PostThe Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

It's finally here! The 5th chapter in the elder scrolls series. But how does it fair against the others? Is it legendary enough to be written in the elder scrolls themselves? Or should this game be casted into the depths of oblivion?


You start the game as a prisoner, after creating your character you are witness to the dragon known as Alduin destroy an entire town. After you make your escape, The story picks up. After doing a few quests you are sent to kill a dragon where you learn that you are the last dragonborn, and the only one that can defeat Alduin. Compared to the past Elder Scrolls, This feels the most empowering. As you progress throughout the story you feel important to the world around you, and everything up to the last battle supports this in everyway. And yes, you actually do fight a last boss this time around.


Skyrim plays a lot different from the past Elder Scrolls games by a mile. Instead of selecting certain skills you want to profession in, You are given the option to profession in ALL OF THEM. Every single skill starts off at 10. You can upgrade them past this by using the skill more (Wearing heavy armour will increase your Heavy Armour skill, etc). This drives the open-ended world of skyrim home, for there is literally nothing you can't do in a single save file. One second your character can be a battlemage and the next second he can be an assassin! Sticking to the basic, Skyrim's combat has also changed from run up to the enemy and mash on them to thinking about your attacks and planing them carefully. Seriously, You can get your balls rocked by any enemy if you simply run up to them and wail on them. THINK BEFORE YOU DO. Skyrim also adds the ability to create and refine weapons and armour. This feels about 100 times more rewarding than hunting around for a super powered enchanted item. The best factor would have to be the random dragon attacks. Nothing scares the crap out of me more than walking down a road and I hear a dragon roar. It keeps you on the attack 24/7 for they will attack you, and if your not ready, you will die. FAST


Skyrim is a game that simply looks breathtaking. Every single enviroment simply looks how it should, even more than that. Some textures look bad when you get close up though. Another major fix in the series. PEOPLE DON'T LOOK SO DAMN UGLY. FINALLY. If I could describe how skyrim looks, It would be a mix of the vibrant land of cyrodyl mixed with the desolate plains of morrowind. They made the game not too bright and not too dark. A perfect combination. However, it does have it's glitches there and there.... PATCH IT


Whoever created all the sounds for skyrim deserves an award. Everything in skyrim sounds exactly how it should. The dragons roar sounds like it came from a beast, your dragon shouts are a perfect combination of voice and sound effects. Everything just sounds right. NOW, however created the soundtrack deserves a fucking Trophy signed by Mozart himself. The music is something else for this game. There was nothing quite like slaying a drago while a choir chants "Doväkiin" I remember screaming at my TV in excitement.


The main quest clocks in around 20 hours. Thats only the main fucking quest. Skyrim will easily take you over 100 hours to complete. You simply can't bored with this game! Its not possible. I bought this today and have barely got a quater through the story!!

In short, Skyrim is the best game to come out in 2011. There is no doubt about it. It not only lived up to the hype, But it set a bar which no year this game could top. Bethesda should feel damn proud about creating this masterpiece. Simple put, Buy this game, Then buy six more copies and give those to your friends.

Skyrim can suck my dick. Just like Oblivion did. Oblivion had a good sidequest. THAT WAS IT.

Erm.. I don't WANT it, Josh.

The only thing I would enjoy would be the bows.

I have Minecraft for that guilty pleasure.

i dont like that i can only put 1 ring on at a time, how no matter what race you play as you have the same voice so whats the point of being anything else but a nord?, it seems unfair if you havent played oblivion or fallout 3, & how orcs dont really look like orcs just green men with fucked up teeth BUT!!!!!!!! the game is still super fun it may little annoying things & is worth more then 60$

Random dragon spawning is sweet most of the time but it can also be hassle when youre trying to do a quest involving interacting with npcs but you can't because theyre to busy attacking a GOD-DAMNED DRAGON!
