before i start criticizing anything id like to get the problem out there and see if there is a fix.... i installed the game and it had a 'steam' association exe on the disc... with that in mind it went ahead and installed steam for whatever reason considering that the game itself will/should run without the aid of a steam account or association... that said i went with the flow and started playing without a hitch at 'ultra' setting.. ( radeon 7770 gig card and 4 gigs of good ram in the system )..until the 28th hour when it crashed.. right to the desktop. ok... this happens.. i restarted the game and a few more minutes into it another crash...i uninstalled and r/r the game 5 times afterwards. and updated everything including the milk in the fridge...@!@
it continued to crash... then....when it was the darkest time it ran for 90 some hours AFTER i turned down the card to medium... first question why should i have to take a %50 cut in the card just to play the same game i was playing at ultra a few hours ago?... ok... so i played another 90 odd hours with it at 1/2 gas... guess what... steam updates when i go to play again and it started crashing in 20 minutes then 10 then 5 and then it would load the splash screen then nada. there are some discrepancies as to what the game came with and that was nothing.. no folder no instructions and why the steam associated exe?...just the disc and that's it... there's nothing wrong/defective with my system nor my card... im placing the blame on either the disc or windows xp... this was a suggestion my son gave.. he has a steam skyrim which he bought on line.. my other son has a disc he bought from future shop...Read more ›
However, Skyrim has a few flaws in the software. In many places the colours seem to flicker and flash especially when there is high contrast like bright sun. There are a few places where the game quits for no reason and a google search shows that it is a game flaw that happens to many. Also some of the quests get very repetitive. For example to raise gold you can endlessly play the companions quests and are given about 4 possible scenarios in random locations. The repetitive part is the quest givers say the same speech every time even though you have done that same dragon hunt with the same guy 6 times. I also find some of the chit chat when you interact with someone a bit wordy and again repetative.
All in all I recommend this game for someone with patience to learn it, who enjoys a vast role playing game with lots of action. Not just for teens as I am close on a senior and still get hours of enjoyment from it.
INFINITE. INFINITE IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
For SKYRIM, Bethesda will only take up 6GB on your HDD and with that the game designers created a literally endless world, with extremely long drawing distances, high mountains, passing clouds, dark forests, foliage moving to the wind and water trickling in streams. Everything you see in the horizon is actually accessible. Now, compare that to the ...21GB Rage takes up for a much, much more small and visually limited world to realize what was accomplished with SKYRIM. The world is absolutely huge - and it feels real.
The graphics are gorgeous, almost realistic. Sure, I could do with somewhat more detailed textures when it comes to clothing (they look much better in the inventory than when worn) as well as a more bold color palette (besides grasses, there are also colorful wildflowers, Bethesda); however, the imaginative design of the items and equipment, the natural movements of the characters and the way light and shadows play with each other all the time more than make up for these shortcomings. The game is as beautiful as it is deep and endless.Read more ›

Skyrim is not as good as its predecessor, Oblivion. I didn't like the bleak, icy, landscape and there weren't enough quests outside the main quest. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Vicki-Author
