In my experience it was pretty outdated gameplay wise and story was just meh... Playing started to feel like a chore after around the canyon of titan, then i had to get though railroad nomads and it got srsly boring, just going back and forth, also quests are pretty limited and poorly designed even when it's not another fetching quest like 99% of them... When i finally dragged myself to California i was just having no fun from playing anymore... Ran around starting complex and decided to spend my free time on something more enjoyable...
I srsly see no merit to this game... Writing and story is okeyish at best but nothing involving or exciting that would make me want to play any longer to pursue the story. Gameplay is pretty repetitive, outdated, poorly thought out and too simple... I mean combat, mechanics, interacting with the world, quests.. srsly overrated game, hyped by hipster kickstarter backers, rated highly because its so muh oldschool while in fact its a mediocre game at best.
Recently i played through some old games so it's not like i can't enjoy them.
Even divine divinity was better than this(much better).… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Feb 17, 2012Looking at 31 positive scores i kinda lose faith in professional reviews and feel like they give instant high rating to popular games afterLooking at 31 positive scores i kinda lose faith in professional reviews and feel like they give instant high rating to popular games after playing them for very short time just to pump industry with money and be popular... :/
Imo skyrim lacks what good rpg game should have. Immersive feel, atmosphere and gameplay. Like old thief, baldurs gate, torment or gothic, or to lesser extend new witcher or even amnesia the dark descent... tbh there aren't made many good games nowadays.
Stuff i dislike in skyrim are: big but lone/boring world where most stuff looks the same (copypasta), fighting is just basically boring not involving one or two button smashing(+drinking potions), npcs feel so "detached" in this world don't make me want to look around for quests or to talk to them...
Main plot was really mediocre and when you complete it game loses any point of playing anymore because everything feels like filler. Game mechanics suck... Why would they even do stuff like lockingpicking, rhetoric, stealth, its just illusion of choice but in truth they are all useless... This whole game feels more like poor fake/artifical "program" and not like word. I even felt more of rpg in WoW than in this mediocre game. Character models move awkwardly when strafing, if you dual wield, your second weapon isn't even displayed on your belt. Games keeps retard friendly skill level both during battles and so called puzzles.
You get big world, walk around this same caverns without feeling of purpose, without joy or satisfaction when fighting, talking to these same looking fake npcs. Meh... After playing this game for like 30 hours its linearity and repetitiveness becomes very apparent. Very overrated and overhyped game which doesn't even deserve place between true rpgs. These high rating only show how biased and subjective gaming reviewers are, you can't trust them... Sadly this way we can't expect developers to make really good games like in past.
Anyway this game deserve 5 on 10point scale where 10 are greats like torment, fallout, bg2 and 0 utter crap like postal...
Its still better than oblivion but this doesn't mean its good, im giving it 0 just to downrate it little bit.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Apr 5, 2011One of most overrated games in history.

It had nice graphics when it lasted (i bought and played it on release) but honestly... nothing else. Terrible gameplay, fighting, same 2 or 3 voice actors for every character. linearity, terrible character development and world leveling systems, very mediocre plot. Playing as melee classes is boring clicking of one button, well mages do not differ much from this. I cant understand that unfounded cult surrounding this title. I do not recommend this game to anyone, its boring, anticlimactic and rly overrated..… Expand

Btw i loved fallout and fallout 2. baldurs gates, torment, icewind dale. THEY HAD CLIMATE THIS GAME TOTALLY LACKS.. It's just boring, no wonder it never had big success, developers made some grave mistakes when creating this game.… Expand
