Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings the epic fantasy to life in stunning detail.

Who doesn’t want to take another tour through the grand world of Skyrim, you are Dovahkiin, a dragonborn! Shout your way past enemies and customize your own character to explore a vast open-world brimming with life. Since its release in 2011, I’ve spent hundreds of hours in Skyrim. The Special Edition is the perfect reason to dive back into a game that we all love and adore. The Elder Scrolls series set the barometer for how we judge open worlds today.
With vast cities to explore, and including all of Skyrim’s DLC, there’s also a whole host of mods available for the game through Steam Workshop, expanding the possibilities for this game even more! Why not take a dive back into Skyrim and discover something you’ve never seen before? Even after hundreds of hours in the game, I know that I’ve not discovered everything, and the prospect of this edition just makes me want to dive right back in!
With the release of Skyrim Special edition, we took a look out our 5 favorite mods for Elder Scrolls V and what made them great additions to the game!
Skyrim was and still is one of the most incredible role-playing games of all time. It's insanely deep and immersive and I'm sure all of you have played it by now. If you haven't, however, perhaps this isn't the time to buy this yet. Don't get me wrong, I love the game and the new 64-bit engine brings a lot of stability, but for many people, mods are the only way to play, and many of the best mods for the original game haven't been ported yet. As of the time while writing this review, SKSE64 has not been released yet, and many of the greatest mods that come with that script extender wont be ported until it's released. So maybe stick with the original game for now if you're looking for mods. If you're fine with the base game and don't want to mess with mods until later then, sure, go for the Special Edition!
Skyrim is still to this day excellent game with great and huge world to explore and sink yourself into. Special Edition is slight improvement in graphics over the original and that's it - same old bugs with the introduction of many new, annoying ones that won't be fixed by developer. Also, it doesn't support mods from the original, so there is also a need to wait for those to be converted to this one. I can't justify this one for price as high as 30 pounds, especially since Legendary Edition is still playable and has better mod support from community. Grab it when on -50% sale if you didn't play original. If you don't care about graphics, pick up Legendary Edition instead.
Skyrim Special Edition is an enhanced version of the same game released five years ago, but with better graphics, not a bad concept because even though gamers who like to mess with mods could achieve the same or perhaps better effect this often result to game crashes. Now we can experience better without worrying about stability that mods can break. Good version for people who never played Skyrim before.
For all the DLC, modding as well as redone textures Skyrim Special edition is worth every cent. I personally was very intimidated by modding. I'm very glad I picked up SSE as I can now mod with less worrying about corrupting a save.
Nice game, have about 300 hours logged on steam with this game. Probably not been on half of the map yet. A lot of side-quests to do, and when you are travelling to one of them you most likely will find something on the way to distract you. Such as finding a cave to explore, and at the end of the cave there is a giant spider that kills you. So you have to return to the same cave five times before you beat it and reap the rewards. I would recommend this game to everyone unless you are only into solitaire - then this game is not for you.
