and I found it way too difficult to begin with. However, once I turned the difficulty level down I found it much more enjoyable. It's a good game, there is lots to do and loads of quests but after a while they tend to get a bit too similar.
Almost every quest you receive leads you to a cave where you have to go and find someone who disappears and it ALWAYS turns out that they're dead or that they're betrayers. It does get a little repetative.
I enjoyed the character depth and development and talking to different people and exploring but the combat is quite poor and I think they could have varied the individual tasks more.
Overall, it's a good game, but not as good as I expected it to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oblivion 31 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Personally I really enjoyed playing Oblivion. It's the first game I ever really got into.

The storyline is good, if not wonderful, and there are plenty of things to keep you entertained - hundreds of places to discover and explore across the large and beautifully crafted landscape (although after a while these can get rather repetitive), and a similar number of sidequests. I got 100 hours out of this game in a single runthrough, but you could easily squeeze out more or choose to start again.

To get the most out of Oblivion I would recommend exploring early on in the game. Don't make the mistake of just thundering through the main storyline straight away (even though you can play on afterwards). Find as many places as you can and investigate EVERYTHING - you never know where you will find a quest or something interesting. This way you are likely to have levelled up enough to get good rewards from quests and enough money to buy a house so that in future you can hold onto as much stuff as you want.

Another reviewer said the levelling up system is the "worst ever" as enemies level up with you. While this is a valid opinion, I would argue that this keeps the game interesting, and means that as you progress you have the chance to aquire new weapons and armour.

There is oppurtunity to choose the way you play the game - you can choose to play through the game steathily or with brute force, good or evil and this adds a nice dimension. This is added to by the fact you can create YOUR character - with a choice of races with different upsides and downsides and which skills your character is best at.

The combat system, it has to be said, is pretty poor. There isn't any variation - it's pretty much just stand and swipe.

3.0 out of 5 stars WANTED TO LIKE IT MORE... 11 Jan 2011
By herdy1
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As my title of this review says, I did really want to enjoy this game more than I have been. I know it was a flagship title and is bound to show it's age by now, (although other games like GoW are still outstanding by today's standards), but the constant loading times really interrupt the whole experience. It looks good, but every time you open a door it can take up to 15 seconds to load, and there are a lot of doors to open! Also, when moving around the game world, particularly on horseback, the constantly recycled landscape has to load about every 30 seconds. It is very frustrating. The actual gameplay is very open ended, and you could play for 100 hours without even doing the main quest, but locating a new cave or fort/ruin every couple of hundred yards soon gets tiresome as they begin to all look the same. The only thing that changes is the enemies as you level-up. I may be being harsh, and perhaps at the time it deserved the high scores it got, but I cannot rate this game that highly compared to the current quality of other releases. Too many techincal issues do unfortunately spoil this. I'm not sure if installing it on the HD would make a difference to load times, but having bought the 4gb HD model I do not have the room for it, so cannot say...maybe someone else could clarify that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Value defined 28 July 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first got my 360 in 2006, I spent my last pennies on Oblivion. It was a gamble but paid off. I must have put around 200 hours into this now; seen it, heard it and finished it. Still being played to this very day as a break from Gears. The fact that people say it's aged saddens me as I have obviously aged with it, but it still looks fantastic. If you've never played this, it's well worth the price. It's not everyone's cup of tea and I can remember being slightly put off by the slow start but give it time and it will reward you

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic yet unrefined 27 Feb 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
as the title says, this is an extremely large game with so much to see and do, that you can easily be entertained for hours upon end. However after playing for a while you can find a considerable number of flaws in game.

pros
- Continuous levelling up system, including weapons, armour and enemies
- Design your character from start to finish, including appearance and abilities
- Play exactly how you want to. Can steal and kill your way across the land or become the saviour of the people
- Horseback riding and instant map movement to allow quick travelling across the map
- Highly interactive world
- Many varying quests
- Numerous ways of playing ie become an assassin, brawler, gladiator, mage or many others

cons
- Fights often just turn into a slugging fest with no real skill
- Locations are repeated across the map, right down to individual features on map
- Slow loading times
- Highly repetitive gameplay

Due to the size and style of this game, it is certainly a must for both serious and casual gamers. However spending too much time playing it continuously can drastically lessen the appeal.
