    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is well worth the hype, complete with many quests, a storyline, and hours of fun.

    Rated on February 11, 2012 by Khloipha

    After playing through Skyrim's storyline, I'm at a conflict with the game, but not in a bad way, ironically. I still have many, MANY more quests to complete along with thousands of activities to still...

    Exactly what I'm looking for in a video game. Epic battles, good story, amazing visuals, and addicting character development. Early on, it's difficult enough to make me what to get better without leav...

    Some things taken out, a lot of new things added. Still a stellar RPG.

    Skyrim is an amazing game that I have spent far more hours playing than I care to admit. This game doesn't waste any time. The opening is very dramatic and gets you right into the action. Improveme...

    I only have one big problem with this game. It takes too much of my personal time away. You turn on the console, play SkyRim, and plan on doing just one thing and before you know it at least three h...

    As a massive Oblivion and Morrowind fan I waited a long time for this game and for once I was not disappointed. Graphics are brilliant, background music is superb , story is quite good, voices for the...

    There's never a dull moment in this game. One moment you're fighting a frost troll up in the mountains and the next a dragon swoops down. There's such a wide variety of weapons to choose from swords t...

    The best game I've ever played. Kind of.

    Rated on February 19, 2012 by jamaldiquan

    As unorthodox as it might be, I played Fallout 3 before any of the games Bethesda became famous for--the Elder Scrolls series. That being said, I didn't think I would enjoy Fallout 3 nearly as much if...

    It's a fun and enjoyable game but it does have a few minor problems with the game-play.

    Rated on February 19, 2012 by AK-6
