bioshocks are good. skyrim is meh..

Summary: so bioshock is cool and all, but i have some complaining to do about skyrim... my complaints are mainly two: -the combat system: there is no locking on, no slowing down of the screen as your view passes over an enemy, which makes it rather difficult to keep your focus on a specific badguy in combat. i got used to this, but it never felt right to not have any way to 'focus' on an enemy.
Summary: When I first played Elder Scrolls, I played Oblivion and absolutely loved the game. Skyrim on the other hand is an ok game for me. In general Skyrim lacks focus and direction in completing the main goal. Throughout you're quest your log will be littered with so many side quests that you'll lose focus of your main objective. Second, the leveling system of A.I.s should be readjusted.
Game has a lot of potential...3 1/2 stars, due to technical issues and design choices

Summary: I don't see why anyone can really blame the load times and glitches on the hardware. I blame it on the developers lack of commitment to making a great game...um, great. The graphics, as well as, the depth of story and faction quests are wonderful. There is actually so much historical information in the game that I have quit reading most of the books, just to save time. Many of the characters are entertaining or funny. The game map is huge.
Summary: Ok so I'm giving it 3 stars because I had a few issues and no one was a real help but my dad when it came down to a few issues 1- you have to delete all your data except character you can use that but I deleted every thing 2- came quick who I ordered it from 3- it runs in different graphic vanilla than regular edition so you do have to delete all but character data took time to find it all 4- you have to I stall the dlc first and pick the language or the dlc won't be in...
Summary: It's let down by the constant loading screens. You spend a LOT of time looking at the game models that appear on the loading screen. It would be MUCH better on faster equipment. If you want to play Skyrim, I suggest getting it on PC, or not at all. I became frustrated and stopped after around 10 hrs of play time.
Summary: Sounds fun doesn't it? I bought this game reluctantly, hoping that after the game had been out for quite some time, that all of the problems the original PS3 version had been fixed. Nope. Well, it seems like my experience was a little better than others' back then, but at the same time, I felt like I was only playing the game for half the time I was on it. The loading times in this game are very patience-testing, and I'm a pretty patient person.
Summary: This is a great edition for the game especially to those who haven't actually bought the previous versions yet. There's simply so much to do in this game that you can never be bored. Sadly, what kept me from enjoying this game was the constant freezing that I've experienced throughout my in game travels.
Summary: I have had to put the game down for a while due to wide spread problems. If Bethesda gets the patches correct, this will be a great game. 3 Stars, because it has potential, but at this time unplayable on the PS3 once your character reaches a certain level/save file size
Pros: Good game, builds on ES IV / Oblivian. Good Story. I bought this game for my PS3 11/11/11
Cons: Broken on PS3. Hangs, Crashes, lag. All platforms have quest breaking bugs as of this writing (12/20/11) with patch 1.3. Read the Bethesda forums for updates and see the issues. See the Official Bethesda forums for the PS3 are at forums.bethsoft.com/index.php?/forum/182-playstation-3/
