Well, I have played 130 hours so far, still 1 character, I have not progressed even 1/3 way through the main storyline and there is still a HUGE amount of side aspects to explore. I am saying this game is the ABSOLUTE greatest RPG game ever made..but some issues:

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

I don't know if this game is broken, if it has bugs, if it crashes, which it probably does from all the other reviews I have read. But the most important issue with this highly overrated game is that it is a pure and genuine bore. I played a few games in my time, and this piece of work is so bad I couldn't continue playing within a few hours and just took it back to the store and got rid of it. Folks, I am writing this to save you the time and money, and wish you could just try and play this thing before making a purchase to make your own decision. Right off the bat, the fighting controls that I expect from first person control games is just not here. You end up flailing your sword into thin air hoping it will make contact with an enemy, which it almost never does for some strange reason. The crossbow or bow would not aim or shoot properly, you end up running for your life with all these villagers chasing you, until they catch up and just beat you to death. You cannot escape or put up some meaningful fight. You don't get to fight any dragons or any monsters because the villagers finish you off before you even start playing. The graphics are really old school stuff, a time when programming was in its infancy, green, gray, blurry, depressing, just like the gameplay. I guess some people may enjoy this type of stuff, brings them back to those Atari times - hey an Atari game is more fun than this thing. For me, I need a little more entertainment for my hard earned cash. I'm just grateful my experience with Skyrim is over and that I fought hard to get my money back, which I did. And yes, the game did freeze on me twice at the very beginning, the reason I used to get a refund, but not the real reason I got rid of it. Good luck.

Received the game quickly from Dead Beat within a week. I love the game play for this game if ya like the dungeons and dragons type. Tips playing, free up memory as the game will freeze if you do not so if game seems in good shape, don't blame the game, you can save anytime so do this lots aka anytime you get a chance as autosave is not always on your side, you can fast travel, get married yes I said get married:), also speed up time by pushing select and choosing the amount of time you wish to pass by in case a shop is closed to sell items, again this game is worth playing two thumbs up.

Skyrim is the fifth installment in the popular Elder Scrolls series which has rocketted to huge popularity in the last few years thanks to Skyrim. This review will cover my experiences playing the PS3 version of the game only as it currently stands, and will not include impressions from the PC version or XBOX 360 version beyond comparison.

Story

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)

Gameplay

Skyrim is an RPG, much like the other Elder Scrolls games.
