How we rate the games?
The Elder Scrolls Skyrim is one of the best games of all times, seriously. Only downside of the game is graphics and sometimes its bugs, optimization which might hurt the final rating of the game. As far as I am concerned, it is really hard to hate this game since it is an extremely huge map, with amazing stories to tell your friends too, myths and much more. Another thing I have to mention before I even start, is that even if the game has a massive map and a tremendous amount of quests that feel like they are not the same, the whole logic of the game is based on classes where they just run stuff a lot of times and that's it! This just means that the same thing, in a graphical way is exactly the same and normally with the same gameplay. It might get too much repetitive and you might get bored after playing some time.
Our review starts here, where you will understand a huge amount of work on our part, because this game really deserves it. Every once in a while, for the best games, especially those for the entire year, I personally like to add a video with much more minutes of gameplay. Lucky this time, I was able to add a 30 minute video (approximately). The game is extremely huge, so don't expect it to complete everything in a day, week or month! A lot of glorious gamers have tried to complete this game, but that is nonsense, they where killed while they where playing... err I mean in the game. The game itself has methods of transportation like the horse which will make you travel faster from one place to another, there is a cabriolet (carriage) to help you fast travel around important cities and you can explore the same area using the fast travel option from the map. It really depends if you want to enjoy running around and killing enemies on foot, or just teleport yourself as soon as possible and finish your quests in no time. There is a lot to review, so lets start with gameplay.
The gameplay is actually one of the main factors that made this game stand out from the other games. You can play in first person shooter, but you can move your camera with the wheel and view yourself in third person. The game has a lot of enemies, from human to the legendary dragons, but the true idea shrinks down to between evil and good where you can't really tell what is up to anyone, unless they attack you directly or you obey their orders. Myths tell a story about a dragonborn who will come to life and will defeat the evil dragon, by using the elder scroll. This is pretty interesting and it feels just like in medieval times. There has been 2 years since this game was released, but still players are playing it, with millions of players each month. Amazing stories, where you get the possibility to learn a lot, even in real life from other creatures reactions. You can buy your own home and smith your preferred weapon by adding minerals and merging them with other equipment. Adding armor to your inventory is a nice thing too, but what is most interesting, is that you can use your magic skills to craft effects for your equipment, simply making you invincible. There are a lot of quests, but if you choose the main path, you will find yourself in front of the terrible dragon and will defeat him once and for all. By the way, you can even use magic, or combine the same magic spells to create a more powerful one. Each time you use your magic spell, your mana will get depleted a little by little. There are some other abilities which have to do with the zodiac signs, giving you more abilities to your player and making the game more interesting, especially when you want to level up, as fast as possible. This game has a lot in common with nearly all the games out there, but you will still have a lot of work ahead of you, if you just started the game.
I couldn't mention everything that is in the game, but you can imagine that there is a lot more to experience, like leveling up spells and using less mana every time they get used. The biggest problem with this game, are its graphics. There is nothing wrong with its optimization of the graphics, but there is very poor textures, lightning and there are a bunch of more bad stuff. Even though the graphics are not its best, there are still some cool features like the water, which would happen to be very realistic. You would need a common graphics processing unit to make you able to play this game, but this does not really mean that the game is perfectly optimized, but the graphics won't need a lot from your part. When it comes to modelling of the players, that this is one of the most important points in the game. First thing you would notice immediately, is the dragon model, which would give the game a good point, but that is not the only thing to tell, because there are much more modelling stuff, which of I won't be discussing, since they are in big amounts.
Optimization might get a little tricky, since you would need to update the game with some kind of patch. To add your player a better looking armor, you could download a mod manager and see for yourself what nice-looking stuff would come up with this great game engine. There are a lot a lot of people in the world that work for adding new mods and you can download totally free around the internet. The creators of the game, thought about the bad textures and added a new extension to the game, the high-resolution texture which is around 4GB (GB stands for gigabyte of memory) more added to the game. Even though it might sound great, the overall opinion of the people is just nice, not really great. You won't see things which would make it amazing, so you would need a lot more generations of this game to be added on later years, with much better graphics. I don't really think that there is going to be a better game than this one, since it had nearly everything possible. There is even a famous car mod on the internet, which would make the game, clearly much more interesting. Others say that there should be a dragon instead of the horse, so you can fly around cities.
Everything else in the game is ok, nothing too much spicy and nothing wrong, just a simple ok. This is my personal opinion though and you can share your own on our forums! Good luck with this great game!
