Overrated - blinded by the dazzle

First off, the graphics and sounds are dazzling. Simply amazing. The towns and scenery are beautiful. But that's it.
The gameplay is mind-numbingly boring. It's not even remotely challenging, and it's not interesting at all. Even ignoring the boredom, the lack of realism was terrible. You could go to painstaking lengths to commit a crime in a dark corner with no witnesses anywhere nearby, but the law will immediately be alerted to your actions and come running. The storyline was "meh" - I wasn't especially motivated by it, and I'm a big storyline buff. Combat was so boring and easy - I barely even needed to look at my monitor.
All in all, I can't find anything redeeming about this "game." As a screen saver, it'd be fantastic - tons of fantastic scenery to look at. But gameplay? Pretty much non-existent. I'm truly baffled as to what all these people experienced to make them rate this game a 10. One of the worst, most boring games I've ever played. I wish I had spent my $50 somewhere else.
