Oblivion scores 10/10 at Boomtown

Boomtown has joined the elite group of site claiming that Oblivion is perfect. Like totally.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a triumph of modern adventure gaming. To call it a role playing game is perhaps too limiting, it implies too much about stats and rolling D20s rather than getting stuck into the action.​
Then maybe we shouldn't call it a role-playing game. Just a thought.

Oblivion is an epic adventure, a milestone in gaming and a rare treat. That a game so complex and unashamedly hardcore has garnered so much attention from the mainstream gamers is a signal to many that dumbing-down and blinging-up everything isn’t always the path to success.
Unashamedly. Yep, that describes this paragraph very nicely.

Here we have a game that is intelligent and uncompromising yet wonderfully easy to get involved with and enjoy. Yes there are problems with the levelling system, without these issues we’d be in danger of this actually being the proverbial perfect game. Perfection or not, Bethesda has created a milestone in gaming with Oblivion, a free-form adventure of such a high quality that I cannot do anything but offer our highest score. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is not perfect, but it’s the best game in town, avoid it at your peril.​
So, the game is clearly not perfect, but it gets the perfect score. Makes sense.
