Any good combat mod?
Is there any mod that makes the combat not seem like you are clubbing enemies with a bat? A mod for example introducing stab/impaling-animations or making the opponents react like they were actually cut by a sword? Maybe something like deadly reflex for oblivion? I'm not too choosy, I'm happy with anything that alters even a little bit of the vanilla combat.

Dude, the enemies run around with arrows embedded half way through their head,

It's Skyrim, get used to it.

Oh, yeah, there is a mod that introduces new 'stabbing' motions, but It looks awful man, and the weapons aren't alligned correctly in the character's hands etc...so, I'd just look for another game if you don't like Skyrim.

-_-
The thing is that I've already played the story through twice and I'm searching for something to motivate me for a third playthrough...and the thing that annoys me most is the dull combat system (don't know why it didn't annoy me as much in previous elder scrolls games, but in Skyrim it really strikes me hard^^...maybe because I was expecting some improvement before it released).

Well okay, fair comment...

Hmm, to be honest, once you have played all the others...you will really come to appreciate just how good Skyrim is in this respect. Sure, it will always be a little hack n slash but apart from the odd kill-cam, thank GOD there are no cinematics ...like some other games I can think of. <shudders>

Seriously, I recommend that if you are bored, go play Morrowind or Oblivion...then Skyrim again. You'll change your opinion of the combat physics then.

I'm currently replaying Morrowind :)
btw: I liked the cutscenes^^
I guess I'm more forgiving towards Morrowind considering its age. Despite that it still is kind of an old pearl :)

@Eldred Jonas: Jep, I mentioned that in the opening post, I think^^

I am sorry I can't remember the name of the animation mod. It is on the nexus.

I am playing with more challenging environmental mods. Frostfall mainly, making the cold something to have to take into consideration...this is a good mod to spice it up :)

It doesn't alter how combat works, but makes it far flashier and more enjoyable.

Deadly Combat or Duel Combat Realism might be what you're looking for. However, I thought both get rather tedious after a while.

There's also Skyre, which is a complete overhaul and alters ALOT of things. If you're using many mods like me, you may want to stay away from it. It's script-heavy and still has several compatibilty issues.

I advice you to go through the list of most endorsed combat mods on the Nexus and make your own picture: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/searchresults/?src_order=1&src_sort=0&src_view=1&src_tab=1&src_language=0&src_cat=77&src_showadult=1&page=1&pUp=1
