The story driven gameplay adds a lot of immersive moments, hooking you into the game from start to finish. The game is so heavily scripted that almost every individual you come into contact will have something for you to do or a side quest for you, in other words.
If you are a fan of fantasy RPGs like Skyrim and Oblivion and have played the earlier installments, you will surely love this game as the new RPG that sets a new benchmark for the new generation. Its gameplay and story are so rich and diverse, though it’s aimed towards a more mature set of gamers.
The map is so large, there are so many places to explore, and each town and city is filled with hundreds of story quests, side quests and missions. You can traverse the large open world using your friendly steed and there are other options like travelling via boats or using the fast travel option, though on the initial part, you’ll surely love walking on foot or on your steed and watching the wonderfully created scenery and graphics.
The graphics are breathtaking, it’s realistic textures and facial expression makes it worthy as one of the best game of the next-gen consoles and PCs. It has stunning visuals, great effects, immersive models, great physics and of course, great hair simulation. Combining it with the wonderfully crafted story and great world, you will have a game that is greatly immersive.
As for the interface, everything is easily accessible. It’s very easy to use and it’s not the kind of interface that’s usually cluttered and somewhat depressing at times. The map screen can be easily accessed and the inventory as well as the crafting window makes the game mechanics less bogged down.
The only issue with the game is the loading times, especially when you fast travel or if you are on a large city. But setting those small things aside, you get a wonderfully and masterfully crafted fantasy RPG that can be lined as one of the best among its genre.
