Oblivion Game of the Year edition presents one of the best RPGs of all time like never before. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the main quest at your own pace or explore the vast world and find your own challenges. Also included in the Game of the Year edition are Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles expansion, adding new and unique quests and content to the already massive world of Oblivion. See why critics called Oblivion the Best Game of 2006.
Good update of TES for 2006.
Pros: There is a large world to explore in Oblivion, especially in this version with the two major DLCs included. The combat is simple but works well. A very nice soundtrack will accompany you through the world.
Cons: Anthropomorphic characters faces are quite ugly. It's very apparent that everyone in the game is the result of a template creator. Cyrodil is too obviously inspired by the works of Tolkein and DnD's Forgotten Realms campaign. The main plot is very forgettable and easily the worst part of the game, do it once and never consider wasting your time again.
Other Thoughts: Oblivion is a strange game. The main story is terrible but the rest of the game is very good for it's time. In retrospect the game can be seen as a quality title developed and released upon new hardware, when the developers are just becoming comfortable with their new design tools.
