Hey guys, my ears were burnin so I thought I would drop by with some early impressions.
I haven't had any real time to offer anything close to a review or rate it or anything at this point because my time with it has been short.
Basically I played through to the first achievement which involves getting out of the initial area you start in and make it outside.
You get the usual stuff early on starting with character creation. Probably the most involved I have seen for a console game, and one where you will never really see your face in game.
On that note, I was kind of freaked out because the default character strikes a resembelance to yours truly. A few more tweaks and I had a character that was a spitting image.
I got to explore some caves, walk around the countryside, ride a horse, and do some swimming. It was a very adventurous couple of hours and even for that short of a time it's hard to sum it all up.
There's so much here and the area is so huge. 16 sq miles, I believe. There are many things to pick up in the game, in fact you can grab just about anything even if it won't be used for anything.
There's also lockpicking, which I'm still a little cofused how to do. Thannk God there is an auto pick feature.
The voice acting is really done well, Patrick Stewart really takes a game up to new levels just hearing his narration.
The score is quite excellent as well.
So initially my take is the graphics look really good. The buildings & textures are really detailed as well as some of the outdoor environments. The character movements and fighting is a step up from Morrowind.
