If you just want Oblivion, I would suggest the GotY edition, or Direct2Drive's or Steams Deluxe GotY edition which includes more DLC. However, there is no better way to get both Bioshock and Oblivion.
Bioshock: I felt like I was playing an RPG in linear, hallway style levels. The innovative weapons, story and creatures kept me distracted from this fact for a little while, but then it just became tedious. I don't mind linear games, as long as I can move through them quickly. But in Bioshock, you have to go back and forth through the linear levels to get this gadget or kill this monster. This would be good in larger, open levels, but just plain boring in this game.
Oblivion: Almost the opposite is true of Oblivion. They got the open world part right, but the story is horrible. It's the worst story line of any RPG I have ever played. Some portal to "Oblivion," where there are lots of red goblins, stays open indefinitely while you wander around completing time-consuming missions that don't matter... boring...
My recommendation: put your money towards the newer titles of Bioshock Infinite or Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I think you'll have more luck there. Bioshock Infinite opened their levels up, and Skyrim developed a better story. If you have a lot of time on your hands and you don't mind wasting it, then this package is a good deal for you.
Oblivion. As other reviewers have noted, this is the regular version of the game, not the Game of the Year edition which includes the expansions. I was fine purchasing that since I'm just a casual gamer who probably would never get around to the additional content. The open-endedness of the game is astonishing. If you're familiar with the series (I'm a Morrowind fan myself), then you'll feel right at home with Oblivion. Even though the game is beautiful in appearance straight out of the box, there are plenty of graphical mods out there for Oblivion which will really enhance your experience if you have the system to run it. My system is "okay" or "decent," and I can run it on "Very High" settings at 1280x1024 (my monitors maximum resolution unfortunately) without issues. Additionally, I've installed many, many texture packs (namely Qarl's Texture Pack 3: Redimized), and feel that although the game has become far more impressive in appearance, I still don't have any frame rate issues. My only gripes with the game is that the interface seems like it was ported directly from a console. This can be fixed with mods though.
Bioshock. I really wish I could give this game a great review, but I just can't. I haven't even been able to really experience the game for one main reason. Lots of people who are playing the game on either Vista or Windows 7 (x86 OR x64) have issues where the in-game audio stops after the first cut-scene. I'm one of those. Although there are plenty of work-arounds available on the internet, they are not cut and dry solutions that will work for everyone. Namely, they did not work for me.Read more ›
