    After your save file reaches 15MB, it is game over.

    Let me start by saying that the game is very good in terms of graphics, gameplay and first and foremost the general idea, story and open-world it offers. However, the game is broken, especially for the PS3 version. On... Read Full Review

    Once again Bethesda passionately crafts a world where we can be player and dungeonmaster.

    SKYRIM an rpg you will love if you take the time to learn its personality. A personality of explore! explore! explore! Which after two years of playing I have found out is SKYRIM's greatest strength along with the other... Read Full Review

    Lots of Issues Don't Spoil This Great Game

    Skyrim has outdated graphics, even for 2011, a messy, 1990's-esque UI, inconsistent voice-acting, and some truly awful animations. People tend to overlook all of this because the sheer scope of the game necessitated som... Read Full Review

    I like the game but only put in 80 hours and got to level 46 with my character. With Oblivion I put in 180 hours and got to level 36. Skyrim was good but it didn't have that Elder Scrolls feel as much as Oblivion did. I... Read Full Review

    A very majestic game

    This is by far one of the best games I've played in my entire life. For a 2011 game, the graphics are amazing. There are plenty of weapons and skills to choose from to make your character much more powerful. Every time y... Read Full Review

    Almost perfect.

    What can be said about Skyrim at this point? Three years on it is still deep, immersive, and fun. There's few games that make you want to put the phone on DND like Skyrim -- and look up five hours later. I think the char... Read Full Review

    Skyrim

    Have you seen Skyrim Nexus? it says it all ... see the devotion to make this game a world you want to return to over and over. It is a game of staggering size and filled with content, so there's always a reason to return... Read Full Review
