    I didn't know what to really expect of this. I was hoping it'd be similar to the Witcher 3, but in reality it's a bit more like Warcraft. That's not a bad thing; it just involves a bit more work with grinding to complete quests. This product is the exact same as the Special Edition...but better. Not only do you get the special edition version of the game, but you also get a felt mask and steel book. The mask is weird, but the steel book is nice. It was actually cheaper to get this version in store (with GCU) than the normal Special Edition one. For ~$25 I was pleased, even if I won't put as many hours into it as others have/will. You definitely get your money's worth.

    Its not a bad buy. the game is great and if can devote loads of time to it, phenomenal. This special edition come with both the advertised steel book and a standard xbox one case which the game comes in. So you can chose if you want to keep the game in there of leave it on display., the artwork on it is nicely done. The hat is a bit of a let down, I thought they were giving a legit beanie with horns and eye holes, but no, it low level fabric like its been made ti be a little kids Halloween costume, still amusing though. Its a good buy but not necessity.

    Best game ever REMASTERED

    My favorite game of all time just got better! The graphics have been improved and are more crisp and the game runs even better than ever with less load times. Also if you didn't purchase it before, all dlc is included plus the addition of mods, which is awesome . The only bad part is having to start your story all over again but it was well worth it to dive back into Skyrim all over again. Skyrim is by far one of the best games ever made and has a ton of awards to its credit so a remastered Edition is great news to Elder Scolls fans.

    Truly remarkable upgrade to one of the greatest games ever. It simply shines on the new TVs. Be sure to get some mods that correct a ton of buggy things --- Bethesda totally supports them and many are of a quality better than the original!!! Incredibly fun. Now, if only Bethesda and other Xbox One game designers would take Microsoft's lead and make FPS games "play anywhere", and allow a co-op on another Xbox One or PC (as GoW4 does). To play Skyrim with a friend, just one, would be awesome.

    I had previously played Skyrim back on the Xbox 360. I easily logged 100+ on this game and beat it multiple times. Honestly one of the best video games of the 360 generation. This remaster has definitely captured the beauty that Skyrim has. Vast, lush land with extensive views and draw distance. I highly recommend it to any RPG fan out there as this is a remaster of the already great game!!

    This sequel has surpassed our expectations. Skyrim was an excellent game, and this one, its successor has captivated, nay, incarcerated both my son (16 y/o) and my beautiful, gaming wife (34-ish)...appeals to all imho. I'm afraid to play it (though I've enjoyed watching way too many hours as they embarked, struggled, pondered, conquered and ultimately emerged victorious) because I am certain that it will be all-consuming, in the best possible way ; that sums it up for me.

    I originally played this game when it first came out, and now that I played the HD remastered, I can tell the difference on most things. Especially the lighting, shadow effects, water, rain, snow and so on. They all have improvements, but nothing over the top. I don't think it's worth $60, but more of a $30 to $40 sell, at least. Still one of the best games I've ever played, and I know I'll have even more fun this time around, revisiting this beautiful world.

    MUST HAVE

    This game is a must have for anyone, whether a previous fan of Skyrim or not. BUT... If you were a Skyrim fan on an old console, this game is a must have. Same game, yes, but the capability to add mods directly from the console greatly improves the overall experience. Add entire DLCs, items and weapons, and even tweak the characters around you to improve their interactions with you. Best remastered game I've played, hands down.
