    I had never played an Elder Scrolls game before so I didn’t know what to expect, but having now logged over 300 hours on Skyrim I can say it is one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had. The vast, open-world environment is visually stunning and accessible (you can go just about everywhere right away). I think I spent the first 30 hours or so just exploring the landscape and spelunking for treasure before taking on the main quest lines. And that’s what makes Skyrim so much fun–the freedom of choice. You can do what you want when you want. If you stumble upon an angry giant, you can engage him in battle or run away and live to fight another day. You can choose to take a side in the civil war story line or ignore it altogether. You can be a thief, a hunter, a werewolf, a mage, a vampire, and an assassin–all with the same character. You can fight everyone you meet or go days without a skirmish. It’s entirely up to you. I also like the choice of gameplay difficulty Skyrim offers. The game is as challenging as you make it. You can coast through on novice or set it higher at expert or master where even wolves in the wilderness present themselves as formidable opponents. I prefer the adept setting but it can be adjusted at any time, even in the middle of a battle.

    Skyrim is not without its problems, however. For me, the infamous frame-rate lag occurred right around the 90-hour mark when the file size grew to 10mb. I was able to continue playing by disabling the auto-save feature. It was annoying to manually save every 5 or 10 minutes but it was a lot better than dealing with the lag. Since Bethesda released patch 1.4 I’ve been able to turn the auto-save back on and haven’t had any major lag issues. Another problem I’ve noticed is that the load times between locations can be painfully slow. Walk into a building, wait 30-60 seconds. Leave the building, wait another 30-60 seconds. Fast travel to another location, wait 30-60 seconds. If something significant is happening such as a dragon attack, the wait can be even longer. The game has locked up on me 10 or 12 times during load screens forcing me to reboot my PS3.

    Despite its glitches, Skyrim is well worth the money. I rarely buy games on the release date but I’m glad I made an exception for this one.
