One of the best RPG games in the world...
Despite some parts in the world of Skyrim having or loading what I call blurry graphics, I think Bethesda didn't spend much time on this but rather the story line/missions. This game has tons of missions(I barely started playing so I'm just making this assumption) just like Oblivion and like Oblivion I'm hoping It'll take me a year or so to finish the game because I love it so much I want it to last....I like how it shows you the items and spells you have and how you can even rotate them while in your inventory unlike Oblivion. I think I noticed Skyrim having less details to choose from when creating a character. Oblivion I think has more.... Overall I still need to play this game and I know it will be a great one because Bethesda makes some awesome RPG games..... Also I'm not really into the Kinect Sensor but maybe or someday I might try it out with this game since it's compatible..... FUS RO DAH!Read full review...

Love the storyline, but too glitchy!
I love the storyline. I enjoy a good game like this. But the game is way too glitchy sometimes. It freezes up, you cannot pick up things sometimes. I would like to see some great fixes for the Xbox 360 version.Read full review...

The game itself was pretty good and was definitely worth playing. As for the people I bought it from. Wonderful. It was shipped as soon as I bought it and it actually got to my house a day or two before the expected day. Vondetbar!Read full review...

Good game, good graphics, long loading periods.
As many people have undoubtedly discovered, this is an epic video game with literally endless hours of game play. The name of land in which you are exploring is Skyrim. It is a place with many mysteries and a place where your actions play a good part into how the game progresses. Unlike some games, where your path is well defined, Skyrim is an open plains were only the strongest survive. You have multiple paths that you can go and hundreds of "missions" you can complete.
If there is any down side to this game than it most probably is the vast number of ways the game can be played. For a beginner, just starting out, I would urge them to explore the land and to build from that experience. As the game progresses (and you grow stronger) the number of adventures increases.
There is many ways to play this game. I would recommend it anyone who enjoy the Fantasy genre.
One fact that I would also note is the long loading time between scene. It is irrefutable the biggest draw back to this game.Read full review...

One of the best games ever!
**Update. I didn't realize when writing this review that it was for the collectors edition. To tell the truth I did not even use the other disc. I just wanted to replace the other copy we had that got damaged. Unless you are a die-hard fan and have to have everything associated with the game (I think the other disc is a soundtrack?... but since I never bothered with it, I'm not sure.) I would just buy whatever copy is cheapest.
One of my favorite top 10 games of all times for sure. Its roleplaying, so I already like it because of the themes and storylines and such, but on top of that the landscape is awesome and there are dragons popping up all over the place. It does have some very violent parts not appropriate for very young audiences, but I just cover my 3 year olds eyes. He loves the dragons. There is alot of talking to people and fighting dragons and other monster type beings and even a few robotic type automatons, so there is alot I can do with him to avoid some of the really violent parts. I just wait for him to go to bed to do the rest. There are hours and hours of game time. More than any final fantasy game. So, be ready to put alot of time into this game or play it periodically over a long period of time. This is not something to power through over the weekend.
I'm editing this to add that I don't like that you can't play multiplayer on the xbox live with this. You have to have the pc.
I think it would be better if it were multiplayer on xbox live.
I did leave it 5 stars, though, because the game itself is much better than anything previous.
I can't wait to see what they do with the new consoles that are available now.Read full review...
Awsome Game and Worth the money. 5/5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!
If your into Open World Games and are into RPG Games this one is a must play Game. If you havn't played the Previous games thats okay cause this game doesn't require you to have played them in order to understand what's going on in the story and this game also makes it easy for you to get hooked in the story.
The controlling is easy to understand and figure out and going through the item screens is also fast to learn. it took me about 5 minutes to figure where everything is located in the item screens and can now go through them really fast.
Like the previous games you can select your class in which you want to specialize in and can gain powers from other classes as well during the game. You can deside if you want to go through the main job quests or do what I love enjoying and that is completeing the side quests in order to gain more knowledge of the open world of Skyrim. This game will take your hours to complete but its worth it. Again if your into RPG's and open world games or are into midevil earth games this is a must play game.Read full review...
A good game overall that is fun to play and is a great time waster.
I am a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls games and this one was no different. It made things that were in Oblivion better and introduced some new elements as well. The only problem I have with it is that it gets old if you play it for too long and there are some glitches that can usually be fixed by just reloading a save file. I still love the game though and it is still good for playing when I have nothing that I have to do as it is open map and no encounters are scripted.Read full review...
