The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360)

 

This is a rare and remarkable achievement--a huge, open-ended, complex, detailed role-playing game that's fun to play and a pleasure to behold. Oblivion not only delivers everything that earned the Elder Scrolls series the devoted loyalty of a huge...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

 

It’s been a long, hard day. Your character, Cleos, champion of Azura and ruthless Nord of Eastmarch, is bruised and broken from his latest endeavour down in the bowels of Bleak Falls Barrow. Walking through the hold of Whiterun in the lazy afternoon...

Technically, Skyrim is fantastic, but in creating memorable experiences, it is an utter triumph. Bugs are rare and often minor, and the same pitfalls that have plagued previous titles are still present, but you’ll learn to ignore these slight mishaps,...

The Good: Incredibly expansive adventure loaded with quests, sidequests, and sidequests to sidequests, plus tons of equipment and other cool stuff. Good leveling system. The Bad: User interface is a little clunky. Some bizarre gameplay moments. The...

I recall when I was in graduate school, something like 17 or 18 years ago, playing The Elder Scrolls: Arena. There was a dead king, an usurper to the throne, and some staff broken into eight pieces to reassemble, but that was all just cake icing; a...

A cold breeze slips through the trees surrounding me, somewhere out in the hills in the southeast portion of the province of Skyrim. Snow hasn't covered this landscape, so it's got a wonderful fall atmosphere to it. Leaves crunch under my feet in this...

Many gamers and critics hailed Oblivion as their game of the year for 2006, and most of those wound up picking Fallout 3 for the same honor in 2008 - and I don't see that streak breaking in 2011, either. While other games this year have delivered...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the big, bold, and beautiful sequel you hoped for and is sure to bewitch you for countless hours.

Immense world stuffed with varied tasks to perform ; Dragon battles are a blast ; Lovely art design capped by some beautiful, atmospheric touches ; Enjoyable battles that you can approach in a variety of ways ; Lots of compelling, self-contained...

Glitches and bugs frequently disrupt the immersion ; Friendly AI is often more of a hindrance than a help

As for standard spells, they come in the usual schools of magicka: destruction (zap skeletons with sparks!), conjuration (summon a giant frost atronach!), alteration (light the way ahead!), and so on. You can even dual-wield spells, going full-on mage,...

For just pennies per day…

Pick any synonym for “fun,” “deep,” or “huge.”; Stunning presentation with luscious visuals and a memorable musical score

The envelope-pushing comes at a technical price

If you took a week off to play, would it be enough?

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

 

Oblivion is the latest chapter of the hallowed RPG franchise known as 'The Elder Scrolls' from perennial developer Bethesda Softworks. While no cohesive and over-arching plot links them directly together, each chapter of The Elder Scrolls series is...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is simply the most comprehensive game and experience on the Xbox 360 to date. While a few other games on the system might do one or two things as good or slightly better than Oblivion, none of them come close to...

Sleepless in Cyrodiil

 

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has finally arrived on the PS3, and even a year late, it's still one of the biggest sinkholes of time you can buy.

Here's the bottom line: this is the closest thing we've got right now to an offline MMORPG. That means a stupid huge amount of gameplay for the money, and with a huge story and hundreds of hours of exploration to be had, good luck finding a better value.
