I did. The gameplay's very similar, with improvements in the most bland or annoying aspects of Morrowind's gameplay (combat, stealth, and magic have been spiced up, as well as skills which provide perks at certain levels, but the stupid leveling sistem is still there), and the Shivering Isles expansion added some variety to the endless grassland that was Cyrodiil.

There are fewer missions than Morrowind, because the dialog is all with voice acting.

Enchanting has been nerfed to hell, but there are ready-enchanted items in the game that can make you literally invincible, though.

I highly recommend it, and on PC. I'd never play the vanilla (read: Xbox 360) version. There is so much that unofficial mods improve and add to the game that you can't imagine.

But if you want to get barely the 40% of what you could get for PC for the same price (like the trend seems to be), then be my guest.

Thanks. I'm getting a PS3 soon, and Oblivion with it, since there are no other good games on it yet that I know of. I know the value of fan modding so I hope the main game is very good. Good to know the irritating gameplay has been improved. Is the atmosphere as somber as Morrowind? I normally prefer more uplifting games like Final Fantasy.

No, the atmosphere is waaay brighter. Almost always sunny, grassy hills, you know. That's not the Bitter Coast.

Unless you've already ordered it yet, GET IT ON PC. If not, well, you'll still have a good game, which could have been so much better.

The PS3's going to get games like GTA IV, FFXIII, Metal Gear Solid 4, Silent Hill 5, and Devil May Cry 4. You'll still be able to pick up great games.

I can't stress enough how better the Elder Scrolls games are for PC.

Wii's getting the new Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. That's looking really good. Much better looking than the one for Gamecube.

My pc isn't the greatest so I have to turn off HDR lighting but pretty much can have everything else on awesome game.

I can't say I get bored of the endless grass land just as I didn't get bored of the endless lava burned ground of morrowind.

Best game by far my only gripes are that magic is one on one there are hardly any spells that help mob control so if your battling 3 to 4 enimies all hitting you at the same time theres not much you can do about it other than shield up and take them down as fast as you can.

It looks far better on the pc than on the 360 I've played both version's.

I completed:
Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, I've heard that this remake is too easy. And except for the extra dungeons, there indeed was not much challenging.
Final Fantasy III DS, the game is relatively easy... Until you get to the last dungeon, I had to do the last dungeon 10 times before I managed to beat it .
Final Fantasy IV: Advance, I played this on an emulator, amazing game, its story really is exceptional. The work they've put on character development is really great.
Final Fantasy VII, I've played the PC version. And I've got to say: absolutely astonishing. I'm not going to say more about it, it has already received so much praise.
Final Fantasy VIII, a bit less than FFVII, but nonetheless excellent.

For the rest, I have played FFV, FFVI, FFIX and FFX but I didn't quite finish them. As for FFVI, I'm very close to completion but I don't have the time to play any FF atm.

Outside of FF, I like Baldur's Gate alot, aswell as Neverwinter Nights and Chrono Trigger. I'm planning on playing more RPG's if I have the time.

If you have a PSP, there's always Final Fantasy Tactics Shishi No Sensou (IIRC) coming out.
