I made sure to download the latest patch before playing Skyrim (1.4 at the time), so that was probably crucial to my enjoyment of the game, because there were significant performance and gameplay issues reported on launch for PS3. Even then, I still encountered an issue that prevented me from completing the Civil War quest line, so that was a bit of a disappointment.

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. :)

This would be the perfect game is it weren't for the bugs. Fortunately you get used to them after a while. The game itself is as entertaining as any game I've ever played, and with a lot more customization options for your character (both pre and during the game). This could almost be called Sim-Skyrim.

There are so many different things that you can do in this game. Takes soooooooooo much time to try and beat this game and once you think your done BAM theres more to do. Absolutely loved this game and still havent beaten it. Only thing that sucks is the loading times. Its a huge game so that is expected

A very addictive, fun and interactive game, but due to it's wide range of possibilities and outcomes, it contains many glitches, but nothing that spoils the fun.
The elder scrolls series never ceases to amaze! Enjoy!

Game is amazing and very interactive...I would have given the game a full 5 star rating however the game does freeze up forcing a complete reboot of my PS3. Other then that all is good.

I opted for the PS3 version (as opposed to the PC) since the screen size and the surround sound in my man-cave are part of the gaming experience I like. However, other reviews will show you that there are lag/delay issues with the PS3 version. So far, they're not big issues for me (I saw a small bit of lagging during play, and the delays between scenese can be long sometimes), but I've not played the game that long and some reports say it gets worse. Skyrim has many, many quests and it's a lot of fun to play this game.

This game is AMAZING! I totally love it! ...But, like Oblivion (The Elder Scrolls IV) it does have some bugs that cause the character to fall through mountains or get stuck in house walls.

Don't let this dissuade you! Oblivion was AWESOME despite the kinks! Skyrim is 100x better (I never thought I'd actually say that about a video game)!
