    Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion Review - Game interaction

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    The level of interaction in the game is fantastic and extremely rich; you can pick up almost anything from your environment and most things can be made use of in one way or another. Even the lowly rats that attack you in dungeons can be picked up once they have been killed and used to make poisons which you can coat your sword in to increase its effectiveness against enemies. 

    To mix up your own potions and poisons, you'll need to obtain a pestle and mortar, but once this has been found, you'll find a large number of items can be combined to produce things to heal you or hinder your enemies.

    When you fight an enemy, a health bar is displayed so that you know how much life they have left.  This is an excellent feature that enhances the tactical strategy element of the game.  Once dispatched, any enemy can be searched for food, weapons, gold and even clothing and armor, although some enemies make use of magical armor that they summon upon themselves which will disappear once the creature has been killed.

    There's an enormous number weapons in the game to be found and fought with.  Another nice touch is that when arrows are fired, they can be pulled out of the ground or even from their targets and reused.  Each character also has two special spells that are unique to its race, and you can find many other spells throughout the course of the game to use to your advantage.
