Creepy's Journal: Oblivion... underwhelmed?

Journal by Creepy

Am I the only one that is underwhelmed by Oblivion?

The game is fairly pretty on my high end GPU (shadows are seriously broken - the backface shows), but it plays like Morrowind and you have to maximize your skills to actually play it at any reasonable difficulty, unlike Morrowind, which I find pretty lame. By the time I figured that out, I was already 15 hours into the game and not willing to restart, so I had to seriously drop the difficulty slider. To make matters worse, a good sneaky character does ok in 1 on 1 non-scripted situations, but when you get 2 or 3 or 4 on 1 situations, well, you can't backstab them all and you get pummeled in light armor. At this point, the game seems to be great for all out fighters and all out mages, but mixed classes will have a tough time unless you specifically target three skills each level and don't touch any others (which is hard to do because walk is so slow that I always have run on and gain acrobatics). Anyhow, enough venting - think I'll program on my own game for a while.
