In a word, EPIC. You CAN NOT pass this game up, it's quite possibly the best (single-player) game ever, not including future Bethesda games that is :) Bottom line, if you like the Elder Scrolls, you probably got this game on 11/11/11, but if you've never played the Elder Scrolls, now's a good time to start.
Pros: beautiful graphics, fun and diverse combat, randomly generated quests mixed with scripted quests, dragons, 315 locations, approx. 300 hrs of game-play (supposedly), and my favorite; every skill is very useful unlike in Oblivion and Morrowind.
Cons:rare glitches/bugs, the npc voices aren't as diverse as they were meant to be, some of the cool armor from Oblivion now looks just plain stupid, other than that the only con is that the DLC's aren't out yet!!!
I just received this game and played about 15 hours and I already know that it will get GOTY. it's amazing and it has so much content it's a wonder how they put all of this on one disc. It's so much fun. I definitely recommend that you buy this.

I have never played the previous Elder Scrolls adventures, but I decided to give Skyrim a try after hearing all of the positive reviews it was receiving. I'm glad I did, because this game is epic and a joy to play all around. There is never a dull moment and there is so much to do in this game (literally a ton of stuff to do, might take months to eventually beat if I enjoy it to the fullest).
My only regret, is jumping on the Elder Scrolls wagon this late in the ball game.
I would highly recommend this game to anyone and would say the story line, graphics and attention to detail are extraordinary on all levels.
