The Elder Scrolls series is a beloved franchise for many loyal Bethesda fans. The most notable games within the series are Morrowind, Oblivion and the more recent Skyrim. Skyrim was one of the most anticipated games of the year during its release.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a open world “sandbox” game where you play as “The Dragonborn”. A legend within the land of Skyrim of a being who is born into the world with the soul of a dragon and is able use their language in battle. This is where you come in as the newest dragonborn,who has only recently come into Skyrim during the civil war between the Imperials and Stormcloaks and you have been accused of helping the rebellious Stormcloaks.
Skyrim is a game rich with story and adventure. Where you can be slaying dragons in one minute and seducing a merchant girl in the next minute. The game hosts thousands of hours of game play.
The in game character models leave much far wanted. Mainly due to how ugly most characters look inside the game.
The game also has a very thriving modding scene on the PC even after all this time. The mods range from simple re-textures and redone animations to full on dungeons and story lines. The mods range from being down right silly to being just gorgeous.
However be warned this is game is notorious for its long loading screens and laggy moments.
Review: Amazing game and a great buy on the PC. However avoid the console version of the game if all possible because half the time you are playing will be on loading screens. There are also some very buggy moments such as if you get stuck you will need to reload a previous save file. Suggested to buy this game on sale during a Steam holiday sale.
