"...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.

Open world adventure

vipe_1 | Dec. 16, 2014 | See all vipe_1's reviews »

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has built up quite the reputation as being an expansive open world adventure with great effects and story. I will tell you that is all true, and overall Skyrim is a great and worth it game.

Skyrim places you into a large map, complete with large towns, villages, tombs and other points of interest. Particularly interesting is the diverse areas in the map. There are plains, high/snow covered mountains and dense forests. The whole thing is very immersive.

Gameplay otherwise is very similar to the past Elder Scrolls games or the Fallout series. There are several classes, lots of items and weapons, and several different ways to play your way through the quests. Aside from the typical Bethesda bugs and sometimes hilarious results, the game runs well.

I highly recommend this game as a quality open world adventure that will take hours of your time.

A perfect game that comes only once per 5 years

Andreasqiao | Dec. 9, 2014 | See all Andreasqiao's reviews »

This is one of the best game I ever played in whole my gaming time, if not the very best itself !

All aspect of this game ranging from graphics, sound, gameplay and storyline, all are AMAZING. You can be what you want, in fact, you create yourself, you live by your rule and you can do anything that you want. The possibility is boundless.

The title that I write isn't exaggerating, it is really a rare game that can achieve all most important gaming aspect (gameplay, graphics, sound) very close to perfection.

Prepare your life, make sure you know what you will do because once you enter the world of Skyrim, you will NEVER leave it for a very long time!

Second only to Morrowind

heerox328 | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »

Skyrim truly rectified a lot of the issues Oblivion had. Wonky combat. Cookie cutter dungeons. Lackluster main story. Terrible level/gear-scaling. Underwhelming voice overs.

It certainly isn't perfect, and had its fair share of issues, but it's the best TES game since Morrowind. There is something for everybody here and the game is unrivaled when it comes to choice, freedom, and activities.

All of the guilds quests, besides the College of Winterhold, are well-done and professionally executed. The main story is incredible and delightful, even with a lackluster ending boss fight. The combat, class-less, player progression is also more open-ended and player-driven than any TES game going all the way back to Arena.

This game was a game changer and has influenced DAI, TW3, LoZ, and likely many more RPGs coming out. If you do not already own this game, you have been living under a rock. Get it now.

The modding community is also the most dedicated and impressive fan base you will ever meet. You can change almost every facet of the game and make it look better than any game currently on the market if you have the rig to support it. Amazing experience.

Epic toolbox for Epic Fantasy Adventure

KingTed | Dec. 1, 2014 | See all KingTed's reviews »

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is the last entry in the TES series by Bethesda. This time you play the Dovahkiin, the Dragonborn, and your mission is to kill Alduin, the most dangerous dragon that came back in Tamriel.

The world is huge and filled with content. The new perk system is great. However in terms of visuals, gameplay, quest and story, the game is not perfect.

BUT, good news for us, the modding community is very active.

If you have a good rig, you can mod your Skyrim to make it look really close to one of those Next Gen games (Dragon Age Inquisition for example). With mods you can enhanced your gameplay experience by various means. You can add quest and locations (Recently a complete add-on nearly the size of 2-3 Skyrim holds was released!).

If you can mod it, Skyrim is a must have and become one of the best RPGs on PC.

Replayable and Amazing

Freeze256 | Nov. 28, 2014 | See all Freeze256's reviews »

This game is one of my favourite mmo rpgs, its the best one really but thats just my opinion.The map is really huge and never get boring i loved exploring every inch of it.My favourite thing about this game were the dragons.The story isn't really that great but it doesn't matter there are plenty of side quests to keep you company.After many hours of course the game will get boring which is why there are mods.I made my game 10 times more beautiful than it was added lots of new weapons and armour and tons of quests.The community with the mods are keeping this game alive and able to compete with newer titles.The game is great on its own but after you had one play through u should definitely download mods.It has a huge replay-ability and keeps dragging me back to it.
