They were posted on the official TES forums but were taken off because they were illegal. Since this isn't the official elder scrolls forum, can whoever has them post them for all to gaze over?? smile.gif

You meant review and not preview right?

Anyways I was at least hoping the game would score a 9 in order for it to get my attention.
It looks like the game's going to live up to the hype after all beerchug.gif

I don't give OXM much credence when it comes to their reviews; almost as bad as EGM, but with xbox bias.

Interpretation: Their review scores don’t persuade me one way or another.

carlo, i gotta warn you, if you can get past the blurriness of the scans, its going to make the wait a hell of a lot harder happy.gif . I found these links in the GameSpot forum:

Page 1
Page 2
Page 2 [Censored Version] Considering how Bethesda has forbidden any info of what it's like to be in the realm of oblivion to be told, whoever scanned these has blanked out the photo of oblivion for those who dont want to spoil the surprise.
Page 3
Page 4

Enjoy!

Edit: Wow! look at the pic on page 2 of when you leave the first dungeon. now we know what all the editors who played it early were talking about! love.gif

Dammit you warned me and i looked anyways, those scans are a welcomed sign of how the final game has shaped up, especially after that long ass thread that was all about complaining how they removed certain things from the game! I cant wait, its gonna be my birthday present to myself!

Bahahahahahahaa!! ph34r.gif

just look at how sweet those environments look and how far the draw distance is when the guy is on the horse looking down at the city. this is the first time that i can say that a game actually looks breathtaking! biggrin.gif

Damn, I think it's safe to say that any 360 vs. PC debates over Oblivion are ended now. Those shots look absolutely stunning. Better than the clear screens Bethesda provided on their site. Goddamn, look at that draw distance and the weather effects. I haven't been this psyched for a game since Zelda V came the the N64.

great find! i can not wait for this damn game

one thing though, they mentioned how it would be advised to buy the collector's edition. i looked but cant view any sites at work, what are the main differences between the collector's and regular version? as long as i get a map and manual with the regular version like in morrowind ill be more then fine. is there any real advantage in buying the collector's edition?

haha they advised it because it comes with some literature to read from the elder scrolls world. if i remember tight, they were taking a shot at the load times. other that that though there is 3 other dvds that come with it on the making and all of that kind of stuff and a realistic replica of an in-game coin.

I was going to buy the collectors edition but it only comes with a cardboard case that folds out. i want it to fit in with the rest of my games so now im going to buy the basic version. tongue.gif
