The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, the follow up to The Elder Scrolls: The Burning Crusade is the follow up to one of the most successful RPG games of all time. In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, players once again find themselves in the dark world of Tamriel, where the civil war has never ended and the threat of darkness once again looms. If you're looking for an RPG game with a huge number of different choices for you to make, then The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the game for you.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion does not reinvent the wheel like previous games in the series did, but it does make significant improvements over the previous games as well. For example, the combat system is much more realistic and easier to handle, as well as providing you with a more interesting storyline that the previous games failed to live up too. The graphics are also very nice and really bring life to the game play, although a lot of the scenery and environments were not enhanced when The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was released.
One thing that I didn't like about this game though is that it's all in a single player mode. Sure, you have your avatar, but it doesn't feel like you got any of your friends or family members in on the action like they would in a RPG like Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter. This is one of the biggest drawbacks of the game, but it's something that I can overlook because the game play itself is so enjoyable. The combat is like a mix of the old style grid-based battle system, as well as modern turn-based battles. The game also doesn't have a lot of interesting characters to meet, but it's still one of the better games in the series.
