The game received a universally positive critical response, the PC and Xbox 360 versions holding Metacritic scores of 94. The response from players was also generally positive, but the opinions of long-time fans of the series was more mixed, as many of them thought the game was too simplified compared to the previous installment in the franchise, ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''.

The game has spawned a huge and dedicated modding community that still continues to churn out content rapidly. These mods range from new items to complete overhauls of the game. For mods with their own trope pages, see ''VideoGame/IntegrationTheStrandedLight'' and ''{{Nehrim}}''.

In the long view, the game has also faced some pointed criticism for [[ObviousBeta glaring technical issues]] that become very obvious during long or repeated playthroughs, as well as certain aspects of its gameplay mechanics being extremely, almost trivially-to-the-point-of-doing-so-accidentally easy to break. ''These'' criticisms are ones the game's [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim descendants]], obvious [[VideoGame/Fallout4 or otherwise]], have tried to answer.

* GameBreakingBug: A rather well-known bug exists called [[http://forums.uesp.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17892 Abomb]] which causes slow but steady and inevitable corruption to save files over time. Save files become clogged with useless data that, after so many hours of play, albeit it can take over 200 hours(though between all the side quests, guilds and extra quests from mods, this isn't too hard to accomplish). The end result is that animations become slow or outright freeze, making projectiles, magic attacks and even doors fail to work and can render the game unplayable. Several tools exist for the PC to clean save files, though console users can be all but out of luck trying to fin it unless they can somehow extract the save from the console and manually hex edit, and even then that only works for the Xbox port, leaving PS3 users with no recourse. Bethesda is also aware of the flaw but declined to make a game patch to fix it as Oblivion was too old for them to take focus away from current game development to fix an older title.

* KeystoneArmy:
** Most of the named Goblin tribes (the exceptions being "Bitterfish" and "White Skin") in the game will automatically stop being hostile towards the player once they eliminate the local shaman. They'll even let you explore their lairs at your own pace and take their stuff without even attempting to stop you. However, they ''will'' resume attacking you if you decide to harm them any further.
** Also, summoned creatures will automatically vanish if the NPC that conjured them gets killed.
** Once you kill [[LoadBearingBoss Mankar Camoran]] in Paradise, then Eldamil, the Camoran siblings, and all the other immortal residents will drop dead on the spot. A similar event happens to the Golden Saints and Dark Seducers when their Wellsprings are stopped by the forces of Order.
