5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant beyond imagination!, 27 Jan 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
Usually when a game has a story, you expect that the game will have limited playability, you will be forced to stick to specific tasks and have limited abilities.

This, however, is a game that will let you stray just as far as you like from the story and do your own thing! And it's not so GTA in it's approach either (limited side stories, things to do), but in actual fact you could spend hours running from (and slaying) city guards having committed a bunch of crimes. You could master the guilds of theivery, mages, fighters, and others. You could wander into the woods risking life and limb against the wierd and wonderful array from creatures to collect ingredients to mix your own potions which you can then sell on or use to manipulate your abiltities to whatever end you choose!!! It really is that open!

I have clocked up 140 hours of play since I bought this game, and I still can't say the end is in sight. And the thing is, i'm still as addicted now as when I first started. At the £40 I paid for it, I couldn't say any other game i've played on could offer such good value for money.

You begin the game by choosing your race and modifying your look, which is great. The map on first glance is large, but as you explore more, you begin to realise that the map is, infact, huge, due to the abundance of 'other worlds' such as the forts, caves and oblivion gates.

For anyone with a PS3 (not as grand on other machines), this may have been one of the first games to be released, but this could well be the best game on this console for a long time to come.

Hello, I've bought the English edition of "Oblivion GOTY Edition" for the PS3..

Please could you tell me the recent version/patchlevel of the game? My version is 1.0.0?

And does this PS3 GOTY edition/version include all patches/updates up to 1.2.0416.?

Is the Reference bug/Form IDs bug (after hundred hours of play the game screws up...)
fixed in the 1.0.0. version of the PS3 GOTY version?

Is there any problem playing a character more than 300 hours?

If not, is there a patch or an update available and how can I apply this software update on the PS3 version
Can this be done automatically using the PS3?

Please let me know.

Thanks in advance,
dcz
