... because we can't get enough Oblivion reviews

Here are three more Oblivion reviews for those of you who just haven't read enough of them yet. First up is Driver Heaven with their take:

Hype can be a negative in the video game industry, many games have become major sellers even if they are terrible, all thanks to their marketing campaigns. Enter the Matrix is a very good example and the same can be said about Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness which was complete garbage but still, thanks to the hype, was a respectable seller.

This brings me to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, a new sequel to the very successful Morrowind series from Bethesda Softworks on PC and lately, this new Elder Scrolls has been getting monumental amounts of hype.​
Don't worry, it's all downhill from there with the game scoring a final of 97/100. Moving on though, <a href="">Game Industry News[/url] have their look:

Wow. Where do I begin to describe how amazing Oblivion is? Should I talk about the eye-popping visuals and fully-3D world that is light years beyond anything anyone has ever seen on a computer? Should I talk about the depth of the plot that would rival a full-length feature film or even, gasp, a great literary work? Or should I talk about how darn smart the AI in the game is and how you can actually follow people around in their daily schedule as they go to their jobs, head over to the tavern for a drink with friends or turn in for the night after locking up their bedroom doors?​
Yep. They give it "A perfect 5 gems"!!!11oneonetwo. Finally though, here's one from Lan Game Review. Now I know what you're thinking "He saved the best til last". Unfortunately, you'd be wrong:

For the most part these are well done, with the exception being the speech craft mini-game which gets repetitive uninteresting rather quickly. But that’s about the only uninteresting thing in the game. You will never run out of things to do in this game. Period.

Though it doesn’t deviate far from the path set by its predecessors, Oblivion does take the formula and refines it into an art. This is a must have game for any X-box 360 owner, RPG fan or not.​
Oblivion: It's not a game, it's art!
