Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

"Wait, Wait, Wait! Skyrim?! But I have already played and beaten that game, Why are you reviewing it?" This is something you will probably say when you read this, And yes I to have played the shit out of it infact I own it on Xbox and PC and have played and beaten all the current DLC. So why review it? Because its my job on this site (not that im paid) and im already bored of the Super Bowl, So that is why i'm doing this.

Skyrim... Easily one of the best games of 2011 I love this game honestly the only thing I love more is Tilli, Seriously this game is incredible I wish I could just stop the review here and go play some more but alas there are some cons about this game I need to go over....

So yes lets start with the cons of this game that way we can finish on a happy note! The first thing that comes to mind when I play is the bugs. Yes I know that games have bugs but this game has some pretty obvious glitches/bugs, You ever see a horse standing at a 90 degree angle on a mountain? If you have played skyrim you have. Bugs like that make me wonder how this game made it threw beta testing, if it was another game like one that is less popular it would have been shot down faster then my hopes of finding a girlfriend. Though the glitches are annoying most are not game breaking, Yes there are some and yes they really suck, But every Bethesda game has them I had to restart Fallout 3 a few times to beat the god damn story! I never beat the thieves guild in oblivion due to a glitch as well... But don't let these glitches stop you!

Who needs to climb when a horse can just walk up it?

But Like I said every game has bugs it is normal, Now lets move on to the sexy good stuff of the game. This game is just good to look at, I know that sounds stupid but it is Beautiful! currently all these screenshots are from the PC but don't get me wrong the console version both look very nice as well! if you are looking for something to just look at while walking around the snow covered forests of a mystical world then look no farther then this game. 

You know what else is awesome about this game? The combat! I have never had so much fun walking around with a big axe and fighting bandits off from stealing my money! I'm all like "Hey bandit! F**k you!" and boom he is dead and I am looting his corpse for whatever he is carrying. The game also has some really good NPC's that you will run into most with a story of there own, Like a farmer who needs you to go find his sons only to find one dead and the other fighting off bandits with a dagger. Speaking of that farmer there are so many side quests to do, you wont get bored of this game for a long time and if you have the PC version (or are a 1337 HAXOR on the consoles) you can get even more quests for free.

So what is my final say? Well... Go buy this game if you haven't already! It is a fantastic RPG that will keep you entertained for hours at a time. Look I will make it easy for you! Click here to download it on steam, It is that easy! If you play on an Xbox or PS3 then go drive to a video game store and pick it up! I would drive you if I could but im sure most of you are in the UK while im in the USA so yeah... anyways let me sum up this game in 5 words: This game makes me hard.
