The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition defined a new way to play RPG games and storytell games for a generation of RPG video games. Learning from the success and failure of Morrowind, Oblivion is a more opened world to everyone to explore as your very own unique style of gameplay combining magic, melee combat with stealth and more! This edition comes with 2 DLC: Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles, which are amazing stories to discover in the game. Recommended.
After a great success of Morrowind, the series holds strong with its amazing level of graphics for its times as well as in terms of the plot and the combat system. Oblivion has what Morrowind lacked and what it had. This time it's more conventional when it comes to setting, instead of crazy swampish environment known from Morrowind we got forests and cities. Must have for all the fans of The Elder Scrolls.
This game fixed most of the issues I had with Morrowind - it actually had great, colourful graphics that were not painful and depressing to look at. Story was also interesting, just not as good as in Morrowind, it also got extremely repetitive with the gates cleaning, but the world itself was actually great to explore. While scaling of enemies was a good idea, the forced marker is debatable. While it made the game easier to play and easier to manage, it also killed some of the exploration, but that was an issue only for those who didn't want to explore in the first place. While vanilla was little weaker than Morrowind, both Knights of the Nine Quest and Shivering Isles made this game stand out, because both of those expansions are excellent and full to the brim with content. This game started many trends, both good (quest markers, scaling) and bad (horse armour) for gaming, but it still holds up to this day. Good game and in my opinion more playable than Morrowind. Recommended.
This game may not be as pretty as Skyrim (which came out 5 yearrs after it, so...) or as intriguing as Morrowind, but it still has most of the elements of what make a great Elder Scrolls game, and a great RPG: interesting story and characters, complex (though not extremely satisfying) gameplay, beautiful graphics (for the time it was released, but it still looks good today), amazing soundtrack and atmosphere and plenty of great quests. It would be a mistake to pass on playing this gem just because of it's more popular brothers.
Without a doubt one of the greatest games that I have ever played, The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion might be just a little bit over 10 years old as I write this review, but it is still one of my all time favorite games to play this day. I could not rate it lower then a 10/10 !
