This game has gotten ye olde marmite love it or hate it response, and I for one vote a resounding love.
Personally, I like games with a rich storyline, and it doesn't come much better than this. Firstly, you get to create your own character, which is always a good thing, and each choice comes with a different story. Also, not only can you choose your own responces to the events that take place during the game, rather than watching cutscene after cutscene, but those choices effect the future gameplay.
I've read reviews of people complaining that it is boring, and I cannot see how this is possible. There is so much to do within the gameworld, almost too much, with the additional downloadable/expansion pack content. Its got bloodshed, romance, and a very satisfying conclusion. The achievements are also obtainable, if through a couple of playthroughs - though considering each time you play the storyline is a little different, I don't see this as a problem, but as a bonus.
