This is my first time writing a review on gamefly and for all the good reasons. This new installment of the Elder Scrolls series is a sure game of the year and will be the most talked about game for years to come. The gameplay is spot on with unlimited amount of controls and a vast amount of land with stunning graphics. This is a game you will want to keep because the amount of thing you can do is never-ending. You'll be amazed by this game i promise you that.
First I just want to say that i have played Morrowind and Oblivion and Skyrim tops both of them. Skyrim has an infinate number of sidequests. This is made by the Radiant A.I. system. You should also know that the world of SKyrim is huge and after playing for 30 hours I still have yet to visit every city. Other notable additions would be hundreds of new voice actors which is a great step from the 11 or so actors from Oblivion. The graphics of Skyrim are also very good. They may not be as amazing as Crysis but considering the size, they are awesome. Finally the combat has been overhauled. No longer can you back pedal at the same speed as you could go forward and the addition of dual weilding spells or swords helps vastly. You can bash with your shield or weapon, thereby stunning the enemy and preventing them from striking the character.
All in all Skyrim is an amazing game, sure to be a game of the year nominee, and for anyone looking for a great rpg or just a change of pace from MW3 or BF3, this is the game to get.
Skyrim is in my top 5 of all time and I have only been playing it for 3 days now...Its such a amazing blend of Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas. They guys at Bethesda are at the peak of their game and only going up. I am a Fallout junkie and Skyrim is blowing me away, which means the next Fallout game should just blow me away.
