New Zealand loves Oblivion

Varsity, a New Zealand site, has posted an overly enthusiastic drug-induced Oblivion review.

The best thing is the scope of what you can do and what kind of character you can be. There are three main streams of guild you can join. Fighter/Mage/Thief. There are many factions and groups that you could join which can advance your character in any number of dimensions. The best thing is that YOU choose. Do I want to be good, evil, or indifferent? Help the poor? Kill the poor? Steal from the poor? Be the poor? The variations are endless. Personally, I have played with a Nord Warrior and a Breton Mage. Both very different, but I could have always gone the way of a battlemage to get the best of both worlds. This gives the game unparallelled longevity for a story-only game as opposed to other Xbox Live enabled titles. Everything you do, even the main story, will change depending on your character – i.e. HOW you do it. You could easily have this game in your collection for years and never play all the character possibilities.

Even with this taken into consideration, I have to give the game a kick arse rating. It’s basically a game I can keep going back to as long as I have this console. There will be many characters I would like to test out after this one (Thieves etc) and I expect there is no way that my current character will manage to do all the side plots as well.

RPG people, this is a must buy. Everyone else, check it out. It’s well worth it.
