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.

One of the best games I have ever played.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a masterful open world RPG. It serves as the next installment in Bethesda's hit "The Elder Scrolls" RPG series, and is a title that deserves "The Elder Scrolls" name. It features many improvements over the last entry in the series, Oblivion, greatly improved visuals, exciting game-play, hundreds of quests, many different story lines, and the ability to play the game in many different ways. The game takes place during the height of a civil war in Skyrim between the Imperial Legion and Stormcloak rebels. Coincidentally enough, during this time, dragons decide to come back after being dead for thousands of years, and terrorize the citizens of Skyrim. You play the Dragonborn of legend that arrives in Skyrim just in time to help fight back the dragons. Travel around the province and discover what is causing the dragons to return, and take part in different events that you run into while reversing the mountainous environment of Skyrim such as joining up with the Dark Brotherhood assassins, Riften Thieves Guild, Companions, or The College of Winterhold. Uncover conspiracies, work with deadric gods, fight a war, and kill some dragons. Skyrim has so much to do, beautiful scenery to take in, and amazing places to explore. Without a doubt one of the best games I have every played, and will keep playing for years to come until TES VI comes out .

I used to be an adventurer like you, but then ...

Alinasser | Aug. 12, 2014 | See all Alinasser's reviews »

One more Elders scrolls title, more and more hundreds and hundreds of hours, no, days, weeks gone of my life.

Graphics: The vanilla version s not spectacular but very solid. but with the crazy amount of the free mods available, it certainly can rival beautiful games like Crysis in how good it can look. 8\10

Sounds: Character voices are well done but what stands out is the sound track that "I paid to get it alone" 9\10

Game play: Simple but "enchanting" see what i did there :) The world is HUGE and FULL of secrets. The game will be great for years to come.

Replayability: With that huge world and many Mods, The possibilities are endless.

An Example of A Basically Perfect RPG Game

mrminecrafter1 | Aug. 11, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »

This is one of the generation's best games out there. Skyrim is overflowing with so much content packed into the game. The rich lore and storytelling really immerses you into the wonderfully detailed world. Graphics are quite good, but thanks to Steam Workshop you can improve it even more. Gameplay is amazing with incredibly deep crafting, magic, skill trees, and even more. There is so much more that I could mention such as the fantastic voice acting and sound design, but the game is much better if you experience it yourself. Recommended with an awesomeness badge.

Skyrim best rpg i played

Cuked | Aug. 9, 2014 | See all Cuked's reviews »

I think this is the most complete rpg I have ever played. You can play with mods if you want, and also you can just be a fucking assasin of all the world, an NOTHING HAPPENS. If you have limit in something, a few click and you have a mod that get that limits off. If you want you can just explore and be a farmer, or be the warrior of your dreams :3

In conclusion, just the best rpg game i ever played

Absolutely loved it.

Jericho417 | July 31, 2014 | See all Jericho417's reviews »

So many improvements over Oblivion, but it keeps what made it great. Skyrim offers a very rich world full of things to do without touching the main story line. The combat feels great, much improved from Oblivion. The story and history are enjoyable to learn. The overhaul of the magic feels right. Graphically, it's lovely, but mods make it gorgeous.

I loved my time in Skyrim... but it wasn't perfect. The PC port wasn't well executed at all. I had quest bugs somewhat often when I played, In order to get around them, I had to use console commands to help me along. Doing so blocked off achievements in Steam. Without them, some quests were impossible to finish. The interface also felt messy and irritating.
