The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion | PS3 - game of the year edition
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jan 30, 2010

After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, the throne of Tamriel lies empty. With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion open and demons march upon the land - laying waste to everything in their path. To turn the tide of darkness, you must find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel. In development for 4 years, Oblivion is another leap forward in role-playing with its combination of freeform gameplay and cutting-edge graphics for the world under The Elder Scrolls. ... PROS: (1) HUGE free roam world to explore (2) hours of sidequests to complete (3) create your own character (4) superb graphics (5) Extremely large amount of gear ... CONS: (1) NPC Reality system not very realistic (2) no online or multiplayer play (3) levelling system is flawed (4) World gets to be static and therefore boring (5) Lack of goal (after main quest) gives player little motivation

Expansive world which is as close to being alive as I have seen
3 Star Review   By member Sdiver2489 - May 5, 2008   

Strengths: HUGE world, Interaction with ANYONE that's actually varied, joining different factions is fun, gaining experience is fun.

Weakness: Some bugs have been reported(especially for the Game of the Year version), learning curve is fairly high, menu System is confusing, little explanation of items or meanings of effects.

This is a game that is best described as "different". I have never played a game like it. You are in a living world, characters move about at their will, they'll communicate with one another, nothing really feels "planned" like some other games. The game is all what you make of it. You can choose to explore; To learn about people; To influence them; To help people; To hurt them. It's really all up to you. The game gives you that freedom. However, this brings me to my point that this game is what you make of it. If you choose to not want to explore the side quests or advancing your characters abilities, you'll likely get bored quickly and want to move on to something with a more forced storyline. I should make note here that I discovered via searching that there appears to be a "vampire" bug in this game of the year version. This will cause you to not be able to cure yourself should you become a vampire. Noting this, I am making sure to save fairly often and in various save files so I always have something to fall back on should this happen.

I would highly reccomend this game to anybody that enjoys OBlivion to get this version. The added previous and continued storyline will add to the enjoyment and understanding of the game.

The best RPG of this generation just got better
5 Star Review   By member rilokiley - Oct 17, 2007   

Strengths: Free form experience, tons of varied quests, huge land to explore, excellent graphics and sound, expanded content

Weakness: Leveling system can be kooky at times, no downloadable content available, takes up 5GB of hard drive space, a lot of load times

Oblivion was released earlier this year on PS3 after much delay only to get an upgrade this month with the Game of the Year Edition. It's pretty much the exact same game as before but with the Shivering Isles expansion included (which is estimated to have as much content as a third of the original game). PS3 users are unable to download extra content so if you want more Oblivion, this is the only option right now. Oblivion has a main quest but there are so many side quests, you could spend dozens of hours doing them before tackling the main quest. Unlike other games, the side quests in Oblivion are actually interesting, and at times, extremely long. The outdoor lands are extremely large and beautifully detailed, the graphics support up to 720P, and full surround sound. All characters have audible voices as well. It's just a massive, fun game. There are some negatives, though. The leveling system increases your stats based on how often you use them. It makes logical sense but it can be frustrating leveling up different stats or abilities. Additionally, the PS3 version still has no downloadable content, which makes it a loser in this department compared to the Xbox 360 or the PC. However, it looks a bit nicer and loads a bit faster compared to the X360, and a PS3 costs much less than a good PC capable of running Oblivion in all its glory. While you play the game, it caches itself to the PS3 hard drive, taking up to a maximum of 5GB. And, almost every time you enter or exit a building or town, expect it to pause to load the environment. Regardless, it is an excellent RPG and its positives far outweigh its negatives. Buy it!
