// Comparable to: Baldur's Gate, Elder Scrolls, Neverwinter Nights, Demon Souls, Dark Souls, Dragon Age, RPG, Action/Adventure...

// Rating scales 10: Top of Titles <---> 1: Disappointing

Graphics(Environment): 10
Graphics being a major part of the current HD advancement and environment being a factor in immersion quality for RPGs, Skyrim did an outstanding job at generating the believable icy mountains of the land of the Norse. Inns to icebergs: all make for great global travel points, overall, deserving the highest rating for it's quality.

Customization: 9
Shy from being beyond expectations. Taking into account: it offers 10 races, 18 areas of class customization, guardian stones, gear, weaponry, abilities, and companions. The only thing that seemed lacking on the board was the given perks. 251 sum perks and most just seem flaccid. Sure I became a Master or Expert, but what do I have to show for it?

Immersion: 9
I hardly have any quarrels with immersion except that when reaching boundaries the prompt doesn't seem relative and overused character voices bring down personality.

Graphics(Detail): 8.5
Great character, ground, shadow, dust, armor, ... detail in rendering, however some of the menu's spells seemed like lame representations.

Animation sound: 8
Having to hear character personalities reused was redundant and almost annoying at times. They seemed to negate some progression.

Soundtrack: 9
Many points seemed Epic. Some points seemed too Epic and inappropriate.

Spawns/Beasts/Bosses: 7
Fighting a dragon just didn't seem to fit the scale. Some of the mini-bosses were creative battles but disappointing which rates a 2. The variety seemed under par compared to other titles.

Ingenuity: Yes/No - No, though this was an original concept it had bugs however that were never confronted.

Game play: 4.5
Bugs, glitch, twitch, crash.

Replay: Yes/No - Yes, as a fan of RPGs this one is a good one.

We all know it's an amazing game and really no sensible person should say anything less. If you give this game a 1 then you really should go fall down a rather deep hole with slim chance of getting out. With that said.......................................I used to tell arrow in the knee jokes, but then someone took my sweet roll.
I also used to tell arrow in the knee jokes right up until i took an arrow in the esophagus after telling one just 72 too many times...

To me this game was overall a very good game. the graphics are insanely good, but like in most free roam games there is some lagging if you play for a while. the world of skyrim is a huge world that will give you hours of free roaming fun. In this game you can switch your fighting styles at anytime from sword and shield to dual wielding magic. in my opinion i give tis game a 10 out of 10. this game is a buy.
