In the OXM, they review this beast of an RPG and give it a 9.5/10. The magazine states that the only downside to this game, the reason it didn't get a 10/10, is because of fact that it's too addicting. Can you believe that?

I reserved this game last month and it's coming out on the 21st. Meaning; I wont be on here very much for a few days.

After reading review, I got a few questions answered:

Yes, you can make your own class and skills.
Yes; you can craft your own spells
Yes; you can kill anyone and take their home.

I'll try to scan the awesome pics from the review later.

I scanned page 1 and 2 of the review but the file size is huge. Click below and then it'll be a quick download (It'll say "Click Here To Download" at the bottom) and you can view them.

Probably a little bias

What the review? You don't think it deserves a 9.5? Christ, it deserves a 9.5 just for the graphics.

Do you consider every review that has gotten a 9.5 to be biased, too?

When it's an Xbox(360) exclusive game being reviewed by an Xbox magazine before it's even out for us to play - yeah, I could possibly see bias.

They went to Bethesda's Studios right as the game was finished. They just got dibs on the exclusive review. Tons of magazines do this with games. ^o)

LOL, I doubt it.

You're a prisoner, King needs to escape, comes through your cell, they let you tag along, you need to find some super warrior.

Sounds cliched, but I could care less. I'll be running around the forests forever.

Yay! Oblivion runs very smoothly even on my PC. Only had to reduce some of the detail settings. Still looks gorgeous tho.

Radeon 9700 Pro, AMD XP 2400+, 1gig ram in case someone needs a reference point.

The interface feels a bit clunky, but otherwise the game seems to be great. (based on the 10 minutes I've tested the game for ^o))

I still agree with deckzone. I mean Playstation does this with their games sometimes too. I mean Xbox reviewing their own games that are expected to be good...yeah, I could possibly see bias as well.

I said possibly. But if was bias, I wouldn't be too surprised.
