The first encounter with "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" provoked in me delight. Although at the very beginning of our hero is run like clockwork, after several minutes of dramatic events (and by the way the tutorial) is released into the daylight. And although the accompanying figure suggests where to go, you can go anywhere. Pretty impressive, especially if someone has never played a RPG from Bethesda.
The Elder Scrolls series is characterized by a large and open world where the player can do what he like existence, but New The Elder Scrolls is a direct example of what we love western RPGs. It is a unique world in which we want to take the plunge, even for a moment to feel powerful. For several hours I spent longer in Skyrim ie, I could kill the despotic guardian orphanage, beat seven thousand steps leading to the highest peak in the land, forge a magical armour and visited the ancient dwarven ruins. I've done it dozens of other things, each of which was interesting in its own way.
I highly recommend The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and I hope that it will spend with her nice and pleasant moments.
- Well designed, spacious world of beautiful locations;
- Degree of immersion unreachable for other titles;
- Great freedom of action;
- Random quests, which are the perfect complement to ordinary tasks;
- Great mission of the Thieves Guild and the Dark Brotherhood;
- Improved compared to Oblivion character development system;
- Well-executed fight in real time;
- Audio frame with an indication of the music.

The fifth game of The Elder Scrolls franchise. Skyrim is a unique roleplaying , action and adventure game that never, ever ends. This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. Add in the unlimited potential of modding, and it's an adventure that continues forever. For the first 30-50 hours, you will be completely absorbed in the beautiful and vast world. From big snowy mountains, to open plains and forests to big cities and villages. With seemingly endless opportunities for exploration and questing. As you proceed in a massive open-world with thousands of side quests, things to plant/gather/craft, and to fight, you can easily put hundreds of hours in this game. Even if you confine yourself to just the main quest. It is still quite a large scale game. This game truly deserves the title of "near perfection", being one of those rare milestones that comes every so often in years of gaming. Skyrim itself, is probably the best release from Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series. Story wise, this is one of the most developed storyline from the series, giving much enjoyment overall. A bloody Civil war between the Storm Cloaks and the Imperial army. But under the surface even more factions are fighting for turf, The Thieves guild, its glory long gone, strives to reclaim their title as masters of darkness. The Dark Brotherhood, crumbling and in despair seeks out new opportunities to return to the day when people feared them and respected them. The College of Winterhold, a old school for Mages, that fell into hard times after half of Winterhold fell into the ocean, uncovers a powerful relic that could allow Infinite wisdom or Infinite Destruction. That is just a sample of the deep story and background of skyrim. The world of skyrim IS alive. It also has very open advancement, and many opportunities to advance your skills in either magic, combat, or stealth (or a combination of all). You are not as restricted as in previous Elder Scrolls games (and they were very open). It even has perks - skill points you can place on skills to improve their function even more than leveling up. Great for those who like skill trees! The graphics are amazing, beautiful environment, the atmosphere, the sounds, the combats, everying is just amazing!!!
A game that stole 500 hours of my lifeartisall | June 7, 2014 | See all artisall's reviews »
And I don't regret a single minute of it. its been years since this title was released and I still come back every once and awhile to go spelunking in some cave or chase down some Daedra. With more and more mods releasing regularly, there are times I feel like it's a different game entirely. If you enjoy adventure, exploring and picking up everything (I think I have 400 tomatoes in Breezehome), then this is the title for you. No, Skyrim isn't perfect, no game is. I wish that the NPC reacted more to the world around them that I was supposedly 'changing', and the combat could definitely feel better, like I was actually hitting something, because as cool as I feel charging out into the wilderness, I don't feel very dangerous when I can't feel the power behind my swings or the impact from my fireballs.
All and all, a great game for those who want to loose hours exploring, looting and surrounding yourselves with companions who bug the ever loving crap out of you.

Oh, Skyrim. Only God know how much time I've spent with you. And, it doubles with the help of the mods. I've never felt more immersed than the way I felt while playing TESV:S. Maybe you say that the graphics are not that good. Nonsense! With all the available mods (See Steam Workshop and/or Nexus). Not only you can add better looks to your game. You can add EVERYTHING. From weapons, to houses. From new dungeons, to companions. I think that the possibilities with this game are almost infinite. I admit that, if you only follow the main storyline, your adventure will be pretty short. But, if you make sure to use the freedom that this game gives you, you can be strolling around Skyrim (Or, Solstheim, thanks to the Dragonborn DLC) killing, helping, hunting and fighting. Take your weapons and became a mass murderer, if you want. Or, maybe, you want to be at home with your kids and wife, baking bread. (Only with Hearthfire DLC) Take part in the epic fight between the Imperials and the Stormcloaks and support anyone you want. Search for more knowledge about the thu'ums and kill hundred and thousands of dragons. As I said, the possibilites are almost infinite. So, why don't you give it a try? I can guarantee that you won't regret it.
Skyrim: A True MasterpieceAzrael360 | April 30, 2014 | See all Azrael360's reviews »
This is probably the best game I've ever played. I already had it on Xbox 360 with over 470 hours played, and then on Steam with over 600 hours, and still doesn't tire me.
This is a classic single-player western RPG with the Elder Scrolls style and rich lore, where the player was multiple choices and quests to complete in an open world for hundred of hours of entertainment, in first or third person view. You can play however you like, be good or bad, warrior, mage or a mix of everything. You decide how to play and are free to do whatever you want.
The main game is about the resurrection of the dragons and a civil war in Skyrim (the northern region in Nirn), among many others important quests.
The expansion Dawnguard is about stopping or joining the Vampire Lords who want to cover the sun and rule the land.
Hearthfire is a simple DLC that lets you buy up to three lands, design and build a homestead in each one, and also, let you adopt up to four children.
The expansion Dragonborn is the biggest of the three DLCs, which adds the island of Solstheim in the north, between Skyrim and Morrowind, and it's about the return of the first dragonborn, the evil Miraak.
You can't go wrong with this game. Just with the main game you will get at least 300 hours of play, plus 100 hours with the DLCs. And thanks to the modding community, you can add many quality mods to the PC version to custom your adventure, and also, the famous Unofficial Skyrim Patches that fix hundred of script errors and bugs left unpatched by Bethesda. Highly recommended.
