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.

MOST PERFECT GAME EVER!

onesourlemon99 | July 29, 2014 | See all onesourlemon99's reviews »

This is such a great game. i have about 50 hours on steam, 100 hours on XBOX 360, and 75 hours on PS3, and i still haven't gotten bored of it. There are so many game changing choices, and everything you do has a consequence and a reward. There are even game changing choices base on what race you pick in the beginning of the game. I highly recommend.

This game is only met by Bethesdas other great game fallout 3, Which i also recommend getting. This is the most amazing game ever. And Bethesda is the most amazing game company ever.

The Dragonborn Returns

luxcaeruleus | July 27, 2014 | See all luxcaeruleus's reviews »

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the fifth installment to the Elder Scrolls franchise. As the name say, the setting of this game is at Skyrim, the snowy part of Tamriel. You're the dragonbron and your fate is to defeat the evil dragon Alduin and stop him from eating the world. This is an epic fantasy RPG game the could make addicted quite easily. The game is open-world, where, you get to play however you want. You could customize your character the way you want it, whether you focus on magic, or on physical, or on both, you'll find it highly enjoyable. Gameplay is great. It features a quest based system much like those in MMOs which affect the world as you take them. You could join in various guilds and cults that you like. You could even become a werewolf or vampire! The story too is great. Who doesn't love Dragons? And one of the greatest feature this game has is mod support. With it, players could shape the world to their liking. They've created vast mods for the game to add additional content to the already massive game. All in all, this game is a must if you're like me that love to play games the way we like it.

One of the Best games in existence

cocoawolf29 | July 25, 2014 | See all cocoawolf29's reviews »

This game is absolutely amazing. This was the game the introduced me to the Elder Scrolls Series, so it was overwhelming. The game is open world, with a huge map with thousands of places to discover and explore. The scenery in the game is unmatched by any other game. Other games may have better or clearer graphics, but I have never seen a game with such sheer beauty and reality. There are bird songs, sounds of the wind in the grass and trees, northern lights, incredible mountains and valleys and rivers, not to mention the dragons that will occasionally fly across the sky in the distance. The sky itself must have been a pain to create. The clouds move and look unique each time you look up, and the weather is constantly changing. Rain, snow, or sunshine all bring different lighting with them, but the weather never seems repetitive. I never once believed that I had seen this storm or sky before. It was always changing. To make the beauty even more intense, there is always beautiful background music to go along with all your exploring and site seeing. Say you don't want to take advantage of the beautiful scenery. That's fine, even though I'd be satisfied with the exploring and view alone in this game. The main plot is crucial to unlocking skills for the rest of the game, even if the ending is a bit anticlimactic and short. There are hundreds of side quests, whether it's just killing a giant for a jarl to get the bounty or it's one of the complicated quest lines like the Thieves Guild or Dark Brotherhood. The range of weapons, skills, improvements, and items is astounding. There are dozens of different adversaries to confront, and each has their own weakness to exploit and strength to avoid. This game holds hundreds of hours of gameplay. If you want to do everything that game has to offer, better set aside 200+ hours. Though this game is amazing, there are still of course some bugs. There are instances of being unable to complete a quest because the roster bugged or the person that you needed to finish it was killed. However, the glitches can often times be very funny, like a dragon skeleton giggling up into the sky after dying. Problems are to be expected in such a huge game, and they are easily worth it to play such a great game. I hope I can find another game this good in the future.

Skyrim - A brand new world.

hateah | July 25, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »

That's the best open world game. In the begining you are in some camp where youve been caugh by the guards and there is where you choose your class and the way you want to proceed your whole game. Just before to cut your head off a dragon comes in the town and make chaos that's how he saves your life, not on purpose of course. Then oyu start runing and you can choose to go either with the rebeles, or with the friend of the king and then serve him. Your first quest is to go into the town named Riverwood, where the one you went with will meet you with the "Blacksmith" of Riverwood. There you can craft a dagger and start doing your first after tutorial quests. There are milion quests and towns which you have to finish. The game can not be finished. There are unlimited side and not side quests, like you can join thief guild, start doing quests all over the world and etc and etc. The main story tho is very interesting. The art style is amazing, I was not that clever and rushed into the main story ( I dont recommend you doing it, I finished the main story on lvl 15..) Usually you should do it around lvl 30-40, every finished Quest gives you XP to level up. You can also build a house,have a wife and a kid with the Skyrim DLC - Hearthfire. You feel like Skyrim is your new home :) I have a logo on the wall reminding me that this is one of the not that many open- world games which can make you feel so relaxed while walking around the world with that relaxed atmosphere. The graphics id give them 10/10. The grass details, the water and the people are really good designed. You wont regret it, go with it.

Best game I ever played

Aleksa | July 21, 2014 | See all Aleksa's reviews »

This game has best graphics, nice story, a lot of items, spells, food etc... You can do what ever you want the world is big. I only don't like brightness because Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is pretty much bright and in Skyrim everything is dark only in some regions (Riften, Whiterun) are bright. Anyway a best game strongly recommended for everyone!
