More Oblivion reviews
Review - posted by Spazmo on Thu 27 April 2006, 18:11:47Tags: Bethesda Softworks; The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
LoadedInc and Armchair General have both posted reviews (one and two) of that one game you may have heard of, the popular with the swords and trees and so on. The first rates it 9.6/10 and the second 91./10. Here's some vile hyperbole from the Armchair General review because the LoadedInc one is pretty bland.
This is likely the most difficult game Iâ€™ve had to review. Not because it was hard to get a grasp of the game or how I felt about it but because every time that I thought about starting in on writing the review I had this urge to go and play â€œjust a tiny bit moreâ€ to get a â€œbetter feelâ€ for the game. Six hours later, Iâ€™d have to take care of other business rather than write the review. Even now Iâ€™m wishing I had uninstalled the game just so I could get through this. Or maybe all those people gathering in the living room are finally here to give me the intervention I so desperately need to get away from my keyboard.Here, at last, is a plausible theory for the success of the TES games: chronic addiction.
