Trivia

There are numerous references between all the Elderscroll games, including references forwards (Morrowind has books and characters who talk about Oblivion, etc). In addition, The Imperial Arena is based on the original concept of Elder Scrolls: Arena complete with posters based on the box art from the game. There are also several characters and items that reoccur between the games. For instance the blade Umbra makes an appearance in both Morrowind and Oblivion possessing two different characters.

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.

Best RPG ever made...
8 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game is the reason gamers like me don't get much sleep. It's basically your everyday fantasy RPG (Role Playing Game) set in a world full of demons, monsters, knights, bandits, goblins, and more. That's where the similarity ends. The game is based in a mythical world that's just plain massive. It's basically a country with several cities and towns. The mapping is spectacular, with no two areas alike (swamps, mountains, gaping forests, snow covered lands, lakes, rivers), the towns have unique architecture, and not to mention the developers show how the 360's graphics engine can make for some very realistic water effects. Everything in this game is superb, right down to the sound (not to mention Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart lend their voices). It wasn't enough to knock it down a point, but I did find the character creation a bit of a challenge, along with some of the people in the game, too many of them look old and worn out. Other than that, this game hit every mark in my book... it allows for complete control of your character, you can be a mage (magic) or a warrior, or both. You can actually choose your path. Follow the main quest first and beat the main story line, or follow some side quests and get your character to a more respectable level (which I recommend)? I truly believe out of any non-MMORPG out there this has one of the biggest replay value factors ever, not to mention hours upon hours of gameplay and entertainment (some quests require you to travel great distances to complete). The gameplay is fantastic, the selection of tools, weapons, and other items is magnificent, and the graphics are, for lack of a better word, gorgeous. This game, so far, is the only RPG that comes very close to real life. I think the only thing that makes it different from real life is that the real world has no reset button. This is a must have, must play, must get addicted game. Like great literature, this you cannot put down until it's done!
