I'm playing it on a console, and it's got to be one of the best games I own. It's got some rough edges yes, but it's ambitious and massive enough
that they're easily overlooked. I don't see the load times as all that bad really, but that's partly because I've installed it to my 360's HDD.
Bethesda has created a world with life, some incredible story, and it gives a great sense of adventure. Although, for a game of it's size I wish
there were a little more variety and encounters with hostile people. I feel like the combat is often far between, and it seems like most of what I
spend doing is traversing locations to go find something else to do. It also doesn't help that I've managed to find a lot of "dungeons" and caves
that offer only a small room with little or no challenge.
Overall though, it's a great game that I look forward to spending lots of time with. There are little things that make the game seem so very
immersive, like wandering through the snow capped mountains and seeing wind driven snow drifts forming in the moonlight. That's pretty intense. The
music also makes it that much better, in fact it's so good I dropped $34.95 on the soundtrack preorder!
A major problem I had though is spiders. I hate spiders, and I wandered into a cave with nothing BUT spiders. It was a real challenge to clear it, not
because of the level of difficulty, but because of the spiders! Ugh!!!
