"Phenomenal!!"
5 stars"

Review by Michael on 9th May, 2012

I'm not generally a fan of dragons and magic and games of the like but this game blew me away. Everything about the game is great from the stunning graphics to the share size of the world you explore. There is so much to do and so many side missions to complete. This game will certainly kill many many hours. Buy it you won't regret it.

Review by Joshua on 14th April, 2012

If you love role playing games this is the game for you. I have been playing this game for 70 hours and still haven't clocked it. How many games can you say that about -!!

If you buy this game you are defiantly getting your moneys worth out of it

It arrived, I opened it, I started it at 4:25 Friday and finally went to bed for a well earned sleep Sunday at 5pm. Enough said!

"Epic"

Review by David on 12th November, 2011

Waited a loooong time to finally play this game. It has lived up to every piece of hyped-up goodness that was promised and more. If you only buy one game a year/decade make this the one and only consideration

"Fus Roh Dah!!!"
5 stars"

Review by Kaleb on 17th May, 2012

Skyrim is an awesome games. It is an open world game and has a vast area to explore, which consists of tundra, woodlands, caves, cities, villages and mountains. Dragons also make an apperance in the game, as the main antagonists. New features to the game include, perks and shouts.

Pros:

  • Vast open world
  • Dragons
  • Perks
  • Shouts
  • Amazing skill trees.
  • Minimum of 200 hours of quests
  • Amazing Graphics
  • Awesome sounds

Cons:

  • A few glitches, but gives for a good few laughs. (eg. Flying mammoths)
  • Can lag considerably after about 60 hours (mainly PS3 version) On Xbox 360 the lag is hardly noticable.

"Awesome!...game of the decade!!"
5 stars"

Review by Carl on 16th May, 2012

Simply put, this game is by far the best game I have played in years! If you have not bought this yet DO IT..it's one of those games that are simply a must buy, and besides the price now is very reasonable for what you get. Hours and hours of game play.

"If Oblivion put you off, Skyrim will get you to come back."
5 stars"

Review by Brent on 7th February, 2012

I was someone who was disapointed with Oblivion, I found the non human style characters to look laughably bad and the musical score to be average at best. The gameplay seemed very stiff and wooden to me, and lastly the main quest/story felt really displaced. I didn't feel like my character was really important at all.

In Skyrim, all that has changed for me. Right off the bat, making my character was fun as I wanted to make an Orc that I could take seriously, and I could. The music felt as big as the events around you, from subtle whilst sneaking through a fortress to epic when duelling a dragon. It seemed a more fluid game in terms of gameplay, as well as making the games third person view playable now. Lastly, the story really draws you in, making you feel a true part of it.

If you have been sitting on the fence about this game, it is one where I would believe the hype. Skyrim is truly a great fantasy rpg.

"Say goodbye to your real life."
5 stars"

Review by Travis on 17th October, 2012

I was first introduced to the Elder Scrolls universe via Oblivion and loved it. Skyrim is by far the best open world rpg game I have ever played. The graphics are gorgeous, combat system is fluid and easy to learn and the storylines (should you decide to explore them) are entertaining and in some cases comical in a good way. If you want a game worth every dollar you spend on it and more then get this glorious gem of a game.

"Amazing!"
5 stars"

Review by Alana on 14th July, 2012

This game is packed with action and adventure. I personally enjoy this game because of the fact that it feels worthy of its price. A game that will take alot of your time to complete. The graphics are also magnificent – the scenery and details are something you need to check out if you haven't already. The only downside to this game would have to be the loading screen, it takes quite awhile to load compared to the pc version. Overall, if you are the kind of gamer who enjoys action and adventure then you should definitely try it out (:

"FAN-BLOODY-TASMICAL!"
5 stars"

Review by Shaun on 24th January, 2012

I've racked up well over 500 hours of gameplay on Skyrim over 7 different characters and I still cannot stop playing! The graphics make Oblivion look like it was made on Nintendo 64, the gameplay and combat is so intense and immersive that you'll find yourself cursing the descendants of your foes. And when that dragon comes crashing down behind you out of nowhere and starts torching a village- You WILL need a clean pair of undies. I don't just recommend this game, I put to you this point: It WILL change your life.

"New favorite game-"
5 stars"

Review by James on 27th December, 2011

This is possibly my new favorite game. This, Gears of War 3 and Forza Motorsport 4 are the best games for Xbox 360 this year (that I've played). There is 300+ hours of game play and just so much to do. Whether you are cooking soup, slaying dragons or simply exploring the huge world that is Skyrim. Worth every cent and more!

5 stars"

Review by michael on 6th February, 2012

this game was breath taking. i first did not want to purchase it because i thought it would be boring and over hyped. however through being convinced by friends, i did buy it and it was one of the best games ive ever played. months down the track and im still trying to complete the endless supply of missions that the game offers. there is so much depth that has been brought into the game to make it so amazing. best game of the year by far. :)

5 stars"

Review by Casey on 9th March, 2013

This game is just amazing there so an infinite number of this to do, especially now that the new dlc's are out. I was hoping that bethsda would deliver on this game and they far exceeded my expectations. I dont think any game can top this.

"Meh"
1 stars"

Review by Simon on 28th February, 2012

A massive step backwards in gaming, I'm going back to Oblivion. Too much of the games basic structure has been taken from Fallout 3 and very little of it blends with what was the brilliant concepts from Oblivion and Morrowind and all of the things that have been taken out, like attributes and many of the skills, the inability to increase jump height and speed is just out right annoying.

In short: Skyrim needs it's own rating system 1=(skyrim) 3=(dog turd) 5=(something that doesnt make me sick)

"Endlessly entertaining"

Review by Dom on 8th July, 2013

Loved Edler Scrolls IV: Oblivion and got this anticipating a great game. I was not disappointed. This is a worthwhile addition to anyones collection. Huge game with literally 100s of hours of game play.
