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.

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.

I got this game about a month ago and i've been playing it every night for hours, the game is so addictive as there is so much to do, i find out so many new things each time i play Oblivion.
I like the fact that you can play in 3rd person or 1st person which is a good option. You can choose your race, age, abilities etc. There's so many good things about this game, a must for anyone who likes RPG games...

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?

I bought this disk not too long ago as a replacement for the old one (it got scratched and was too scary to play glitchy, characters had no faces and rooms were endless black pits) I have to say, i cannot get through a day without the need to spend at least two hours on this game, there is so much to do it is unreal. Ive been playing it for a few years now, and have only just begun the main story line, Which i really like as it isnt too easy and you have a million ways you can play it, for example, you have to go the a temple to pose as a believer in the cult, but you can either kill everyone on site (as you will have to do eventually) or just play along either the whole time, or suprise them in the middle of their speech! It is unbelievable fun to play, for example, i made someone hate me so much they killed me on site. The best characters are the city gaurds, which are scary at first, bu when you tease them and refuse to pay up or go to jail they chase you over the whole map pretty much swingging thier sowrd shouting "pay the fine! pay the fine!" in a serious voice which is just hallarious! I can decide which job is the best though, thief, assasin, fighter, mage... they all interlink and its fun when you have to be the good guy and the guy they are after in the same guild! Anyone who doesnt find this game fun has a bore disorder, and no imagination, i mean, how many other games can you just walk up onto that mountain in the distance and jump off it? you can be as creative and spontaneous as you please!
