Pros Great Gameplay
Bad Language toggle, so no bad words are said by the game
full virtual world, not backdrops
one of the best games in the past 10 years at least
great variety of character types and playstyles to chose from.
Cons bugs, glitches, the usual, also some problems with items not appearing, broken quests, etc.
Summary You are a character in an immense 3d virtual world, and the savior of it. As Dovahkiin, you are the only one who can kill once-and-for-all Alduin The World-Eater. Overall, an amazing game, but be prepared for utter addiction and/or obsession with it.
Pros Expansive world. Beutiful settings. Crafty story telling. Ridiculously large amount of things to do and places to go. You customize your charachter to fit your specific play style. This may be the most immersive game ever concieved.
Cons As has become a hallmark of enormous Bethesda Titles there are glitches (to Bethesdas credit they have been progressively fixing them with patches but the game out of the box has some real technical flaws).
Summary This game will swallow your life. This game is not for the Saturday afternoon casaul encounter gamer. If you don't have a good deal of free time you may want to shy away from this title. That is about the only reason.
The Elder Scrolls V, SKYRIM is a prodigious undertaking by a team with a proven track record for making insanely deep RPG's. Bethesda does not disappoint.
SKYRIM will get under your skin. The feeble character you start the game with doesn't stay that way, by the end you will have crafted a character strengthend by your own particular playing style. The character progression feels impactful. The enemies you face are formidable and plentiful. The sheer mass of quests and tasks you will have can be almost overbearing, but that's part of the appeal here. You will find yourself getting sidetracked more than once on your way through the game however the game scales nicely enough that you almost always feel rewarded for divergent exploration.
If you have the money to spend and you're looking for a new game here it is.
I can't say that there was nothing negative about my experience. There were a few items that piqued my ire during the gameplay.
The use of smithing, enchanting to create your items can outstrip the value of anything else you will "find" after you raise these skills up to their maximum. This is not a wholely bad thing since you will be allowed to craft the items you wish in keeping with your playstyle however I felt a more "Diabloesque" route would have been a better fit here. I personally feel the best items should be the relics you unearth during your travels, but such is not the case here.
The games moral center is skewed. It felt to me that the game almost encouraged sadisism, treachery, and greed. This is I'm sure due partially to the open nature of the choices they offer the player. You are always allowed to have your character walk away in disgust, it's just that you are rewarded more regularly and more handsomely for a playstle that leans towards evil. The good hearted will find themselves passing up some of the games best offerings both in the way of intersting quest lines and in way of loot.
Maybe they'll fix these in The Elder Scrolls VI when it's released in 3 or 4 more years. They are personal gripes though more than actual knocks on the game. The smithing/enchanting/alchemy systems have a nice synergy that makes your charachter feel like he's really earning the tremendous power you are creating. The open nature of the games fixed sequences and quests as well as the radiant quest system all work to make the experience fun and full of options that carry a wieght to them.
SKYRIM is awesome, If you feel even the slightest inclination towards playing an RPG of any sort, get it.
Easily 10 out 10 here.
Pros -The gameplay mechanics,you can use both hands and combine spells or weapons for more damage,feels amazing and empowering.
-Excellent and improved graphics for it's size.
-Value!..this game it's extremely huge and it has hundreds of hours of content.
Cons -A few bugs here and there ..but they're not worth mentioning since it is a huge game you have a lot of awesome stuff in it.
-In my opinion the main story was amazing ,but not as epic as I thought it would be ,I thought it could use work.
Summary Overall an extraordinary game ,and probably one of the best games of the decade next to Fallout 3,Oblivion among others. Since I started playing I felt like I had just stepped into another world ,a world where anything is possible ,from magic to swordsmanship ..you can choose to be whoever you want to be ,from a sneaky thieve to a powerful warrior or even a masterful wizard and everything in between ..create your own armor or weapons from metals that you can mine yourself .The possibilities are endless ,as you venture deep into Skyrim you will find yourself lost in it's natural ancient beauty losing all track of time ,you can choose to take on many quests and fight many foes as you explore all of it's amazing cities ,the more you use your skills the faster you level up ,the leveling system is fun as you level up you gain perk points to spend on the perk trees and improve your abilities even farther and with the new fast menu you can access the world map ,your inventory ,your magic and active effects easier than ever ...this is not a game but an experience ,therefore this game will be remembered for years to come as one of the best ever made.
Pros Graphics, the way of leveling up, weapons, missions, the graphics on the dragons and other creatures are awesome! Everything is awesome!
Cons I can't think of anything bad about it.
Summary BEST GAME EVER! I went from playing Fable 2 all the time, to MW3, then when Skyrim came out no one could get me off the 360. It's my all time favorite game, I don't think any other game could replace it (other then MW3).

Pros Everything about, and i like how fast travel is in it now, now dont get me wrong I like dungeon clearing like everyone else but some times, places are just to far to run.
Cons The only con i can think of in this game is, if u have someone following you and you go into a room and they stand right in the door way so you can't get out,lol.
Summary Buy this game you won't regret it. This was my first role playing game and I loved it, i can't stop playing.
