Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. Oblivion is the latest chapter in the epic and highly successful Elder Scrolls saga and utilizes the latest PC and next-generation video game hardware to fully immerse the player into the experience. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, players can unravel the main quest at their own pace or explore the vast world and make their own challenges.

After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, desperate factions vie for control of Tamriel’s throne. 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 the player must find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.

The fourth chapter in the Elder Scrolls series promises to take you far from reality and plunge you into a fantasy world of swords and sorcery!

In the fantasy world of Tamriel, on the continent of Cyrodil, dark powers plot the total destruction of a lustrous, beautiful world by opening inter dimensional portals into Tamriel, and unleashing armies of demons upon the armies of Men, following the assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim.

After a brief introduction to the gameplay, the character is thrust into the world of Tamriel, free to do as they please. The first thing one notices is the attention to detail. No expense was spared in bringing the world of Tamriel to life. The landscape is lush and green, with rolling hills and beaten paths, plants and trees that gust in the wind, and weather effects that are remarkably realistic. The passage of time is regulated by night-and-day cycles, with many nights offering beautiful views of a star-filled sky and two beautiful moons (provided it's not a cloudy night.) The creatures in Oblivion look, move, and sound real, right down to every detail. Other people in the world go about their daily routines, talk amongst one another, eat, sleep, harvest crops, ride horses... the list goes on!

Oblivion is very open ended, with only one real quest line that keeps the game's progress linear. You don't HAVE to do the main quest at all if you don't want to, and should you choose not to do it, you won't be penalized at all.

There's no obligation to be a typical Fighter/Wizard/Thief type character either. Oblivion offers a variety of other classes to play. There are the standard Fighter/Wizard/Thief types, as well as some hybrid classes.

This game is basically a country. A landscape filled with hundreds of quests, thousands of NPCs and endless multi-level dungeons and caves.

It's an RPG, and probably the best action-rpg i've ever played, and I've been gaming for 15 years. I wont go into the story, because you can read up on that elsewhere, or better yet, experience it yourself by playing the game. Even though it's been out for almost 5 years, i still consider it the best looking game on PS3 to date. I've played Fallout: New Vegas and Gran Turismo 5 (recent titles) and Oblivion still looks better. You can seriously get immersed in this game and lose yourself (and sense of time).

It's a level-based game (1 to 100 i believe) and theres an endless combination of character classes you can make, not to mention all the interesting weapons / items in the game to keep you occupied.

I recently jumped back into it and started a new character which I've put about 80 hours into, and he's only level 16... So it will definitely keep you busy for awhile without getting boring. BUY IT!

As I agree wholeheartedly with Ian's assessment of the game I won't repeat his very apt critique of it. In my opinion Oblivion is by far the best RPG game that I have played in a long time. It easily occupied my time for 100 + hours of game play. I would just like to add a few minor critiques of the game. I have recommended this game to many of my friends and have gotten several "tepid" opinions of the game. There are two main frustrations that are being voiced. The first is that they don't understand the complexities of the game. If you are not a fan of RPG games, the aspects of alchemy, potions and magic in it, as well as the thousands of items that can be found in the game, can become confusing and overwhelming at times. My recommendation is to stick with it rather than giving up after a half hour or so. Once you have learned the complexities of the game you will quickly find that you can't turn it off. Secondly, opponents in the game level up as you do, so an imp in the beginning of the game will become more powerful as the game goes on. This has frustrated the player that wants to go back to an area and wreak havoc and seek the ultimate revenge on those little beasties that killed him/her early in the game when he/she finally levels up. Although those monsters become easier to defeat as you gain experience and equipment they are certainly not as easy as other role playing games have been in the past. Some people love this aspect of the game, while others hate it. In my opinion if you don't at least rent this game and try it out then you are doing yourself a great disservice.

The only problem I associate with this game is that there is too much to do! I played this game alone with 6 other PS3 games on the shelf. I never finished it! I had to force myself to put something else in the machine. Bourne, Dead Space, Afro Samurai and others are on the back burner while I play this never ending story. Transporting your self around the map can be long too.

Be prepared for days (or months) of dedication.

I actually got this game after becoming obsessed with the sequel, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While obviously behind Skyrim in terms of graphics, I still have really enjoyed this game. I find the lore of the Elder Scrolls fascinating and have really enjoyed piecing together stories that were mentioned in passing during my Skyrim play-throughs. So far Oblivion has been very immersive and I would say that if you're someone who likes RPGs where you can literally get distracted from the main story for weeks, then you will enjoy Oblivion. I actually can't comment much on the main story line as I've been distracted going through the various guild missions for many, many, many hours.

The skill (and perk system) is much more customizable in Skyrim, but there are still plenty of interesting ways to customize your character. The main annoyances would be the armor repair system (which was subsequently removed) and other minor things like arrows having weight.
