You should have acted. They're already here. The Elder Scrolls told of their return. Their defeat was merely delay until the time after Oblivion opened, when the sons of Skyrim would spill their own blood. But... there is one they fear. In their tongue he is Dovahkiin; Dragon Born!

Graphics are to hyped but still I like the art direction. Game play like most elder scrolls feels sloppy and broken, they still haven't found anything to combat the "jump on a rock" so people can't hurt you. Character's level up too easily and become just all round gods, The fact that anyone can cast magic is an example of this, warriors are also extremely skilled with bows, everyone can make a decent weapon at an armoury, everyone can skin animals, everyone can enchant and everyone can make decent potions. The economy is weak and just easy to become rich, strong weaponry is to easy to find. Characters seem bland and unvaried, it seems like Bethesda really didn't pour allot into this game, or well at least not as much as they could of. The story was ok, wasn't really amazing. Character creation is still pretty limited considering the size of this project, would of preferred more hair styles and all that. Despite being "an all new engine" it still had the gamebryo engine feel which is awkward and has sloppy movement. Few bugs here and there, a couple of models are poorly placed (mostly speed tree placed) and had invisible sides showing, all in all it holds your hand to much, has no real consequence tree, you don't even get exiled from towns etc for going on massacres. Being able to join all factions/guilds is another thing Im not happy about and the fact that you are a "chosen one".Got heaps more To whine about, but good things,
- Fun, but not impressive or challenging, I mean its always fun to wipe out towns and villages.
- Hand held difficulty
-Art direction has improved since oblivion
-Lot less buggy then oblivion

Short one this time as I can't bother with more with this crap.

- Story (TES-Lore) totally bastardized by retcons (totally breaks existing TES universe)
- Controls on PC beyond funny (UI handling catastrphic)
- Various game mechanics ripped out and replace with dumbed down crap
- Level system in general a joke
- Good graphics
- Character building dumbed down a lot
- NPCs in general are bland and generic (animations or faces nearly non-existent)
- Quests quite generic and boring

Overall RP in the name but not really in the game. Better as Oblivion but miles away from Morrowind.

Side note: Whoever calls this "best game ever" either has brain cancer or never played actually good games. Right now this game can't be recommended especially not for the full price. If you find this later in a sales box you can try but if you like good games this is definitely not what you are looking for. Especially if you like TES then this is a fist in the face and should be buried on the depths of the ocean with a big cement block around the legs.
