IGN's First Impressions of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
IGN has put up their first impressions of the retail version of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for both the Xbox 360 and the PC.
Overall they seem positive, however the game does have a few quirks. Apparently the Xbox 360 version has a bit longer load times than its PC counterpart, as well as some texture pop-in. The PC has some texture pop-in as well, but mainly in forest areas. The third person view is also not so great, especially in combat, however this was also the case with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
If you're interested in the game, give the impressions a read, as aside from a few minor issues, the game is sounding quite promising. Plus it has Patrick Stewart as the voice of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, and everyone likes Capt. Picard.
