"One Amazing Game"
5 stars"

After 8 months of playing Skyrim on and off I have finally finished the entire game.

Yes there has been a few bugs, glitches and lag. Most of which has been fixed with patches.

But no one could deny the visual and epic brilliance of this game.

1 main storyline – The Dragonborn.

Sub storylines – The Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, The Civil War.

300 side quests

Over 100 locations to explore and enemies to kill in a huge open world.

Make different kinds of potions, armor and weapons that can help you in combat.

You decide what race and character you want to play as. Use magic, bows, one handed swords, two handed axes, or just dual wield.

I paid full price for this game on release and it was money well spent.

"Two words "Visualy Stunning""
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Game Play: This title is a first/third person game, what I mean by that is you can play in either first person mode or third. But for the most part I would say you would be using first-person. The world you are in is open world with free questing, so you can go where ever you want and do what ever you want. The only part that I have found so far that is linier, is the start of the game. But once you get to the first village after character creation you can do what ever.

Leveling: This is the only sour point to the game that I have found so far, there is only one way to level up in this game and it aint through EXP… Well thats not 100% true. *NOTE: IF YOU WANT TO DISCOVER THE LEVEL PROCESS ON YOUR OWN DON'T READ THE NEXT PART – Here's how the level system seems to work to me. You have quite a few skills that you can learn such as; Smithing, Lockpicking, Pickpocket, Destruction Spells, Restoration Spells, One Handed (this also includes Duel Weld), Heavy Armor etc etc etc, trust me theres a lot of them. Each successful use/attack/block and incomming damage adds points to that skill, as that skill levels you gain points to your character level until you gain a level… So thats level up skills to gain points on your main level. Its an interesting system but if you want to grind on giants, mammoths and dragons to level… Play something else. OK each time you gain a level you are given 1 skill point but before you can use it you need to make a choice “Magika Health Stamina” picking one will increase the bace amount of the choice you made. After you choose you can use or save you skill point. Now before you say “Cool I can level and skill up everything”...... NO! Each skill has a level cap system on it – so lets say your first skill you want to upgrade is One Handed Weapons, the first tier might need that skill to be level 20 before you can add a point to it and the next tier might need say level 40 in that skill before you can add a second point. So in short you need to level your skills to level your character so no EXP sort of.

Crafting: There are four crafting skills to the game: Smithing, Cooking Alchemy, Enchanting. Of the four cooking is the only one that is not a real skill you can cook but it dosen't help in the leveling process that I could see, you can gather mats for both cooking and alchemy from many sorces throughout the world of Skyrim from animals to bugs. Smithing mats can be found all over the world and in caves and Enchanting is a bit strange you need to get an enchanted items then disasemble it to learn how it works (this distroys the item) then you can use that enchant as many times as you need, other items can be found from looting or from vendors (same for all).

Weapons: Ranged – Bows One Hand/Duel Weld – Daggers, Swords, Axes, Maces, Shields, Staffs, Magic Two Handed – Greatswords, Battleaxes, Warhammers, Magic (If I missed any “My bad :P”) Yip I know I put magic for both one and two handed thats because you can use magic on either one or two hands and yes you can mix and match you magic so attack in one and heals in the other. (*HINT – If you want a nuke mage keep the same spells in both hands its stronger)

Armor: Theres a few types of armor ranging from rags through to dragon bone. As a *HINT – Level smithing as high as soon as pos you need lvl100 smithing to make dragon bone armor.

Well theres a lot more that I could tell you and a lot more I need to cover but I aint gonna tell ya :P lol. Lets see as a ending note I will tell you this; MOBS: Dragons, Bears, Undead, Vampires, Wolfs, Giants, Ghosts AND A WHOLE LOT MORE...... I would have given this an excellent rating but I really don't like the level system to much… Other than that well worth the purchace I've been playing for well over 80hrs and I still aint even half way through yet (To much fun kiling giants and dragons lol). So in short BUY THE GAME KILL LOTS OF STUFF AND HAVE A LOT OF FUN DOIN IT :D

"Worth all the hype"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Skyrim takes everything that was great about Oblivion and makes it better, while fixing many of the issues with the previous game. The levelling system is much improved (although still open to exploitation) and the people no longer look like wax dolls. Highly recommended

Description

Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

“… one of the most fully-realized, easily enjoyable, and utterly engrossing role-playing games ever made.” 9.5/10 – IGN

“…the big, bold, and beautiful sequel you hoped for and is sure to bewitch you for countless hours.” 9/10 Superb – Gamespot

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Features:

  • Epic Fantasy Reborn – Skyrim reimagines the open-world fantasy epic, pushing the gameplay and technology of a virtual world to new heights.
  • Live another life, in another world – Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want; the legendary freedom of choice, storytelling, and adventure of The Elder Scrolls is realized like never before.
  • All New Graphics and Gameplay Engine – Skyrim's new game engine brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, and ancient dungeons.
  • You Are What You Play – Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. The new character system allows you to play any way you want and define yourself through your actions.
  • Dragons Return – Battle ancient dragons like you've never seen. As Dragonborn, learn their secrets and harness their power for yourself.

Metacritic score: 92/100 Universal acclaim based on 16 Critics

Review by IGN
“…one of the most fully-realized, easily enjoyable, and utterly engrossing role-playing games ever made…it's difficult to ever feel completely satisfied with a play session of Skyrim. There's always one more pressing quest, one more unexplored tract of land, one more skill to increase, one more butterfly to catch. It's a mesmerizing game that draws you into an finely crafted fictional space packed with content that consistently surprises. The changes made since Oblivion are many, and result in a more focused and sensible style of play, where the effects of every decision are easily seen. Featuring the same kind of thrilling freedom of choice The Elder Scrolls series is known for along with beautiful visuals and a stirring soundtrack, playing Skyrim is a rare kind of intensely personal, deeply rewarding experience, and one of the best role-playing games yet produced.”

IGN RATINGS FOR THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM (PS3)
9.0 Presentation
An elegant menu system and a huge amount of story content to dig into. Bugs and stability issues do exist, however.
9.5 Graphics
Stunning environmental detail make exploring Skyrim all the more rewarding. Some character models and animations look unnatural.
10 Sound
An incredible soundtrack and great sound design help make Skyrim feel like a real place.
9.5 Gameplay
Though the up-close weapon combat is still awkward, customizing your character and conquering all Skyrim's challenges is consistently satisfying.
10 Lasting Appeal
A game of staggering size and filled with content, so there's always a reason to return.
9.5
OVERALL
Amazing
