The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Massive World, Looks Great
Having not being a fan of Oblivion or the previous Elder Scroll installments I was a bit dubious when picking Skyrim up. I was skeptical about the poor combat from the previous game, and the fact that Bethesda seem incapable of testing for bugs before the launch of a game but all of my worries were washed away by the massive, beliavable world that is Skyrim.
Combat is much like Oblivions, first person in view with a choice of melee or ranged weapons, or magic. The combat has improved with things like dual casting however it is still far from perfect.
The game looks gorgeous, the character models are a lot more beliavble this time around. The thing that really hit me is how much there is to do, it really is an epic game that will take hundreds of hours to complete. This may sound tedious to some, but once the game gets its claws in you, you are powerless to it's charms.
The bad? Well it is overly glitchy, but for some strange reason the flying horses, the over the top physics on some characters and the whole host of other glitches seem to add to the charm of the game.
This is one you're going to be playing for quite some time.
