A review of the video game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim!
Bethesda Game Studios has just released a new chapter in their long-running series called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim! This huge open world / RPG takes place in a visually stunning fictional world, where every new address or environment that enters has a surprise waiting for you. It doesn’t matter if you play the game for a few hours or a few days, there will still be a quest, an item, and / or a character to discover, which will take you into totally new territories and leave you with completely different results.
The different scenic environments in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim consist of rocky mountains, forests, vast fields, and decaying tunnels. Attention to detail brings all environments to life, while stunning visuals complement each scene, leaving you feeling a part of that world. Freedom is a big part of the game, the weather involves the enormity of the world or the way you choose to live in it. You have options which consist of buying a house and living a simple life, living like a criminal and attacking everyone you meet, following the suggested missions or simply wandering the world aimlessly. The game leaves these decisions up to you, ensuring that no two players experience the story in exactly the same way.
The game has several steps to follow, allowing you to decide exactly how you want to progress in the game. At first, all you can choose from is a race (your player character). From there, you can test different skills before choosing the one you want to specialize in. Leveling happens through the use of skills, which means that the more skills you use, the more those levels will increase. Once enough of these skill categories are leveled, your character’s overall level increases. This allows you to make decisions at your own pace and at the right time.
Buff Points are another thing that is achieved by leveling up, allowing you to spend them to learn new skills or save them until you are sure how you want to use them. The more perks you use, the better your overall combat will be. The spell system has been improved, allowing you to cast a different spell on each hand. Another update that can’t be put aside are Dragon Shouts. Dragon Shouts give you the ability to breathe fire, slow down time, fire force waves, scream ice, and call out dragons. By searching environments for word walls, you can learn more screaming that adds to your abilities. Before you can activate any screams, you must fight a dragon and take its soul. Dragons are all over Skyrim, so it’s pretty easy to find and fight a dragon.
A review of the video game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, convinced us that it is a visually stunning game with huge open-world scenic environments to explore. The ability to choose and customize your character brings excitement and strategy to the game. How you customize your character will decide the path the story takes. The game has a lot to do and will keep you entertained and coming back for more. We enjoyed playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and highly recommend it to all players. This game can easily become one of the best RPG games we have ever played! Enjoy!
