theres no map markers because this game came before that time. if ur an amateur at this type of game , its not for u. to find ur quest objectives u MUST talk to people and remember what they say. that being said. this is one of the GRETEST GAMES KNOWN TO HUMAN KIND. period.
I got this game when i was 18 and it was a couple years old. I knew almost immediately that it was the best game I had ever played and ended up replaying the game at least 4 times. The map is HUGE, every quest is hard, at first. I had never played any RPG's at that point and spent some time at the start of the game with a wimpy character just going around trying to steal things because there are some very valuable items that you can steal but even stealing is hard. You can do so many things in this game, even build your own house out of mushrooms!! You can levitate and walk anywhere. Some of the best gear you can find(better than anything you can enchant yourself), is in dungeons. I could go on & on all day. It is just simply the best game that was ever made, no doubt. 10 out of 10, obviously.

For anyone who enjoyed Oblivion, this game is a must play. The map is roughly 4 times the size of Oblivion's, with even more stuff to explore packed into every square inch of this massive game. The customization is almost excessive, dwarfing oblivion (or any other RPG in history), from the weapons and armor to the spells and enchantments, if you don't put 250 hours into this game you won't see everything it has to offer. One thing I really appreciated that was omitted from Oblivion was the levitate spells, it adds a whole new element to the gameplay and makes you feel like you can do just about anything within the game world. The layout of the map couldn't be better, which makes the towns and the characters within them infinitely memorable. For an original Xbox title, this game holds it's own against anything out there today, and if they were to simply re-make and re-release it on the 360, I would gladly pick my controller up for another 200-300 hours of pure RPG heaven. There will probably never again be a game that is so massive or epic, so experience it while you still can (but just go out and buy it).
