Didn't have any bugs so far, so perhaps some of the claims are inflated OR I'm just lucky. So I'll put down a small list of pros and cons so far.
-Combat system makes more sense than Oblivion.
-The new smithing system.
-Spells feel more useful.
-Dual wield system.
-A vibrant and detailed world, absolutely gorgeous.
-New graphical style overall is much better.
-Plenty to do.
-Skill system (yes Foolwolf, I actually like it)
-Dragons...seriously, come on!
-Obvious console roots, annoying menus.
-Some voice acting could be better.
That's about it for now.
