I know there are a bunch of people on here who loved this game. I've tried about 4-5 times to get into it, and as soon as I get through the intro sewer/catacombs part, I completely lose interest. :\
When does this game pick up? Last time, as soon as I made it outside, just about everything in the world kicked the fuckin' shit out of me. I'm going to give it one more go.
Chris, that EXACTLY mirrors my experience with Oblivion. Made it out into the open world, some guy got off his horse and destroyed me for seemingly no reason. I quickly gave up after that, but I could never get a feel for the combat when I played. I ended up lending it to a mate, not really caring if I got it back, and I didn't! I think they enjoyed it a lot more than I did.
