Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

The next installment in the critically acclaimed Elder Scrolls series is finally here: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people.

The Elder Scrolls told of their return. 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.

  • 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skyrim - It's Finally Here! 11 Nov. 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After a much anticipated wait by thousands upon thousands, or 3.5 million plus, 11.11.11 has finally arrived. Some people will have gotten the game on launch day, some unfortunate enough to receive it after. And for the lucky few a day or two before release.

There has been a lot of coverage of Skyrim leading up to its release that people have likely seen, about the animation, the sound, the world, the decapitations and dragon battles. But honestly none of that can truly do justice for how wonderful the game is, you need to play it for yourself to see it.
When running down a snowy mountain and first entering a pine forest, memories of oblivion can start to enter the mind, but they soon get washed away by fresh ones as the many new and improved aspects kick into play. Basically the game is a sure improvement over oblivion and here is why.
Firstly: (MINOR SPOILER) Werewolves are indeed back, and better than ever!

COMBAT:
When you charge towards someone and swing a steel great sword with full power at their head, it feels like you're charging towards someone swinging a steel great sword with full power at their head! The way the camera subtly jolts and the dragonborn's body continues moving in the direction of the force for a second. Though these attacks drain nearly all your stamina at first and take a brief moment to recover from.. well if you can land it the attack is as deadly as it looks, usually killing enemies with a single blow. It adds a new found sense of realism just like when it comes to firing arrows at enemies, you no longer have to fire more than 4, no more hedgehog arrow enemies unless they are really strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb fantasy game 11 April 2012
By A. S. Garton VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I consider myself to be a pretty average gamer - I'm certainly not "hard core" and I am not into online gaming. For me, I prefer to do my own thing, in my own time. I enjoy maximum freedom within a game. I am relatively new to Xbox gaming - in fact it's been a few years since I did much gaming at all. I never played the prequels to Skyrim, so this is a "standalone" review - just Skyrim, and nothing but Skyrim.

The detailing in Skyrim is simply amazing. I first noticed this when I realised I had spent about 45 minutes creating my character! I am certain I could have created my hero in less time, but it was fascinating to explore the options and see what was possible. Once created, the story kicks off in earnest, and from the earliest juncture it is clear that your decisions build the story. But this isn't as simple as asking "are you an Imperialist?" - in fact, the story is built slowly over many hours of gameplay and I found that I was only locked in to certain decisions after having had plenty of options to turn back.

Skyrim is a very large "map" within which are multiple cities, towns, regions, caves, dungeons, ruins, camps, etc. etc. - in the first 20 hours of gameplay, it seems almost endless. As you get around more, meet more people, interact and explore, it is easy to pick up quests. These are broken down into the main quest of the game, several major side quests, and hundreds of mini-quests and missions. Interestingly, none of quests feel any more vital than another, which is great as it adds to the experience of exploration and personal control - it took me a long while to recognise what was the "main quest" line, and I found it easy to complete that entirely at my leisure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Game Of The Year 27 Jan. 2012
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I bought Portal2 I believed that I would play no better game in 2011. I bought Skyrim on the hype having not played Elder Scrolls before and two months later I am finally at the point where I have put it down. In value for money terms alone this game is a must with the sheer depth and size of the game. But it offers a lot more than that.

Skyrim is a single player RPG in a massive world that follows the Elder Scrolls story line. You start controlling a prisoner and gradually build skills. What's different in this game is that the skills are built up gradually and you don't have to just play one character class but you can build a rounded character or just a fighter or a mage or a thief. Its up to you and this build of skills every time you level up feels natural. The world you play in is threatened by dragons. Something the world hasn't seen for a long time and you have to find out about this new menace and then ultimately defeat it. That's the main quest. However, there are thieves quests, mage's quests, companions quests, random quests and so much more. You can stumble over a cave and be in there for an hour trying to kill skeletons, spiders or any nasty being really. This isn't a game you pick up for ten minutes. The main quest is almost a sideline...this game is so open no-one plays it the same way and a lot of people don't even bother with the main quest. Its just huge.

Did I mention the Dragons? Because this is where the game really goes from being very good to outstanding. You are minding your own business and you hear a roar, the soundtrack changes to amplify the threat with drums and then you are bathed in fire (or ice) as a dragon swoops down (seemingly at random) and you are in a battle.
