They've really dumbed down the game for broader audience appeal unfortunately. The flavour is still great but this is very much RPG-lite.

How so? Compared to Morrowind or Baldur's Gate, sure, but compared to Oblivion or Fallout 3? No.

The perks mean actual character choice and defining. There are actually choices to make in the game now, with opposed factions and moral decisions. Also the two-hand mix system means more dynamic weapon choice and tactical options.

Compared to Oblivion this sucker is an 80's RPG where you have to draw maps.

Indeed. There's just so much to do and explore around the world, I don't see how it can be considered "RPG Lite." Just because it doesn't require a spreadsheet and 500 page manual doesn't mean it's dumbed down.

I've always preferred skill based systems, as opposed to standard level based systems, so I'm loving it. The UI may be a little dumbed down, I don't particularly like the inventory and vendor design, but the game and world itself are amazing.

Did you see the manual/help guide!? Thing is huge. Check amazon.
