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 IV OBLIVION: This game could have a review that spans a thousand pages, and still doesn't come close to revealing all that the game has to offer. Let's start at the size. This game is big. No, it's huge. It's unlike any game to come before it. You could play for months on end and still find new and exciting things to do, places to go, people to help (or hinder!) Thousands of objects, textures and characters have been squeezed onto this small circular object we know as a disc. I won't say anymore about size... There's just no way to describe it in words.  

The Sound= Incredible (voice talent includes Patrick Stewart, Terrence Stamp and other incredible actors) in fact, the speech alone takes up half the game disc. That leaves half a disc for 16 miles of fully populated game world. Mind Boggling.   

The mission structure is superb and the story progress' much better than most Hollywood blockbusters. You can join join two guilds and two other nefarious organisations... And progress in rank in all of them until you are the top dog.(or wolf) 

All this talk about the game has left me wanting to play it. Now.

Last Word: One of the best games ever made. This is an essential purchase. Believe the hype... Buy Oblivion.
