Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

WARNING buying this game could result in losing your girlfriend, your family disowning you, losing your job, you could lose everything if not careful with Oblivion.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for the 360 is probably the best RPG on the 360 right, hell it might be the best RPG ever. In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion your charecter has to pretty much save the heir, find the amulet of kings, and stop the gates of Oblivion hell from opening everywhere and destroying everything! Yeah your guy is going to have a busy day.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360 game) - screenshot 27 / 51    Talk about charecters you can make endless amounts of guys that are all different. You have different races, birthsigns (which give you bonuses), and types. If that isnt enough for your high elf ass they have plenty of other things to edit your guy like being able to make pretty much any kind of face you want your charecter can be as ugly as the Ben Roethlisberger after his wreck or as handsome as Tom Cruise. You can make your charecter's skin green as vomit or as pink as well you know where I am going with this one. There are endless possiblities.

The world in Oblivion is so beautiful, you will be constantly stopping and think "wow" more than playing the game. Plus the fact that the game is so freelance that you can not even touch the main storyline missions for hours apound hours. Join a guild, go through the forest and gathere precious Ninroots, go exploring through dungeons slaying hundreds of zombies, skeletons, goblins, vampires, ghosts ect: Just walking through town talking to people can get you sent on a mission as all the NPC's in this game have different stories or charecteristics.

Oblivion though isnt perfect either. It has a couple bugs and loading times that can hassle the gameplay. Walking though the forest exploring for new caves can be a pain in the ass as the game will have to constantly load the background as your walking, granted it doesnt send you into a loading screen but it makes the game a bit glichy. One thing personally that i didnt care about most of the missions is the fact that almost every mission you have to go into some cave or dungeon. To me it gets a lil bit repetitive, as that is pretty much the layout for 90% of the missions in this game, you talk find this dungeon, go in it, kill, kill kill, grab sumthing or save someone then you get to kill, kill ,kill, fast travel, talk, rinse and repeat.

This game isnt perfect but still is a hell of a game to play. Most definetly worht 60 dollars of your hard earned money. It has some revolutionary elements in it but it still again isnt the perfect game. I reccomend this for everyone as I hate RPG's yet i played this game 2 days straight, and lost my gf in the process but screw that *****.
