My first impressions of Skyrim
Well, I'll start off by saying I've never been much of a fan of the Elder Scrolls series. So I really wasn't expecting to like Skyrim, but I wanted to at least try it. I must say, it was pretty good.
Now I'm not going to rush out and buy a copy, lol. I'll wait until it's dropped in price.
The controls were a little frustrating, but I would say it's due to my system. It just seemed like I couldn't get the look sensitivity adjusted properly. I'm sure when I buy it for the 360 in a year or so I'll enjoy it much more.
The game looks amazing! Everything was so pretty. That was my biggest problem with oblivion. The environment looked good enough, but character models looked like crap. Everything looks gorgeous in Skyrim, which is good, because at least everyone will look good while displaying No Emotion At All, which was my second biggest problem with Oblivion. Don't get me wrong, the voice acting is marvelous, and I really haven't played far enough to form a fair opinion, but I wish the level of emotion conveyed in the voice acting was displayed in character animations. If I'm about to have my head chopped off, I'm not likely to put my head on the block compliantly while pleading with the executioner for my life.
Anyway, as I said, I'm not a big fan of the series, I didn't expect to enjoy it, and I was presently surprised. I didn't enjoy it enough to pay full price, but when it drops to $30 or $20, I'll pick it up.
