What do these ratings mean?

    The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion is no doubt, a great game, but like every game out there, it has its very highs and its sometime lows. My first complaint about Oblivion is that it feels almost smaller than Morrowind, and Morrowind was less then half of Oblivion's size, making me feel like the fast travel feature was a blessing and a curse. Another thing I don't like about Oblivion is another comparison to Morrowind, with my opinion that Morrowind was 1000 times more customizable than Oblivion. I almost feel like my houses in Oblivion are just rental properties or even Inns, but in Morrowind everything felt more like mine.

    Oblivion has some of the most beautiful graphics I have ever seen, and the world is even prettier then the most beautiful places on our earth, it's just simply astonishing. Once again though, another Morrowind comparison. I just loved the world in Morrowind, it seemed almost less civilized and more mystic to me, but at the same time, a place I would love to visit, if that makes any sense. Either way though, I find myself wanting to play Oblivion more just to experience the visuals.

    In conclusion, I think Oblivion deserves around the same score Morrowind recieved, because they both have better points that one of the games didn't have. Make sure if you havn't played any Elder Scrolls games to pick up Morrowind or Oblivion first. After that experience, make sure to pick up Arena and Daggerfall, which are both beautiful for their time and a completely custom experience like Oblivion.

    Thank you very much for reading, and I hope you enjoy the game.
