"...one of the most fully-realized, easily enjoyable, and utterly engrossing role-playing games ever made." - IGN.com

"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.

Why I love this game

trex45 | Sept. 2, 2015 | See all trex45's reviews »

With Skyrim you can do a cubic buttload of stuff just in the base game, and that's why i love it. You can never really run out of things to do, even if you do you can just install one of those adventure mods or make your own fun. Sure there are some minor issues but what game doesn't have flaws. 100/100 One of the best games ever.

Addictive and full of Atmosphere

JohnGirth | Sept. 1, 2015 | See all JohnGirth's reviews »

It is probably very well known that this game has received a lot of glowing reviews and does it deserve them? Short answer? Yes. Long answer? Well, this game starts off giving you an epic scale with the great way it sets up the first dragon encounter. When you walk around streets, everyone has their daily jobs and lives, they interact and make conversations with each other. Everywhere is an adventure and there's nothing like feeling like you are genuinely a legend being written as you go about on your many quests! The cons of this game? Sometimes you can across some enemies which seem a bit too strong for what level you are and there is no real indicator of how strong an enemy is going to be, until you have slain it or it has crushed your head between its teeth, case in point when I first bumped into a giant and whacked it with my sword I got launched into space and out of the map. Avoid their whacks, they will WRECK you! I would buy this game at any price you feel comfortable with, either way you are going to have a great time with this game!

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

palmtreebearer | Aug. 18, 2015 | See all palmtreebearer's reviews »

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.
