    Skyrim is one of the greatest games from the last generation of consoles and here it is remastered for the current generation. This particular edition comes with the DLC included as well as a few extra goodies exclusive to the Best Buy version. It comes with a nice steelbook for collectors and also has the Dragonborn mask, which is a neat addition. It's not amazing quality, but for the price, it was a nice toss in item. As for the game itself, Skyrim is an amazing and expansive open world that is further enhanced by the fact that mods are now available on console. It is still one of the best open world games out there and this remastered version looks and runs great. I'd recommend it highly to anyone that missed out on it before. For veterans, I don't think there's anything really new in here that's worth a second purchase.

    Loved the Dragonborn Bundle Special Edition

    The game itself it outstanding, with even better visuals than before. This special edition has a few accessories in addition to the main game. First, it provides a steel case. What is really neat, is that this steel case does not replace the original case. I hate it when special editions provide only the disc with no case or a worse paper case without the original case. This provides the steel book case in addition to the game coming in the original case. In addition, this bundle comes with the signature Skyrim Mask. It is a pretty good sized mask. At first, I wasn't sure how it would fit me, but it fit me just fine without stretching it out. I have a lot of hair, and my head isn't small, so this was a relief. The mask is fabric, with the horns being thicker and more rigid. It is a really nice bonus for the bundle. I fully plan on wearing it as I play the game.

    With Bethesda's current trend, I wouldn't be surprised if this is prepping the way for the Skyrim: Toaster Edition. They are releasing a Skyrim for everything nowadays. Anyway, It's hard to go wrong with this game. The remaster has a nice bump in visual quality compared to the original PS3 version. Also, the Dragonborn bundle is nice with a felt, horned helmet and a very slick-looking steelbook. However, this bonuses aren't worth the original markup over the regular edition unless you are a collector that must have them. I picked this up on clearance which significantly narrowed the gap between the editions and made it a no-brainer at that point.

    This comes with Skyrim Special Edition, a steelbook, and a fuzzy hat. I was able to pick this up cheaper that the Special edition on it's own. If you can then this a steal. Otherwise I would not pay too much above what the special edition is going for. I don't see the hat being appealing to most, but there are some who would really like the steelbook. The game is the same game from the ps3/360 but with all the dlc and a slight graphical boost. It is worth mentioning the box that holds all three items was pretty beat up. Some people are bothered by that. However, the contents had no damage.

    From time immemorial, Playstation users have had to put up with glitchy performance in various version of Skyrim. Whether it be player models missing heads or previously killed dragons that teleport into various areas, haunting you, it was always one thing or another. Finally, these problems are a thing of the past. Now, is it perfect? No, because even though this new PS4 version allows us to draw on mods, those mods are limited due to Sony software policies. Sony, stop shooting yourself in the foot and get over your paranoia. Mod greatness is a discrete button press away and these guys are scared to death of pirates. Great game, could be perfect!

    Not much more can be said about Skyrim that hasn't already been reviewed before. I jumped on this special edition just this past November, and it's not only one of the longest games I have ever played, it's one of the most immersive. Every expansion pack is here, adding hundreds of hours of gameplay, AND there are PS4 mods that you can easily download from its menu system that changes, expands, and refreshes the game like it's the first time you've ever played it. This is one game that should always be in your collection, because you can go back and replay it a multitude of times with reach run through feeling vastly different from the last.

    Dragonborn rules again!

    Having purchased the collector edition on the PS3 back in the day, needless to say I was excited to roam the holds of Skyrim again as the Dragonborn. Best Buy's edition includes an exclusive steelbook and a Dovakin mask along with the remastered version of the game. It includes all of the previously released DLC along with slightly updated graphics. loading times are still a thing. That said it's still Skyrim and can easily consume large chunks of your time without you noticing. Still a great game! And a great deal at BB too!

    If you’ve never experienced Skyrim, the Special Edition is certainly an adventure you can’t afford to miss. It still includes many of the original version’s bugs, ugly character models, and weak combat animations, but the memorable world benefits hugely from improved lighting and effects. There's also some appeal here if you've played before and want to relive Skyrim with the current generation systems, but you'll be best served by picking up the Xbox One version over the PS4 because of superior mod support. However, there’s no new content on the disc to entice you back if you’ve already played all the DLC, only a new coat of paint.
