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.

Do whatever you want: Once you've done the start you are pretty free to do whatever you want go live in a village and work for someone or get a weapon and go out and explore the wonderful carefully crafted world that's been made for you to explore. You can tell the game makers have spent loads of time and detail to make it wonderful.
Dragon Born: Your character is special they are a dragon born which means you can use shouts and absorb dragon souls when you kill them this gives you a important role in some parts of the game and in the main story line.
Gameplay: So much to do! I've been playing for 3 months now and still have a huge list of quests to do its amazing its like an unlimited amount of adventures in this game something which not many games have to offer, I would say well done to the creators and writers of this game on spending so much time on quests and storylines.
Good graphics and detail everywhere.
Very good gameplay.
Only takes about 5 minutes of playing to realize this game is a masterpiece.
Plenty to do.
Difficulty settings if you are new to this type of game make it a bit easier or if you want more of a challenge you can adjust it to make you happy.
You can be a mage, archer, or a armed warrior.
Some bugs and glitches around which every game has but there are some missions that don't work.
Some people say the same thing over and over again it gets annoying.
I'm not fond of the navigation system and maps I find it hard to get to the quests sometimes.
Sometimes the quests could explain a bit more on what your meant to do.
I don't often play games and write reviews that say this is one of the best games ever but it has to be said for this one. This game holds a big adventure for you a massive wonderful world waiting to be explored now go and slay some dragons!
But Skyrim? I had to get for the console, i played a video preview on my TV and it looked amazing, and that was when I decided to migrate from the Computer to the Playstation 3 for The Elder Scrolls games.
The new style of gameplay is fresh and fun, with you leveling up skills faster the more you use them, and being able to pick a perk on the skill-tree of the skills you love to use. (Such as Archery skill increasing with the more arrows that hit an enemy, and thus I am able to unlock Archery perks when I level up!)
Old and pointless skills are gone, such as Acrobatics, Athletics and Mysticism to name a few. After a while of playing, you understand why you never really needed them at all.
All the animations are vastly improved, and the characters all look much nicer. But the real perk here is the landscape and environments; on a large HD TV the game shines at its best, and if you have a surround sound system you feel like you are actually in the mythical land of Skyrim.
Sometimes the game can lag when too much is going on, and attacks may lock up or do no damage at all when hitting a target. There is also the infamous bug of Super Enemies appearing too early in the game, such as an Ancient Dragon (which should appear when you are level 40 or higher) appearing when you're still at level 15. Try to run from them if you can, because if you don't you'll get your butt kicked hard by them.
I never thought I'd write this section so briefly but...
Everything is excellent; the thieves guild, the Dark Brotherhood, the Companions, even the College of Winterhold (Mages Guild) all have their stories beefed up and full of thrills. The main quest and all the smaller activities within the world are fun and educating to the Lore of The Elder Scrolls.
I have nothing bad to say about the story, it's all good, but that's down to personal preference.
Gameplay: 4 out of 5 (still has a few bugs)
Story: 5 out of 5
Music: 5 out of 5
Dialogue: 4 out of 5 (a few repetitive things, but easy to ignore)
Re-playability: 5 out of 5 (a lot of dialogue changes for each race you select!)
Over all: 23/25
Skyrim is a wonderful game in many ways, but wether you go for the console version or the computer version is down to preference. Unlike the console version, you can delve into the fun fandom that is 'modding' in the Computer version. But you don't feel the cinematic scale like you do on a HD TV on your console!
