Pros Beautiful, expansive.
Cons No character development, impersonal.
Summary Everything about this game is amazing, except the one thing that's the most important to me in a game: there's no character development. Sure, the more you use a swords or pick locks the better you get at those skills, but who are you as a character? The actual person you create stays static throughout the game. Your good or bad actions mean nothing in the grand scheme of things, and your character seems more and more like a robot. And all the people you interact with, who seem so interesting and varied at the beginning, become more and more boring as you progress because your interactions with them are so formulaic and impersonal. Sadly, this means that despite all it's good qualities, this game ultimately leaves me cold.

Pros I love it, I still play this game 2-5 hours a day and I have owned it for over 2 years. there is over 5000 mods for this game, so there is always some thing else to do.
Cons Addictive, so hard to walk away from, but needs a good computer to really play.
Summary I even built a new computer so I could play this game better. It's so pretty and realistic.
Pros Graphics and graphical battle sequences
Cons Buggy under XP, fine under 2000, design of game lacking in key areas
Summary Now the graphics are awesome and gives the game an 8 in spite of the problems I've encountered. Which are:
Crashes to desktop under Windows XP frequently and at the worst times (with or without the latest patch). However, it works fine under Windows 2000 as most games do I've found. To me this game would have been perfect had there been hit points awarded to your advancement upon killing an enemy creature (hint: Blizzard did awesome on this in Diablo; so why ruin a good thing?). The graphics are kickin' during the fighting sequences, but your ONLY real reward is watching the pretty graphics. The most irritating thing I discovered is a bug in what it takes to kill an enemy creature. You can fight the same exact creature the same exact way and end up killing it in 5-7 fireballs/weapons hacks one time then run right into the same creature again and find out now you need 70-80 fireballs/weapons hacks! There's no uniformity in what it take to kill a creature. I found myself having to fight a creature for 2 minutes one time and the next time almost an hour to finish it off. This takes a lot of patience when you really want to get to the next part of your strategy guide. Also, some items do not work as advertised i.e. you'll don a ring of invisibility and the graphics will "cloak" your character, however upon strolling through a dark forect chock-full of enemy creatures you discover they all have no problem in detecting your presence.
Pros Awsome graphics and so big
Cons its so adictive, once u sit down to play u never get back up
Summary this is one of the greatest games ive ever played, its graphics are so good and the world is huge. ive been a big fan of the elder scrolls series and this is the best of them.
