The first few days I was just amazed by this game and everything about it looked rosy colored. Now after plenty of ingame hours it's time to be a little more rational about it. Here's my ratings;
World / graphics: 10
Simply the most beautiful, immersive and astonishingly realistic sandbox gameworld I ever roamed around in.
Quests and npc's:
A little disappointed here; the side quests can be awesome but the two major questlines which I played through weren't that long or special. Hoping the ones I haven't played are a bit more compelling. NPC interaction and most conversations are no improvement over Oblivion and sometimes I had the impression Oblivion was better in handling choice in conversations. Also I liked the haggling minigame which is gone now.
The difficulty is much better than Oblivion: Skyrim is more unforgiving (apart from dragons).
I love what they did with crafting, enchanting and radiant quests but I'd like more non-combat related gameplay alternatives. Also decorating homes is much harder because item manipulation is less accurate compared to Oblivion. Character development is much more interesting this time around.
Some great stuff in dual wielding / different uses for different weapon types / double-spell effect, etc. Some not so great stuff like pretty bad AI and NPC pathing.
If it weren't so awkward and buggy to use with the mouse it would have a better score: I do like the perk-galaxy and the minimalist design though. Also they need to fix remapping keys.
Epic sound track, great effects.
Amazingly stable and runs like a charm. Huge improvement over Oblivion.
All in all: amazingly immersive gameworld but there definately is room for improvement for Bethesda and the modding community.
