The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review round up

Skyrimdragon

In this crazy period of AAA release after AAA release, and games making lustful eyes at our wallets, there’s just one game – amongst dozens of admittedly fantastic titles – that stands out above the rest for me, and that’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It’s out tomorrow, after what seems an eternity’s wait. We’re still waiting on a review copy, so we’ll be standing in lines tomorrow to get our Dragon-hunting-simulator, like the rest of you.

As expected, it’s cleaning up as far as review scores go. Here’s a round up of the currently available reviews. Just be warned – it makes the wait until tomorrow even more painful to bear.

CVG – 9.5
Destructoid – 10
Edge – 9
TheSixthAxis – 9
Eurogamer – 10
Giantbomb  – 5/5
Joystiq – 5/5
1UP – A-
NowGamer – 9.4
Feed Your Console – 9
Wired – 10
Escapist – 5/5
Gamespot – 9

That’s…well, that’s a lot of really, really high scores. The consensus seems to be the same: Skyrim will consume you.

It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces. I am also the emperor of the backend
