Wow, very "nice game", compelling main story and some guilds but tends to drag after.

When you come to starting the game you have many options on the appearance of your character but the actual races and classes are very indiverse, as now im a level 21 " dark elf", that I had originally set out to become and archer. However I have a staff that hits more than my bows, and doesnt use up arrows.
It is far too easy just to become into a tank, or staff tank, with on my cases i know of people getting , umbra and full ebony ( very good armour, quite easy to attain), using umbras soul capture to fill soul gems, and just tanking. Enchanting all of the ebony armour and enchanting a claymore. With alot of strength and endurance , not dependant on class or race, it is too possible to tank.
That said , there are many mods out there to improve the game, and hopefully patches , but it would work alot better if Bestheda offered a system to download mods, or etleast had a site dedicated to them, and hand picked the best, as there is very many on the internet.
In conclusion , with enough mods, patches and playing dedicated to the way you set out to be , not diving into the main storty and finishing that immediately oblivion can be alot of fun, offering some very stylish gameplay and graphics, but it seems to be slightly dumbed down , probably due to the fact it came out on x360.
Better or worse than morrowind? If you can be bothered to download mods and play it the way its meant to be played better,a masterpiece, if not , an average game.
