About The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion® Game of the Year Edition

About this game

The Elder Scrolls IV: 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.

Key Features:

  • Live Another Life in Another World
    Create and play any character you can imagine, from the noble warrior to the sinister assassin to the wizened sorcerer.
  • First Person Melee and Magic
    An all-new combat and magic system brings first person role-playing to a new level of intensity where you feel every blow.

    Battle the denizens of Shivering Isles, a land filled with hideous insects, Flesh Atronachs, skeletal Shambles, amphibious Grummites, and many more.
  • Begin a New Faction
    The Knights of the Nine have long been disbanded. Reclaim their former glory as you traverse the far reaches of Cyrodill across an epic quest line.

Oblivion is still a great game, but it does have its fair share of issues. Trying not to spoil anything, the main plotline goes in an interesting direction, though I think they might have missed their mark with it. Gameplay-wise, going from Morrowind to Oblivion, a lot of mechanics have been simplified, for better or worse is subjective in some instances I feel. For example, several actions such as combat and spellcasting no longer operate under RNG, so you don't miss point-blank strikes on enenies and cannot fail to cast a spell. Combat in general can get a bit monotonous, as spellcasting is pretty still pretty tedious if you focus on several types of spells. Melee combat is largely just pressing attack until the enemy stops moving, but since enemies scale to your level, it's always a bit of a chore to kill anything. Yeah, level scaling. This is one of the largest problems in Oblivion. In an attempt to make the game stay balanced regardless of where you were, they inadvertently created a large imbalance. This is because the way enemies scale isn't related to how your skills or attributes grow, but your overall level. For (a personal) example, if you're an Acrobat and you end up leveling Sneak to 100 at the very start of the game and expend your level ups without multipliers, the gap between you and your enemies grows significantly in their favor. You might find bandits wearing Elven or Glass equipment while you're stuck with your tutorial area dagger and dying from one hit. You end up having to plan how and when to level up to avoid this issue. Another commonly criticised problem is that a lot of dungeons and caverns were actually automatically generated, making several areas look almost -- if not completely -- identical to each other. The game is also extremely buggy, but that's not news. You might want to save often though, since Oblivion likes to crash with no warning sometimes. Usually the only "warning" it might give is a sudden drop in frames which usually indicates that a crash to desktop is not far away. Before I finish this ranty review, I have to add that the Shivering Isles expansion is my favorite Elder Scrolls expansion out of all of them. The new strange world you have to explore and the antics of Sheogorath are great fun. Not sure how well this conveys it, but I still consider Oblivion to be a great game. I was able to ignore the issues I had and greatly enjoy the game through several playthroughs.

Oblivion still holes up today.

Oblivion is one of the most interesting games in the Elder Scrolls franchise, boasting a rather hefty amount of content to explore well giving reason to start multiple playthroughs, trying out different play styles and going for different quests. Though it might not be a perfect game, it still holds up in today's open-world RPG filled market as a true gem, sometimes even better than Skyrim.

I initially started playing this game because I heard good things about it and wanted to get into RPGs for Starfield, now I’m just leveling up my speechcraft by simply talking to people, I’m not even doing side quests or anything, I’m literally just walking around looking for people to talk to

Basically unplayable without unofficial bug fix patches but nostalgia is keeping me playing. Dungeons get repetitive but the main plot is still very good.
