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.
Oblivion has a main story that you can follow if you wish. If not you can do whatever the hell you want. There are thousands of things to do I simply cant list them all. It is a matter of running around and discovering new ways to make money, new potions to make and sell them, new people who need you to do stuff, do deeds for random people, millions of other things. You can simply run around and enjoy the views, even for an old game its very pretty and the environments never get old to me. You can explore caves and ruins, stealing any gold or weapons you find along the way. You could stumble across someone that needs something and sends you to a particular location, which will end in you doing another million side quests and they are just the small ones (Some of them are crazy). There is a huge main quest too that is just as crazy. Once you complete the main story though the oblivion gates will disappear and you will no longer be able to enter them. After I realised this I never completed the main quest more then once, though I would recommend trying it, the end is epic.
The oblivion gates are door ways to another world - YES ANOTHER ONE - which is hell like and contains hordes of nasty creatures that want to kill you. You will find them scattered around the map after you get a taste for the first one. the plains of Oblivion can be a tricky place to get through the first few levels but after a while you will just wipe the floor, grab the sigil stone and laugh in their faces. Its massively satisfying. In skyrim they replaced these gates with Dragons so you get the picture. The gates will continually turn up so you will never really run out of them unless you complete the main story.
This edition of the game has something called the "Shivering Isles" which is practically an entire other story added on to this already massive game. You will be told that there is a mysterious island to be explored and when you go there.....well I will let you find out yourself. Let me just tell you that I was wondering if I had taken something to make me see things while playing. Its very trippy.
Seriously if you are interested in playing this game just be prepared to play the hell out of it. Its very immersive and will suck you in. Many players have reported problems with social lives etc so keep that in mind. This game has no ending, you can just go on and on and on......
Its a fantastic game and should be on every gamers collection.
OK, so if you have played WoW, Guildwars, LOTRO etc or any of the previous incarnation such as Morrowind, then you will know what to expect. Ok, so there is no online content which is a slight disappointment which removes a big part of what a lot of players like and that is being able to face off against another human player, however, the general concept is the same as these games. Accept quests, kill, loot, sell, buy, and egnerally level up to some Uber-baddie or an ultra-cool hero and kick everythings butt.
There are problems with this title in that the expansive world and terrific scenery not to mention free-roaming non-linear game style tend to lead to an awful lot of walking around from one place to another. But, on the other hand the fact that you don't have to follow the same path, can choose different character classes and don't have to rely on having a group of other humans available online to finish certain parts of the game means the playability and re-playability are top draw.
If for no other reason than to show you the wonder that is true-HD game play, I would recommend this game. Not for everyone it has to be said but for those who love the genre then this is a must have for the PS3
