1UP.com has posted a preview of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion which gives a first look at the game after twenty hours of play time.
About 20 hours into The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and this sucker is just getting started. Where most videogames would be wrapping things up, I’m just starting to get a handle on the story and my character. And that’s just fine. No, that’s just great.
Because Oblivion is a game with an embarrassment of riches (including a beefy 50 achievements to earn in the Xbox 360 version). The world is enormous and packed with things to do, the use-based character development and skill system is insanely rich and full of choices, and there are more core quests, side quests, miniquests, and simple oddball things to do than in any 10 games combined.
I am not into long RPG’s, and so I don’t think this game is for me, but if you want to spend hundreds of hours working on a character, you might want to snatch a copy as soon as it hits store shelves, as I have a feeling it is going to sell quickly.
