Ground-Breaking RPG of the Century

Oblivion will always be my favorite RPG, even since Skyrim was released about a year ago. The graphics, a decent upgrade from Marrowynd, along with an extensive list of things to do in-game, all add to my rating. "You" take on the role of your character, and you develop a connection with your character in-game. This was a fantastic part of the franchise, and will always remain in my heart. I still play Oblivion to this day.

This game was my introduction to Bethesda and I am now a devoted follower of all of their games. This game is one I have returned to and replay on a yearly basis (sometimes even more often).

Strong thumbs up

Out of the Elder Srolls games, I've only played Skyrim and Oblivion, and out of those two, I have always favoured this one. The leveling system was confusing for me at first, but I have grown to greatly appreciate it. The overall difficulty is an immaculate balance between challenging and simple.

Still holding up well

I don't know how many hours I have spent in the wonderful land of Cyrodiil, where this game takes place. There are lots of places to explore, items to find, quests to do and much more.

In this version of the game there is however another world included - the Shivering Isles. I won't spoil anything, but that guy Sheogorath is really funny.

Sure, the AI system can be a little strange at times (who likes overpowered mudcrabs and rats?), but that doesn't stop this game from being an unkillable modern classic.

And I haven't even mentioned the mods; there are literally thousands of awesome mods which can improve various things in the game - or make the whole thing go completely over the top!

A good RPG game

Story: After the mysterious assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, the throne of Tamriel sits empty. With the Empire to the brink of collapse, Oblivio portals are opened and Daedra march on Tamriel, leaving a trail of destruction wherever they go. To combat this evil, the player must find the lost heir to the throne and clarify the sinister conspiracy that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.

Graphics: A great graphic for the time. A chance for a classic and cares more about the game's plot. Believe me...

Audio: Great soundtrack, good dubbing of characters, including the Emperor is voiced by none other than Patrick Stewart.

Missions: In the main quest there is a multitude of missions completed seram... What's the impression of an infinite game.

Controls: Many feel that gameplay is classic... Big mistake. Much has changed in Oblivion. Mainly the combat system, which ended up being adapted for a more "simple", similar to "hybrid" Action-RPG games like Fable, with a button system to attack and to defend. The defence is no longer automatic and now the player's abilities that determine what happens when some particular aação is made.

A. I.: Artificial intelligence is weak. The only significant improvement was in NPCs, where the new AI system fully developed by Bethesda, the "Radiant AI" gave a little more life to giving them a list of goals for themselves, based on their individual characteristics characters.

Multiplayer: No multiplayer, but there is a MOD for that.

Requirements : Minimum : Processor - > Pentium IV 2 GHz or Athlon equivalent RAM - > 512MB Video memory - > 512 MB Direct3D - > Yes DirectX Version - > 9.0c Windows XP - > Operating Systems Space - > 4.6 GB free disk

The Good : The strong point of the game beyond history is the amount of quests you have to complete . As I said earlier, she is so great that the game seems to be infinite .

The Bad : The Ai game leaves MUCH to be desired, making the game easier and less worrisome.

Replay Ability: Wonderful. There is always the opportunity to return, creating a character with a different class, different race and follow a new path.

The Bottom Line : Overall the game is very good, a good story, good voice acting, a huge map, many missions. The chart was very good for that time. A chance to this great game of TES series. I assure you that if you liked the more you will enjoy much Skyrim Oblivion. Mainly discover much talking in Skyrim and you always wanted to know how it happened.
