You can literally become anything you want. They give you a variety of races to choose from. You can be an master at archery of a great warrior. It's really exciting. This game is definitely worth the buy!

Product Overview

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.

Review In Oblivion, Bethesda has managed to try and offer some aid to those who are not used to complete freedom, but not at the expense of the depth of the game. Oblivion is far more casual friendly and the implementation of the controls really allows for a more enjoyable experience for the gamer...At it's heart, Oblivion is all about role playing. While you have a main quest, you can talk to NPCs, join guilds, search the countryside and pick up just about everything you see. This game allows the player to do a lot of things, and the overall experience offers so much freedom that it may be overwhelming or liberating depending on the player...a deep and enriching role-playing experience. There is a lot to do here and you could feasibly spend hundreds of hours just exploring and performing non-story quests.

Review For as grand as Oblivion is in its scope, it's equally compelling in its execution. Its depth is immediately apparent as you start by creating any character you like, beginning with a race (such as the battle-ready Redguard, the bow-and-arrow expertise of the High Elf, or the innate stealthy traits of the catlike Khajiit). Soon you'll choose a class, be it a warrior, wizard, thief or any custom combination you'd care to conjure...The fourth Elder Scrolls entry is utterly brilliant and should not be missed by any adventure-spirited gamer. It serves notice to the rest of the role-playing world, unabashedly boasting, "Can you top this?"
