Attack of the Show says Oblivion "not worth $60"

G4TV have a quick video review of Oblivion. They spent all of fifty minutes (IE: Not long at all) looking at the 360 version but hey, seeing as both versions of the game are identical (including that shoddy interface), here's their final verdict anyway:

Fighting "crazy killer crabs" is one of the best parts of the whole game, along with fighting their rat cousins but we have to say it's a pass because:
  • There's a lack of any real connection with your character
  • A persistent next-gen world should not "chug"
  • ... nor should it have random load hits
  • 3rd person mode feels like an after-thought
  • Combat is not all that fulfilling and you'll be doing it for most of the game
They conclude by saying it's simply "not a must have title. $30 game? I'm sold but put the $60 in your pocket and wait for it to come down in price".

You can watch the summary for yourself here.

Thanks aweigh!
