Like a different game. I played the help out of it on 360, probably a couple hundred hours in 2011 and 2012. I just recently built a pc and bought Skyrim and it's like an entirely new experience.

Bought it about two weeks ago and already have 35ish hours logged.

For me at least is like a totally different game, miles better than the console version. The modding community has done some amazing work with Skyrim.

You should definitely get it.

Do you need a high rig to use mods and how easy is it to install mods?

No matter how much you mod it, the melee combat is still garbage.

Other than that, it's a very immersive world that is fun to explore.

Skyrim has a dedicated mod manager:

Grab one of the many combat overhauls and animation changes.
Then melee combat is good.
