The lag does get so bad that it slows things to a crawls sometimes.
It crashes on auto-saves..so far 12 crashes (and I do think this is affecting my PS3 console since it now crashes on other games where it did not before)
The fun is endless, the quests and awards are unlimited...but to fix the above issues this is what you do:
(I have tested this over the last 23 hours of playing with a 100% success rate...so this does work)
Go into the settings, and un-check the auto-save features (3). You will need to start saving on your own more often of course, I even went back and checked the save on rest without any problems..so great, not only does it no longer crash at all...but the lag is ALL GONE...when I enter rooms or change environments (the usual loading points), it takes between 3-8 seconds only instead of 1 minute each time...so going store to store is a breeze.
My save game is 14mb, so very large...you can lower this by waiting for a total of 30 days (in a row), this will clear the entire game of dead corpses and re-spawn enemies that should be re-spawned. This will significantly lower the save size but I have not needed to do this since I no longer have any issues...
We'll see what future patches will resolve, and yes there are issues (quests being unable to be completed, quest items not leaving your inventory etc...but these are all superficial).
Hope this helps :-)
UPDATE Jan 6 2012
- Now have played over 200 hours, had 3 crashes only since I applied my tricks, still better than crashing every time I play. You get used to saving on your own, and this overall makes the game play much faster as well
Defeated by the Aldmeri Dominion of High Elves, the Empire is forced to sign the White Gold Concordant, stripping away religious freedom to worship Talos: one of the nine divines in the series. This causes a civil war in Skyrim, half of which wishes to secede from the Empire. However, Dragons are also thrown into the mix as an Ancient world destroying Evil is awoken, and it's up to the main character to end it all.
As is to be expected in any Bethesda Game, the story telling is weak. It's clear that effort was put into other aspects, but not delivering a good story. But Skyrim isn't a game you'd play for the story telling either. There's no character development, no attempt to cause emotional entanglements: it's a story about going here, doing that, killing that, and saving the world. NPC's serve no other purpose than to tell you WHY things are happening, and give you your next quest marker.. not actually play meaningful roles as characters. It's rather disappointing to see Bethesda once again take this approach with their story telling.
(In contrast, the story-telling in the DLC Dawnguard is exactly what should have been done in the rest of the game. Serana has depth, personality, and a story that actually makes you care about what's happening)
Skyrim is an RPG, much like the other Elder Scrolls games.Read more ›
Nevertheless, I spent countless hours completing other quests and simply exploring the incredibly interesting and open game world. Fighting dragons and hunting down dragon words in dungeons was tons of fun as well. Another key element to my enjoyment was the pronounced gradual increase of my character's strength. I remember being terrified in the beginning of accidentally walking in on a snow troll in the mountains, because he would take me out in two hits. Now I can snipe him with a single arrow from afar like a boss.
In addition, the fact that Skyrim's world was heavily influenced by Scandinavian culture was highly enjoyable for me, because I simply love Scandinavia. Names like Sovngarde, Skjor, and Jorrvaskr may sound weird to some, but I absolutely loved that aspect of the game. You might feel a bit lost because of the unfamiliar names at first, but the key is to realize that these names aren't just some weird choices on the developers' part, they are actually rooted in the Nordic languages.
In conclusion, be sure to download the latest patch before playing or you might have a bad time. As outrageous and unacceptable as this might sound, the places where Skyrim shines really do allow you to overlook even some major quest-breaking bugs. There is simply too much interesting stuff to do to be upset over any single one thing. Be careful though, unless you have much free time on your hands, don't even start playing or you will ruin your real life. :)
