A good time all around with a few caveats

testygamer | June 6, 2015 | Review of The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion Game of the Year Edition Deluxe - PC

Do I recommend Oblivion to you? Yes. Of course there are some things to keep in mind. First let me just say some really great things about this game. Overall I do think this game stands its ground even with the release of Skyrim. This game has some really memorable side quests (some of which leave you in awe). You could absolutely lose yourself in the many side quests Oblivion has to offer. I will give you an example of one of my favorite side quests(I won't spoil anything). You are given the task of finding a young girl and you are told that she was heading to a certain town. When you get to this town you find that everyone there is very distant and the town itself is rather empty. If you ask about the girl, people get very annoyed and even tell you to stop talking nonsense and to leave if you didn't want trouble... This made me very suspicious because when I went into the local tavern and into one of the rooms I rented out for the night you find an item that belongs to this girl. So now you know she has been here and ....I'll let you figure out the crazy things that ensue afterwards. The shivering isles dlc is a great add on and it seriously adds many hours to the game. It is however very difficult at times(at least for me). The beauty of pc games is that you can just type the good old (tgm-toggle god mode) and go through a level if you really wish to ( I do recommend trying to actually beat the missions manually). Negative: One of the biggest negatives is the fact that enemies scale to your level. Yes that may sound counter intuitive but it really is a draw. As you level up the oblivion gates become really difficult. And if you go high enough they can become downright unfair. It is definitely wise to go through as many of the gates you can at a lower level so that you can have an easier time with them. However, if you know this ahead of time I can't see this being too much of an issue. I would absolutely get this game if I were you. It isn't as pretty as skyrim but it definitely is worth playing. P.S The dark brotherhood missions in this game are way better than the ones in skyrim(I love the mission in the "mansion" esque cool)


Difficult, but rewarding

testygamer | Aug. 9, 2014 | Review of Super Meat Boy - PC

This game can be a very very frustrating experience but when you manage to beat the level you had thought was pretty much impossible, the feeling is exhilarating. The thing is if you play the first world you may be left with the impression that the game really isn't that difficult, but trust me it is. Especially when you get to certain levels(my kryptonite was the hell level...but after many hours I got through it). This game is for those who would like a challenge. It is not for those who want a nice relaxing game. However just because of its difficulty it does not mean that it is to be avoided. No quite the opposite. If you think you are up for the challenge I definitely recommend this game to you. Good Luck you will need it!
