well if ur wanting to know if u would like it..i recommend renting it first. Some people love it but some people hate it. It just depends on ur style. Its an open ended rpg..u can do really anything u want in it. If u do get it..i would warn u that once u get into the open world....u will literally be over whelmed and not know where to go. I was and i started to get worried that i would draw away from this game ...but once u look up some walk throughs and what to do and stuff..u start to get into it alot. I have to at least play 2-3 hour sittings because of soo much to do..

I kinda disagree, you might be confusing Oblivion with Morrowind.

Oblivion will be a great game in 5 years. If the XBOX 720 comes out, I'll get Oblivion for it. It's just that freaking awesome!!

"Overwhelmed and not know where to go"?

Not in Oblivion. Sure, overwhelmed, but all your quests are listed and marked on your map. You can't possibly not know where to go. You can go anywhere. Do whatever you want. Do a quest, or just look around. It's impossible to be bored with Oblivion unless you've played for about sixty hours. The only people I know who didn't know where to go and got confused were sorted out when they saw the quest list.

Oblivion remains one of the best 360 games. If you like RPGs, you'll enjoy it. It's a solid game, with lots of customizations, lots of extras available on XBL, and will definitely keep you busy for awhile.

I didn't know much about Oblivion when I bought it but sorry to say when I started getting killed alot cause I didn't know how to level up much or get stronger in the game to keep on passing the main quests and ended up not playing it anymore. But I will buy this game again next year and start from the beginning and be more careful and take easy steps and maybe buy the strategy guide. Also one of the reasons I stopped playing it was was cause my old 360 wouldn't allow me to play it. Screen froze way too damn much. But now I have a better new 360 so I would most probably play this game again.

If you haven't played oblivion yet, don't hesitate to pick it up. It's easily one of the best RPG's that I've ever played.

Oblivion is great and everything but you cannot properly say that you can do anything you want. Morrowind on the other hand gave you much more freedom. I'm talking for example of the fact that in Obilvion you cannot kill anybody you want (certain characters just cannot be killed) or for example you cannot pick certain doors if its not the right moment in the game. Both of those things were possibile in Morrowind. And those are just examples, i could come up with more but i think i made my point.

That said, Oblivion is still an awesome game and certainly deserves to be bought.

Not to be rude but why wouldn you not get the game just because it's a year old? What's the difference (besides graphics). To answer your question yea get it it's a great game was my fav til ME. You should get the GOTY Edition it has extra quests, and weapons, and stuff.

He meant right when you get out of the sewers for the first time. I was pretty lost too, and then when I got poisoned....

Yeah go for it, definitely. I still play Oblivion all the time, even as of late. I have Mass Effect too and am enjoing it quite a bit, but Oblivion still has a LOT going for it that Mass Effect doesnt.

It's better for the PC. The modding community is HUGE.

But if you can't run it for the PC, then get it for the 360.

The main campaign is short rougly 20-25 hours but the side quests will absorb hundreds of hours. The world is detailed and quite amazing. The voice acting is top notch (Patrick Stewart as the king come on?). The combat is a great improvement over Morrowind if you've ever played it. The GOTY edition comes with the first expansion pack Shivering Isles which alone is $30. Theres another downloadable one and it doesn't add to much to the game but its pretty cheap if I recall.
