Great game from Bethesda again. The world is huge and there's a lot to do. The introduction really draws you in. Lots of mods to keep the game giving.

Biggest complaint? Combat still feels like Morrowind. This isn't bad, but it doesn't give the control and feedback I was hoping for.

Probably the best game of this kind, just not perfected.

Best game of the kind since X-COM: UFO Defense and JA2

I'll make this short and sweet because others have detailed a lot of the features. If you like turn based tactical games like the original X-COM, or Jagged Alliance, this is a must buy. Is it perfect? No. Is it close? Yes. Biggest complaint would be that they are releasing DLC for the game. Thus far the DLC seems overpriced for the content. (But I have not bought it.)
