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.
Welcome to the Imperial City! You, prisoner, are in jail for something you cannot remember, but don't worry! It was destiny that brought you here! Or at least that is the explanation I got from the Emperor. Oblivion is a beautiful game for its time with the loads of wildlife and how beautiful the area was. The civilians will even have conversations on the streets about events that have been going on. The story is a fairly good one, so this makes it a fantastic game, right? Well, no. Not really. The gameplay grows to be repetetive after a while and I cannot count the number of times I've been arrested for having no stolen items and being a law abiding citizen. The combat system is fairly difficult as well. I constantly have to sit and heal myself after a fight with the little buggers from Oblivion. The ranking up system is something I do not understand either. You'd think it would be as easy as kill a few things, rank up some skills and you're good to go. Well, no. I've ranked up 3 or 4 of my skills and I cannot continue because I am still a level 1. The sidequests can be fun, too, but I'd like to be able to carry on with my primary mission. Either way, It's a fun, but difficult game that I would recommend trying if you're into a little challenge.
my favorite Elder Scrolls game.
Brilliant game better than skyrim!
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is now my favorite PC game, and I would go so far as to consider it the best PC game of all time (then again, I haven't really played that many PC games until recently). It's a great game for those who previously liked Nintendo favorites like Zelda. Being a huge Zelda fan myself, I feel right at home with Oblivion. To start, the game's world is gigantic. If it weren't for the game's map, it would be extremely easy to get lost in its beautiful world. One might think that a world so large in a video game would be rather empty, but it's really quite the opposite. Besides a main Imperial city and seven or eight other memorable towns, the world is littered with dungeons, abandoned fortresses, castles, caves, grottos, and more. If the game was just about exploring the world, it would be an entertaining adventure all in itself, but it doesn't stop there. The world looks beautiful too. Even today, in 2012, it visually stands up to a lot of games out there. I would definitely consider it a game with "good graphics." Whether it be the giant glowing mushrooms or sparkling galaxies in the sky at night, or the snow-capped peaks and rich green forests and grasslands, the world of Oblivion is as good looking as it is fun.
Honestley, I think this is better than skyrim. The game itself is good. The game after you understand how to make mods work well? 20/10
Ive gotten hundreds of hours of gameplay into this. Amazingly addictive game with ALOT of replay value. You also get a crap ton of epic quotes.
It's fun and all, but there's only a handful of quests, little dialogue options, and get's boring in a little while. Play Morrowind instead.
It's Oblivion. Motha'******' Oblivion.
I Have Wasted MONTHS Of My Life Just Playing This Game.
