    The defining RPG for Xbox 360

    The Elder Scrolls series has been the flagship RPG for the past generation of consoles (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3), and especially on the Xbox 360 it has proven to be one of the best games for the console, regardless of genre. Skyrim is the 5th installment in the series, the 2nd on Xbox 360 (Oblivion being the 4th overall and the 1st on the 360), and while gameplay is not necessarily greatly improved over previous installments, the graphics certainly are. Bethesda are known for taking time with game development, and Elder Scrolls is always worth the wait of three years or so between installments. While the main campaign can be done relatively simply, that's not the main attraction of this game. It's possible to play 100-200 hours or more and still have things to uncover. There were bugs and glitches when the game released, especially on the PS3, so I would recommend getting the 360 version if you have both consoles. But I've always waited for the "Game of the Year" editions like the Legendary Edition to get the game, since the DLC packages are included, and the price of the complete edition comes down more quickly now than the launch edition did a couple years ago. Highly recommended!

    Saw a price tag of $30 so i went to the cashier and he told me it was $65. I wanted to see how it was considering i had the original for the ps3 first and it was terrible.If anything was wrong i would trade it back. I got it. Played it and it runs smooth, not perfect but way better than it did on the ps3. Textures aren't as bad as people say but if you want a pc quality game then get a high end pc. The soundtrack for the game is awesome and it will immerse anyone who plays it. The story line itself is a bit short but has a lot to do considering it has 3 dlc that come with it and has a ton of side missions. I found myself wandering than doing any missions. If you get this game i encourage you to roam and try to discover places. Leveling up isn't that bad either but once you hit level 35+ it will be a little bit slower. Skill points can be spent on whatever section you want and it each skill has an in depth tree to upgrade whatever you heart desires. This game makes you feel powerful but at times the dragons can get annoying. I recommend this game to anyone who likes exploring vast open world games, swords ,magic and feeling like a total bad_A**.

    Satisfying

    It's difficult to ever feel completely satisfied with a play session of Skyrim. There's always one more pressing quest, one more unexplored tract of land, one more skill to increase, one more butterfly to catch. It's a mesmerizing game that draws you into an finely crafted fictional space packed with content that consistently surprises. The changes made since Oblivion are many, and result in a more focused and sensible style of play, where the effects of every decision are easily seen. Featuring the same kind of thrilling freedom of choice The Elder Scrolls series is known for along with beautiful visuals and a stirring soundtrack, playing Skyrim is a rare kind of intensely personal, deeply rewarding experience, and one of the best role-playing games yet produced.

    I'm a mature gamer chick and I love this RPG! The detail is amazing from the scenery to the characters. This is a game that you can play for hours, set aside and play something else for a bit and come back to Skyrim and just pick up right where you left off. It's like coming home to old friends. I especially like the DLC Hearthfire. It was so much fun gathering the materials and building my own home(s). The battles are just hard enough to be fun on the normal mode and the dragons are awesome. The only thing I would wish for is more personal interaction and more varied conversations with the other characters. After you've played for a while the followers or family members saying the same thing over and over gets a bit stale.

    This is a GREAT game. The storyline is a little tricky in some parts if you don't know what's happened in the game's past, but it clears up in the later stages of the game, somewhat. Be careful though! This game DOES Glitch/Freeze Randomly forcing you to turn your system off and then back on to continue gameplay from where you last saved. You might want to check to see if there are any updates/patches that fixes this problem online. Aside from the glitch/freezing this game is GREAT. It has the original Skyrim Game, along with the Add-On's Hearthfire, Dragonborn, and Dawnguard! This means, that you have the ENTIRE Elder Scrolls V Series all on TWO Discs!

    A game you can really get into

    My husband and I both play this and we both enjoy it. We are at different gaming levels (he's a bit more advanced then I am) and there's something for both of us and we can take it at our own pace. My only wish is that he and I could play simultaneously. Since he's more advanced, when we play the same game he sometimes likes to help me along on quests or give me stuff he's no longer using, but I guess it's better that I have to make my own way in this game and learn on my own.

    I avoided buying this game for a long time because I knew it had the potential to take over an unseemly amount of my free time. About a month ago, I finally broke down and bought the Legendary Edition (on sale!) and it turns out I was right. You get to spend hours picking flowers, catching bugs, and finding mushrooms. If you jump into the water then you can even swim and catch fish! Once you reach your carrying limit you can travel to a town and you get to sell everything at different shops!

    Honestly, I'm just now getting started with this game in the overall scheme of things, but it is more than meeting my expectations. I just completed another highly-rated RPG, and a friend of mine who is also into RPG's recommended Skyrim because he knows that I like games that offer a lot of exploration, strategy, and character-building. So far, I have not been disappointed. I'm looking forward to a few hundred hours of entertainment yet with Skyrim.

    Back to basics

    I've been a fan of TES since Arena. It's nice to see Bethesda getting back to basics. From the start you see and hear Bethesda going to the roots of what makes TES great, from the epic musical score to the breathtaking graphics. Everything is exactly what it should be. Thee are some minor quibbles, but that's all they are.

    I have been slow to transition to the XBOX platform, as I am a Nintendo man (myself). When i recently acquired a XBOX 360, I struck by the number of good titles out there. This is one of them. It doesn’t disappoint either. That being said the adult situations in this game are a little above my son’s age, so I will have to well this game to myself (until after he goes to bed).

    ...sizes that don't matter at all. Skyrim basically World of Warcrafted hundreds of thousands of gamers who previously had no interest in either this setting or genre, and there's something to be said about that. Replayability is pretty much at its peak with this game, the Fallout titles being about the only things that come close. Dig in for a long stay, it's hard to put down. Ever.

    It is sometimes hard to get into RPGs simply because they seem too long and boring for anyone to feel as though it is worth the play. Skyrim has surprisingly found a way to appeal to both sides and separate the arbitrary thought of RPGs as slow or long and boring games. There is something to do everywhere; so kuch so that you forget the main quest of the game.

    This game is one of the best games on the 360 console hands down. I am pretty excited to have ESO when it comes to Xbox One. I originally had this game but my kids had damaged the disc so I had to go out and buy another one, this one came with the map packs which was a huge plus if your really into the game . I would buy this version over the other one especially if you're getting the map packs.

    The best game of its type

    Skyrim is one of the most engrossing and flexible adventure games that I have ever seen. The character choices, options and environment are extraordinarily diverse. It is impossible to become bored with this game. The graphics are excellent as is the sound. This game give the most "bang for the buck" in an adventure game that I have ever seen.

    A nice upgrade from Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion

    I was a big fan of Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion and Skyrim is a nice upgrade. The graphics are better, smoother and more detailed. The world is still expansive with nearly endless side missions, tasks and interactions to be had. This xBox 360 game does have very long load times at certain points which breaks the game play but outside of that, I'm very happy with my experience.

    I have been looking for that game that is just the right fit for what I like, Skyrim is it. I know I will invest quite a bit of time to this game. No rush, looking forward to the time to develop my character. Best Buy had the game delivered to the store ahead of schedule, i was treated very well. I will definitely use ship to store again.

    I would highly recommend Skyrim to any gamer who enjoys open world games and lots of content. I purchased on Xbox because I do not have a PC gaming rig, however, if you do have powerful PC I would urge you to get it on PC that way you can play at a higher resolution in addition to having access to thousands of great mods to improve the gameplay experience.

    This is the complete game all in one package. I really like how all of the additional content is in one place. You really can't go wrong with this edition. If you loved all of the other games in this series...add this one to your collection and start playing today! Just be warned...your social life will be over!

    Well, my son begged me for this when we were in the store. Apparently, he had played a friend's house and loved it. I thought it was going to be another game to collect dust, but not so. He's been playing with it non stop since he got it. so obviously it was a good investment.

    I purchased this for myself seeing as I always wait to purchase the downloadable content for this special. As always, The Elder Scrolls has an amazing story. The graphics are better than the previous titles. The game does lag and freeze quite frequently, but only after hours of constant gameplay.
