well ive read most of the reviews and i would agree with 95% of what everyone was saying that this is a keeper and awesome. But this game is not perfect and since you can see i rated this a 9 obviously i loved it. so im gonna share the negative aspects.

alot of items didnt get as much detail as say the scenery, which you dont really pay attention to but still. also when an AI opens a door they sometimes go right through it, or they open the door and the door just goes through them, usually in houses. Also weapons when put away are just there on your body like a quiver of arrows, if you look at them there just floating behind you like an inch so if there was a strap to show that there on you that would be cool same with any weapons. when its raining it goes thru bridges.

when your in a guild there are rules, usually no killing your guild members. in the theives guild you steal something (i forget) from a mage and sometimes things happen and you kill him, so even though theres noone around you and it was a stealthy kill youll be cast out of the mages guild.

some side missions are bogus, like if your the arch mage, and your doing theives guild missions you have to steal a staff from the arch mages room but since you completed the mages guild your the arch mage so your stealing some staff thats in your room, thats pretty odd and theres a few more like that.

there are bugs in this game, sometimes they happen sometimes they dont so save often. it freezes or when your spying the AI wont talk to eachother or even reconize that there standing next to eachother, or an quest item just disappears or you have a key that unlocks a chest or door but it wont work, things like that.

if you break into a place and they catch you you can have a convo with them and walk out idk about you but i would call the guards not have a friendly convo with someone that broke in.

i can go on but im running out of room so altho this game is insane it isnt perfect.

Good game, but I found it overstimulating.
