5.0 out of 5 stars Endless Playability!!, 7 Aug. 2008
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought this game after it was recommended by a colleague. I wasn't too sure if it would be my kind of thing, as I usually play more traditional turn-based RPGs like Final Fantasy, but decided to give it a go. I've now been playing on and off in between other games for a couple of years and have to say that its sheer depth is amazing.

There are so many different ways to play, giving it a huge lifespan and preventing it from ever becoming boring or tedious. Hack and slash your way through the main quest as a Nord, climb the ranks of the mages guild as a High Elf or sneak your way through countless dungeons and make your fortune as a Khajit - it's entirely up to you. The game offers all these possibilities and just about everything in between, allowing you to play over and over again but gain a totally different experience every time.

The combat system is simple to use and offers greater variety and perks as your character grows stronger. I am by no means gamer of the year but managed to pick it up fairly quickly. The game also allows you to adjust the difficulty at any time, saving you from hours of trying to complete frustrating missions on maximum difficulty as with some games and also offering you greater challenge if and when needed. The ability to switch between first and third person view at any time is also particularly useful when confronting enemies.

There are a few minor glitches in the game, such as enemies occasionally becoming stuck behind objects or characters' voices changing (especially in relation to the Knights of the Nine expansion) but as the rest of the game is so perfectly crafted I have come to view these with a sort of affectionate amusement. Definitely nothing serious enough to make me give this fantastic game less than 5 stars. Oblivion has something for everyone and then some and is well worth the money you will spend on it.
