"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.

Best RPG

TincraftTinman | Aug. 28, 2015 | See all TincraftTinman's reviews »

This game is amazing and to anyone who likes rpg's this is a must have. The quests and story have a lot of depth and detail into them and you can dump hundreds of hours into this game and still not have done everything. While there are some bugs because of the sheer size of the game you won't find anything game breaking and nothing that would really ruin the experience. If your on the fence about this game I definitely recommend it as it is the best game I've played to date. With the release of Fallout 4 approaching as well if you want to know what a bethesda game is like this is the perfect opportunity.

Great Game, many hours

Unfortunately, due to hardware difficulties I was not able to play Skyrim for PC until recently, but it is a great game and I do not regret buying it at all. I've already put in a great many hours and will probably put in a great many more hours, and I have not gotten any of the DLC yet. I have been playing Elder Scrolls since Morrowind but I still really enjoyed this one.

Addictive, although monotonous

jackapple | Aug. 13, 2015 | See all jackapple's reviews »

I'm a huge fan of RPGs and Skyrim is apparently THE rpg to play. I found the mechanics to be phenomenal, the fighting was fun, collecting better and more powerful items was very addictive, and the crafting system is also very fun. The downside, like most RPGs of this size, is to really take advantage of the crafting system you must pour in hundreds of hours to be able to make anything worthwhile, that includes potions, armor and weapons. My only gripe is the level design are very cut and paste. Most caves and castles look identical and it starts to become monotonous having to grind through yet ANOTHER cave in hopes that there's some goodies in there. The number of different types of baddies in the game is pretty limited too. That being said, the game IS really fun and me personal I enjoy playing it late at night and quietly exploring it's massive map.

Lots and lots of content

Sceyef | Aug. 11, 2015 | See all Sceyef's reviews »

ESO 5 Skyrim has a lot of replayability; not because of an immensely deep multi-ending plot line, bu because it has so much content in general. You have more character customization options than you will ever probably use, making your adventurer feel special. The game is well optimized and runs quite fast, and graphics are pretty good with photo-realism. What I didn't like was that, the choices you made in general did not matter that much. Your decisions could change a few items in your inventory, but nothing major. The storyline was pretty cliche with some creative naming.

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.
