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.

Features:

  • Return of the Elder Scrolls: the sequel to the best-selling, role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, which has sold over 2.5 million units in North America on Xbox and PC.
  • Live another life in another world: gamers can create and play any character they can imagine, from the noble warrior to the sinister assassin to the wizened sorcerer.
  • Next-generation graphics: pixel-shader effects and high-definition televisions are fully supported to create unprecedented visuals, including lifelike towns, dungeons, and the most realistic forests ever created in a game.
  • First-person melee and magic: an all-new combat and magic system brings first-person role playing to a new level of intensity where you feel every blow.
  • Radiant AI: Groundbreaking AI system gives Oblivion’s characters full 24/7 schedules and the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. Non-player characters eat, sleep, and complete goals all on their own.
  • Realistic characters: Features over 1,000 non-player characters who come to life like never before with facial animations, lip-synching, and full speech. They even engage in unscripted conversations with each other.
  • Open-ended game play and short challenges: The enormous world of Oblivion is open, allowing players to explore at their own pace. Players will encounter shorter challenges such as fighting bandits, mixing potions, and creating magic along the way to unraveling the main quest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Close shut the jaws of Oblivion! Aug. 4 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oblivion, a world of it's own. Dec 18 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantasy Game for Teens+ May 28 2012
By j-maAN
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I previously owned this game for the xbox 360, and upon completing 'Skyrim' for the Ps3, I decided to buy this for the Ps3 and gain all the trophies for it as I did in 'Skyrim'. Little did I know, there are no trophies for this game on the Ps3. Regardless of that fact, this game is fun, exciting, and entertaining. A heavy recommendation on my part for any players who have yet or have already played 'Skyrim'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mother of all RPGs June 29 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is not your father's video game. The graphics are mind blowing. The story is excellent. Every person in the game speaks (some are even voiced by Jean Luc Picard). The depth is astounding. I have logged in more than 100 hours and I feel like I'm still just scratching the surface. This is the ultimate sandbox for grown-ups. My family misses me. If I had one (very small) complaint, it would be about the rather long load times. This is a very (very, very, very) small price to pay. How the hell do they get sooooo much game onto one little disc - it just blows my mind. Oblivion sets the bar and is now the touchstone by which I will measure all role playing games in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only fault: too much to do! June 3 2009
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great step up from morrowind Feb. 25 2009
Format:DVD-ROM
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was very much an improvement from the Morrowind(Elder Scrolls 3), however it is not without its faults.

If you are buying this for PC then i highly suggest you look up mods for this game. Some of them might be simple things like making arrows move faster or making the grass shorter. Others might be as complicated as a complete enemy overhaul so it doesn't feel like every random bandit you fight is murdering you as much as an even stronger boss type opponent.

Onto the game, it is a roleplaying fully immersive RPG set in a medival world. You get a character whom you customize to every minute detail. You then play the game how you want as much as you want. You can steal, kill, protect, explore etc.

It really is a very broad game in terms of what you can do. However it is not for people who like very active and social games. You are alone for most of the game(you can get followers) but at no time will you feel like you are part of a town or group, you really are an outcast. People will "like" you but the game doesn't have the depth to be able to change it so people will actively follow or talk to you when you become a savior of a whole town.

It is a great game but for those looking for fast paced action and a world the makes you feel connected might look towards Fable or a first person shooter.
