"A vast and gorgeous world of exciting possibilities, fascinating places, engrossing adventures and flying lizards." - PCGamer.com


The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

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.

One of the best RPG's I've ever played.

Murderbot735 | July 28, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »

This game is incredible. I originally played it on Xbox 360, but when I got a better computer I bought it on PC to play with mods. If you want to play it with mods I would recommend the Legendary Edition, since many mods require the DLC to work, and the DLC is pretty awesome too, which helps. The world is absolutely huge, and there's so ridiculously much to do. I never even completed the main quest. Do you want to become an assassin, join some mercanaries, join some crazy natives, help random jarls or just wander of and explore every cave, and much more? The combat is maybe not the best and is not that dependent on skill, but I liked it. There's one-handed maces, axes and swords, two-handed greataxes, hammers and greatswords, bows and many different magic schools. You can also craft potions, gear, and enchant the gear. The world is so rich and filled with content. There's almost always something new popping up on your compass. But not everything is great. The AI is often incredibly stupid, and the lines they have are really weird. The AI may for example commenting an arrow hitting them in the eye by "Must have been the wind". There's also a lot of bugs, especially if it is modded. Some are just funny, like flying mammoths, but crashes are not that great. At least it is really easy and quick to - well - quicksave, so I never lost too much progress. Overall this game is awesome. I'd recommend getting the Legendary Edition since it includes all the great DLC and makes more mods work for it if you're into that.

Love this game

Duddel | July 22, 2015 | See all Duddel's reviews »

This game is almost perfect, there are some pesky bugs but overall it's a stable and solid game. the puzzles are dull though and aome side quests are about fetching things or exterminating bandits, not very fun. But the rest of the game, ooooh how good it is. Go watch a let's play or something and watch the game play. Just buy it for gods sake!

The most beautiful RPG I've played yet

The1337N00Bx | July 21, 2015 | See all The1337N00Bx's reviews »

Visually speaking, the best RPG I've ever played, huge open world that's extremely fun to explore and easy to get sucked into. Story is great, as with all Elder Scrolls games, and of course the hundreds of hours of side quests as well. Plus it's got dragons, I mean, what more do you really need? Gameplay wise, this is my favorite of the Elder Scrolls series, the use of shouts really added to the fun in my opinion. I would highly recommend this game to everyone.

Pretty Great- Though Bugs Sometimes Cripple Gameplay

daxthevortex | July 21, 2015 | See all daxthevortex's reviews »

At it's core, Skyrim is an Action Fantasy Single Player Role Playing Game, that pits you, the Dragonborn, against the open world of Skyrim and sometimes other places such as Sovengarde and an island district of Morrowind. It is a massive game, with around 500 hours of vanilla content (pre DLC), and to experience the game fully, multiple playthroughs are needed and recommended. For the gameplay, I will cover the three classes and how they play. For a Fighter, the game is very simple; make the best implement that suits your fighting style and charge in smashing heads. For a Rogue, your best bet is to make the best daggers/bows and arrows you can and sneak in, picking off people one by one. Most of the time, the level design complements the sneaking style of the Rogue, but at other times, you'll find yourself at odds with the design of some areas. The Wizard is a very menu/hotkey driven class, mainly consisting of using damage spells or tactical spells such as Rout or Paralyze to off your opponents. All in all, the gameplay is very diverse, and you'll find yourself enthralled with the random encounters with dragons- which is a new gameplay and story device. Shouts, a new type of soul-magic usable by all archetypes and are your reward for hunting these dragons down, also blend smoothly into every playstyle, with shouts like Slow Time and Unrelenting Force being a blast to use with everyone. The biggest issue with the game is the occasional crash and the very common glitches. I've found that the more hours you put into the game, the more common they are. Having played Skyrim for around 1500-2000 hours, I don't stop playing when I feel like it, I play until I get either a gamebreaking glitch or a crash, which is about at the 2 hour mark usually. Bugs mar and sometimes cripple this otherwise enjoyable game, and for that, I give it an 8.2/10.

Extremely addictive, and fun.

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is a fun game. You're liable to sink hundreds of hours into it. There's not a whole lot in the way of story, which is kinda disappointing, but the huge amount of Lore makes up for it. The gameplay isn't complex on it's own, but it's fun. There is a lot of customization in the game with a ton of classes and races and customization within your own character, really making it feel like your own, unique character. And there is never a lack of things to do, with how big the world is, there are hundreds upon hundreds of things to do. It's a fun game, certainly worth your time.
