The fact its a Bethesda game alone is reason enough for me. They haven't let me down yet.
I've not played it either, but agree its quite interesting looking. I'll certainly be picking it up for the PC in the near future.
Seems its somewhat open, if Im understanding it correctly.
I did find this review by ElderGeek that does a very good job of going over the mechanics of the game.
Not sure if it will help your decision any or if you've seen it but ... have a look. They done a good overall review here IMHO.
