I have never played Oblivion but have spent hours playing Fallout 3 and some very tortuous hours playing Fallout: New Vegas.
My other half started playing on the Xbox 360 but decided he wanted it on PC so I got the chance to give it a go and see how 'addictive' it really has been hyped up to being.
The beginning of the game is a little slow going and I was itching to get into the game. Whether this was down to having watched the opening about 5 times before as my bf created character after character I cannot say but once the game got going I began to enjoy it.
I've been enjoying learning the skills and crafts and like the little touches regarding levelling up. The only niggle I have so far is the roaming animals that can one shot kill me before I can even think of how to defend myself. it's gotten so bad that I am concentrating on side missions instead of the main storyline as I feel too weak to attempt them without getting crazy angry and turning the machine off.
I'm hoping that in a few levels time I will be able to advance a bit more so will start to enjoy it more than role playing and exploring my surroundings which look great. I've only encountered a few odd glitches, companions teleporting from one area to another and some animals floating away off screen after being killed.
Love the music though. That alone is keeping me going...
