Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
My first and basic impressions so far:
- The sound and music is great. The voice acting also seems much improved since Oblivion.
- The distant landscapes looks great. The overall artistic look of the world is pretty good.
- The individual textures aren't anything special. Things like swords, armor and other items up close don't look as great as you'd expect. I saw better in the Witcher 2.
- The PC version is just a lazy console-port with apparently no optimization for a PC. The menus are a chore to navigate because it seems like using the mouse hasn't been fully integrated. That's completely unacceptable. Once again, gamers will have to rely on mods to play this game in its full potential.
