We have just posted another Two-Cent review. Mark Fossen chimes in with his take on Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for the Xbox 360.
"In general, the people that read Operation Sports are sports gamers. Many of them weigh the "sports" far over the "gaming", and see their consoles primarily as virtual gridiron (or hardwood or diamond). They love sports, and beyond the borders of sports games are undiscovered lands where only "geeks" may tread. If they ever do step outside the confines of sport, it is to play manly games of manly things: military shooters or Grand Theft Auto.
If you're one of these gamers and you own a 360, let me tell you this: come on in ... the water's fine, and hardly geeky at all. I'm a few hours into Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and if you deny yourself this gaming experience because of it's fantasy setting, you are doing yourself a great disservice. If you need to, fool yourself into calling it Grand Theft Auto: Middle Earth. That's what it really is: open-ended gameplay where you can do what you want, when you want, how you want."
