BitSaturn64167's review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Xbox 360)


“A great game!”

Written on: 20/06/2016 by BitSaturn64167 (4 reviews written)

Skyrim is a great RPG released by Bethesda game studios. It has a lot of content, and I think it is one of the best games ever. And believe me, I've played a lot of them.

Skyrim is has great gameplay, much better than its other Elder Scrolls predecessors. Combat feels less clunky, and moving around feels smoother. You can still be over-encumbered, but when people complain, just think: You are being given a starting weight of 300. Giving most gamers can (in real life) lift about 100kg, this is good.

There is a main questline in the game, involving dragons. I try to make my reviews spoiler free, but most people will progress to this point in an hour or so.

There is also factions, each with their own storyline. You can also do Radiant quests (quests that never stop) which involves a new feature, the radiant AI. These factions are The Companions, The College of Winterhold, The Thieves Guild and the Dark Brotherhood. There is also a civil war questline you can get involved in, by going to Windhelm or Solitude. There are some other smaller factions, like the Blades, Greybeards and Bards College.

Other than questlines, there is over 100 side quests and miscellaneous tasks for you to do.

There is also DLC quests, which also have 2 questlines, and factions in the Dawnguard add on.

Skyrim's world is huge. With over 150 primary locations and 200 secondary locations, you will never be bored on Skyrim. These locations range from cities, towns, villages, hamlets, caves, giant camps, dwarven ruins, Nordic dungeons, civil war camps and dragon lairs! Most of these locations have a related quest, whether it is a faction quest, miscellaneous task or a pure dungeon quest. After hundreds of hours playing, only a few locations were plain old caves.

Skyrim is buggy. Very buggy. And whilst it improves on previous Elder Scrolls games, it still is sunk in glitches. Some are minor, like NPCs getting stuck to the ground, but some are major, like a corrupted save. You will waste a lot of time looking at loading screens, as every location, house or interior location you enter or exit, a 30 second long loading screen appears. Why?

Skyrim is a great game, despite all the bugs. The content and quests win me over, and on my a time list it scores 3rd. Not bad.
