Broken [UPDATED WITH SOLUTION]
on 1 November 2008
Be aware, the PS3 Game of the Year edition has a game breaking bug which cannot be worked around. If you are infected and turn to a vampire you cannot complete the 'Cure for Vampirism' quest due to a bug with one of the NPCs. The only known solution is to get a hold of a copy of the original and use that while completing the quest. Bethesda refuse to comment or patch the problem, despite having already done so for the 360 and PC version. With this in mind, I strongly recommend you steer clear of this title until the issue is resolved.
EDIT Oct 2008: I thought I would update a review to note that a possible work around has been found for European copies. You can bypass the bugged code by loading the game up in a different language that is supported in game like German (ie. change the system language to German and load the game). The bloodgrass should now be accepted and you can switch the language back.
Be aware, changing the language can interfere with your save. If you have been to Shivering Isles you may find your progress there reset. *Everyone (regardless of progress) should back up their save before attempting this solution.*
This solution does not appear to work on North American copies of the game. I have left the one star rating.. Oblivion is a good game but a developer shouldn't allow a clear bug like this to remain without an official patch to sort it out.
