The best RPG ever made

Review - posted by Vault Dweller on Sat 4 August 2007, 02:48:07

Tags: Bethesda Softworks; Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

GamePlanet, a New Zealand gaming site, has decided to join the civilized society by acknowledging the awesomeness of the best RPG ever made.

The Elder Scrolls series is the most popular set of solo role playing games ever developed. ... The release of the PS3 now means that RPG fans on the PlayStation can now experience the undisputed king of role playing games.
A promising beginning.

The world of Oblivion is a living, breathing world. ... The AI hidden within the game is one of the best ever developed for a RPG game. Kill someone in the street, and you will be chased down; stealing will result in a time in prison (unless you bribe the sentry). Importantly, though, you need to realise it's not all about you. These AI driven people interact with each other as well. There are stories of players witnessing a computer controlled thief being pursued through the town by the sentries in a random AI event. It's stunning how alive the towns and cities feel because of this.
Bethesda PR department strikes again!

As you explore you will soon find factions and guilds abound. Choosing a guild will lead you to new and guild specific quests while at the same time placing you at odds* with some of the other guilds.
* vivid imagination required
