My Son's been desperate for this for months and it's at the top of his birthday / christmas list (both in December). Adverts for it are amazing.
Loved Arena, Daggerfall and Morrowind but never got round to playing Oblivion. Will be interested in knowing if this is worthwhile investing my life in
Not sure if I mucked up my character in Oblivion, but as the mobs did lv with me, I could never kill them without constantly zoning in/out or running lots (think I was magey type) gave up, and never played it again, shame as it seemed good apart from the combat!
it wasnt the mobs levelling in oblivion that fucked it.... not at all.... they just matched to be 'level appropriate' - which is fine. it was the character levelling that screwed it. It meant that the easiest way to win fights easily is to NOT be a combat character :/ have all your class skills (or whatever they were called, the 7 you pick that level faster and affect your level) be skills you'll never use, and keep them at level 1. then level up your ocmbat skills. enemies will still be based on you being level 1, while your actual combat skills are equivalent to a level 50 or whatever. very silly system, imo.
Is the combat still utter shite (and broken)? You know the awful kitting crap - with Dumb AI that is so easy to abuse. Then midway though the game you suddenly become all powerful and everything dies in seconds!
