Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Bethesda's usual expansive gameplay keeps the game going smoothly, though compartmentalized storylines can sometimes get confusing.

Graphics:

 Bethesda pushes the limits, as always.

Sound and Music:

The voice acting varies from NPC to NPC, and the looped music can eventually get annoying... but come back a day later, and it'll seem fresh again.

Difficulty:

Strategy guides on character creation are a big help - it's possible to create a powerful, or non-powerful, character in the game and even possible to ruin a character with faulty leveling.

Controls and Interface:

PC interfaces have been improved by mod makers, and these are advised: on the Xbox360 side, while it takes a bit of getting used to, the interface is well laid out and becomes intuitive.

Overall:

Oblivion's one that should be in any gamer's collection.
