It barely runs on the ps3!1 Posted by: from: on Be warned! This game might same like a great deal at a nice, low price... but it runs like garbage on the playstation 3! I hear they are putting it on playstation 4, probably because they know about this. If you don't have this on pc or wait for the current-gen release you'll be disappointed. I was so hyped up to get this after hear a friend who has it on pc talk about it. Everything is simple soooo slow and choppy. Every time you open something it freezes for a second to display to you what you have just picked up. Oblivion ran much better than this. Personally, I'd have taken a downgrade in graphics for the ability to run this game smoothly as it should be!!! I also heard after looking into it more that the game freezes and crashes fairly frequently on consoles, so you'll have to save it constantly. It's a shame it ran so poorly because I really wanted to get into it. I ended up recently buying witcher 3 on ps4 instead and that game runs as it should and it much, MUCH better in terms of combat, depth, and everything else. I'll do a review for this again for the ps4 version once it's released but I urge you.... stay away! There are much better RPGs on the ps3 that run much better than this. I've never played a game that ran so poorly on playstation 3. Save your money and put it towards something better.

The ultimate open world experience5 Posted by: from: Kingsport on Easy to get lost in the world created this game and is definitely one of my favorite open world RPGs. However, on the ps3 there are some issues with framerate drops and feels a little glitchy at times. If you're playing on consoles, I would recommend the Xbox 360 version. For me at least, it ran much smoother. Music is incredible and you will never run out of things to do in this game.

Very Good4 Posted by: from: on Great game. A very long game. The main quest is always surprising and challenging. One draw back is the menu to the items, magic, etc is tricky to get to when you are in the middle of a skirmish. The first person/third person button should be separated more as I was constantly going into one or the other making it confusing. Other than that is a great game.
