I expected a long entertaining storyline and experience.  My younger brother finished the main story before me so i know that its much shorter than I hoped for.   great skill and combat.  Everything was great but after all the other reviews I figured it would last longer.   The main story *SPOILER* after you hear about the elder scroll you go to winterhold colege kill dragons blah blah blah. kill alduin all done. *SPOILER ENDED*  There is literally TONS of side quests including Stormcloaks, Thieves Guild, Companions, and Empire questlines. 

It was overall worth the buy and the time to play the game.  But im not quite as hyped up as everyone else.
