Default ES4: Knights of the Nine - Review @ Eurogamer

November 28th, 2006, 13:05
Eurogamer has served up a short review of Bethsoft's latest Oblivion addon, Knights of the Nine. The score is 8/10 and here's the interesting opening:
Oblivion divided opinion. Released in March to rapturous applause, it seemed as though Bethesda had driven Western RPG standards to new heights. Presented with a seemingly overwhelming array of choices, dwarfed by an enormous land to explore, besotted by lavish detail and beauty - Oblivion appeared to be the Goliath we'd been waiting for. Critics opened their arms and welcomed what they saw as the first of the truly next-generation games.
Yet it seems one person's selling points were another's drawbacks. Overwhelming choice was narrowed to dull repetition, vast lands became laborious obstacles, and beauty was criticised for her performance. Apathy soon crept in, attentions turned elsewhere. Could it be that this pinnacle of gaming lacked the depth to engage, was it guilty of having no soul?
More information.

If anyone is interested in this expansion, you can pick it up at circuit city for $9.99 (not online though — in store only). Half the price with Knights of the Nine + all the other bethesda created content!

Default Waiting for GOTY Edition

November 29th, 2006, 22:48
Now that they've opened the "Pandora's Box" with expansions, it's inevitable that there'll be a GOTY edition. So, why bother? Wait until the GOTY edition rolls out at US$29.99 or less & then get that one.
