I was a big fan of Oblivion and the 360 Fallout games, and I was very excited by the prospect of a bigger, better time-sink of an RPG. I wasn't disappointed - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is unbelievably immersive with plenty of customisation options and a huge world to explore. With the addition of dragons appearing at random when you're travelling through the country side, the thrill of discovering new places and foes lasts for days. I'm still quite a long way from completing the game, but have managed to sink dozens of hours into side quests while barely starting the main storyline. Now that the latest patch (released March/April 2013) has been released and raises the level cap, it's a great time to pick up a budget-priced copy to see you through the cold Spring! If you are a fan of RPGs in any way you owe it to yourself to pick this up.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game is amazing! It's the best Role Playing Game I have ever played. There is literally hundreds of hours of game-play here. There is so much to explore in this vast, detailed world and with the promises of large Downloadable Content coming from Bethesda and the new Kinect update, there is even more to do!
The Elder Scrolls have been known for great scenery, RPG tactics, story and gameplay mechanics. After the release for Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, there were no other RPG that could match up against it in its time. Until now. Skyrim have finally been released after months upon months of waiting. Does it deliver the goods? Gameplay have been increasingly improved over Oblivion, and have fixed the stiff combat. Both sword fighting, magic and archery. Now it's more fun, with killing blows and great spells that will make you feel powerful. It's all up to you in which category you want to progress in. When you level up, you can choose between Stamina, Health and Magica. Stamina makes your character more lasting and can run more and swing your sword more. Health basically increases your max health. Which is an important asset for survival. Magica increases your magic indicator, which allows you to cast more magic. There are also Perks in the level system, where you unlock new mechanics for your fighting, flirting or thieving. It's simply great! The audio is one of the best I've heard from a video game. From the peaceful Forrest walk to intense fighting with a dragon. It still doesn't top my personal favorites, but comes pretty close. The NPC voice acting have also been improved. Non of the boring conversations with meaningless NPCs like we got in Oblivion, now it's more humor and dramatic, which it's suppose to be. The graphics are intense. It doesn't match other graphic monsters out there like Battlefield 3, Crysis 2 or The Witcher 2. In my opinion, that doesn't matter to be because Skyrim is HUGE! Sure we'll see some texture pop-ins from time to time, but that's not as often as in other FPS games. The scenery blew me away because it looks so "nordic". Yet I myself are from Norway, which looks beautiful in both in-game and In real life. There's isn't more I can say about the game, only that it does deliver the best RPG experience of all time. If you see this in a shelf at your local video game store or finding it at websites like www.thehut.com. Get it. It's more than you could ever bargain for!
Last night, I completed the main plot line for Skyrim. That's the "finished" part. But is the game finished? Hell no. To be honest, if I wasn't reviewing it, I wouldn't be anywhere near finishing the main plot line. As it is, I was sidetracked so easily by things along the way. What's this cave? Who are these people? Investigate the burned building? Sure! Join the Companions? You got it! Figure out what's up the Eye of Magnus? No sweat! But I had to grit my teeth and ignore so many fascinating and interesting things in order to grind out the main plot just for the sake of reviewing. So yeah, I "finished" it. But I'm definitely planning to be playing it for many, many more hours in the future. In all honesty, now I feel like I can sit back, relax, and let the game world sink in on my own time. Bottom line: This game is great. Fantastic, even. I'm not afraid to use the word "phenomenal." It's my pick for Game of the Year, and it didn't look like anything was going to wrestle that title away from Portal 2. The only gripes I was left with were the occasional bugs (a bit too many crashes to desktop for my liking) and a rather clunky interface (found myself opting for the Xbox 360 controller over the mouse/keyboard combo). Aside from these ultimately tiny inconveniences, this is one of the biggest, boldest, and best games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. And right now, I still feel like I've hardly scratched the surface. Bethesda hit a huge home run here. Skyrim is epic, fantastic, fabulous, and it will drown you and your social life in it's country filled with life and dangers.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is great. The world is huge, filled with temples, enemies, camps and secrets to be found. Compared to the last part, Oblivion, the graphics have improved a bit and the character system (skill, levelling) is a lot better. I just don't like the way the skills are spend, using some oddly working star-sign map. The difficulty is for me just right, there are easy, normal and harder monsters. Nice puzzles to be solved and every corner looks different. What I miss the most is any sort of multiplayer experience. I know asking for co-op simultaneous play is too much, but a simple chest like those in Diablo would have been so great to share the loot with my family. I highly recommend this game to anyone who loves to play RPGs in an open world. But even if you like to be taken by hand, the "arrow" guides you through the main quest.
Five years after of its predecessor in the series, comes The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It has been such a long but deserved waiting. The king of RPG gender presents stronger and more alive than ever. With new stories and improvements in all aspects. The main story, for its part, makes us start as a prisoner that has been captured by the Imperials on the border with Cyrrodil's province. Suddenly, we began to understand the background of the civil war in which we participate, and the return of the dragons. On the one hand, we have battles and missions in order to capture every one of the castles of the enemy side. On the other hand, epic clashes against the beasts of the sky. Dragons are one element to take into account because they break in the villages without warning. They fly through the lands of Skyrim. They can pass by or they can come down and attack the people of the village. We can found them everywhere. Killing them make us stronger, increasing our Dovakhiim skills (dragon skills). Once death, we can take its scales and bones to make our weapons and armors. Skyrim has a lot of main missions, in addition to the countless secondary missions, that have been worked excellently. Certain aspects of the game have been improved about Oblivion. Archery is now much more satisfactory. The magic is truly spectacular. Melee combat has taken a step forward with the introduction of dual combat. Now you can create more spells, potions, weapons and armors. The effort they put into every detail is huge. Now, you can find more travellers and wild animals while exploring; in fact, we can see some insects, rabbits or even fish like salmons in the rivers that we can capture. Now we can sprint using our stamine. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is full of different posiblities! The map is smaller than Oblivion but it seems bigger. The landscape is built with elements that make possible a rough map with height differences. We can find mountains, gullies and waterfalls. Bethesda has paid particular detail to the architecture of each corner of the game. Every city, cave and dungeon has its own style, giving great variety to the world around us. Few negative things should be highlighted, like artificial intelligence and the fight on horseback. Look where you look, Skyrim is one of the biggest Game of the Year candidates. It is an epic work. The game features a new graphics engine and the best graphics on today. Skyrim is able to transmit that sensation of an epic story bordering on perfection recalling, at times, to the Lord of the Rings, with such an amazing Soundtrack and the phantasy-look style. In the golden era of Video Games, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the bests. Bethesda Strikes Again!
Skyrim is the next chapter from the elder scrolls. Oblivion (The elder scrolls IV) was a big succes, a huge map, a lot of gameplay hours and a great story. We can expect much from skyrim, a great story, 120 gameplay hours and of course an improvement. This time they focused a lot on the perks and skills. In oblivion you were able to train certain skills and choose different classes. However, in skyrim they improved this a lot, with perk trees. As the makers of fall out 3 they used their experiences in perks for Skyrim. I'm really exited what this game has us to offer, but I'm sure it is something great. Dragons, magic, swords, bows, beatiful landscapes and a great story line, all of this combined in one game.
