Story: 9 --- Though there are many interesting quests in Skyrim the main overarching story suffers for it. Still, the game is way longer than most of its ilk so it scores extra points for that. --- Visuals: 10 --- The default Skyrim is great and the modded Skyrim is absolutely breathtaking. --- Sound: 7 --- Skyrim has a pretty good range of very good music and most of the voice acting is pretty good. But there are only a half dozen actors and you will recognize them all immediately. --- Combat: 8 --- If you've played more than a few video games and don't hate FPS games, Skyrim plays very well. I wish other game makers could do this as well. That said, the enemy AI is stone stupid and easy to manipulate. Which is a big disappointment in a game like this. Even dragons quickly become easy to defeat. --- Fun Factor: 10 --- This is a very fun game. One of the most enjoyable RPG's since um Oblivion... --- Unmodded Overall: 8 --- This is my review of the unmodded version of Skyrim. The major points keeping it from being excellent are the VO and poor enemy AI. --- Modded overall: 10 --- Add in mods and you instantly turn every score up by at least one point. If you aren't modding Skyrim, you are missing out on one of the best RPG gaming experiences of all time. My suggestion, improve the AI, turn up the visual juice (if your PC can take it) download a new music pack and get a skill overhaul. If you do those things you will have an unparalleled gaming experience. --- Overall Overall: 9: -- In the end, making this game go from very good to amazing you have to mod it. So I choose the easy middle-ground. Though I really do need to reiterate that you should buy Skyrim and download some mods from the Skyrim Nexus site it for a 10 star gaming experience.

Ok, nothing is ever going to be perfect but Skyrim is prettty darn close to it. Runs awesomely, especially on the Xbox which was a slight surprise considering the history for bugs with Bethesda and consoles. Beautiful open world with sights and sounds that really pull you in.

WHY I LIKE THIS GAME SO MUCH? Well besides Fallout 3, it is the only game where I've logged over 100 hours enjoyably playing. I have 170+ with my first character and about 60+ with my second.

Pros: Awesome game, beautiful world.

Cons: Once you hit that 70+ hours, you kinda expect it to never end but when you've compleated almost every quest the game will leave you wanting MORE!!!! its not really a bad thing.

Lasting Apeal: ummmm RPG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perfection 10/10

I love the duel weild. Sword in one hand spell in the other. There is so much to do in the game. From cooking to alchemy, from stealing to murder its all fun. Bethesda did not let us down with this great game.

This is one of my all time favorite games. This is the latest of 5 games by Bethesda Softworks in a series. It uses basically the same game engine as Oblivion , Fallout 3 ,and Fallout NV.
It is supported just like the previously mentioned games by an official game Modification web site sponsored by Bethesda Softworks ,
" skyrim.nexusmods "
were you can download 1000's of Free modifications for this game made by other players. Nexus mods makes these games worth
double what they would be worth normally.

If you are on the fence about this game go to their web site and check out what other players are doing with this game.


Almost everything, within reason, in this game can be changed to your liking.

If you have a higher end computer and you like RPG's
This is the game for you.

If you have an average PC, you can turn down the graphic settings and the game is very stable, and still quite a lot of fun.

The only drawback to this game is that you need a " Steam " account to activate and launch this game.
Steam has its pros and cons. Steam does not cost anything to join and does not add to cost of the game.

If you buy this game you will not be disappointed.
This is one of those games that has people missing days from work and school.
Get this one and or Fallout 3.
Fallout 3 is my favorite RPG so far.

This game initially disappointed at the very beginning with some pretty clumsy character animation. For as big a game as this is, I'd expect to see character animation as good as Uncharted series, but these are minor complaints. All in all, this is a breathtakingly beautiful gaming experience. The environments are astounding, sound is excellent. Combat could use a little polish, especially when you see whats possible with games like Arkham City in terms of hand to hand combat. But its without question an epic game, just disappointing someone like EA does not seem to go the little extra mile everywhere.
