"...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.

Magical, literally

As a huge fan of Oblivion's more action oriented play style, as opposed to the somewhat tactical play style of Morrowind, Skyrim brings home the bacon.

I found myself wandering around the cities, getting in fights with guards just to see how they act and spending countless hours messing around in caves and dungeons. Even with the three hundred hours I've put into Skyrim I still find new quests and NPCS.

Pretty good game

M0rten | Nov. 12, 2014 | See all M0rten's reviews »

This game is an deep RPG with a huge open world. I think it pretty much deserves a classic title, as it definitely defined the future of many other games in the genre. I loved the game, I would play it again, but it just takes so much time..

P.S.: Don't mess up like I did, if you want to put mods on the game wait with them till you had one play-through. If you are focusing on mods you will miss, the game. Thats how you can get pretty bored, pretty fast with an awesome game.

One of the greatest games of ALL TIME

Kveni | Nov. 4, 2014 | See all Kveni's reviews »

When I first started playing Skyrim, I was a little bit scared that they were going to massively change the feeling of the series, just because it looked a little darker from the trailers, but let me tell you, this game is an addition to the series that gives Elder Scrolls fans an AMAZING experience. I have EASILY put more than 200 hours in this game, and own it both on Xbox 360, and PC for the mods and everything else, if you're PC can run it, get on PC. Trust me when I say this, EVERYTHING about this game is amazing, from wandering across the lands, to exploring deep dungeons, this game is a MASTERPIECE!

Epic adventure with replayability

goombakong | Nov. 1, 2014 | See all goombakong's reviews »

I have been playing this game for around a month now and it is a definite must have for any pc gamer. While for other platforms this title ages due to the fantastic community of fans who continue to provide exciting mods it is able to compete with any 2014 top class title. I have around 20 mods personally and the game looks fantastic and is extremely immersive. Due to the many different tactics that can be used to play this title it deserves at least a second play though and for the most part you can get a completely different experience. So to summarize this s an excellent game with a fantastic community surrounding it.

Almost as good as its predecessor.

RavenRayn | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all RavenRayn's reviews »

This game almost lived up to name of the game before it. It's a great game, but if you have extra money laying around and you had to buy a game, I'd better suggest Oblivion. If you already have that, though, you would probably still enjoy Skyrim. I will tell you that this game is insanely hyped, and not quite worthy of all that, but it is still a good rpg. Many ways to create your character and a lot of fun to fight your enemies, be they dragons, undead, or just the local townsfolk.
