The first time I played this game I was really disappointed. I played for maybe 15 hours and then stopped playing much. I just kept comparing it to Morrowind in my mind, and anywhere it was different I considered almost inferior. But then I played it again a year later and when I didn't compare it to Morrowind it was a lot of fun in its own right as a distinct game. Even with some things perhaps improved such as combat. The only things that I still really don't like about the game are the graphics for the faces (they just look strange) in the vanilla version of the game and just raiding different plains of Oblivion that all look the same gets a little old. But playing with the guilds, the arena, and even just exploring around can be a lot of fun.

What more can i say about this game other than its Oblivion. I've invested probably more hours into this game than i've actually lived in reality. The graphics of the vanilla version are fairly impressive, but the game only becomes all the more impressive through the efforts of a very dedicated and faithful modding community. The landscape is serene, the monsters come in all shapes and sizes, the game draws you into it and just doesnt want to let go.
It's not that great, guys.sycomantis1991 | May 15, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Oblivion has been brutally overrated in my opinion. I've put about 25 hours total into this game, and hardly any of it has been spent actually enjoying myself. The characters are plastic and devoid of emotion, the environments are the same few hundred yards copied and pasted over and over. The story doesn't start off entertaining, but seems to have potential. Unfortunately, I can't bring myself to see that potential. The gameplay is stiff and awkward, the magic system is horribly weird and clunky, and it's just an overall boring experience. I want to like it, and it's not bad per se. There's just nothing special about it and I've yet to be convinced otherwise.
Not as pretty, but so much more richanticerber | March 22, 2015 | See all anticerber's reviews »
Oblivion was the first Elder Scrolls game I ever came to play..Fell in love with the game rather quickly. Sure the graphics are dated a bit, and even for its time the models looked kinda bad, but getting past that this is probably still one of the best Elder Scrolls to date... Despite not looking as flashy as Skyrim the game feels much more in depth...The lore is stronger, the areas feel more diverse, even the leveling system is better. I have bought this game 3 times...that is how much I enjoy it..and usually you can find a pretty good deal on it.
The weakest out of the modern TES titles, but still great.heerox328 | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »
Oblivion was great for new fans of TES, but disappointing for the long-established fan base. My largest criticism, besides the terrible main story, was level/gear-scaling (highwaymen should never have Daedric armor) and generic dungeons with no reason to explore them. Those criticisms largely killed the fun and experience of the game, but putting them aside, this is a great experience overall. Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine are great additional content for Oblivion. The Dark Brotherhood questline was unparalleled and iconic. Radiant AI, albeit scaled back, was revolutionary and really brought the world to life. Even the visuals at the time were cutting edge (not the potato faces). Oblivion wasn't perfect, but it pushed the TES brand forward in a lot of ways. Definitely a game worth picking up if you like BGS games.
