I just picked up my copy today from gamestop. It is my first time playing a game from this series so I feel a little lost. I just made it to Whiterun and spoke with the Jarl. So far I am enjoying the game, game play is good as well as the environment.
I really like the idea of being able to switch between 1st and 3rd person views. I personally prefer to play in 3rd person, but with this game I can switch to 1st person at any time to get a closer look at things.
Don't have a whole lot else to say about it since I haven't played it for very long.
