Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an RPG released on November 11th, 2011 (to capture the 11/11/11 phenomenon), with the legendary edition released on June 4th, 2013. This marks the fifth game in the series. The game was published and developed by Bethesda. The story takes place 200 years following Oblivion, where a prisoner awaits execution following an attempt at crossing into Skyrim. However, a dragon attacks Helgen, and it’s up to the player (aka Dragonborn) to end Alduin’s reign of terror over Skyrim. Should you take a blade up and meet the challenge, or let Skyrim burn to ashes?

Graphics-The graphics are a huge step up from Oblivion. The characters look more refined, scenery looks fantastic, the environments are more impressive, and the dragons themselves are awesome looking.

Sound-The soundtrack is a classic in its own right. Each song plays at appropriate times, and even if you hear the same song again and again, it never gets stale.

Gameplay-For the most part, a big step from Oblivion. The option of having to dual wield will feel awkward at first, but after a while, it becomes second nature (the same thing applies to dual casting as well). Combat as a whole remains the same, but feels a little smoother than before. Some skills have been tweaked (for example, improving your smithing skills is no longer on the fly with repair hammers. You now have to visit blacksmiths if you want to improve your smithing). Speaking of skills, the number of skills was reduced from 21 in Oblivion to 18 in Skyrim.

Dragons-The dragons are the highlight of the game. When you fight one, be prepared for the fight of your character’s life. Having them in the game was an awesome idea.

Overall-If Skyrim was a painting; then this game is a masterpiece; worthy of anyone’s collection.

Score: 5/5
