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.

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!
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.Read more ›
Yes it is an open ended game, which means you can wander where ever you like and get killed by what ever you feel like taking on, although that style of game play won't suit everyone. Those that do like this style of play will be pleased to find there are no areas marked 'ONLY doe 87th level mages and above' and there are no restrictions on what your character can learn or use. You want to learn magic, go right ahead, you want to wear heavy armour as a mage, off you go... You won't get the magical perk you get from wearing mage robes, but it's up to you if that's important to your game style or not.
Currently I am playing a character who uses either arrows or fireballs as a long range weapon and an axe or a flame spell for close combat, with a heal spell in the other hand. I use the arrows when I am hunting wildlife (using sneak to get up close) and also to weaken targets. I started to follow the main story line quests, but then realised that I was rushing through the game and put the breaks on to clear some local side quests and level my character up, working on my crafting skills so I can start to improve magical items!Read more ›
After I bought Fallout: New Vegas pretty much as soon as it came out but found it lacking. Still played about 10hours but I wasn't fully satisfied and never had a reason to re-play it.
So I was a little worried about buying this, it looked really good but i wasn't sure to get it day one.
I waited a few weeks and after hearing all the great reviews about it from friends and family, I decided to give in and bought it(I didn't buy it from amazon so this review is just for the game).
I was completely overwhelmed at how good this game is, everywhere you go there something new to do, new people to meet and new weapons acquire.
I'm about 12hours in and there still so much left to do.
I slain dragons, become a werewolf, joined the dark brotherhood, took part in a civil war and so much more.
I only encountered one glitch and that;s the giant sending you 500 feet in the air, don't get me wrong it was a nice view but come on 500 feet? But I sorted this out by reloading and then taking my revenge on the giant. There a patch due for the 1st December which will attempt to fix the majority of bugs.
I haven't played many RPGs apart from Fable and Dragonage(enjoyed Fable but lacking depth and just flat out disliked Dragonage)but this was simple enough to navigate. Perk tree clearly labels and conversation are easy to understand.
The graphic are very impressive on my 32" HD tv, I'm using a hdmi cable which cost about £1 and my graphical setting is on 1080i, a couple of bad textures here and there but good none the less.
I can't think of much wrong with this game, so long as you want to sink your teeth into the best single player game you'll get anytime soon.Read more ›
