Excellent

Really good but still glitchy

Skyrim is fantastic, graphics are so pretty, gameplay is fun, sharp and pretty responsive. They made magic alot more fun in this game than previous ones.

The biggest problem I find with the game is the texture collision problems, nothing is more frustrating than hacking through a dungeon and getting to the boss of it then getting stuck on a tiny rock your character becomes locked and the boss just pumbles you down.

That being said... Make sure you save before you tackle big bosses and the like just incase you get stuck its happened to me twice now.

Second problem I noticed was at the beginning of the game had some terrible sound issues but was resolved after an hour or so of gameplay thankfully.

And last but not least alot of times NPC's have a hard time following you or being useful.

Other than that though the game plays fantastic, the quests are fun, the side quests are fun too! I love going around pick pocketing, breaking into houses and hunting dragons Toss some really neat shouts in there and magic and you've got endless hours of playing around getting new spells and shouts

This game is magnificent and we all know that, but be careful! If you make more than 2 characters, it will automatically erase your oldest character to make room (thus you can only have 2 characters), and it does it with absolutely no warning. I even made a seperate save file to test my theory and it got erased too. Kinda ruined my day after i had been playing it nonstop since it came out and now im back at square one. Luckily this game is amazing and im not even remotely tired of it yet. Here we go again.
