I've had the game now for about a week on the XBOX. So far, it's quite a trip. The graphics are simply outstanding! However, for me, the story is a bit discombobulated....a series of disjointed mini-stories. I'm also not one who likes to be set on a quest that gets interrupted by someone with a snakebite, or a maiden in distress...which, if you don't interrupt your quest to take care of this poor soul, it counts against your status. This bothers me especially when I'm at least half way to my current quest location and the location where the emergency needs to get is across the map in the OPPOSITE direction. Sometimes, I'd just as soon shoot em and move on. j/k But, all in all, the game plays well, looks great, and, I'm hoping the characters become more "fleshed out" as the story proceeds.
