I love this game, and i love the third one. This game improves on the last one but it feels almost the same. Now i now people will be pissed and say "well ya!", but when the third one came out it was revolutionary and no one had ever played and rpg like that. Then this one comes out and i was pumped because i thought on the 360 they could do anything they wanted like being able to make your own amour and weapons, but alas no.
The game is huge and it takes forever to walk anywhere, you can warp but whats the fun in that, to pick a place and then look at a loading screen, fun!! What a breakthrough in next generation gaming.
Overall though i love this game, it has so many missions and most are side missions. Ive played almost close to one hundred hours and i feel like im just starting to get to the story missions. The story is decent making you want to leave work early to go home and get that mission done, or kick some ass in the arena.
So i suggest you buy/rent this game. Play it, love it, hate it if you must, but it will make going outside walking in the woods seem different, almost like your in Tamriel...
