PS3’s Oblivion: Not so Impressed | PS3Blog.net
I’ve been doing a lot of reading about Oblivion, and the general consensus is that this is a fantastic game that’s lot of fun, though it does have a couple bugs. As well, people suggest that this is one of the best games available for the PS3, and that even people who aren’t RPG’ers would enjoy it.
I rented it on Friday and have been playing it every day since. And you know what? I just can’t get into it. I closed my first Oblivion portal and now my task is to help some guard clear some city of bad guys. Which I find quite boring. These puny little bad guys just toss fire at you and attack when close enough. A couple swings of the sword and they’re dead. Rinse and repeat. And repeat. And repeat. Untold Legends follows the same basic formula but for some reason I get a much bigger kick out of UL than I do out of the big “O”.
I’ll be trying the game again tonight to see if it picks up steam any. But I’m not holding out much hope. On Wednesday I’ll return the game to Rogers, and I don’t think I’ll ever play it again.
