You have the task of finding the hidden heir to a throne that sits empty. 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 gameplay is great and really flexible... Along with the mods that you can download and that I currently have active this game surpasses mos of the new generation games released.
The only lacking thing is speach, it would have been nice if you could talk about some other things than rumours or the area you're in.
I like this game a lot, because you are not being restricted to playing acording to the story line or if you want mods you aren't limited to downloading them... CREATE YOUR OWN!!!! Its a lot of fun to see how much you can experiment with the features of the game.
A few things about the game I like(WITHOUT MODS)
Houses - You can store what ever in there and once you have it, its a free place to sleep.
Weapons - Its all medieval and ancient with a good splash of magic, really makes the game difficult to play, its got very realistic weapon setting. Example - Bow runs out of ammo then you have a problem. Sword - Breaks then you stuck with fists and magic(Runs out after overuse though)
Transport - Pick quick travel to get from point A - B in no time or use your horse and explore the scenery.
Side Quests - There are tons of them, and most of them difficult (If level low)
Graphics - Can be improved with mods or new texture sets, but alone its pretty good for its time.
All in all... This game made me beg for more, and when the Shivering Isles Expansion was released, I almost cried with joy. If you haven't played this game and you plan to, then I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Oblivion gets on second place when it comes to the best game of all time. The Elder Scrolls series is the best series of all time. If you're into games with an open fantasy world, this is the perfect game for you. There's not many first person RPG's that got what Oblivion got. You can decide to stop questing awhile and jusr run around and shoot deers or explore some caves, epic freedom.
The graphics are still stunningly perfect. You will love this game if you give it a try. If you're into the whole The Elder Scrolls series then checking out the other titles, especially Morrowind, is also totally worth it.
Good game played morrowind idk it had alot more quest bigger but it was for Xbox id like to play it on PC you know id really love to see the morrowind Mod for oblivion come to life it seems like that will bring any lost fans to oblivion btw i bet morrowind main story dont think i did ever side quest though
this is a verry good game with lots of indepth backstorys and a great combat system but i found that it was slightly annoying in the respect that there whasnt a great veriation of monsters and that when you lvld up so did all the monsters so most got more and more annoying to take down.
Oblivion is a great game. Way more simple than Morrowind and the graphics can be captivating.The game can be run on a low-end pc in lowest graphics no problem. The story can be pretty bland at times but most of the time it can be very interesting.The random Oblivion gates get annoying because it ruins the scenery. There are alot of side quests and customizing weapons is cool. This game gets a 10/10
I seriously never got what's all the hate on this game about. Sure, the face models are terrible, but that ain't a reason to bury this game so badly. In fact, in some aspects I like it even more than Skyrim. Gave me a hundreds of hours of great and enjoyable gameplay, and it has a soft spot in my heart.
