A good review

http://www.ripten.com/2011/11/10/rip...yrim-xbox-360/

Quote:
Iíve been incredibly fortunate this season with my roster of review titles. I thought Iíd played the best of the best, but I should have known that Skyrim would make me eat my words. I love being proven wrong if it has to do with technical excellence, and this is a prime example. Skyrim completely absorbed me and made me forget the world I live in. My bias alone prevents me from disappearing into it forever, as I am and always will be a lover of sci-fi and space. But despite all that, despite its fantasy and magic, Iím entranced. It was as though a hand enclosed around my heart and pulled, bringing me into a world Iíd never bothered to understand. An occasional clipping issue or glitch couldnít loosen its grip and I was at its mercy. Everything here delivers. The graphics and sound are astounding, the world lives and breathes and every part of the combat and skill system makes you feel like youíre a part of it all.

This is what we all wanted. Itís so refreshing to see what was promised, delivered, and then some. Sons and daughters of Skyrim, I dare you to embark upon a journey of your own and deny yourselves the same snare that caught me.

This is the future Iíve dreamed of.

So I just popped out to Tesco 24 hour store for BF3 and seen Skyrim on the shelf. I couldn't resist and brought it, £10 cheaper as well.

My quick impressions so far:

1) The graphics suck
2) The UI is even worse
3) It's Oblivion 1.1

The game better be amazing in the long run, because right now I'm not impressed. Feels exactly like the console version only less intuitive due to the UI.

found this on neogaf forum. Interesting that you're not actually getting ULTRA if you click ultra graphics.

Edit: and some more console tweaks for FOV, shadows, removing the compass/map/quest markers

Different time zones or people using a VPN to unlock early, which is what I did.

I'm not using steam, I'm getting my copy from GameStop. I can't find a link to download the patch...

I heard on another forum that its a texture beast on ultra, and it only allows it if you have enough ram, which is 1.7 GB or so? I've seen some screens of over 700+ MB used just on high, so could be true.

Came out here yesterday, Street date break means the national release date bumps forward here. Probably some K-Mart kid put the game out early, thanks to Twitter news spreads fast the the other retailers and publishers who said, yes release it, fine the store who put it out early.
