The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Review, gameplay

In mid-2002, when analyzing the prequel to this Oblivion, we already noted how expected the title was among lovers of role-playing video games. Merrowing promised to bring these players closer to the dream of the genre: a living world, where the adventure was created by the player as he went. Indeed, that game brought that dream closer, but only that, closer. The baton was picked up by massive online role-playing video games, where it is much more feasible since it is, after all, a world populated by people. But Bethesda Soft works didn’t throw in the towel. As we said at the time, they wanted to create a great single player RPG before everything went online. And they got it; Borrowing transcended a genre whose star figures belonged to the network game, and earned a reputation as a broad, deep, diverse and very long-lived product. It was also a fairly extensible game, around which a large community of add-on creators was formed, in addition to official expansions. So much so that even today many people play Borrowing. What prevented Bethesda back then from achieving the dream of the genre? Technical limitations above all, and details that derived from these. Already in its day it was an enormously demanding title in that regard. Almost four years after that analysis, we have hardware capable of filing those details. Do they really make a difference?

The Elder Scrolls IV

As a game of the saga that boasts, in Oblivion we start prisoners. The Emperor himself (voiced by actor Patrick Stewart) pays us a visit, as he has seen us in our dreams. We follow him out but unknown attackers finish him off. During the process we created our character in a similar way to how we did it in Morrowind, with the exception that in Oblivion we have much more physical freedom, we can model every last one of the facial features, in a very similar way to Fight Night Round 3 of AE.

The beginning of something bigger

Before I begin I will say that I understand that many people like oblivion since it is one of the games that catapulted the saga of The elder scrolls to fame, however I must say that the game left a bitter taste in my mouth.

GRAPHICS: currently very backwards and technically leaves a lot to be desired. Still has its charm.

GAMEPLAY: very uncomfortable in all aspects, both when exploring and the combats are truly uncomfortable and the passage of time shows it.

INNOVATION: it is clear that this is the section in which the game shines the most since this game has some very good original ideas for the time it was made.


I’m going to say something that will shock many people, but Skyrim simply surpassed Oblivion and by far… I think the best way to give my opinion is through a comparison (and for the record that I’m not an oblivion hater): I played to both games in the saga and I think I spent 300 hours on skyrim and 80 on oblivion and it turns out that although oblivion was innovative, it had a lot of flaws: its world was not credible and it was dead, the NPCs had no charisma nor any life, its landscapes were monotonous as were its missions in fact, the guild missions (which were supposed to be the best) were boring and soporific as well as meaningless and what to say about its horrible system of levels / skills in addition to mediocre setting. But that changed when skyrim came along. Regardless of who may, skyrim is the logical evolution of oblivion “why?” Simply because skyrim takes everything that oblivion had, it improves it and also adds a multitude of new things and a living world in which you can spend hours and hours without getting tired in an epic game, something that oblivion was not. The only thing that oblivion had capable of matching skyrim was its soundtrack.

In summary, oblivion is a clear example that the old does not have to be better than the new. That is why I advise all the people who are going to start in this saga not to waste time playing a game that is only what it is thanks to a community of insufferable fanboys. It is best to play skyrim or morrowind directly. And to the fanboys I tell you not to fool yourselves because deep down you know that oblivion is no longer what it was and has nothing to do with respect to current RPGs. That’s why instead of throwing shit at skyrim, I encourage you to try it or replay it since with time you will see how superior it is to oblivion. Says a veteran in this saga.

The Great Masterpiece of the successful and impressive Oblivion

After much more than 1,000 hours of play, I can say that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a Supreme Authentic Masterpiece, Unmatched, Unsurpassed, Legendary, Impressive, Extremely good, almost Perfect, it is Excellent, offers many hours, Ayleid ruins , camps, dungeons, caves, secondary missions, guilds, etc. Oblivion, despite being repetitive in places, continues to engage the fictional world, great setting, an epic ending, etc. Graphics despite having bad, but acceptable graphics for this time, at the time they were impressive.
Secondary Missions: one of the best things in the game, the secondary missions are unique, unrepeatable, well worked, perfect, they deserve a 10.
Guilds: perfect, unmatched, also with very well worked missions, excellent, impressive, exciting, and very good, I give them a 10.
Gameplay: Great gameplay, with 21 special abilities, with a huge variety of spells, weapons, armor, enchantments, a better journal than Morrowind's, a huge variety of enemies, you can create spells, you can jump very high, run on water, run very fast , jump to enormous distances only if you are trained in Athletics and Acrobatics, you can paralyze, knock down, disarm, and make more power attacks with daggers, axes, swords, greatswords, hammers, hands, bow, etc, and the enemies will also give you They can do them, I give it a 9.8.
Autolevel and difficulty: many complain about Oblivion's autolevel, since at first you can enter many, caves, ruins, dungeons, forts, camps, etc, but after level 18, the game becomes much more difficult, even EVERYONE, even a bandit can become a Master of ALL skills, and they can bring Ebony, Daedric, Crystal Armor, and Crystal, Daedric, Ebony Weapons, etc. even sometimes enchanted, I give it a 7.5 at first, but a 10 later.
Main Plot: I am not going to reveal anything about the main plot, but in Oblivion they showed you the world in crisis, chaos and destruction, the Oblivion portals are opening and you are the only one who can save the world from destruction, the end It's epic, legendary, really cool, I give it a 9.5 and in the end I give it a 10.
Setting: The infinite world of Cyrodiil offers so many possibilities, infinite possibilities, Oblivion plans are really, impressive, unique, demonic, gloomy, devilish, highly worked, incredible, and desolate, and the world of Cyrodiil province has several places , which are swamps, (to the south), snow and tundra (to the north), forests and a lot of vegetation, flora and fauna, (70% of Cyrodiil), and more places, which can seem very beautiful and even more when it rains , the sounds of thunder, realistic forests, huge lakes, the huge medieval cities, especially the Imperial City, they all have different culture and history, I give it a 10.
Expansions: Shivering Isles, which is the best Oblivion expansion, is really impressive, almost a second game, with a much less huge mapping, but with an alien and strange appearance, the trembling islands are from the Daedric Prince Sheogorath, the prince of madness and the illogical, but I will not reveal anything about the main plot or that of Knights of the Nine, Shivering Isles is for me, the BEST expansion of the saga, the most worked, epic, exciting, very long, etc, I give it a 10 to Shivering Isles, and Knights of the Nine I give it a 9.5.
The game is real: everything important that you do in the game appears in the newspaper, there are rumors, people who admire you, fear you, hate you, etc. In addition, they build a very statue in your honor when you save Bruma from the Daedra .

Virtual world

Great game, huge world to explore with many missions, good graphics although for my taste it develops a little slow and regular combat. Good investment for those who want many hours of play although for me it lacks some emotion. Advancing is easy and there are things that are not understood, sometimes the soldiers arrest you for no reason etc... Driving the horse it's almost better to walk, the faces of the characters all look the same. Well the truth is that even in such a big game it is easy to find fault with it.
I bought it for 9 leuros, that is, a bargain price for everything it offers. Now there are better games like its sequel Skyrim or the incomparable Dark Souls, but in its day it was the best and for the price it now has, it's worth it.

The game of the year.

It is the best role-playing game I have ever played. What I think is best is that you can choose between ten races, and on top of that they are super cool except for some that are disgusting, I mainly chose the orc, no wonder there is a game of the year edition in which they give you some downloadable islands. The bad thing is that the map is big, it takes a long time to get there and if you steal a horse the guard will arrest you or kill you. What's cool is that it happens at night and that you can undress the people, that's funny, you can also take weapons from them. The enemies are very original and there are many cities.

Years after its premiere.

Oblivion is one of the most important releases in the world of RPG, which perhaps was not valued as groundbreaking as its predecessor Morrowind was and the much more massive phenomenon that has been the great Skyrim, Oblivion was in the middle in massiveness but not in quality. Clearly its years are weighing on graphics, which are still good, and on mechanics that were improved in Skyrim.
Skyrim in my opinion is much more accessible than Oblivion, it's like... simpler to play and get into the world, but that doesn't make Oblivion a bad game... quite the opposite, it makes it an Elder Scroll in my opinion For more hardcore players of RPG's and of this saga in particular. The main story is great, even more interesting than that of Skyrim in my opinion, it makes you want to follow it and obviously it has what makes this saga the best RPG's in the world of video games that are freedom of action, the living world and the immersion is the fantastic world of the Elder Scrolls, that every time they come out, they set the standard for how to make a good game.
The Elder Scrolls V

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

Welcome Dragonborn , this is Skyrim …see those huge flying lizards? Your duty is to end the great threat that looms against Skyrim . He sees and fulfills your destiny with courage Well, you can also do a little whatever you want… How about GGs my name is Clawd and this is Gamer Generation , this time I would like to talk about one of the titans in making you waste your time and one of the videogames with the most relaunches in video game history, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim .Well, what does the story of Skyrim tell us? The story places us in the middle of a civil war between the imperials and the storm cloaks, you have been caught by the imperials trying to cross the border and despite being innocent you are sentenced to be beheaded, which would have been a disgrace except for a huge dragon that comes to light things up a bit, in the confusion you manage to escape and your adventure begins.

The Elder Scrolls V

The gameplay is based on what was seen in Fallout 3 , a first-person exploration and adventure game with a quite addictive combat system. I must say that, despite having problems, it’s a lot of fun. The combat system is quite extensive with various types of weapons and magic, and best of all, all your skills level up with use, it’s just like real life! only better because you don’t even have to get up from your seat. Technologically I must say that Skyrim suffers from quite obvious problems, the game has suffered from a huge number of bugs and catastrophic failures, the classic Bethesda style , as well as there are small texture failures, there are also moments in which when killing an enemy his body it can shoot comically all over the place and more serious failures such as the game crashing or constant lag if it’s the PS3 version.

Aesthetically the game looks spectacular in terms of landscapes, the Skyrim map is vast and invites you to get lost in its wide expanses of land, on the other hand the NPCs don’t look quite right, they are not a catastrophe but they do take a bit out of you of the experience, especially for its robotic movements. Regarding the music, this game has a great quality, especially in its great piece that sounds epic and with a lot of power, in a matter of sound effects, the roars of the dragons, the steps of the giants and mammoths, the clashing of swords clashing and magical lightning flying, without a doubt quite a spectacle. In conclusion, Skyrim, despite its problems, is an experience that you cannot miss, it is on all currently existing consoles and the PC, you have no excuse not to play it, let yourself be carried away by this addictive game and discover how to use the violent Dragon language Fuss-Ro-Dah!!

Anyway, GG’s, I hope you liked this review of one of the games I’ve played the most times in a row, what other time-stealing games have you tried? Leave it to me in the comments, I’m Clawed and like you I’m part of a generation that loves video games, a Gamer Generation , see you next week, Bye. The best game ever without a doubt This game transports you to a world of the middle Ages, full of fascinating creatures such as dragons, trolls, mammoths, giants, drags. Its open world and its setting make this title the best open world RPG game of all time. Speaking of its history, it may become tedious at certain points if you’re not used to this type of game, but it’s really worth it.


A game in capital letters, and that ensures hundreds and hundreds of hours of play, to the point that I haven't finished it and I'm sorry until I uninstall it and delete the saved games. Gigantic settings, hundreds of characters, dragons, magic, swords, and a story that changes as you position yourself on one side or another. Graphically it's pretty good, especially considering the year it came out, a decade ago. The music is very good and perfect for the game, and the gameplay is good, being able to choose even between two weapons in combat gives versatility. It just takes time to get through it, quite a bit. Sometimes I have found some bugs.

Skyrim is a masterpiece.

A masterpiece and one of my favorite games from years ago. For the simple reason for what it was and what it is (community mods) the truth is that it is very entertaining to walk around the entire map and follow the story in addition to the large number of community mods that are crazy The truth is that it is a 10/10 game with obviously its bugs, failures, crashes but what matters is its content, not its failures.

A world to get lost in

As negative points I will say that the movements of the characters look very stiff, the facial gestures are not very far, although in the final result they comply. The combat system is simple, although it is also true that you have options to face each battle, you can use stealth, blows, magic, with the bow, with spells, with several at the same time. This is a role-playing game with capital words, although there is a story and missions you have complete freedom to do what you want and to build the character you want, to start with the mission you want and explore the world with total freedom.
The world of Skyrim is beautiful, you have areas of all colors, snowy areas, more spring areas and with the possibility of adding graphic mods things improve even more, the music is delightful, one of the best it has. It is true that sometimes it becomes repetitive and that the main story is fine, it complies, but it is not the main thing, the best thing about this game is the freedom it gives you, building your character, getting lost in that world and know him. As a final note, a little more variety of enemies and locations is missing, there are some dungeons that do not stop repeating themselves throughout the game and the inclusion of dragons, although successful, tires a bit in the long run. Despite everything I've said, this game is a delight if you like medieval fantasy role-playing games.

Dragon blood

The fifth part of The Elder Scrolls saga, Skyrim is a world very well set in the Norse Viking style, it is gigantic and full of details. It is a fantasy-filled first-person action-adventure game. With many RPG elements, skill tree, many weapons and classes. In general, it has a lot of content of all kinds and good progression. There are skill trees, but the progression is based on what the player does, if you use the bow a lot you will improve as an archer, Fallout New Vegas has this system for example, it seems very good and realistic in a certain way.
There are many quests, whether for the main plot, side quests or faction quests. The factions have good quests and storylines, many of them affecting the world and altering the other factions. Despite having so much variety and content, the combat system is quite bad, it is simply based on hitting and hitting until the enemy is knocked down, and yes, you can cover yourself with a shield or you can also use bows and magic to change a bit, but you end up repeating the same thing over and over again. It feels like a combat system without original ideas and that something boring can be done.
The freedom that the game gives is nice, and simply dedicating yourself to exploring the world and getting things, exploration and curiosity are rewarded. Too bad that although the map is detailed and interesting, many areas are repeated, especially the dungeons. The graphics perhaps leave a bit to be desired but they still look good. Skyrim also stands out in the community of him. Like many other Steam games, the Workshop supposes double hours of extra and quality content, in fact I would dare to say that Skyrim is one of the most active in that sense. Lots of extra content of all kinds. In conclusion it is a game of enormous proportions, a lot of fun and in short a great adventure. The difficulty can sometimes be somewhat shaky, being either very easy or very hard. It guarantees hundreds of hours of a lot of content where there is always something to do and things to discover.
