This game should have been fantastic! however it's far from it, in fact it's a real bind to play and gets more frustrating the further you progress.
My initial thoughts on this game were of a very polished product that was worthy of all the hype it received, and after the previous Bethesda PS3 outings (FO3, FO NV) I thought it looked like PS3 users were finally being gifted a finished and bug free product, how wrong I was!!!!
As you progress into the game bugs and glitches become more prevalent, from small ones that have no gameplay effect (i.e. animals (without wings) suddenly flying and floating around the screen) to ones that completely break the game, for example (but not limited too)... quest givers getting stuck in a diaglogue loop thus not allowing quest lines to further, items dissappearing, if you visit a dungeon and clear it without first being given a specific quest to go to that dungeon it can break quests later on in the main quest lines, but worse of all the Lag/freeze issues all after you pass the 40 hour mark render the game unplayable - I daren't even travel to whiterun anymore for fear of the game freezing yet again!
But to top it all off Bethesda are even worse than this bugged product, there is no information or support for PS3 users and the patches that are arriving (slowly) fix minor issues (like the bookcase bug) rather than game breaking major issues such as bugged quests/lag.
Save yourself the hassle and don't buy this until PS3 gets patchs that make it actually work!
