    This game defines epic.

    Posted
    Gurgs

    This is my first review that i have done for a game here, and i think this is the perfect game to review. There are a lot of rpgs on the market and there a lot of rpgs that can be considered top in its class. This game surpasses that. How so......read on......i'll tell you. When it comes to vast landscapes, hours of adventures, a good story, solid game play, and all around fun, this game offers that fully. The dept of the game is deeper than many games and the only game that can probably get close to being as deep as it is, is its predecessor. You can basically do whatever you want to do. You want to explore different cities and villages, do it. Want to smith your own weapons and sell them to earn some extra gold, go for it. Wanna make armor and enchant it so it can better protect you, enchant away! Want to loot and plunder caves, rob villagers, sleep all day, wake up and go on an epic quest for a dog, HAVE AT YOU! In this game, you can literally do whatever you wish. The only boundaries you have is your on imagination. The graphics on the game is phenomenal. Not a giant step above oblivion, but still beautiful none the less. The character models are awesome, and they don't all look alike!!! *yay!* The scenery of Skyrim is very impressive, and lets not talk about the water animation, it looks as if you can literally dip your hand in it and take a sip.....well.....hoping a deer didn't relieve itself in it upstream. The amount of time that you can spend on this game is crazy. There is so much to do in this game that if your new to the Elder Scrolls games, you could get overwhelmed very easily. On the bright side however, they made the interface a lot easier to use now, so if you are new to the series, it will be easy to just pick up and play. The favorites list has to be one of the best new installments in this game that i like. Now, you can select any weapon, armor, or magic spell that you frequently use, and add it to your favorites. To select an item as your favorite, simply click the Y or triangle button and BAM! Now all you have to do is push up on the D pad to select it. The leveling up system has also changed making it easier for new players to get in and get there feet wet. When selecting new perks, don't just focus on one particular tree, move around to the others and see what they have to offer, and let me tell you, there is a LOT to offer. You can basically be and do whatever you want, there is no 'Warrior' class, or 'Rouge' class, you can be a big, strong meat eatin' guy, that runs around all day casting fire spells and using a dagger, or, a skinny high elf with a gigantic battle axe that eats carrots all day. Its totally up to you. I can keep going on about this game, but it would be better if i stop talking, and YOU get to playing. Speaking of which, i'm gonna go play now. and to those who are about to game, I SALUTE YOU!

    I've had skyrim for a while now, but I wanted to wait until I pretty much had experienced everything I could before writing a review for it. I didn't want to fully endorse it only to find something that ruined the game for me. Of course, nothing happened like that. I know you've heard this from a bunch of different "fanboys" a bunch of different times but this game is awesome! I mean, this is a true RPG right here. It's huge! The world is massive and is just chuck full of things to explore. Gone are the times in the bast games when you would wander for miles and not encounter much at all. Now you are exploring caves, ruins, barracks, towns, cities almost constantly. That doesn't mean that you won't be able to just explore and take in the scenery, however. There are tons of places to climb up and see for miles and I would recommend it because this game is very good looking. The world is one of the most finely crafted I have seen in a video game. There are many things you can do as well. There is a pretty lengthy main quest that I found to be very good but I would constantly get sidetracked by my curiosity of my surroundings and people coming up to me to give me a side-quest. There are a handful of guilds to join and play through as well that have had a lot of attention paid to them. Add to this the ability to smith your own armor, create your own potions, etc. and you have a bunch to do in this game. There are also a ton of improvements to the combat from past games and conversing with the NPCs is much more fluid and interesting this time around. It's not perfect. Im sure you've hear about quite a few bugs and glitches in the game. Those are true. The thing is,though, not all of them happen in every single copy of the game. Very rarely are they game-breaking either. They are usually just amusing little things like flying mammoths that float gently to the ground after a while and stuff like that. Things I easily overlooked in that grand scope of the game. If you have decided not to play the game only because of something bad you've heard about it then you will be missing one of the best games to date. If anything you should also read about why people like it and then play it while giving it a chance. You'll probably find yourself wrapped up in it like I did.

    The best RPG ever created

    Posted
    someuser

    To say Skyrim is the best RPG ever created is a bold statement in a genre filled with so many amazing titles. From the original Pool of Radiance, to Baulder's Gate, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Fall Out (just to name a few) I have never played a RPG as beautiful, immersive, and as fun as Skyrim. With well over 100 hrs of game play, fun and exciting side quests, a great main story line, and a massively open-ended world to explore, Skyrim is guaranteed to put a major dent in your social life for weeks to come. Bethesda has improved on nearly every short coming of Oblivion. The characters and graphics are more realistic with a world where you can almost taste the dirt and grime. The process of character creation and leveling has been improved drastically. The crafting / alchemy system has also been revamped to allow for a substantially more fun experience (you can now also forge your own weapons and armor)! There is a much greater variety of weapons, armor, and miscellaneous items EACH beautifully rendered in stunning detail. There is also much more variety in textures eliminating the "every fort and dungeon looks the same". Your characters (and horses) now "stick" to the ground instead of floating / flying. The sound effects and sound track are awesome. I could go on and on over the awesomeness of this game and the huge improvements in brings to the Elder Scrolls series. However, there are a few cons as well. On the Xbox, loading times can be very long (on the PC they are nearly instantaneous). The graphics on the Xbox is also noticeably lower then the PC version. However, the game's interface and control is obviously designed for a console's controller and thus can be a little burdensome with a keyboard (luckily you can buy an Xbox like controller for the PC if you wish). Like any huge and complex game there are bugs to be worked out, some graphical anomalies, and a buggy companion path finding algorithm. Aside from the load times of the Xbox version, nothing close to being a deal breaker. In conclusion, if you like RPGs this is a MUST HAVE game.

    Skyrim has officially topped my list for best game

    Posted
    Silversoap

    For a long time, the number one game on my list has been Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Partly because of it's amazing story, and partly due to the fond memories I have associated with it. When Bethesda released Fallout 3, I thought that first place slot was going to be replaced. However, though Fallout 3 is a close second, its immersive gameplay and storyline were not quite good enough to overtake OOT and the memories. I had actually never played an Elder Scrolls until a friend had me borrow Oblivion. I enjoyed it, but there were too many things that annoyed me with it to really get into it. I had read reviews that a lot of the basic system had been improved with Skyrim, and so I decided to pre-order it. About 10 hours into the game, it replaced Fallout 3 as my number two. About 40 hours in, after having done a good number of side quests and a hefty portion of the main quest, it officially topped my list. The game is so immersive ... many of the characters seem so real, the landscape is unlike anything I've ever played, and the surprises that have come up are frequent enough to keep me on my toes. There may be slightly less humor to this game than one would come across in Fallout 3, but when Skyrim is funny, it's extremely brilliant. The fact that armor and weapons no longer degrade and break on you is one of my favorite changes that Bethesda has made. I understand that some people feel it takes away a certain realism from the game (because fighting dragons and mages is definitely part of my everyday life), but for me, it was just a nuisance. If you are wanting a game with a huge, open world environment where you can choose from hundreds of side quests and literally get lost in the game for hours on end, while having a blast , then this is definitely the game for you. If not, you should probably get back to your Modern Warfare 3.

    One of the biggest games ever

    Posted
    Herobrine

    Carrying on the tradition of TES, Skyrim is an extremely long, extremely well thought out game with 500+ hours of gameplay easily. The scope of skyrim is absolutely amazing, with hundreds of locations, NPCs, quests, and thousands of weapon and armor combination. Another way skyrim excels is the fact that there is a play style for everyone, mages, warriors, berserkers, archers, assassins, spellswords, and so much more. Skyrim is exciting and open right from the start, as you don't have to do the main quest at all, but can play for hundreds of hours without even starting the main quests. In addition to supporting so many types of characters, there are different guilds and factions that all offer their own story and questline. A mage can join the College of Winterhold, a warrior can join the Companions, an Assassin can join the Dark Brotherhood, a thief can join the Thieves guild, anyone can join either the imperials or stormcloaks and fight in the civil war, or, with the new expansion pack, players can play as either a vampire lord or a member of the Dawnguard. There are also other aspects besides questing, such a buying and decorating a home, smithing, enchanting, alchemy and a whole host of other things to do in Skyrim. This is truly the best game of this year, and one of the best ever,along with TES franchise, up there with the classics in sheer amount of gaming. Despite the M rating, I think that anyone 12 and above can play, because it isn't the most violent, bloody, or inappropriate game available. On another note, multiplayer may be a good thing for this game, but it doesn't have, despite good co-op and multiplayer opportunities. I also recommend a decent headset for full immersion, as this game has a lot of dialogue and arguably one of the best soundtracks currently. (See recommended products for ideas)

    Just one warning...

    Posted
    AceDread

    This game is absolutely fantastic, and I haven't even played it yet. It's almost hard to believe this game is almost here, seeing as how the last Elder Scrolls was released in '06. The reason why people get so up in arms about this series is because of the history. Bethesda made their first Elder Scrolls in the 1990s, and it was a huge hit. While it was quite buggy, all games pretty much were at the time(except Bungie's Marathon, which was the first online game to have voice chat.) My absolute favorite Elder Scrolls game would have to be Morrowind, simply because the glitches in that game made it that much better. See, in all Elder Scrolls games, you have the option of being able to make your own spells.(Generally, this becomes available much later in the game.) However, the stronger the spell is the more gold you have to pay to create it, and you have to have enough mana to cast it. In Morrowind, you were able, with glitches, to get as much gold, health, mana, or any kind of stat you wanted. At one point, I created a spell that made me levitate and increased my speed by like 1000. I was flying across the map so fast the game couldn't load the textures fast enough for me to reach them. It was so awesome, but at that point you can't play the game anymore. If you had reached land, you would either die of impact or you'd run so fast you'd just be in the air again. My only warning for this game is this: While it's very easy to learn, if you were buying this for someone as their first game, they will not appreciate it like avid gamers, simply because they have to learn about video games themselves while having to learn about a whole new world called Tamriel while doing so. it can be a bit much for a first time gamer. Not to say that this game is insanely difficult, but you can make it that way if you felt so obliged. There's always a difficulty bar in the game options menu, you can turn it to very easy, which makes NPCs health lower tremendously and are very easy to kill. Or you can make it nearly impossible, which is pretty much impossible. NPCs have so much health you'd have to be knocking at them for 10 minutes to kill a heavy armored guard. Also, this series has had, easily, the most replay value of any game I've ever played(Except World of Warcraft, for obvious reasons), multiplayer or not. I'm not saying you won't get bored of it, as it is human nature to get bored of things. But with 300+ hours of gameplay, there's a lot to go back to. Hell, it's 2011 and I haven't done nearly everything in Oblivion OR Morrowind. These are timeless games, ones you'll tell your kids about.

    Very frustrating

    Posted
    Argolich

    The story is good, just as in Oblivion and the characters are very well defined but the game play is very frustrating. Even on the easiest setting (novice) combat is ridiculously difficult. I'm at level 15 and get killed by a bear. I move from location to location and get attacked by dragons that just appear...and you can't run away from them and I can't figure out how to defeat them. I get jumped by 3 or 4 bandits and no matter how high my combat skills are I get hit by magic and lose half my health points in one strike. I don't get it. I lowered the difficulty as low as it could go and still at level 15 my warrior is a frustrating embarrassment. It could be me I grant you, but I thought Oblivion was much more fun. I've saved at a place where you can't proceed any further until you kill a frost dragon. I even have two companions with me. It always attacks my character and ignores the companions even when they repeatedly hit it with arrows and spells. I've tried to get past the dragon using every weapon and spell combo I have and i've died 13 times. I'm nearing the point where the frustration is sapping any joy out of the game. Leveling up does next to nothing to improve your abilities. The dragon I get. But running into one every 30 minutes out in the world is a serious pain when you can't escape them or kill them. Getting attacked by a bear and getting killed 3 or 4 times before you get a lucky critical hit on it just ain't all that much fun after 30 minutes. Maybe others are having an easier time of it than I am but I'm losing patience. My sword hits do pathetic damage even when I use a power attack. My stamina is massive yet I run out of steam after 3 or 4 swings and can't even run away. I don't remember Oblivion being this way. I'm probably one of the few reviewers who is somewhat disappointed by Skyrim. Its difficult to enjoy the great story when it is frequently interrupted by stupid and unavoidable deaths and be forewarned...the game has many, many load points and the load times are ponderous. There are places where you have to load to go into a building and then suffer another load if you go into some of the interior rooms. Ponderous.

    An Overall Amazing Game

    Posted
    Nerevar

    I've had more fun playing Skyrim than I've had playing any other video game in a long time. First of all, this game is massive. I have sunk entire weekends into this game and am still nowhere near completing everything. The gameplay is solid. The leveling system has been simplified from the previous games which makes it more accessible to first time players. Using magic in combat is both easier and more enjoyable than it was in Oblivion. The scenery in this game is breathtaking. Coupled with an incredible soundtrack, it is very easy to just start exploring and completely ignore whatever you were supposed to be doing. The graphics on the 360 will be considerably less than on the PS3 or a PC, but I'm currently playing it on the 360 and it hasn't bothered me in the slightest. The storyline is surprisingly decent. A big issue with Elder Scrolls games is that they pack so much stuff into the game that some parts it don't get the detail they need. I also think it has a more mature storyline than Oblivion. This isn't to say the game is perfect. You have to save often because the game will crash on you. Luckily, it only seems to happen at loading screens. The downside is that you will be spending a lot of time at loading screens. Its also very easy to bug out a quest line if you cleared a dungeon before the quest sends you there. My biggest problem with the game though is that I'm having so much fun playing it that I've ignored the fact that Christmas is rapidly approaching and I have friends and family to spend time with and buy gifts for. If you have the time to get lost in a very detailed and immerisve world then I definitely recommend it. If you don't ... maybe wait until things slow down first.

    xcharx96

    This game is beyond anything you'll have ever played. If you even minimally like RPG's, don't even think, just... buy this game. Its outstanding. The graphics are amazing, the story is intriguing. You can change the difficulty so it's not super hard. The music is epic and makes you feel as if you are in the game. It's simply... breath taking. I bought this game on midnight the day it came out and haven't left my house all weekend. Your character is exactly what you want it to be, it's perfect. If you've played Oblivion and are skeptical about buying this game due to bugs, things you didn't like about oblivion, etc., buy it anyways. I had been anticipating this game for such a long time, and everything that bothered me about Oblivion is changed in Skyrim. I've been playing the game nonstop, and I've only seen 2, maybe 3 bugs, as you would with any game that just came out. There are unlimited sidequests and unlimited dragons. I already have 75 hours in this game, and i'm not anywhere near done or content All in all, this game is honestly the best game I've ever played. It is everything I wanted in a new game. I feel like such a loser, being so obsessed, but I'm proud of my nerd-ness. <3 LOVETHISGAAAMEE. I would recommend it to absolutely anyone.

    Amazing Game

    Posted
    Becca00

    I spent a lot of time playing Oblivion and had high expectations for the next iteration of the Elder Scrolls series. I was not disappointed. Everything about this game is a quantum leap forward from previous versions. Graphics: The graphics in this game are amazing. The world of Skyrim is not just visually stunning, it actually feels real. Everything from remote mountain tops, to marshy glades, to rocky tundra, and city environments are all rendered with exquisite detail. Each environment has its own vegetation, animals, and overall look and feel. Parts of this game look and feel exactly like the terrain of the Rocky Mountains or Pacific Northwest. Gameplay: The best part of this game isn't necessarily the story or graphics, but the way in which your character can interact with the world. You can capture butterflies, catch fish, kill bears and elk, and mine for ore. With the right ingredients you can cook different dishes, create potions, smelt ore into ingots and then into armor or weapons, and just about anything else imaginable. In addition, there are multiple excellent storylines to follow (the Companions, the Thieves Guild, the Dark Brotherhood, etc.), with the main quest being the destiny of the Dragonborn to challenge the Dragon God, Alduin. And if you don't want to go straight through the main storyline, there are plenty of side-quests to keep you busy.

    ElderScrollsAddict

    When I heard that Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was coming out in 2011, I was so pumped and every single day since i found out i've been in shock and awe on how complexly great this game will be. If you look at the very best RPG games most of them are made by Bethesda. For instance; All of the Elder Scrolls games since Morrowind have been game of the year, once in 2004 again in 2006 and hopefully again in 2011! Bethesda started working on this game immediately after Oblivion and have taken their sweet time in making this game near FLAWLESS. If you are a Modern Warfare fan and really like their multiplayer than this game is probably not for you, considering there is no multiplayer mode. I have so much faith in this game and if you are interested in buying an amazing game then buy this one! I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! The only advise i have for the h8trs out there, is to go on YouTube and watch all of the videos that have been put out for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim especially the game play ones

    Dragons, enough said.

    shadow55055

    For fans of elder scrolls, or even fallout, this game will come to you as a no brainer. The gameplay and graphics have undergone a huge overhaul, still not up to par with some newer games, it at times can be looked at as art though. You will look out into a night sky and beautiful mountains, or climb a mountain against a snow storm. Gameplay wise, it has defintely been more fine tuned. Lock picking takes it's cues from fallout as opposed to oblivion which had a not so great system. In this game buying a house in a city has become much easier to obtain early on so you can store your extra junk you don't want to sell. Character animations have become more fluid as well. Probably the coolest and most annoying aspect of the game is the dragons. The are like mini cutscenes. You know when they show up due to the earth shaking, and music. Not to mention npcs, including creatures will gang up on the dragons. The annoying part is the dragons are often easy to kill compared to smaller creatures you fight, and they show up at the worst of times.Like during a sneaking mission to steal something. all in all this is the best elderscrolls game to date. so defintely worth picking up if you want a game that will last forever.

    Simply, what RPG's are supposed to be

    What can I say that hasn't been said. It's the game of the year; game of the decade. Game of my life. I am in my 40's and an original D+D nerd from the first generation of the game. When RPG video games came out, this is what I always hoped they would eventually be like. The world is massive, detailed, and unique. Walking across the territory you will not see any pre-rendered backgrounds, the detail put in this game, just for background and ambient sounds, is amazing. I highly recommend getting a set of Turtle Beach x41 headphones. The 7.1 surround makes the game so much more life like; from birds and bugs chirping in the background to the sound of a dragon flying low overhead from behind. I am going back and starting over again from the beginning because I got the headset after I was already at level 30. If I have any critisizm for Bethesda with this game, it is that the art is so blatanlty a rip off from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, but whatever, that was an amazing story as well. If you have a casual interest in RPG's you will love this game. IF you love RPG's and the D+D world, you will be losing a lot of sleep over this game.

    In November of 2011, my friends purchased this game. For the next few weeks, all I heard was "Dude, have you done this quest?" or "Hey, what armor are you wearing?" Then, my best friend got it for Christmas. He told me that he would stay up late playing this game, because it is just so great. Finally, I bought this game. I now understand why my friends were so engrossed in it. The plot, while fairly straightforward, is very non-linear. You may explore the world of Skyrim without fear of having to go back and do that one quest first, or have to receive that one item. You can go around and conquer caves, defeat dragons, and slay monsters all you want (in addition to leveling up and filling out the ridiculously developed skill tree). The one problem I've had is occasional lag, but this decreased when I installed the game to my X-Box's hard drive. In short, this game is AMAZING, and is a must buy.

    I am a bit biased towards RPGs. I've always loved them, no matter how boring they might seem to others. This was my first time playing an Elderscrolls game after years of being a diehard FF fan so it was a nice change. The graphics aren't the best but the open map does have some beautiful scenery to look at. Some of the quests are so much the same, but some of them throw in quite the curveball. There is some challenge and time involved in leveling perks but one can find ways to exploit some of them and there are some pretty neat ones that I've found myself striving to acheive. The storyline is alright - at least it's easier to interpret the events compared to an FF game - I just thought that it got a little bit redundant after a while with everyone blathering on about the Dragonborn. I did enjoy the fact that I could go back to continuing the plot whenever I felt like it and I could just peruse the world as I pleased in the mean time. Overall, I enjoyed the game thoroughly. It can be very addicting and I would definitely try other games within the Elderscrolls line after having played this one.

    Great real life action game full of legends

    Poorsquirrel

    This game is a great game for people who have patience and love to kill in a first person camera or 3rd person, it is filled full of legends, marriages, and a whole world to do what you want. The Dragon born has a power that noone else has; the ability to absorb a dragon's soul and learn Thu'ums also known as shouts that can kill or push back an enemy. You can have a wife or husband, the whole plot of the story is based in the early years of the vikings and shows remarkable graphics with the right T.V. AKA use an hdmi cord. The best thing about this game is the action and choices you make, spend money on horses,jewelry,food, potions, weapons, spell books, and so much more! This game sadly is not an online game but for no online play it is amusing to most people. There are different places to go and so many factions to join, Dark brotherhood, The Legion, The Storm-cloaks, and more. You also can become legendary creatures such as Werewolf(AWESOME) or a Vampire(SUCKS>LITERALLY)!!! I recommend if you love hours of addictive play you should buy this great game!!!

    This game is just like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and so much more. The graphics have improved significantly and the sound effects make this world amazingly realistic. This is one game that you can invest hundred of hours in just exploring the world of Skyrim and with so many different character choices or decisions/paths to choose from, this game seems almost impossible to complete without investing months of play time. Plus, the story line is very interesting as there are multiple plot points which can change the dynamic of the story. This game can also be addicting and it is hard to find a stopping point as the more you play the more you get immersed in the world of Skyrim. While all this is very good for the game and it does almost deserve game of the year, it is plagued by a few glitches that has annoyed me from time to time. However, with updates from Xbox live, hopefully these issues will be fixed with software patches.

    * If I affend someone, dont take affense, its great you like it, that is awesome! And no need to get your nerdy pms in a bunch, move on... Now that I got that asside* I was playing skyrim till... Took an arrow to the knee... No This is a really good game for the first 3 weeks, but then suddenly you take a fall off a cliff and the attention to the game is gone. Same *** ugly creature bleeding in the middle of my sword is the only pleasure after awhile. Right when the interest stopped, I got MW3, and bam! back into the actions of random, new, and random things! So if your not taking 90 mg of ritalin, then move on and choose MW3... If you do not have A.D.D. I imagine Skyrim will be awesome for you! And if you accept the fact, reading is the main part of game play in this game then your good. - Also... The loading screen between 1 door to another to another cave etc, to another part of the map + when using the xbox 360 = *** slow loading times!!! Not even that, like super snail slit my... slow! - Good Luck! Cheers!

    Before the release of Skyrim, I had neither heard of nor played any of the elder scroll. I noticed there was a major hype going around that the much anticipated Skyrim was soon to be released. I decided to do a little research about what this game was all about. I liked what I read, so I picked the game up a few days after it was released. At first, I absolutely hated the game. Coming from many RPGs (MW3, Black Ops & BF3 etc) I was not used to this type of gameplay at all. It was a whole new experience to me. After playing for a couple of hours I fell in love. The gameplay is amazing. The graphics and amount of detail is stunning, unlike anything I've seen in a game before. The audio is no different, majestic music is played throughout the game. I enjoy just walking around in the game, looking at the scenery and listening to the music. This is definitely one of the top games that has been released for Xbox360 as of now!
