The thing I really love about this game is that you canFirst of all, story line is not important for me so I can't say anything about it.
The thing I really love about this game is that you can just wander around the enormous world. Also you can adjust the game with mods from workshop and console to fit the style you like to play (for example - increase weight limit, remove level cap, remake buff mechanics, add spells/perks/quests/items/money/locations/textures/etc.). I'm level 80 now (max is 60.. or 50 :) ) and not even close to the main quest end - it is still very interesting just to explore new locations.
First I played an illegal copy (no demo exists, shame on you!) and it was really buggy, but by the time I bought a legal one those where fixed. Little bugs still occur sometimes, like misplaced textures and that sort of stuff.
I remember now just 3 disappointing things: 1) After installation of more than 50 mods if I run far enough while game is autosaving it sometimes freezes (may be a bug of a particular mod, who knows); 2) 9 shortcuts for spells/gear/shouts is not enough for me, I'd like to have an ability to make more of them (for example, not only 1-9, but also Ctrl+1, Alt+1, F1 - something like Lineage II and other MMOs). 3) Master spells of destruction where quite disappointing for the first time - you can't move while you cast them, so they were useless with my playstyle.
Also I would like to mention that if you know the way you like to play - Skyrim has some possibilities of gameplay customization. On the other side, if you'll install every mod you see (without thinking) it may ruin the game. Just play a vanilla one then :) .
I think Skyrim deserves a 9.5, but in comparison with other games on the market I'll give it a strong 10.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.0Jun 6, 2012Actually no skill tree. Poor character graphics at starting screen. On the contrary, here and there on the map graphic details are redundantActually no skill tree. Poor character graphics at starting screen. On the contrary, here and there on the map graphic details are redundant and look bad. No WASD controls as an option, can't move while casting (just as in Diablo 2, but I want it). Casting has a little delay. Maps still have blind zones. My keyboard (and even mouse!) has more keys for abilities than just 4. Doubtful user interface usability (IMHO). Internet connection is needed for single player. Servers are sometimes overloaded or in maintenance. Rumors that character can be hacked in realtime while playing online. Real money auction. PVP only in arenas.
It is NOT a Diablo 3. It is ****… Expand
