|The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a single-player game that takes place in Tamriel's capital province, Cyrodiil. You are given the task of finding the hidden heir to a throne that sits empty, the previous emperor having been killed by an unknown assassin. With no true Emperor, the gates to Oblivion(the equivalent of hell in the world of Tamriel) open, and demons begin to invade Cyrodiil and attack its people and towns. 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.|
In keeping with the Elder Scrolls tradition, players will have the option to experience the main quest at their own pace, and there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the vast world and make your own way. Numerous factions can be joined, such as the thieves or mages guilds, and each contains its own complete storyline and the chance to rise to the head of the faction and reap further rewards.
Oblivion features a groundbreaking new AI system, called Radiant AI, which gives non-player characters (NPCs) the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. They'll decide where to eat or who to talk to and what they'll say. They'll sleep, go to church, and even steal items, all based on their individual characteristics. Full facial animations and lip-synching, combined with full speech for all dialog, allows NPCs to come to life like never before.

Customer Reviews of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Fans of Morrowind, beware...1/17/2013
This is basically Morrowind with horses and better graphics, but no plot. The plot is not centered around the main character (which isn't necessarily bad), but you don't see the main person toomuch. Basically just end up hacking up things along the way, completing things along the quest line, and then setup the savior. Huge let down, majorly over hyped. And the skills/leveling always seem to leave you behind the enemies as they 'level with the player'. Stick with Morrowind, or now Skyrim.
This game has hours and hours of fun. My whole family plays it. And it's not the same game every time. It's great.

the dungeons are too dark. other than that, the game is perfect for what it was going for. I highly recommend it if this is the type of game you want to play. It is by far the best one player rpg i have played on xbox 360.
