The long loading scene
This game would have to be one of my favourites .The good graphics make it feel like your really there. it has a great story line. lots of diferent types of wepons and armour. its got losts of things to do like pick lock pick pocket make potions ect the only baad thing is it takes quit a while to load, bbut then thats probily cause its such a good game
Too dark to see anything. Frustrating game flow.
This game is more frustrating than fun. I don't know why the makers of RPG's seem to think that people like games essentially equivalent to guessing the right number between 1 and 65 zillion. Yeah, if you stick with it long enough, you'll eventually figure it out, but it's just NOT FUN.
I have two suggestions for RPG enthusiasts considering this game:
1) Get Morrowind instead.
2) See #1.
It's a decent game but not one that would fit my game play style.
Found that the user interface leaves a LOT to be desired.
Had a hard time switching weapons.
Until I found the Gamma and other graphics settings the environment was way way too dark.
The characters in the demo are way too "blocky".
Maybe if the interface had combined the attack mode and items view mode on ONE screen it would have worked a lot better for me.
The feel while in attack mode was very strange... one moment I'm hitting the enemy the next I'm looking at the ceiling.
In my humble opinion... This game just isn't quite "read y for prime time".
