    Any fan of the original will want this remastered version. I was going to write a very long very detailed review, as I used to be a reviewer like you, until I took an arrow to the hand.

    I cannot explain how emotionally happy I am for this game. The best game I have ever played. I listen to the soundtrack when I read, grade, and study. the song Far Horizon will be the song that my future son, which will inherit my dragonborn blood, will be born with. The song will also be in my funeral as thy lower my casket. Anyway, My wife and I are so excited for this. SO much for making more time for family and friends :)

    While there isn't much new content, this special edition does come with all DLC and mod support. The improved graphics are good but not that much of an improvement. I would highly recommend this game simply because the game is still amazing. If you have never played this game it is a must buy and if you are looking at replaying it you will not be disappointed.

    I love the Elder Scrolls games, and was looking forward to playing Skyrim on current gen. For the most part, this games is perfect. I've had no freezes, frame rate issues, quest bugs or glitches in general. The updated graphics are stunning. My one complaint is the same complaint I've had about the game since 2011. The people look absolutely awful, and the remaster didn't change that. I was hoping with remaster they'd make the adults (kids always looked fine) have more natural looking faces like in Oblivion, but it seems they opted to leave the angled, odd looking features that have always reminded me of the characters in Morrowind. Oh well, the game is still amazing.

    Since I sold my PS3 to get the PS4 I have been itching to get back into Skyrim. This is the perfect way to revisit one of the best games of all time, and the mods add a new aspect to the experience.

    Loved this game when I played it on PS3. Didn't get too far into it before I upgraded to PS4. So excited when this game finally arrived for PS4. Smooth game play and so much to do! It's not like other games where there is one story line and can be finished in a week.
