I have been playing this (no joke) for a year now and i still havent finished it.
This game is so big even Mr T isnt bigger!! Its vast and its full of life!! Normally in most rpg's it can be a litlle manotinous to get from area to area but this is teaming with some really weird creatures too!!
Graphically this is what set the bench mark for all other ps3 games and i ve gotta be honest, som eof the **** being released at the moment, it still does!!
Definetly worth a hd tv and 50 inches (??!!), put it by the patio doors in your conservatory and you ll mistake it for part of your garden!!!Thats how good this looks!!
Its 1st person, its got horses to ride, its got lush fields and creatures, its got great views, you get the picture!! Some of the frame rate CAN appear and i notice some minor "pop up issues" and some graphical annomalies such as texture failure on some rocks etc but you see that now in some of the later games!! Its not an issue and ive played all, ps3 version better than all other (though pc very close!!). This wont spoil your game though, you ve gotta know what your looking for to notice!!
The usual "clanking" of swords and ambient noise is the norm here, typical crowds of people chuntering. And it has patrick stewart in it (star trek next generation's captain!!). What more do you need!!
Gameplay is standard, but a nice touch i found was the horse riding, though cumbersomly middle paced at times, definetly a nice touch!! (as you can see im not a rpg fan and i still loved it!!!)
You ll face many opponants not just with swords, bow and arrows, knights, all sorts of animals ect.. But here you have so much space to explore, its jus vast!! Again if you played morrowind its similar, in the way you interact with others and keep a listed item inventory which can accessed at any time!! Chat, clank swords, run off, kill something else, rob them and that ll do!! And you will face armies sometimes.
Today's developers should speak to these guys, its beautiful to play and see, if a little sluggish at times when there's a bit going on. I cannot stress enough how good this game is, even if your not an rpg fan, i believe this warrants enough to keep you interested.
The only other game that impressed me this much was mass effect!! Yes they're can be minor issues with frame rates, texture failures (blockiness or clipping!!) but this shouldnt effect your gameplay. It'll eat your life up with over 200 hours gameplay (if your that sad!!) and with the game of the year edition even more missions and bonus stuff, ps3 has extra content and a extra race too.
Just buy it and for about 15 quid it ll blow your arm off with its explosively cheap price, never mind wall mart for value, 15 quid for 200 hours of sticking really big swords into evil's big red ass!! beat that!!
