Bethesda Game Studios has just released a new chapter in its long running series called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim! This enormous open world/RPG takes place in a visually impressive fictional world, where every new direction or environment entered, has a surprise waiting. No matter if your playing the game for a few hours or a few days, there will still be a quest, item and/or character to uncover, that will lead you to totally new territories and leave you with completely different results.

The many different scenic environments in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, consist of rocky mountains, forests, vast fields and decaying tunnels. The attention to detail breaths life into every environment, while breathtaking visuals compliment each scene, leaving you with the feeling of actually being part of that world. Freedom is a big part of the game, weather it involves the enormity of the world or the way that you choose to live in it. You have option's which consist of, buying a house and living the simple life, live like a criminal and attack everyone you encounter, follow suggested quests or just wander the world aimlessly. The game leaves these decisions all up to you, guaranteeing that no two players will experience the story exactly the same way.

The gameplay has several steps to follow, which lets you decide exactly how you want to advance in the game. At the beginning, all you get to choose is a race (your player character.) From there you get to try out different skills before you chose the one you want to specialize in. Leveling happens through skill use, meaning the more skills that you use, the more those skill levels will increase. Once enough of these skill categories are leveled, your overall character level increases. This enables you to make decisions at your own pace and at the right time.

Perk points are something else achieved when leveling, which enables you to spend them to learn new skills or save them until your sure how you want to use them. The more perks that you use, the better your overall combat will be. The spell system has been improved, enabling you to cast a different spell from each hand. Another upgrade that can not be left out are Dragon Shouts. Dragon Shouts gives you the ability to breath fire, slow time, blast force waves, shout ice and call in dragons. By searching environments for word walls, you can learn more shouts adding to your abilities. Before you can activate any shouts, you need to fight a dragon and take its soul. Dragons are all over Skyrim, making it fairly 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 impressive game with huge scenic open world 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 that the story will take. The game has plenty to do and will keep you entertained and coming back for more. We enjoyed playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and recommend it highly to all gamers. This game can easily be one of the best RPG's that we have ever played! Enjoy!
