The biggest issue is that a patch down load is an absolute need. Without it the game will have tons of problems. That being said, after the patch I found this game to be a lot of fun. Its not easy and every fight feels rewarding becasue any fight can be your last, so frequent saves are a must. Other than that its a very open ended game and keeps you going in multiple directions. Graphics are a bit old but not so bad that it is unplayable. The voice acting can be silly at times but it adds a strange silly charm to the game.

So this game puts you into the thick of a boss fight right off the bat no explanation you just fight him. Combat sucks i died like 10 times you just rapidly right click and hop for the best. And you dont even die you just get knocked out and drop the weapon you were using which you cant find 99% of the time. And plus when you get back up the enemy will wail on you and kill you when youre getting back up. This game broke me instantly and i uninstalled it within 10 mins
This game has serious issues all across the board. The biggest one for me would be the graphics, it looks to me as if the camera uses a fish eye lense because no matter which way you turn the camera all the pixles line up to give the fish eye lense effect. The next major issue I have would be the serious lag when in combat. It feels like you are playing a mmorpg under heavy lag. It takes around 4-5 seconds to swing a sword.

This is a great game for unlimited play. I love the fact you can follow quest and do many skills. The only draw back I see with this game is the lack of smooth game play during batles. The fights seem so choppy and the enemy seem to have a super human run speed so it turn into a caste hack fight of luck. A must try for sure
Having tried to run this game on three different state of the art machines, on operating systems ranging from Windows XP to Windows with next to zero luck, it easily is the worst coded failure I have ever tried Vista.
On Windows XP with a state of the art video card and all current drivers, I turned off every enhancement the game graphics offered and still the game ran like I had instlled it on anPC XT. It was simply unplayble. All game updates and patches were instlalled and I simply had to dump it. I have never played it to this day because of the pathetic coding, not to mention I got ZERO response from the publisher/devloper and their website obviously were of no use either.
The suppor forums offered no solutions as well. It does appear some people managed to get the game running. But I never did. With well over 1800 games instlled on my machine perfectly well, I don't believe the problem lies with me. I've been computing since the mid 80's and have a vast collection and computer experience.
This Is A Good Game. Runs Great. Open World. Only Problem I Had Was A Hard To Follow Path A Bit Too Non-Linear Like The First Time You Play An Elder Scrolls Game And You Get Horribly Lost Forgetting The Story Completely Just Running Around Killing Things And Getting Killed. If You Have Issues It's. YOU NOT THE GAME. Runs Flawlessly If You Can Meet Or Exceed The Requirements. But All In All I Say 6 Out Of 10
