The One word for this game is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious !!! Elder Scrolls Five : Skyrim a game released by Bethesda Studios .  The theme of this game is R.I.P My Social Life and to be frank their theme of the game was true . This is the fifth   installment of  the The Elder Scroll series following the The Elder Scroll Four : Oblivion . The other word for skyrim is Epic !     I can say that this game will keep you glued to your pc or ps3 or xbox for months. This is one huge game !!!! the map is 16 real miles long !!

Character development

Character development is a primary element of Skyrim. At the beginning of the game, the player selects one of several human, elven, or human races, each of which has different natural abilities, and customizes their character’s appearance. A perpetual objective for the player is to improve their character’s skills, which are numerical representations of their ability in certain areas. There are eighteen skills divided evenly between the three schools of combat, magic and stealth. Training skills until the necessary required experience is met results in the player’s character leveling up. Previous Elder Scrolls games made use of a class system to determine which skills would contribute to the character’s leveling, but its removal in skyrim allows for a preferred play-style to be developed naturally. When their character levels, the player may choose to select a skill-specific ability called a perk, or store perks for later use. Upon levelling fifty times, the player character can continue to level and earn perks, but the rate of levelling is slowed significantly.

Combat system:

The combat system of this game is awesome much better than the previous elder scrolls games the detailing done in this game is awesome  you can hold two weapons in your hand or hold a shield in one hand and a weapon in the other and you can control both hands . The spells in the game also work on this system single handed spells double handed spells for more damage and you can use one spell in one hand and another spell in the other you are free to do what ever you want even a spell in one hand and a weapon in the other

Dragons: The most fun part of the game is to kill dragons . I know it doesn’t sound much fun but you will realize that only after killing your first dragon .You can absorb its soul and use it to learn shouts in the dragon language know as Thuúm ( since you are Dragonborn) .You may find  dragons randomly or sometimes on the peaks of some mountains.

The Review : Overall skyrim is one of the best RPG’s ever made . There are almost 300 quests in skyrim giving you  a game-play of a massive 150hrs + . The game story is so awesome that you don’t get bored playing the story again in all the modes when the game starts its default mode is Adept mode and I recommend that you play the game in adept mode and don’t go to easy only then you feel its a challenge you have passed. The map is almost real 16 miles long so it takes alot of time to explore and there are about 150 dungeons where you can learn the dragon shouts (beware of the draugr there)

I give skyrim a 9.9 /10 !!! Because Its almost perfect !! 🙂
