Storyline

The story begins with the player's character in prison in The Imperial City. Emperor Uriel Septim VII, accompanied by his bodyguards, is fleeing from assassins who have killed his sons. By chance, Septim's escape route goes through the player's cell and you are able to follow them and escape yourself. During the escape, the Emperor tells you that he has seen you in his dreams and gives you The Amulet of Kings, an important heirloom. He tells you to find the monk Jauffre and give him the Amulet. The emperor is then assassinated. After finding Jauffre, you are told that Septim had an illegitimate son named Martin who is working as a monk in the city of Kvatch. As the only remaining heir to the throne, Martin must use the Amulet to light the Dragonfires that protect Cyrodiil from Daedra, inhabitants of the Daedric realm of Oblivion. Upon reaching Kvatch, you find that it is under attack by the Deadra. You enter the Oblivion gate, a portal between Tamriel and Oblivion, and remove the ... Written by Razor

Trivia

Patrick Stewart, a veteran of numerous Shakespeare productions, quotes Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar' several times in character as Emperor Uriel Septim. See more »

Goofs

When the "Rumors" dialog subject is selected from a female Dunmer, the character will talk about a break-in at the palace. The spoken dialog matches the subtitles until the end, then the actress is heard to say "Wait, let me try that again," and the entire dialog is repeated, but there are no accompanying subtitles and the character avatar is not animated as if speaking.

Quotes

[first lines]
Emperor Uriel Septim VII: I was born 87 years ago. For 65 years I've ruled as Tamriel's emperor, but for all these years, I've never been the ruler of my own dreams. I have seen the gates of Oblivion, beyond which no waking eye may see. Behold, in darkness, a doom sweeps the land. This is the 27th of Last Seed, the year of Akatosh, 433. These are the closing days of the third era, and the final hours of my life.

Possibly The King Of Games
13 April 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

When I first heard of the game oblivion I thought it was another one of these RPGs that gave itself more credit than what it was worth, a cheap copy of morrowind (which I never found exactly "fun" before) but when I heard it was exclusively for xbox 360 and PC, the two most graphically enhanced consoles up to now, I got myself a copy and I didn't regret it. The PS3 version is equally good but you'd think in a years time there would be something extra aside from a free download implanted in the disc. Overall you'll prefer the 360 version. The graphics are by far the top of the xbox class and gameplay and lifespan are in a way dangerously addicting. WARNING-you may loose your social life at the first minute of gameplaying. The flaws and bugs sometimes occur such as encountering invisible animals and in-game freezing, which are annoying and taunting, you may also encounter some quest flaws such as journal pop ups that are suppose to happen in order for you to progress further in a mission. The voice acting is something to be admired, and from time to time you will feel cyrodill to be a real place in its amazing landscape. The main quest is dramatic and epic but lasts no longer from 2 to 4 hours but there are many faction and city quests to go through until you can officially say I bet the game. Through the experience of playing oblivion you will realize there are two types of video games; typical games that have movie spin-offs and sports franchises... And games that drag you into its amazing story and graphics such as halo 2 and oblivion. If you overlook some minor bugs that you'll more than likely run into you'll never be able to walk outside your front door again because you'll be too busy sitting on your ass playing and drooling at the amazing features and experiences oblivion has to offer. 10/10 all the way!!!
