If you have not played Morrowind then you most likely won't be too impressed with the visuals, we are talking about absolutely massive levels which you are roaming around and that kind of quality. And unlike Doom you can see things

The oblivion screenshots look more impressive than like friggin 3DMark2005 in my opinion. I thought Morrowind graphics were amazing back in 2002, it was using DX8 effects back then I think. The water was just amazing, and the draw distance was very nice, very detailed environment and characters. Now I'm basically saying same thing about Oblivion.

Well, I did at first...but it's SO easy to level in that game and then it just gets so tedious and boring once everything dies in 1-4 hits. Plus those flying Rock Racers or whatever are so ****ing annoying.

The only thing lacking in MW was the combat, except for the bow. Oblivion is suppose to improve the sword play and mode of travel (adding the use of horses should be interesting). Oblivion looks to be impressive but we will have to wait at least a year to find out.

Plugins made morrowind a lot better for me. Especially the retexturing\remodeling projects that made the game look a LOT better.

I was on the preorder list for the collectors edition and I had it before a lot of people, and I still play it once in a while with a bunch of plugins enabled.

BTW, theres a plugin that makes the cliff racers friendly so they dont swarm you. They only attack if you fight them.

And this game is going to be amazing. Seeing how theres still a year left of developement and those screens are at least a couple months old, its going to look amazing.

Check out the article by todd howard (developer). Its linked on the main TES page. He brings up some things that make me think this game is going to be a lot better than Morrowind.

I cant wait for this one

what are some of these plugins that make the graphics better? i would reinstall and play again if the game had a new face.

actually, give me a list and small description of the plugins you use, or at least your favorites, please.
