Awesome game Posted by: from: Atlanta, Ga on If your into deep RPGs this is for you..I hear people saying this is comparable to the Fallout series. I would have to disagree. Skyrim is way better, the random animal and dragon attacks are well organized. The companions you can pick up along the way are a great touch. With multipe ways to travel the world it keeps the game pretty well paced. huge replay value considering character creation freedom and quest options. There are a few minor gameplay flaws, such as stutters in graphics, and characters sticking in place both npc and main characters. The questing menu could have been more organized considering the amout of quests that are availible. It's very neatly impossible to separate main plot and side quests. But overal it's an awesome game playing experience, flaws and all. Well worth the purchase

One of the best games out there Posted by: from: Grand Rapids on This is by far one of the best games out right now. You can spend so much time doing random stuff. The graphics are great. The detail is extensive. There have been a few times during my game play that I had to stop and look around to enjoy the scenery. There is always something to do and you can easily get side tracked doing one thing and wind-up several hours into the game and not made an progress to your original objective. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys RPG's or any of the Bethesda games. The only down side I had with this game was that after a long term play it started to lag out and freeze. But I hear that has been fixed with the newer patch. Other than that its a huge time sink. Its hard to just get on for a few mins without mins turning to hours. I can guarantee you get your moneys worth via the time ratio. I spent more than 100 hours playing this game.

Beyond Amazing Posted by: from: Manchester, United Kingdom on It's hard for me to give a game a 5/5, but this one deserves it. First off, you might want to say goodbye to your social life before buying this game, because it'll be gone. Not only is Skyrim's main story pretty lengthy, all of the side quests, lone wandering, places to discover, ect., will add about 300+ hours. Skyrim is huge, with over 300 places to discover, it'll take you quite a bit to find them all. Which is great. The graphics are beyond beautiful. This game is designed to be looked at as a whole. That being said, the mountains, grass, trees, ect. are all very detailed. There's 70 NPCs, so there's plenty of people to talk to/get quests from. There's thousands of items to loot, and you can look at all in full detail. The favorites menu is very well thought of. And the sound is exceptional. The soundtrack plays in the background throughout the whole game, matching every sequence perfectly. If you've heard a rumor about the PS3 glitching about 30 hours in, it hasn't happened to me. They've patched it. But just in case, you might want to delete all your old Skyrim saved files to save room. There really is no way to review this whole game. But, for your sake, but it. 5/5 easily.

New depth keeps Elder Scrolls on top. Posted by: from: Eugene, OR on Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an epic game that will satisfy and leave you skipping dinner to play more. Compared to Elder Scrolls IV, Skyrim boasts a great cast of voice actors. Drop a sword you don't want and wait-someone will come along and pick it up and offer to return it to you. Not all hostile enemies are aggressive, a giant may be just as pleased to walk past as to bludgeon you with his club. With rich colors and graphics, character depth, new spells, new dangers (such as giants and dragons), Bethesda has brought to life what is sure to become a modern classic in gaming. Once again, they set the bar for the industry and are THE trendsetters of first-person RPG fantasy. 10 out of 10

One of the best games of all-time Posted by: from: Ann Arbor, MI on This game is easily one of the greatest ever made. For the PS3, only Uncharted 3 rivals its value. I have put in around 30~ hours and have been relatively surprised by how well it has performed. For a game thats detail goes down to the dirt at your feet, I have only seen one instance of freezing and a couple lags. Do not hesitate to buy this game, unless you are worried about productivity. It is so good, you will undoubtedly be thinking about it in class or at work and staying up late into the night and likely early morning discovering new places and taking on new quests. The amount of content is staggering, and you will be inclined to make multiple characters to try out different skills and combat types. This game is a must-buy for any type of gamer.

Another Great Open World RPG Posted by: from: The Colony, TX on Skyrim was created by Bethesda, which is the same group that produced Oblivion (Elder Scrolls 4), Fallout 3 and many others. I have Oblivion, but am more currently familiar with the Fallout series and can relate a lot of the feel of Skyrim (Elder Scrolls 5) to that of the Fallout games. Skyrim is a first person RPG that basically places you in ultimate control of your destiny. In the beginning you'll chose a character class (each come with a small benefit of some kind), but these classes don't limit you to traditional Mage or Warrior type RPG skill sets; you develop the skills that you chose to play the most. The more you use a particular skill (such as two handed weapons), the higher the level goes and the more options you have to spend attribute points within the skill. As your character gains enough experience, the leveling system works much like that of Final Fantasy 13; you spend attribute points on particular skill upgrades provided the skill level is high enough. The graphics are stunning and I'm enjoying the game quite a bit so far. If you're someone who got burnt out on Fallout, then at this time Skyrim may not be the game for yourself. However, if you're a fan of RPG games and you enjoy the Medieval type setting with a game that has free roaming in an open world with multiple possible endings, then Skyrim is certainly the game for you. I'd also say that if you're new to these types of games that Skyrim is very intriguing and that you may get hooked fairly quickly. If you pay attention to all of the side quests that the citizens within each town tends to give you, it'll be easy to "chose your own adventure" by joining various groups and to create your own story-based ending. To add to all of that, I believe that there are 50 PS3 trophies available to unlock in Skyrim, so there are quite a bit of ways to potentially enjoy the game. In closing, there aren't many RPG games out there that I won't try, and if I had to give this game a numerical rating, I'd probably give it a 9.5 out of a possible 10. I don't regret paying full price for Skyrim and I have a good feeling that if you're on the fence about it, that you won't either.

had same problem with other reviewer about the fix Posted by: from: Virginia Beach on this game was going along great til I downloaded the pacth for it. Now the game freezes up constantly and loading takes forever sometimes. game has pretty challenging until you start leveling up but fun enough that it is not frustrating. hopefully they make a patch to fix the last patch!

Greatest Game Ever! Posted by: from: Tennessee on I have put around 55 hours into this game and it is completely amazing. I have only done about 1/3 of the main story line and still having many many side quest to do. So you get your money's worth out of this game unlike other games where you beat it in 8 to 12 hours. Also I updated the game and it worked just fine for me. Didn't have a single problem with updating.

This Game is NOT Broken Posted by: from: Winsconsin on I have put in 40+ hours into this game and it has only frozen once. It is true that loading screens get a little bit longer but only by a second or so. Also frame rate does sometimes have a tendency to drop during intense action but it is very minor and rare. This game works and is one of the best RPGs on the market

Sublime story and overall an excellent game. Posted by: from: Arlington, Virginia on This is one of my first games and I'm incredibly pleased with my purchase. This is likely a contender for game of the year, and winning it would do the game justice. It's graphics for a free roam game are far better than expected, the main story is great so far, i haven't made much progress as a whole although i've played a copious number of hours simply because there are so many side quests to do and they just stack up, my goodness. I read on IGN that there are 300 hours of gameplay just on the main quest and the fact that the side quests take up some time aswell means that there will be an enormous amount of gameplay if you explore. The shear number of things you can do and improve your character with are out the roof. I could keep rambling on, but if you buy this game i can be sure that you won't regret it.
