An Amazing Game,
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PC DVD) (Video Game)
Overall, this is one of the best games I have ever played.....and certainly contains some of the most epic roleplay and combat scenes of any game. The area to explore is huge, and even after several hundred hours I still had not explored every dungeon or cave.
The extent to which one enjoys this game will depend very much on how it is played. Personally I am not into melee and hand to hand fghting, I love to be able to use spells and keep the enemy at a distance. One of the most enjoyable aspects for me was being able to summon up creatures to go do my fighting for me. It can be great fun to just drop an imp over a ledge in a dungeon and watch it decimate the opposition.
The graphics are amazing, especially for a game that is now 5 years old, and the atmosphere in places like dungeons and caves is well enhanced by the ambient music.
If there's a downside, it is that after a while dungeons, caves, and Oblivion gates all start to look the same. Oh, they can be hugely different in size and shape....but the basic 'look' is the same for each type. But really, by the time you get to the stage of noticing you will have played the game over 100 hours and that is way longer than most games last anyway
