The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

 

The Elder Scrolls series has always had a certain charm to it in terms of its fantastically realized world and somewhat buggy performance. Games

Skyrim is the game that I would highly recommend to damn near anyone. It’s not too hard to figure out and it’s got such an enormous amount of stuff to do that anyone would be able to see what is so special about the game. It has bugs, there...

Endless playability is the hallmark of The Elder Scrolls series and, while I haven't matched the hundreds of hours I put into Morrowind, or even the nearly 100 I put into Oblivion, I've spent enough...

Stunning environments ; Near complete freedom ; Great new magic/combat system ; Phenomenal score

Minor occasional glitches

First things first: a disclaimer. I haven’t finished Skyrim. I haven’t completed the main quest or run through all the missions for a guild. I haven’t explored every corner of the map and leveled my character to godly heights. In fact, I feel like I’ve...

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 long-awaited sequel to Oblivion is here. See how it plays inside.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

 

The Elder Scrolls series cleans up its act without losing its edge.

Skyrim lets these rough edges show, because the element of chaos lets players feel like the game is happening to them, and they are alive in it—not just cogs in a pre-fab Game Experience. That’s what sets Skyrim apart from some of its contemporaries....

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (360)

 

Wonder comes in many forms in Skyrim, and Bethesda shows us this wonder in many places and in many ways in one of their most enjoyable games yet.

Mayhem and wonder can lurk behind every bend, every hill, and every mountain; main quest line is an improvement from Oblivion; dual-wielding and Shouts make combat more fun; enchanting, making potions, and crafting weapons is easy, and for some, likely...

Technical issues could ruin moments for some players; it's too easy to go into "sneak" mode when backing up with the control stick; long load times in the Xbox 360 version (sadly, we don't know if this applies to the PS3 or PC version)
