This and saints row the third, were my first games shipped when i signed up. I started playin one night at 6:00 and ended up getting of at 4:00 in the morning! This game will keep you occupied for so many weeks! There are also new things in here such as: Improved graphics, cooking,getting married, dragons!, new weapons, new potions, 3D items (so you can look at your items in your inventory in 3D view), weapon enchantments, potion making!, cool armor, 3D map visual!, improved horse animations, cool new spells, updated graphics on different races, new enemies such as mammoths! giants, saber cat tigers, ice wolves etc, and finally dragon shouts which enables you to litterly shout and different things happen, magical!also new weapon graphics improved and look more sharper and being able to kill yor enemy in slo mo execution style is frakin sweet! all in all this game IS worth getting and even buying! youll never get bored fast!......oh but i forgot, the only con is that it lags from time to time. Which means, say, you are fighting a dragon or something that causes alot of movement, it tends to slow up or freeze a little. If you played angry birds and launched a bird that froze in the air for a second then youll know what i mean...BUT its not something that is a giant problem. Hope this pursuades you!!
