This game has everything in it. As a fan of Oblvion, I was hoping that Skyrim would live up to its predecessor, and boy, oh boy did it! In fact, this game is way better than Oblivion, in my opinion. It has everything I loved about Oblivion and then some. The only bad thing I can say about this game is that its causing me to lose alot of sleep and making me resent having to go to work!!!
There isn't enough space to write a good review here, to be honest you couldn't really describe this game and do it justice, you just have to play it. 4 million copies sold the first two days should tell you something, I can't put it down, its ridiculously addictive compared to morrowind and oblivion, way better than both of them.
If you rent it like me you will end up paying the keep price for sure, tons of quests, tons of dragons to slay, and the quests are not small boring ones either, some are extremely long. I haven't even rode a horse yet, don't want to, spent hours just wandering the wilderness, making it slowly to the next town, village, city etc..fantastic game, just rent it already, you won't be disappointed.
