Skyrim is a great RPG made by one of the best RPG creators of our time. It falls flat in some areas that make an epic adventure forgettable. Many people have said that Skyrim has the vastness of an Ocean and the depth of a kiddie pool and it is true. That does not say this game is bad the combat is Elder Scrolls floaty but I never had a problem with it. Leveling is very cool because rather than killing enemies for exp your must level up certain aspects of what your going for i.e. blocking, light armor, archery, etc. It makes you as the player choose how you want to play rather than going down a determined path at the beginning. The game falls flat in that whenever you do a quest the npc do not recognize your triumphs like in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Other than some minor bugs and various other non immersion things it is a fantastic game.
