Ok, maybe this post shouldn’t really be in my US section, but I couldn’t be bothered to create a new blog and find a new URL for it, blah blah, yeah, I’m just plain lazy.
I thought this was worth mentioning since this game is effectively taking up all my spare time when I’m not at work. For me, this is the best game this year, along with Batman – Arkham City. Here’s what I liked about the game.
It’s a single player RPG just like previous Elder Scrolls title so I knew what to expect since I had played Morrowind and Oblivion. At the start, you can pick a race from a variety. Each race has their own default attributes, example, High Elf has more initial Magicka. This was the obvious choice for me since I was going to play a mage. I had played a sneaky thief armed with a bow in previous titles so I’d thought it would be a nice change.
The Skyrim world is vast, scattered with cities, caves, ruins, keeps, and much more. The cloud and water effects are great to watch and they run by, and when you’re traveling up mountains and look down, you can really see how much detailed they’ve put into the world.
Like all RPGs, there’s a main quest that takes you through the story. When you fancy a break from the story, you can attempt the side quests and there are just so many of them. I swear, each time I complete a quest, I somehow gain 3 more quests.
The thing I enjoy most, is seeing dragons in the game, yes, dragons instantly makes games 100 times better! they are a sight to watch as they circle above you, and when they engage you in battle, that’s when the fun begins.
