Grab a dragon by the tail and follow Kevin VanOrd through this review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Looking forward to this game. Which is to say, got others lined up first.
I tend to leave the best for last.
The criticisms I have for Skyrim are these, the building layouts in towns are all the same and the overall richness of color in the game is sorely lacking. With this said, skyrim is a great game which could have been a masterpiece. For any RPG fan, this is a must play.
I too thought the color palette was a tad too bland and washed. It's a snowy region all-around, but the lush places could do with more vibrant colors. That's where mods come in. There's lots that tone the ambiance alone. If there's one adding ambient lights to a certain town so that it doesn't appear abandoned at night, there surely must be one tweaking the vegetation's contrast.
this is the kind of game that makes you stay up until 5am drinking coffe, when the next day is an important one for work or school.
Started a new character again now after i played trough it a year ago, cause of the dawnguard dlc and the upcoming dragonborn, and its still fun, and awesome with so many bugfixes since I last played. This is a mustbuy for any rpg fan
I trusted Gamespot's review for the PS3 version of this game, and bought it. None of the patches fixed this game and I am still awaiting a refund from Bethesda. I wish somebody would have warned me the PS3 version of this game freezes non stop after level 23.
@Dredcrumb9 Well it was hardly an issue which was kept quiet by the gaming press. If you'd done some research beyond just one review on gamespot, you would have found articles about it on multiple gaming news sites.
best game i've ever played though i must give credit to the MODs that made skyrim the game i dreamed of. it didnt come out of the box that good. mods that improve the AIs and combat and mods that made more spawns happen in the outdoors and dozens of other mods that added over 100 new weapons and armors and many other improvements turned the game to something amazing.
thank god bethesda supports the PC crowd so well.
In Morrowind: I am spellsword
In Oblivion: a thief
In Skyrim: an assassin
Plenty of fun to have in each game.
i have clocked 500+ hrs and still loving every experience of it, just can't seem to get enough of the world
Lol, you can play this game for 100 + hours, grow bored of it, put it away for a few months, come back to it and feel like it's a brand new game.
Bethesda sucks for releasing public betas, but I will say I more than got my money's worth out of Skyrim especially now the patches make it even more playable.
@HipHopBeats I totally agree! I played this when it was released for a few weeks, but haven't touched it since. Just started a new character and it feels like I just bought a new game! So much content; especially with everything that's been added to the steam workshop.
if you are a lover of rpg's and have lots of free time then this is the game you have been waiting for
@Kain_Darothic lol it ant gonna happen, left skyrim for 2 months after clocking 200 hrs in, now recently picking it up and its still fresh as hell :D
stop playing for a few months, and now picking it up again for some reason and it still feels fucking fresh as hell!! skyrim, witcher 2 and DA origin are the best of the best rpg ive played so far :3
Between this game, Shift 2: Unleashed, BF3, and Witcher 2, I think 2011 may have been the best year of gaming for me in a long time.
Booting up this game is just plain pleasure, listening to the great music score invites you just like it was the first time, and then...the fun of playing this jewel.
i what this game too. i have whated it for a long time. infact i stopped whating other games so i could what this one
@shotup81Yeah, and I am a big fan of what bethesda has worked on before, such as fallout 3. I LOVE that game, and for some reason skyrim doesn't do it for me. no idea wy. I used glitches to my advantage, i was lvl 6 when i fought 3 dragons in a row. dang,
meh. It doesn't appeal to me. I have no idea why, it just.......doesn't. I like killing things, and plasmids (Big Bioshock fan) But I just don't like it. No idea why.
Plus, I love all the fallout games, and the lord of the rings, and yet, skyrim, nah.
Anyway, I recommend to everyone else, get this game. Looks awesome.
I dont have this game and dont plan on getting it, but as far as the glitches in the world go, it seems like the different abnormal things that happen in game are more hilarious than annoying. Could someone please give me an example of how this can be annoying (besides the AI getting in the way)?
@firebreather101 these glitches can be very annoying. like the conversations he talked about, those are alright. But if you don't save your game regularly and get stuck in a rock or something, you might have to go back a really long time. Even when you maybe give your equipment to your followers and they for some reason cant be found, you'll have to load a much earlier game.
