The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition reviews ( 7 )

This website is full of unwarranted negativity. The PC version of this game was free to everyone who already owned the content included in the Special Edition. So to everyone that's complaining about how the game compares to a heavily modded version of the game, go back to playing that version and stop crying. This remaster is obviously meant to improve the console experience and it succeeds. This is a massive improvement over the XBOX 360 and PS3 versions of the game.

I think this remaster is pretty good personally. Anyone who has actually played the original without mods would see where the graphics have been improved, and as for bad performance, I don't know why others are reporting bad performance, but I don't have any issues at all, and it's not like I have a massively high end PC either...I have a AMD RX480 8GB with 16 gigs of 1600 MHz ddr3 ram and a I7 4770 not overclocked. I know that's not low end but still...There are more powerful CPU's out there and certainly more powerful graphics cards on the market so...yeah. Anyway back to the game! I haven't noticed any game play alterations so far, it seems to me to be a game that has been ported to Fallout 4's game engine with touched up graphics. Primarily the shadows spring to mind; the shadows on the original Skyrim where frankly shockingly bad with the hour cycle. It left a lot to be desired that's for sure. I have also heard from a good friend of mine who put's a lot of mods into his games where and when he can that the new Skyrim is more stable with mods for him at least. Lastly, I just want to say if your expecting this to be Elder Scrolls 6, then may I suggest you look up the definition of "Remaster" in a dictionary. Thanks for reading and happy gaming everyone!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was an open world RPG released by Bethesda Softworks in November 2011. It is the fifth game in the venerable Elder Scrolls Series. The game became an instant classic and has gone on to sell well on both consoles, PC and even has a version on the Nintendo Switch coming out soon. Since its release there have been three DLCs and, with the help of the modding community, is just as popular today as it was when it was first released. The world of Skyrim is one of its main selling points, it being one of the most interesting and diverse open worlds I’ve ever seen. Even if the size of the map has been eclipsed by more recent games, very few have ever come close to the depth and diversity found there. The landscapes and biomes vary from the towering peaks of the Reach to the dense forests of Falkreath the iconic snowy hills of Winterhold. The gameplay is as you’d expect from an Elder Scrolls game, with all the classical swords and spells. Although it does not break any new ground it is at least functional and fun to play, the new addition of shouts putting an interesting spin on how you play but does not change anything drastically. A new feature I think Skyrim improves on from the previous editions though, is the levelling up systems. While previous Elder Scrolls games would have you manually choose whichever class you wanted to play, in Skyrim you level up simply by using the skill you want to level up. This is a simple change but it does wonders for the gameplay, as it allows you to organically develop your own playstyle so that everybody who plays will have a slightly different experience and it is a lot less linear than simply choosing a class from a menu. Then we get to the graphics of Skyrim. Although graphics are not as important to a game as gameplay or story is, I feel it is still worth mentioning, especially considering the controversial nature of Skyrim’s look. When viewing from afar, Skyrim might be one of the most beautiful games I have ever seen, the mountains and open planes are part of Skyrim’s iconic look and when you first see them they will take your breath away. It’s only upon closer inspection that you start to see the cracks in the system. Although the quality of Skyrim’s textures leaves much to be desired, the graphics of a game are more than simply the number of pixels and there are other flaws in Skyrim’s look. A large problem is how repetitive all the rock and dirt textures look, which is a huge problem in a game as large as Skyrim that you are sure to be spending a lot of time in and after a while all the tombs and ruins will start looking the same. Another problem is how desaturated the objects in the game are. Things such as the shining elven armour looks like dirty bronze and bright red imperial armour looks more like a brown. This problem is sadly due to the era in which Skyrim came out, where games preferred a more ‘realistic look’ when by realistic they simply meant dark browns and greys, a look that has not aged well. It’s at times like this when the modding community come to the rescue. Although it is somewhat of a joke at this point, you are missing out on some of Skyrim’s best content is you don’t get the PC version. There are so many mods that as well as upping the pixel quality, also inject some much-needed colour into the world of Skyrim and make it into the fully-fledged piece of art it was meant to be. After that rant, let’s talk about another of Skyrim’s weak points: the story. As you may or may not have been able to tell, I like the lore of the Elder Scrolls. Sadly, this quality of writing does not shine through to the story of the game itself. The main problem with Skyrim’s story is it a game which gives complete freedom, which is a main staple of the Elder Scrolls story. However, this means there is no linear focus and it is very hard to have a good story. This does not mean that it is impossible though, and I feel like the dev team of Skyrim could have done a better job. Compare the story of Skyrim to that of a similar game, the Witcher 3: Both games give you a lot of freedom in what you can do and where you can go, however The Witcher does a much better job of creating realistic feeling characters that you actually care about and high stakes that you actually want to solve rather than the blank faced NPCs of Skyrim which are all voiced by the same five people. However, any good game will have flaws, and with a game as large as Skyrim it is impossible to make it completely polished. The flaws are all forgivable to play in the world Bethesda crafted, and if you play on PC, then any holes Bethesda have left are sure to be filled in by the modding community with even more amazing content you can get (for free), and while it is an imperfect game, I believe that Skyrim remains as one of the best games of its era.

This gets a five, because this is a rating for the PC version, not a console version and irrespective of those fanbois who get their knickers in a twist because they don't like people rating the game as it is. Frankly, there is little point in upgrading, as you can get better graphics from self installed mods. Is the game going to be more stable when modded? Well, not if my experience with the incredibly buggy, 64 bit crashfest called Fallout 4 is anything to go by and after years of being lied to by gaming companies, I'm not going to take anybody else's word for it. But the main reason that this game gets a five is that they Devs have removed achievements if you wish to mod your game even slightly. Yes, you can mod achievements back in, but given that modding has been an integral part of the whole Elder Scrolls experience since I started playing the series with Morrowind back in 2002, it is highly insulting to the gaming public to remove achievements just because you've installed even a single mod. Like many modders, I mod my game to make it far more difficult, or complex than the vanilla version and achievements make a good way of tracking progress that you've made towards different goals and provide a good point of focus for gameplay in a sandbox game. Needless to say, mods like the unofficial patches are essential in order to fix the numerous bugs that Bethesda always ships along with their games and are then too lazy to bother fixing. Frankly, it demonstrates a complete lack of respect when developers think that its cool to give the middle finger to their highly motivated and amazing modding community in this way and it certainly doesn't make me want to play their "special edition" any longer than it took to realise that it does far less than my existing graphics mods already do. Of course, another reason this gets a five is that Bethesda seem to have made no attempt whatsoever to fix the literally thousands of bugs and glitches that are still present and unpatched in the original Skyrim. Who gives a toss about graphics if they've been too lazy to fix basic errors that modders have known about and rectified years ago?

There is zero reason to purchase this if you did not get it for free. The game runs fairly poorly even on high end PCs. People with 1060s can be seen on forums reporting poor framerats and other problems, and my own computer experiences the same despite blowing the recommended specs out of the water and being able to run more graphically demanding games perfectly. The "better stability" that should come with 64 bit does not exist. There is no reason the game should run poorly, either, when the graphical differences between the new game and the original are hardly there. Turn off the god rays and you won't be able to tell a difference. The only thing they changed was lighting and adding god rays everywhere, for the most part. I have everything set to max and the game still doesn't look as good as pre-release gameplay. Finally, since there is a current lack of a script extender you won't be able to use a lot of the best mods from the original, so the experience won't be as good as it is when modding the original either. But even when the script extender comes out, the game will never be worth paying for because it's an overall terrible remaster that adds nothing new and hardly has a new coat of paint with the graphics. It's fine if you got it for free, but never buy it.

Creation Club will ruin everything in next Beth's games. Microtransactions in AAA singleplayer games should be gone and paid mods as well. Nothing else to say.

I'm being overly dramatic on the score, the game is fine, but rereleasing a 6-year-old single player game to add microtransactions is frankly unacceptable and that's why it deserves a zero.
