in a word, Epic,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)Let me start by stating a few facts. This is a review of the PC version. I own and run an IT business so my gaming PC is to say the least high spec. I have clocked up over 250 hours
Ok my partner HATES this game with a passion reserved only for truly hateful things, Jeremy Kyle for instance. Why? Because she never ever see's me. This truly is the game of games. Ground breaking is a word used far to often to promote mediocre products but trust me when I say this is such a thing.
Vast.... There simply is no other word for it. Far Cry tried to be this big but feels very compatmentalised this on the other hand is just, well vast! You can literally spend hours wandering around doing little side quest (which in themselves are extremely varied) or talking to people without progressing at all on the main quest lines (of which again there are many) as I stated above I am 250 hours in and still haven't completed half of the main quest lines, through choice I will add. Add to this hidden canyons, lairs, sunken ships, dragons, creating weapons potions and money and you have a game that will appeal from Sims fans to hardcore COD players
Stunning. There are times when you will appear at the top of an area or mountain and stop simply to admire the view. Sounds crazy I know but honestly some of the scenary in this game is breathe taking. Add to this the multitude of addons from Skyrim players that enhance and add to this landscape and you have what in my eyes is a game so far out in front of the competition its defies belief.
Steam as always but its such a common complaint now its hardly the worst thing.
When you get to level 30+ life is probably a little too easy. However for PC'ers out there there are sufficent modes to increase diffculty that it is a minor gripe
Basically you need this game in your life, you may not like this type of genre generally but I guarentee you will like this game
