Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion PC Game

  • 2K Games
  • M - Mature
  • Genre RPG
ICON Loading...

When Emperor Uriel Septim VII is assassinated, the transdimensional gates between the world of Cyrodiil and the Planes of Oblivion open and the demonic Daedra invade. Your character is tasked to return the last surviving member of the Septim line, recover the Amulet of Kings and close the gates.

How you do this is entirely up to you as the world of Cyrodiil is not only lushly rendered using the latest next-gen graphics and lighting and shading effects, but it is vast and designed for non-linear sandbox play with dynamic weather and lighting. The Plane of Oblivion – the otherworldly home of the Daedra – is also given the same level of detail. Wilderness quests, ruins and dungeons await as do urban environments – all populated by NPC's utilizing the Radiant AI system which brings them to life.

Rather than having to repeatedly walk through the same areas, rideable horses have returned as has the ability to teleport back to areas your character has already visited. Stealth, magic and combat skills have been rebalanced with combat skills streamlined. Missile attacks are now resolved based on actual hits and characters can actively block incoming enemy attacks with a successful block causing the foe to recoil – and creating the opportunity for an attack of your own. Additional content, equipment and missions can be downloaded to aid your quest – and to provide new challenges.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Game

Pros: 1.Price
2.Graphics
3.Huge World
4.Very customizable Classes
5.Quests
6.Horses

Cons: 1.Addicting (not as bad as Diablo II, but close)
2.Can't fight on horses
3.Weapons/armor not very strong
4.Quests can get confusing after you have a bunch lined up, it's best to do the ones that you come across before piling them up

Other Thoughts: I got this game because someone said it was his favorite game and I looked at the price and review on it so I'd try it out. The world, quests, and horses remind me very much of World of Warcraft. The talking/fighting remind me of D and D Dark Messiah. This game is very good. Be careful not to get addicted to it because it is very addicting.

5 out of 5 eggsElder Scrolls IV Oblivion

Pros: Price.

Cons: Even though I have a supported card (8600GT), the game defaults to a lower graphics resolution. It also locks up in Vista 32 when you try to exit inventory.

Other Thoughts: I set the compatibility to XP and run as administrator and the game is running fine so far. It seemed to work on a Windows 7 RC 64 bit system (I can't remember if I tried the inventory screen, but I probably didn't). It complained about the HD 4670 graphics card on that system also. Even with the low resolution, the game seemed adequate. On the system I am using now, processor is a Q6600. Vista 32 WEI of 5.6 (with memory being the lowest score at 5.6 and everything else is 5.9).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I got this when it first came out, and it's been one of my favourite games ever since. The main questline isn't as engaging as one might hope, but it makes a nice addition to the several other large questlines. This is one of the most open-ended games on the market, and there are a million things to do. Choose your race, class, and gender; loot a dungeon, fight in the arena, or wrestle a bear; fight with might or magic or avoid fighting altogether. Steal everything that isn't nailed down or make an honest living as a trader, alchemist, or adventurer. Save the world or make it your personal mission to kill every NPC. Make flaming dogs fall from the sky. And if you ever get bored or feel unsatisfied with an aspect of gameplay you can go download some mods, many of which are fantastic and greatly extend the game's replay value ... which was already immense.

Cons: You may not enjoy this if you don't like role playing. This is one of those games whose entertainment value depends on what the player puts into it.

2 out of 5 eggspretty but bland-ish

Pros: Speedtree trees look nice

Cities are amazingly nice to look at.

Many community mods.

Cons: The whole game is bland. The eyecandy wears off after a few days, and then it's just... dull. The game auto-levels the AI opponents to match you, so no matter how you progress it feels the same. There's no risk of going dangerous places, because everything gets scaled to match you. The terrain looks great for a day or two, until you realize it *all looks the same*. Everywhere.

Excessive zoning.

Combat quickly gets boring and repetitive.

After the novelty of the graphics wear off, there isn't much here to hold interest.

Other Thoughts: Gothic 3 is buggy as heck, and is also a flawed game, but is at least more fun to explore the world than it is in Oblivion. I recommend G3 over this game, as a similar non-linear RPG, but it also has its flaws. They're just not *quite* as many, and the world is more fun to explore and a bit more varied.

Maybe someday someone will do a really good game in this genre.

4 out of 5 eggsBest RPG I've Played

Pros: -Excellent gameplay
-"Sandbox" Playing style
-Excellent modding support
-Great Graphics
-Retains Playability Value, even after finishing main quest
-Great AI
-Excellent characters

Cons: -Physics are off (Especially how "lofty" the arrows are)
-Limited hotkey support
-Combat controls are limited. Basic fighting can be done with just mouse clicks

Other Thoughts: 4 eggs for the physics and hotkeys, but I still say this game is superior to almost any RPG out there.

As for hardware requirements, I run this on high with max AA on an e6400@3.0 and 8800 GTS 320MB. With all the better hardware out these days, this game shouldn't be a problem to play.

5 out of 5 eggsBest PC Game Ever

Pros: This is one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played. Hours and hours of fun. Follow the in-game quest or roam the country side. Develop your character any way you like.

Cons: Few minor game stoppages and an animation hang problem after abour 240 hours of game play. A game fix is available to fix the stuck animation bit once it occurs.

Other Thoughts: Play this game on a high end graphic computer with an Nvidia 8800 GTX or better video card to get full enjoyment of the game environment.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff here

Pros: see other thoughts

Cons: not free

Other Thoughts: This was my first RGP after strictly playing FPS titles. Tried it out only to hit the $500 preferred account stuff. Didn't take long to really get into it. Excellent story and enough killing to satisfy any bloodthirsty gamer out there. I really got into the character creation part. MORAL...Don't fear change.....Try something new.
