I would say this is the best game I've ever played but...,
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
First of all I would like to say the comments posted above me are all completely correct and acurate. The game is highly adictive I have over fifty hours of gameplay on it at the moment and still haven't completed it. The freedom to do what you want nearly made this the best game I ever played however there is one terrible fault.
When doing the vampire hunting quest you are likely to get infected with a afflication known as vampirism. There are upsides and downsides to this you get more powers and abilities and you can carry more stuff however you cannot go outside during the day unless you have feasted which makes some quests undoable
There is however a cure for vampirism which brings me to the problem.
In order to cure vampirism you must collect a large amount of difficulty found ingredients. Once you have done this you go back to the witch and ask her to make her the potion but she refuses one of your ingredient and consequently it is impossible to be cured of vampirism
I have currently emailed the manufacturer Bethesda studios and I suspect my reply will be the same as everybody elses
"In order to fix this you will need to buy the non game of the year edition of Oblivion"
Okay so suppose you have money to burn so buying a inferior product to the one you already own isn't a problem to you. If you have already completed the shivering isles expansion pack you will lose all of your items unless stored elsewhere from that expansion pack and you will lose all of your powers (some of them MAY be recoverable by talking to Haskin in the shivering isles)
so overall if you do want this game which I reccomend in all fairness either be prepared to buy the non game of the year edition as well and remember to complete the main quest before you enter the shivering isles or which i reccomend buy it on Xbox 360 or PC. The graphics aren't as good on xbox as it is on ps3 and the content is lesser the PC version is better anyway but only if you have a high-spec PC (please check before buying the game)
So overall I would say that the vampirism bug has ruined the game for me so my favoutite game of all time still is the original metal gear solid
hope this helps

Ms. B. Saedinia says:
so does that mean if you turn into a vampire and get your remedy tossed out by the witch you're doomed? Or can you just start from the begining or set off from your last saved place? I don't understand about buying another game to finish this one? sorry i'm a newish gamer and havn't worked out what a third of reviewers talk about.
