The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review


The horses' hooves clop rhythmically on the cobblestone. The wheels strain underneath the weight of the wagon you are in. You open your eyes to a snowy morning. Your hands are bound. You have been caught trying to cross the border into Skyrim by an...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review


Skyrim is a labour of love. That much is clear from the first time you see the distant peaks and hear the melodic notes as the game draws you in. There are few open world games today that feel as complete as Skyrim does – everything you see and every...

Skyrim is captivating. It will swallow you up and trap you within it’s world, in which you could happily carve out an entirely new existence. Not only is it adventure on the most epic scale but the attention to detail is astounding – revealed through...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is built solely on the idea of discovery. In the very beginning you have no idea who you are, where you are, or why you’re aboard a carriage filled with condemned prisoners. All you know is you’re an outsider, and once...

Once you’ve found the parameters that Skyrim works with, it’s not difficult to play by its rules, and even enjoy it. There is a huge, jaw dropping world to discover at whatever pace you desire. Along the way you’re free to author your own story,...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the big, bold, and beautiful sequel you hoped for and is sure to bewitch you for countless hours.

Immense world stuffed with varied tasks to perform ; Dragon battles are a blast ; Lovely art design capped by some beautiful, atmospheric touches ; Enjoyable battles that you can approach in a variety of ways ; Lots of compelling, self-contained...

Bugs and performance issues frequently disrupt the immersion ; Friendly AI is often more of a hindrance than a help

As for standard spells, they come in the usual schools of magicka: destruction (zap skeletons with sparks!), conjuration (summon a giant frost atronach!), alteration (light the way ahead!), and so on. You can even dual-wield spells, going full-on mage,...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review [Xbox 360/PS3/PC]


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of my favourite games in years, which is why it?s often so frustrating. We?re all aware of Bethesda?s technical hiccups: they seem to infuse every game the company develops, scratching away at otherwise remarkable...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Preview


Perhaps what Bethesda does best is immerse players in rich worlds that afford the opportunity to explore freely and let the game experience emerge naturally. In Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the feeling of finding one's own path through such a world seems...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


The Good: Incredibly expansive adventure loaded with quests, sidequests, and sidequests to sidequests, plus tons of equipment and other cool stuff. Good leveling system. The Bad: User interface is a little clunky. Some bizarre gameplay moments. The...

I recall when I was in graduate school, something like 17 or 18 years ago, playing The Elder Scrolls: Arena. There was a dead king, an usurper to the throne, and some staff broken into eight pieces to reassemble, but that was all just cake icing; a...
