5.0 out of 5 stars Completely WORTH It!!, March 23, 2006
This review is from: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: Official Game Guide for PC and Xbox 360 (Paperback)
I don't make a habit of buying strategy guides for the games I play -- all too often, there is more than sufficient information online for free, so what's the point, right? But in this case, I have to say I am happy I made an exception. This strategy guide is so comprehensive and in-depth it makes the 'guide to tamriel' that is included with the Collector's Ed. of Oblivion look silly. The in-depth segment on character creation alone is worth half the cost of the book to people like me who found that part of the process somewhat confusing in Morrowind - the information in this guide completely takes all the guesswork out of it, and having read it I was confidently able to make my choices regarding birthsign, class, race, sex, etc. It even includes text on how to create a few 'model-characters' to play or build off of, one for every type of player out there from the pure magic approach to the pure battle approach and everything in between. The background on enemies, characters, and aspects of the game (i.e. crime and punishment) is invaluable. No longer did I feel like I was heading off into this huge diverse and complex world without a clue as to what my approach should be, and this confidence really made the game enjoyable. Do yourself a favor and pick it up today.
