To start off this game is great, it brings everything you loved from the last games in this series and makes them even better.
First off, this game has some of the best graphics that I've ever seen, not only enviromental but also the characters look very good too, much better than in Oblivion. When it comes to gameplay this game also is much better than the previous games in the elder scrolls series, at first the fighting will seem a bit slow but as you play it more it doesn't seem as slow. Skyrim has a huge amount of gametime you'll never run out of things to do, and the map as you might have guessed is also massive, leaving you with many places to explore as usual. The main storyline is great, and the side quests are just as good.
I give this game a 10 because it is all around just a great game, this game is a definate Buy for fans of RPG's and the Elder Scrolls series.
I got it for Christmas, and I reccomend this game to basicly anybody. The beginning might be slow, but the rest of the game is great. I also reccomend you get this for a console, and not a computer, my friend got it for his computer and he said it wasn't that great, while I own it for PS3. I give this 10/10 for excellent gameplay and intriguing lore.
