This book has all kind of information - almost everything you ever wanted to know about Oblivion. First, the walkthroughs and discussion about character creation are very valuable and in-depth. There's information on every quest line, every major area, maps of everything - everything you need is in here...

However, what it lacks is a more comprehensive index. Say you're in the middle of a quest, you run across an obscure plant you've never seen, and want to know what to do with it? No index entry. How about a person in town who's important to a quest, but you're not sure which one? No index. You pick up an object and it says its a quest item, for a quest you don't have. Want to find out which quest it is? Too bad, unless you want to read through them all.

Basically, its nice to have the maps and such to refer to, but without better ways to find the info in this book, its not anywhere near the useful tool it could be.

Final prognosis - if you're really interested in getting walkthroughs for all the quests, etc, buy this book. If you want to be able to get at specific info, google is a better friend to have.

The guide puts a lot of the difficult decisions into convenient grids so you can make the optimal choices. I have been able to find every quest that I have had questions about and the guide tells you alternative paths so you don't have to save and reload just to figure them out.

This game guide is a great extra if you own the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game. I have it for the PS3, but it covers all systems. It has great tips and walk throughs for the entire game. Especially helpful on those areas that you might get caught up on, or if you're just looking for some additional information on areas that you think you might be missing things in. It has very detailed explanations, very easily followed as well as some good screen shots to go along with it. One of the better game guides I've purchased, I Highly recommend getting it if you own the game.

The guide is well put together, I borrowed a friends and I had to have my own. If your indecisive on whether or not to get the game after reading this guide and seeing how large and in depth the world of Oblivion is the decision should not be a hard one.....Get the game, get the book in any order.

For a printed guide for such an in depth game, this book is well worth the money. If you don't have the internet or even if you do, this book is a must have for people that have the game. The internet is a great place to find some of the same information, but sometimes I find myself looking in the book for stuff I cannot find online. Both are great resources for for the game. I recommend buying this book if you own the game. Must have for Oblivion fans.

Format: Paperback
i know my title and rating may not seem to fit, but allow me to explain:

normally i do not advocate the use of strategy guides for games, but with Oblivion, you need it. the guide is excellent. it does a good job of covering all of the aspects of the game, everything from the quests to maps to freeform quests to character creation. basically everything you'd ever need. BUT...

there are online resources that are equal to this that are free (like the unofficial elder scrolls wiki, which is incredible). so, if you're going to be near a computer, that is a better idea. but if you're not able to play the game near a computer, this guide is helpful. i recommend saving the money and getting shivering isles, but if you have the money you might as well get this too.

Ah the World of Oblivion.

Quite simply one of the most amazing games ever made, in my humble opinion.

The game guide - well, it could be better...

I had to return the first book - a series of pages were crimped and terribly misprinted. I would have returned the second copy but the retailer did not have another. The text in many of the sidebar sections of the pages are horribly blurred - in some sections completely unintelligible - sections that of course pertain to the main storyline of the game.

Aside from poor printing issues, the book contains an unbelievable amount of information. The book is huge! Especially helpful is an index, which allows you to quickly get help on some of the more obscure topics of Oblivion, such as the magical soul gems, buying houses, and owning horses.

What I especially enjoyed about this book was how it gave you a little "behind the scenes" insight into the story, the characters, and the expansive land that is Cyrodiil. On occassions when I'd get a little trigger happy and skip some dialogue, I could usually go back to the book to pick up the part of story that I missed.

Don't buy a shrink-wrapped copy. Leaf through it to make sure it's legible, then sit down and prepare to use a lot of spare time. Also, be sure to flip through the non-quest information towards the back of the book - there's some pretty neat stuff documented that without this book, most players probably wouldn't even know about.
