Summary: I am a lover of all three consoles and pc. But i have to speak the truth. I got this for 10$ from a friend and decided i have all the GS on 360 and beat it on pc 2 times, So lets get it for ps3. I do not regret the 10$. I just regret that the ps3 version is so bad compared to its competitor. This game came out when ps3 could not make a multi platform game that would run as good as the other consoles it was out for.
Pros: This game is pure rpg gold. I must admit that the 3rd ES was a lot more rpg like than this game. But this game is an rpg for the masses. Can be harder by raising difficulty and easily can spend 100+ hours looking for every single ruin and tavern.
Cons: It is on the ps3 and thus it lags a whole lot. This was a game that has multiple problems with lag and glitches that are irreversible unlike its console competitor. I prefer pc over all three consoles but if I had to choose.... stick to the 360 for this game.
Summary: An overall good game but too many bugs. I only gave the Game of the Year edition 2 eggs because the glitches are irreversible due to the creators complete lack of support by their choice. I'm looking to buy the non-GotY edition even after buying the $60 version. I like it that much. A way around the "bloodgrass glitch" is to complete the vampire quest on the non-GotY disc before you start "The Shivering Isles" or "Knights of the Nine" quests.
Pros: This game has pretty good graphics and loads of gameplay. With all of the quests within the game you can keep busy and play for a good 70+ hours. It all depends on how deep you go into the game, searching for items etc.
Cons: Game of the Year edition has too many bugs... If you become a vampire you are unable to cure yourself due to a "bloodgrass glitch". I have contacted Bethesda about this and they have no plans to ever release any patches or fixes. If you want to play the game, get the regular version. And be sure not to download the Shivering Isles expansion or else you'll encounter the same "bloodgrass glitch".
Pros: It plays great for a while. I was completely enthralled.I was totally engrossed before it became unplayable.
Cons: The 2 characters I have played ended up at some save point as vampires which you cannot get out of because of buggy software. A while after that, the game ends up stuck with no way to continue. Basically it locks up when loading a saved character. There appear to be no plans to offer an update to fix these well known problems. Get the pc version and skip the ps3 where you cannot get patches. I've had over a 100 crashes (hard lockups) when playing. Turning autosave off...
