Tamriel's previous emperor has been slain, and with no true ruler the gates to Oblivion open and demons begin to invade the people and towns of the empire. It's up to you to find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.
The Elder scrolls is one of the best game series in the world!
It is a great RPG, but it is a little simplified from Morrowind. The quests are simple, but great. The graphics is better than Morrowind and are easier to change in the TES Construction SET.
The Story is Great, and it has a lot of side quests!
I love the adventure trough Cyrodill and i recommend the game to everyone who love TES or RPG.
If you think the game is boring, after played it a lot. Try some mods as: Nehrim: at faiths edge. It is an beautiful mod, not actually a MOD, more like a new game made in the TES Engine.
Rating: 10/10! It's a perfect game, and I plays Oblivion and MODs a lot. Try it yourself, but not be a pirate!
TES Construction SET:
The Engine and modding tool is easy to understand. I recommend everyone to at least try the TES Construction SET. BUT! It should be easier making your own quest!
And the Morrowind TES C is much more advanced with even more options.
Why this game has 9.1 is a mystery, This is what got me hooked on RPG's I still play it even though its 5 years old, and guess what I STILL haven't beat the whole thing, every time I go out I find a new quest or dungeon, a new goal. for its time the graphics are excellent, for modern times they are okay, and still impressive. People like King of the Guild give this a 1 because they don't stop and look around, they just fast travel, click click click, fast travel. Its not about what you HAVE to do, its about what you CAN do. Even if they are right, does this game deserve a 1?
Here's a review for the 360! version by IGN,
A very nice RPG. A good atmosphere but I prefer Morrowind than Oblivion. Oblivion have simplified the gameplay too much. Combats, Quests, Story are now very easy and uninteresting. When you see the background of Morrowind, its dark atmosphere and all of the cities and when you go back to Oblivion you are disappointed. Oblivion is a good game, but if you can, try Morrowind, it is better at 200%.
Oblivion had a generic fantasy land and a uninteresting storyline about some big threat that everyone has to band together and blah blah. They basically got rid of the canon Cyrodiil jungle environment and Asian cultural influences for no reason (maybe marketing choice?), and gave us ridiculously repetitious dialogue and creepy staring eyes, auto-leveling of equipment & enemies to match the characters level (which can make the game really easy early on and really hard later on EVERYWHERE), and lots of hand holding that annoys many previous fans. Without much to show for it besides graphical improvement. Skyrim atleast feels fun with its archery, magic, large monster battles, dual wielding and smithing with lore consistent with what we previously knew about Skyrim.
The first time I ever played an Elder Scrolls game was when I bought Oblivion for the PC. Although at first I was a bit lost in the enormous world presented to the player, the quests and the rewarding experience of wandering around seeking treasures was more than enough to present me to one of the most immersible and memorable settings in an RPG.
Sometimes you`ll be wishing that you could have more agency on what you do in the game, but the sheer amount and cleverness of quests quickly compensates for that.
Few games have ever presented such a well-tied together lore (except for the ending of Daggerfall, if you know what I mean)
Terrific, that`s all I have to say.
