Anyone rating this game less than a 9 is a true idiot. The game really does have 500+ hours, tons more weapons and armor than compared with oblivion, expansion packs are great, and every single dungeon is different. Dungeons have same outlining and texture, but they are completely different. In oblivion all the dungeons and caves repeated themselves except some were longer than others. If you have seen one cave in oblivion than you have seem them all, well cave versus crypt versus dungeon were different. However, skyrim's underground were all different. Lets put it this way, if you enter the woods anywhere in the USA then you will see trees and dirt, but which way you go and how it looks is different, yet there are trees and dirt. That is the same with skyrim. I loved oblivion, but it no way compares to skyrim. Yes there are glitches and complications, but who cares, 500 HOURS!!! Tons of perks, leveling system is better and now with the expansions the leveling has quadrupled in greatness, graphics are the best out there, but lets face it, graphics will not look any different from 2008-2013 until ps4 and the new xbox comes out. There was just so much to do from hours of wandering around different areas, to fighting non stop. Some parts or repetitive like the children and voices, so lets hope the next installment is 100% larger and not as repetitive. This review is coming from a guy who has 200 hours on one character and 160 hours on another, my 200+ guy has finished all the expansions and a lot of side quests, but yet I am stuck on rats causeway because of a glitch. Stupid dude after diplomacy wont come out of his hole, so main quest is bugged and I can't get dragon masks either or some shouts. I still love the game because it's better than a lot out there and is the only game worth 60$. For instance uncharted was awesome and I paid 20$, but I probably wont play it again for awhile, same goes with assassins. However skyrim/COD are lengthy and worthIT
I love this game it has so many things to do and is one of my favorite RPGs. Skyrim for those of you who don't know takes place in a huge country called Tamriel which you get to explore freely Tamriel is in a civil war right now and your character pops in at not so good of a time once the extremly long non-skippable cutscene is over you have to do a little quest then your off on your way I personnaly don't spend to much time on quests which is cool because this game is pretty much endless and the side quests are awesome. all and all this game is great and I would tottaly reccomend it.
