    I was browsing Amazon.com and saw Oblivion is available for the PS3 (not out here yet) and I was thinking of getting it. (Amazingly they will ship out Oblivion to Australia but not Resistance: Fall of Man - wtf?)

    Anyway can someone tell me what the fighting style is like in it and I understand you can pretty much chose your own storyline is this true?

    I thought it was one of the best games I've ever played. Only true problem was constant loading times but that may be different with the more powerful PS3.

    In the review they said the load times were quick.

    I never had problems with loading times. I mean there are loading times, but they're pretty quick, like 3-4 seconds at the most.

    Regarding storyline, there is a main storyline that you can follow whenever you want to, but other than that you can explore the world at will and follow a lot of other sub-storylines.

    Is it voice or scripted when talking to others?

    Voice and the cinematic sequences are very well done. I personally think the intro is one of the best game intro's ever made.

    Gunny, I don't like RPGs and I have played this game inside and out a couple of times. What I like about it is the mixture of hack-n-slash game play with RPG style leveling and story. Think KOTOR with even more control of the fight.
