I can't believe they promoted this game as being an Oblivion killer!! The voice acting in this game is more pathetic than a childs anime show, it was just so forced out that you couldn't believe a thing they say. The story had potential but ended up being so vague and empty. Essentially there is 1 component to the plot, find 5 pieces of some mystical thing. Once I'd levelled up sufficiently I found all 5 pieces within a matter of maybe 2hrs. The armour is useless, once you get past leather and into heavy armour you can forget about dual-weapons, archery and swimming. Humanoid enemies are stupid and weak and offer no challenge. The only really strong enemies are these giant bug things that are insanely hard to kill. Although you get to stack items (add 2 of the same item to make a stronger item) it gets frustrating since there's like 30 variations on each item and the slightest difference will prevent them from stacking. Horse riding was impossible to enjoy, the steering was delayed, stopping took forever and fighting on horseback was not as effective as the tips suggest. Given the time since Oblivion was released I expected this game to have improved on the environmental graphics… I was disappointed AGAIN
The one thing I did like about this game is the wide variety of environments, from the typical forests to deserts, bamboo patches and the usual volcanic desolation you'd expect from stereotype orcs.
My advice, avoid this game altogether. Go buy Oblivion GOTY edition and get 200hrs of play out of a great game with none of the issues this pile of crap suffers from.
