5.0 out of 5 stars It's that good. Simply put, best of genre March 20, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Simply put, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion is not only the best RPG of the year, but arguably the next step of the RPG's evolution. Think of it this way: 25 years ago Wizardry I was state of the art in all parts of the RPG - graphics, game design, and character build (stolen straight from D&D). That one game changed the way others were built. Today, Oblivion not only has state of the art graphics but also state of the art game design and character build - essentially, the culmination of 25 years of electronic RPG design. The competition has a lot of work to do to catch up, and it is likely many of the features here will be borrowed for other games. This is a clear 5 stars overall, with the only two flaws being like its predecessors the game is simply massive and the controls can be a bit awkward.

For those who never played it, Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was a great game and major advancement in the genre. (In a sign of how good it was, 3 years after its release the original collector's edition still sells for near its original cost in the secondary market versus other games which might go for 10% of what you paid for them. Incredible.) More specifically, it really reinvented the RPG genre with skill-based advancement - if you want to be a fighter, kill something with a sword - and open-ended quests.

What is most noticable about Oblivion besides the eye-popping but system straining graphics (anything lower than a high end PC from last year will likely have problems, but the upside is this screams to be played on a 45" LCD monitor at 1920x1080p) is that Bethesda improved upon Morrowind rather than reinventing the wheel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait March 21, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite the long wait for the development on this title to finish, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has proved well worth the wait. I haven't had more than 10 hours in the game so far, but already I can say it is less buggy, more intuitive, and just as deep if not deeper than Morrowind.

FYI, I didn't play more than 30 hours into Morrowind, because it kept locking up on my Xbox even though the game wasn't scratched and no other games skipped. Just as background - that was my only Elder Scrolls experience till now.

On my PC (currently with a 6800GT and a 2.6Ghz Athlon 64 with 1 Gig of DDR400), load times between areas are short - maybe 5 to 10 seconds TOPS - and when moving through outside areas loading is non-existent. Definitely much better done than Morrowind.

The graphics are stunning. The auto-detection sets everything for you, and doesn't allow you to make many changes. I'm sure there will be ways to force higher settings on lower cards later on, but the gameplay was smooth and stunningly gorgeous, and I expected no less than that.

Indoor and city textures are best, smoke effects are absolutely amazing - ultra-realistic. Flames are also brilliant. The night sky and moon are a sight to behold, and the vegetation doesn't extend to the horizon, but looks great as it appears, and smoothly fills in as you cross the terrain.

The voice acting and sound effects are done brilliantly. If you have 5.1 surround, it won't be wasted on this title. Patrick Stewart's voice acting work at the beginning is a wonderful and fitting introduction to the quality of this game overall. Bethesda really does seem like the Shakespeare of game developers to me, after only a short time with this game.

Travel has been simplified.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thinking of buying it? DO IT! June 26, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First, I'd like to be honest... No review can do this game justice, this one included. I would also like to note, I was never a fan of Morrowind. Played it for a few hours, felt lost, and got bored... This game has similar potential to turn you off, BE CAREFUL!

The first thing you must understand is that this game rivals the real world. It's vast. It's beautiful. It's easy to get lost and feel lost. After playing for a few hours I was ready to throw in the towel... Then I found the games true potential. Two hundred hours later... I'm still playing. =)

Let's go point by point (because it's fun):

1) Graphics. Amazing! Trees, flowers, snow, bugs, dust, smoke... It's all here. While a top-end PC isn't required, the game will eat as much power as you have, enhancing every aspect unbelievably! If you on the lower side, do not worry. There is a fully customizable video section allowing you to alter settings to your visual delight. Additionally, there are "Tweak guides" which will help you attain the best performance for your machine (google!). Personally, I fell in the "Medium" category, and was amazed to say the least.

2) Sound. Since this review has to be G-Rated I'm going to put this lightly... I do a lot of gaming in the dark, at night, and to say the least, I've mistaken a few in game sounds to be real around me. My speakers aren't top notch, pretty much the run of the mill Dell 5 speaker setup with a woofer, but I kid you not... You will get startled from time to time. Sound levels adjust beautifully for distance, nature will buzz, doors creek, etc, etc.

3) Voice. Usually this would fit under "Sound" however, I'm sure you'll agree, in this case, it deserves its own category.
