“Fus Ro DAH !!!”
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is an ultra immersive, open world, role playing game and the 5th installment of the ever growing Elder scroll series created by Bethesda Game studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Recently the very game developers has released news about the special edition which would feature updated graphics such as volumetric God rays, dyanamic depth of field and so much more which makes the already pretty game even more prettier and also allows next gen gameplay.
The game revolves around the story of the dragonborn coming to stop the world from ending. The story does have a definitive ending but the way to get to that definitve ending is totally upto you. Every playthrough of this game is unique and is not fixed to one act. The player is given full free will in the game world and there is almost zero restrictions in the game.
The game consist of a wide variety of mechanics which vary from invasions to as minor as cooking. There is no fixed character style to beat this game hence making it a game which actually adapts to your play style which in turn makes the game surprisingly not to have a steep learning curve.
The game also makes sure that you never feel overwhelmed with the in game mechanics and actually brings an harmony in between all the mechanics which even makes the game a challenge to play even for players who have been playing the game for a really long time.
The game is also steeped with lore and story hence making the game into a really interesting one rather than the usual rpgs where the game ends with the main quest line.
Even after the final story boss of the game, it still delivers on its expectations and makes the gamer feel like as if he/she is part of a real nordic world. The in game visuals are stunning and rarely does one faces glitches or visual bugs but one should expect some especially with a game of such size and calibre. The soundtrack is simply breathtaking as it makes the gamer feel the harmony of a peaceful landscape with the Aurora Borealis in the sky or to feel even the heat and grit of battles of epic proportions.
The game also comes with three DLCs which are Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire. They should be bought separately unless buying the legendary edition which packs these three DLCs (which are totally worth playing) into a neat package.
The only negative part is that the graphic properties of the game is not par with the current games of today. But that negative point will soon be gone as Bethesda will release the remastered version. Hence allowing me to give this game a well deserved 10 out of 10 for the amazing game it is.
