Not a bad game all and all but after playing Skyrim this seems more like a game for those who were too confused by Skyrim. Graphically they went with more of a WoW style (very cartoon like) Gameplay they tried to go more towards God of War, which in itself is great but at the end of the day if I'm going to be playing a game that's like WoW or GOW I think I'd rather be playing WoW or GOW and not just something that's kinda like them.
I haven't had this much fun since Dragon Age: Origins and The Witcher 1 & 2. I'm a bit of a completionist and I do get sucked into the lore. So far, I've spent over 200 hours in the game and still have not finished my first playthrough. It is an open world and each region looks distinctly different. There's crafting and factions, but no romance options. There are choices in various conversations. Although, I have no idea whether or not those choices affect the ending since I haven't finished the game yet. The level of detail is such that books look like tomes, letters look like parchments and gear has flavor text. For me, this game is just awesome!
This game was really really fun, put in around 20 hours of side quests then decided to do the story line, first couple of quests went fine until i got the the hunters hunted quest. All i got from this as the same dialog and couldn't start the actual quest, after restarting and losing everything i had, i finally was able to start the quest just to get stuck trying to break a crystal that wouldn't break. at this point i had to put it down and remove it from my system before i lost it and destroyed something.
