The next installment in the critically acclaimed Elder Scrolls series is finally here: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people.

The Elder Scrolls told of their return. 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.

Epic fantasy reborn: Skyrim reimagines the open-world fantasy epic, pushing the gameplay and technology of a virtual world to new heights

    Live another life, in another world: Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want

    • the legendary freedom of choice, storytelling, and adventure of The Elder Scrolls is realized like never before

    All new graphics and gameplay engine: Skyrim's new game engine brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, and ancient dungeons

      You are what you play: Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. The new character system allows you to play any way you want and define yourself through your actions

        Dragons return: Battle ancient dragons like you've never seen. As Dragonborn, learn their secrets and harness their power for yourself

         Game broken on PS3

        | | See all GSM187's reviews (1)

        Works fine for a while, but after some playtime you will get severe gamebreaking framerate drops and freezes... The 360 version has the same issues as well, but they take a while longer to get as bad as on the PS3... 80 hours in, level 31, game is now unplayable....
        DO NOT BUY THIS FOR THE PS3!

         Best game i have ever played.

        I have played well over 100 hours on this game, have a level 50 character, and have save files well over 10 mega-bytes. I have seen no such "slide-show" lag, aside from the odd stutter every now and then the game runs as smoothly as any other. I absolutely loved this game and cannot wait till the DLC's come out!

         Beware!!!

        This game has quite a few game breaking bugs which include the frame rate dropping so low it becomes a slide show, quests your unable to finish, the game crashing forcing your to restore & check for corrupted data but to name a few. So far there's no sign of a patch to fix these, avoid at all costs. It's a shame because it's a great game.

         The most overrated game ever.

        The game is good till you reach about level 30. Then you realise how much time you've wasted on it and think, jeez I have better stuff to do than constantly hack at a dragon, or make shed loads of leather armour just so i can get my smithing skill up.

        The environments are good but after a while you don't really care for walking places as it's all the same, just look out your window if you want good scenes. Eventually you just start fast travelling everywhere, like you get a quest that in reality would take quite some time cos you have to walk there but nah, just fast travel grab whatever's in the cave and blurt. max time of about 15 minutes, try doing that 100 times, get's kinda boring.

        I'm level 40 odd now and regret asking for it for a bday gift cos i'd feel bad trading it in. It's so boring at this stage, nothing is a challenge and I don't even have the best equipment. All I find myself doing is shouting people off cliffs cos it's kinda fun watching them fall down.

        Not forgetting the countless glitches, and the annoying way your character kinda slides across the floor cos walking is just to uncool for this game.

        yeah basically not a very engaging game after a while and you'll regret the hours you spent playing it when you could be getting some real action. I actually give it two stars.

        Peace x

         Avoid like the plague. It wont be patched for weeks.

        Let me be honest from the off - this game is broken and should never have been released. I bought the PS3 version as a gift but now have to return it. The game is virtually unplayable. Anyone who says otherwise has not played it for more than 30 hours (it is supposed to last 300). The problem is partly down to the PS3 and the reason that the 360 is less afffected. The PS3 has less memory performance than the 360 and although its processor is more powerful the memory is what is used to buffer everything. Once Saves get bigger than 5mb the problem starts and once they get to 10 its like watching a slideshow. The game stutters badly and you can barely move. It has been patched about 3 times but still not fixed. Worryingly the fact it is a hardware limitation means some are speculating it can never be fixed without rebuilding it from the ground up. I strongly advise avoiding this and either buy something else, the 360 version, or save the money til the Game of The Year version is out! Seriously this is all over BBC technology pages, forums and may be the reason the price dropped so quickly. Its a class A game that should be the best thing ever released on PS3 but right now you are throwing your money away. The patch file to fix this is going to be huge!
