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

        And it really is. Whatever way you look at this game, it's a cut above the rest. The amount of customisation in this game is, to be quite honest staggering. Right off the bat you will notice that the game has improved ten fold. The graphics are much better in comparison to Oblivion's, although this was to be expected. Combat is much smoother, both from a 1st and 3rd person view. The dual wield feature allows you to combine sword and magic, double magic etc and these can greatly improve your odds during battle (or decrease them, if you get it wrong!) The improvements on the 3rd person view may seem insignificant but they do a lot to improve the game. As one who played Oblivion from a 3rd person view (or tried to), the movement of the character left a lot to be desired - it's a lot easier to immerse yourself in a game if what you're looking at is more realistic than not. But i digress.

        Those who have already played the game will have noticed the addition of 'perks' to the levelling system - not surprising, the game being made by the same developers of the Fallout series. That said, the perks are a breath of fresh air, and enable you to really get to grips with what you want you character to be. Do you want him to be a smooth talking, masterful pickpocketing archer? Or would you rather him to be a magically potent warrior? The combinations are literally endless, and you'll soon realise you'll be making more than one save on this game.

        One of the best aspects of Skyrim is the spontinaity of combat. You can be riding across a plain, watching a group of giants herd mammoth (quite a sight to behold), and a dragon will swoop in out of nowhere, dispatch of the other creatures before turning it's attention towards you. And despite the various expletives that will run through your mind at that point, you'll realise that Bethesda really went to town on this game.

        Another thing you will quickly establish is the map - IT'S HUGE. To ride across half of it (taking into account the various battles) took about 40 minutes. When you really think about it, that's quite substantial, and you could be forgiven for thinking it'd get tedious. Of course, the fast travel option is available, but there's more than enough to keep your attention even as you just wander/ride through the wilderness.

        The various guilds give you plenty of choice should you want to specialise in a particular trade. Without giving too much away, there's plenty of bonuses to be obtained should you go through a guild's quest, some much more startling that others!

        In all honesty, there are few things to genuinely complain about. The loading times can be quite long at times but, this would only be a problem if the gameplay itself wasn't worth waiting for - and it is. There will be the odd occasion where you'll walk through a village and see an NPC hanging out of a wall, or stuck on another NPC but, to be quite honest, these do little to take away from the fact that Skyrim is a truly awesome game.

        One warning: be prepared to call into work sick, as it's very easily to lose track of time while playing!

         Must buy this!

        Fallout3 and oblivion def tow of the best games ever, but this is top of the tree. Forget getting MW3 or BF3 this is THEE game! you can do literally anything and make the adventure your own (i love that you can become a werewolf!) and you can fully customise your character anyway you want. The only down side i have to this game is that there is not enough time between girlfriend family and work to play this but every chance i get im away to skyrim exploreing! buy this game!

         Simply Brilliant

        This game is outstanding in every way imaginable and I don't have to think twice to say that it is quite simply the BEST EVER game of any genre by an absolute mile.

        Insane amount of customization, achingly beautiful Skyrim world, superb plot. It really is quite breathtaking and I just can't not stop playing it.

        When you see the Northern Lights in the sky or the two moons you realise that a great deal off painstaking effort has gone in to creating an amazingly detailed game world.

        I have been playing this heavily for weeks and I am still finding new things, still being surprised, still gob-smacked by every aspect of the game.

        It is absolutely brilliant in every way and I am not exaggerating.

         A Bargain at full price!!

        I admit, I do tend to wait for a game I like to come down in price, regardless of what game it is. Skyrim is the first game that breaks this rule. It has to be one of the best games i've ever seen and is well worth the money even at full price.

         More Awesomeness from Bethesda!!!

        The best game series possible of all time has just got better!
        Simply put the best game ever to grace any gaming platform.
        Everything about it is bigger and better than anything else out there.

        Is this the Game of the Year? You bet your ass it is, possible game of the decade!
