Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Cover Art

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This is everything and more of what an RPG should be.  Stunning environments and graphics, outstanding story with literally over 100 hours of gameplay (without the expansions), Outlandish amount of customization, fully sandbox, fun satisfying combat that blends melee, ranged and magic.  Oblivion has everything.

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Where to start? The combat is a lot of fun, you can very easily switch between different weapon types and magic depending on the situation.  You have the complete ability to do whatever you want whenever you want

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -I finished my first play through in which I skipped a lot but still managed to rack up over 60hours played, and immediately started a new game of which I’m about 20+hours into

 

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Graphics are amazing, very lush detailed environments.

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Sadly no and believe me it really hurts to have to give it a 1 in any category

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Long detailed main quest line.  There are also 4 other major faction quest lines and many independent quests to keep you busy.

                       

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The character you choose has very little effect on the story itself.  For instance you won’t have a different playthrough as n Imperial as you would as a Nord.  Characters will have a different defult responce based your race (Everyone seems to dislike Dark Elves)    

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Okay lets start with your character. Race, gender, appearance, class, sign, all fully customizable at the very start. You also have the ability to make completely custom spells, customize weapons and armour through enchanting, not to mention completely customized character choices and reputation.

 

Camera

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Able to switch between 1st and 3rd. Both camera styles are very easy to use.

 

Controls

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Simple intuitive controls.

 

Game Mode

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Only single player. But there is a ridiculous amount to the single player mode.

    

Gameplay Options

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Full sandbox, and freedom to do just about anything.  The game accommodates varying play styles (to a degree) with melee, ranged, and magic being very viable specializations or using all 3 in concert.

 

Progression of Difficulty

     1   2   3   4   5   6  7    8   9   10

     -You can make the game as easy or hard as you want. There is a slider that will allow you to adjust the difficulty from you doing 6x normal dmg and the enemies doing 1/6th to you doing 1/6th and the enemies doing 6x

 

Minor Details

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Fame/Infamy system makes for interesting consequences for your actions

     -There are no generic NPCs with the exception of city guards.  This may not sound impressive however once you see the sheer volume of this game you will understand.

 

Sound/Soundtrack

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Fully voiced cast, however there are very limited variation of voices for NPCs
