Oblivion: 3 images

Hallelujah! Bethesda finally released three new images of its highly anticipated RPG, The Elders Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Needless to say, it's simply beautiful.

Way too much bloom on that poor guy's face :D
Nevertheless, lovely environments. Looking forward to this one.

water doesn't look so good, but everything else looks great

Yeah, as usual with Bethesda, the face looks a bit off. But except for this, it's gorgeous IMO.

looking at these screens i dont see what all the hype is about, the enviroment is average at best and that guy looks like dale winton or david dickinson with shabby looking hair.

i've seen better screens of the game.

I agree.

Nothing special about this game. Not next-gen at all.

Some people will never be satisfied....

Please - the face looks great. I'm sure he's standing right next to a lamp or something - thus the weird bloom effect.

Ultimately though, this game is not all about the graphics.

It's Elderscrolls. It's about gameplay, not graphics. What is next gen to you people anyways? Put this next to any XBox, PS2, or Gamecube game and tell me that it doesn't hold up.

Can't wait to get my hands on it.

As with the majority of games, screenshots do not do it justice. It needs to be seen in motion before you can judge.

How can you judge how water looks from a static screen?
Commented on 2006-02-17 03:45:46
I can't believe it! People are still complaining! The Oblivion gameplay (Alone) definitively worth the next-gen mention. And with graphics that beatiful for a such giant sand box... . If that's not next-gen I wonder what the hell next-gen means!

Stupid Bethesda releasind horrible shots, all three of them are really bad, I know they are just misleading though.
Commented on 2006-02-17 03:52:00
It's surpising how many people take screenshots regardless if 720p or not, as the definative look of the final game.

Can this game be played from a 3rd person perspective? I'm not too keen on 1st person.

Yes, but I'd think this game plays better on first, but yeah it's there for people like you.

Hmmm, I must say those are the worst screens I've seen so far from the game....not that they are ugly, far from it of course, but they lack the jaw-drop-effect most of the previously released shots had. Anyway, not much longer and the speculating will end i guess.
Commented on 2006-02-17 04:18:20
WHY!!?????

Why do you do this to us...me wants this game now!!!!!!!!
Commented on 2006-02-17 04:32:21
I have to agree that they're not that impressive. Definitely not like what was shown way back when. Though I think that guy's face looks fine; very realistic.

Looking at those shots just doesn't seem to jibe with the quotes from all the "big" game mags in their print ad saying "quite simply, the best looking game I've ever seen" and "jaw-dropping", etc. Textures look bad, water looks bad, terrain looks flat and angular, etc.

Probably still a sweet game. They should definitely thank god for that tree "growing" middleware, because at this point the forests are far and away the best looking part of the game.

    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (6 minutes ago)

    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (9 Hours ago)
