REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

The Elder Scrolls has come a long long way since its first appearance in this world. And it has aged well over the years. We have come to Oblivion. A world of horrible destruction. A world full of horrible destruction that you will spend many many many hours in and loving it. There is almost no end to this game. It has so much deph. The story is intristing to where youll be in a hurry to get to the next part to find out. That doesnt come along much nowadays. If your a person who like GTA or just to free roam and do what you want. Well this is the game. It has almost endless possibilities.

You can train to become a theif and sneak around at night and steal people stuff. Then in the morning run into another town and sell it to a unsuspecting storekeeper. Its great. There are so many side quest in this game its rediculous! From being a hitman to cleaning out a dungion youll love ever beautifully digital moment.

The skills are so varried in this game you can be pretty much whatever you want. be a mage and cast huge fireballs and enemies from a distance, learn how to create spells and create a one hit kill fireball attack. Its awesome! Be a necromancer and summon great beast to fight your apponents while you run around enjoying the fight. Be a swordsman, or a huge hammer weilding maniac its whatever you want, whenever you want. And its easy to raise your skills.  When you block in this game you actually do block. If you raise your sheild the sheild blocks the attack not some calculation on your skill of blocking that blocks the attack. And if the blow is hard enough itll knock you on your ass!

The first person fighting is the best out there. It truely is like your right there fighting with swords. You can stay as a archer and hide in the shadows and kill unsuspecting travelers and steal there goods and leave them to rot! Its a blast. The graphics are as next-gen as you can get right now. On the PC its one rig killer for sure. The best of the best will still get fps problems in certain areas. Oblivion has some of thebest grass/trees effects i have ever seen. The grass blows in the wind. And as you roam the land real time passes by and real weather effects sucks you into the world of Oblivion. Its amazing when a storm is coming. The wind first picks up then the trees hum in the wing and the rain starts slow and picks up and sometimes is harder than others. It gets darker when its storming. Its fun and very artistic.

The towns and people are done great. Although alot of the voice overs repeat from town to town, its a easy thing to over look considering every charactor has a style of there own and talks in reall time. There are horses in the game which help with traveling and just adds a lil something else to the game but you cant really do anything on them but ride them which is kinda boaring. Maybe if the ability to fight on horseback would be added it would be more fun and rewarding to buy a horse.  Every town every cave has a interior. And looks great.
