As much as Oblivion rocks and looks amazing. We're still seeing Bethesda's weakness when it comes to animation dampening the experience.
Overall the animation is poor, but the real salt in the wound is the 4 legged animals, in the E3 footage they simply turn around on the spot - I had hoped this would be fixed, but after seeing new footage showing horses. It's not.
Kameo showed what good animation can do for a game - it makes it look believable and real, seeing a horse turn on the spot while doing the regular walking animation blows the experience.
Bethesda please hire some more animators to patch up animation as much as possible for the first expansion. It's just gutting for such an awesome game to have such a tiny flaw that sticks out so much.
