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.Read more ›
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 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...

This game contains very poor code which results in bad frame rates and very long loading times. I would advise you to buy a different game.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer

No box, but that is not a real problem as I didn't purchase it for a gift. Unfortunately, the game didn't work - repeated attempts failed, disc unreadable for my Xbox. Read morePublished on 27 July 2014 by BHicks
