Rather overrated by the public, this game is enjoyable but has a few flaws: repetitive dungeons and missions, a rather forgettable overarching story, and some awkward animations for NPCs. On the plus side, the music is great, the combat very fluid and fun, and the world truly huge. A nice range of scenery, enemies, and locations make it a must play if you like running around (or riding a horse) up cliffs, down rivers, through forests, and into various cities and towns strewn across this beautiful world.
Oh, and there are dragons. They are quite well animated and designed, and for the first few hours definitely strike a chord of fear into the players heart.
