First introduction to the game your plunged straight into the frozen world, as you get control of your character you start to learn how to play the game and the various actions you can preform, all in a stunning starting sequence.
As the game rolls on you get to branch out and kinda do your own thing, you can explore as you like, quest when you want, put things off till the bitter end, it doesn't matter really, the game waits for you to be ready. Early into the main quest you fight your first dragon and I won't spoil it but I will say its excellent.
There is more incentive to delve into dungeons, with word walls being hidden in their depths for you to uncover and become more powerful. The game play, well I've been playing for days and I still have a long way to go. The fights are brilliant. The leveling system starts you out easy then gets challenging as you get up the levels.
The game has so much depth; so many quests. Dragons respawn at their lairs, they appear at random in the wild and other creatures also respawn over time. Not having to choose a class gives you freedom to level whatever skills you want to play with and be rewarded for it. Sadly the level cap is 50 otherwise we could have had some very healthy adventurers
Oh and dragons level with you, so as you get stronger, the dragons remain a challenge to bring down.
Overall, I'm still VERY satisfied with this game! I highly recommend it. A stunning piece in the Elder Scrolls game series. The guide book is also a good companion for this game you will think is well spent
