As many fans of the Elder Scrolls series, I had been waiting a many moons for this baby. And I wasn't disappointed. The graphics are amazing, the fighting very dynamic and bloody. The added minigames for lockpicking and persuasion are a welcomed addition. I was disappointed with the rigidity of the controls (no spell or weapon scrolling possible with the mouse wheel or extra buttons) and the lack of a mini-map like we had in Morrowind, but these are minor details that don't stain the sheer magnificence of the gamen that will also probably be solved with patches or plugins. I must warn you: you need a pretty big machine to run this baby if you want to enjoy it: My Area-51M 7700 3Ghz 1Gig Ram Alienware laptop still lagged during the intro when I decided to add some extra shadows and details. So make sure you have a good Video cards and lots of ram!
