Theres nothing worse than buying a game that looks amazing and then finishing it after a few days of being glued to the screen , theres absolutely NO CHANCE of you doing this with Elder Scrolls because its freakin huge. But thats enough about the size of the game.
If you have the patience to get out of the first section of the game you allready see the potential Oblivion has for being able to make you think '' damn , if only I would have done this with my character I wouldnt be in the predicament im in now '' Likelyhood is when you first play Oblivion you are not going to keep that character for very long.
I strongly advise that you find a decent fan site that can explain to you the intricate methods of character creation and the levelling system so you get the most out of your adventure. There are lots of variations on the races you can play as, and each one has definate playing styles that you really need to know about beforehand ( and the instruction manual that comes with the game only scratches the surface of what the characters are capable of - example -> you dont want to try and turn a stealth type character into a hack and slash tank, it just doesnt start off with the right kind of attributes , and the instruction manual doesnt even mention attributes :p )
So yeh, after 2 weeks of playing and 5 characters later ive finally managed to make the female Orc that suits the direction i'd like to go.
Some people have said the games criminal system is too strict and its too easy to get caught stealing or murdering, but frankly thats not true at all ...Read more ›
The game of the year edition is the best one you can get. It's the same price as the standard Oblivion game, but comes with the expansions. Save yourself the money down the road, just buy this one. You won't regret buying it, unless you really don't like a game that goes on forever!!!!!
Oblivion is an incredible game! How you play the game can take any direction you want as you customize your character to suit yourself! The possibilities are nearly endless. Preparing your character can be a bit tedious, but once you have one you like, it is well worth it.
The game itself is beautifully rendered. Because the game is so huge, there are some glitchy parts, and parts that really tax the resources of your XBox 360... and even gave me the dreaded Red Ring of Death!
A couple of cautions before you purchase this game:
First is that in order to access the expansions included with the Game of the Year edition, you need to have an XBox hard drive. I didn't have one, but because of how awesome the game is, I've invested in one to access all features.
Second, if you purchase this game through Amazon, it does not actually come from Amazon, but rather through a secondary company. This means that you won't qualify for free shipping and handling.
I would highly recommend this game to anyone interested in something that will take longer than 6 hours to conquer... I've played at least that in the first 24 hours of owning it and I barely feel like I'm scratching the surface of the possibilities presented in this game.
*Update* Beware if you have an old XBox 360! Make sure your XBox has lots of ventillation!
This is a game that has tons of content, extensive replayability, makes you think and is generally very entertaining. But the best thing about this game?...You can stop playing it, start again a year later and have a totally new gaming experience.

I've always liked the Elder Scrolls games due to their exploration aspect and this one doesn't disappoint. I still like Morrowind better but this game is good on its own.Published 17 months ago by Blair M. Kejick
