However, it's true that when creating a single-player RPG this huge, its easier to forgive the cracks around the edges. Skyrim gets so much right that I can overlook its faults. If you've ever wanted to get truly lost in a game and want the freedom to play any type of character you can imagine, you owe it to yourself to pick up this game.

Prenez ce que vous avez aimé dans Morrowind, retirez ce que vous avez détesté dans Oblivion, multipliez par dix, secouez et voilà : Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. Avec son background complexe, sa prophétie entrainante, les nouveaux mécanismes de gameplay concoctés par Bethesda, Skyrim vous happe complètement dans son univers et vous fait oublier les défauts habituels de la série (sauf les animations, trop dur de passer outre...). Si vous aimez bien la série sans plus, foncez dessus. Si vous êtes fan de la série, foncez acheter des sous-vêtements de rechange.

I really can not stress enough, this is a watershed moment for gaming. A game that is both deep, fulfilling, accessible and fun that could last you a year all for £40/$60 is just a no-brainer of a purchase. If those technical niggles are resolved then feel free to add that extra .5 to the score!

It's difficult to ever feel completely satisfied with a play session of Skyrim. There's always one more pressing quest, one more unexplored tract of land, one more skill to increase, one more butterfly to catch. It's a mesmerizing game that draws you into an finely crafted fictional space packed with content that consistently surprises. The changes made since Oblivion are many, and result in a more focused and sensible style of play, where the effects of every decision are easily seen. Featuring the same kind of thrilling freedom of choice The Elder Scrolls series is known for along with beautiful visuals and a stirring soundtrack, playing Skyrim is a rare kind of intensely personal, deeply rewarding experience, and one of the best role-playing games yet produced.

In the end, Skyrim will be hailed as both the best and worst title of the year depending on whom you ask. RPG gamers who look for subtle storytelling and endless replay value are going to love every minute. But gamers that have even a slight problem with impatience will quickly become frustrated. However, even the most devoted naysayer has to admit that Skyrim is at the top of its genre, and that's no small feat.

Les combats sont dynamiques, nerveux et tactiques. Leur gestion demande un peu plus d’élaboration et il est fréquemment permis de s’en sortir de différentes manières. L’écriture des quêtes est parfaitement réussie avec là aussi souvent plusieurs choix qui nous sont laissés pour les mener à leur terme. Le tout est épaulé par une imposante galerie de personnages bien différents les uns des autres qui bénéficient d’une qualité d’interprétation de premier ordre. Ces cinq années d’attente valaient le coup, The Elder Scrolls 5 : Skyrim est une franche et belle réussite qui vous retiendra un nombre incalculable d’heures. Un titre tout simplement indispensable pour tous les amateurs de la série The Elder Scrolls.

Skyrim is a beautiful game. Skyrim is a well-developed piece of software. Skyrim is a forward-only time machine (in that it will suck hours and hours of your life away) and an excuse to buy a next-gen console if your PC can’t run it. Skyrim is so addictive and so distracting that it’s difficult to say anything bad about it. It would be a disservice to anyone who considers themselves a true gamer to miss this one.

Aussi rude que les nuits glacées de Bordeciel, aussi froid et brutal que l'acier des Nordiques, Skyrim sait, à l'occasion, se montrer chaleureux et convivial comme une coupe d'hydromel au coin du feu. Rares sont les jeux de rôle capables de fédérer à travers une même expérience les vieux routards et les néophytes, mais ce cinquième volet de la saga des Elder Scrolls le fait avec brio. Les plus conservateurs d'entre vous ne pesteront pas bien longtemps contre les modifications et les coupes opérées, tant la refonte du système de jeu s'avère probante et l'expérience plus immersive que jamais. Dotée d'une richesse et d'une densité phénoménales, mais aussi d'une topographie sans concession, la vaste Province de Bordeciel est une invitation permanente à la découverte, à la contemplation et aux actes de bravoure les plus héroïques.

If you've played previous Elder Scrolls games, glitches and oddities don't come as a surprise. Nevertheless, Skyrim comes in a year graced with multiple quality RPGs that feature tighter combat, fewer bugs, better animations, and so forth. But to be fair, none of those games are endowed with such enormity. Yet The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim doesn't rely on sheer scope to earn its stripes. It isn't just that there's a lot to do: it's that most of it is so good. Whether you're slashing a dragon's wings, raising the dead back to life, or experimenting at the alchemy table, Skyrim performs the most spectacular of enchantments: the one that causes huge chunks of time to vanish before you know it.

The best Elder Scrolls yet, although not the revolutionary open-world RPG some might have expected.

Même si de petits bugs subsistent, on ne peut que s'incliner devant le travail accompli sur la direction artistique, l'ambiance sonore et l'écriture, preuve du soin apporté par Bethesda dont le maître-mot devait indéniablement être " immersion ". Dès les premiers instants, on se plonge volontiers dans Bordeciel, pour un voyage âpre et profond dont on sait d'avance que l'on n'est pas prêt d'en voir le bout. Cinq ans après Oblivion, le studio américain rend une très bonne copie qui contentera aussi bien les férus de jeux de rôle que les non-initiés, grâce à un système de jeu véritablement complet et intuitif. La marque d'un savoir-faire. Toutefois, quelques ratés subsistent comme cet inventaire sur lequel on aura le sentiment de perdre beaucoup de temps, ou encore des temps de chargement beaucoup trop présents. Heureusement pas de quoi vous faire décrocher si facilement. Une chose est sûre : après Skyrim, le challenge sera de passer à un autre jeu.

Once you’ve found the parameters that Skyrim works with, it’s not difficult to play by its rules, and even enjoy it. There is a huge, jaw dropping world to discover at whatever pace you desire. Along the way you’re free to author your own story, defining your unique character and experience through whatever style of play you prefer. When you’re lost in its rich landscape and enthralled within its fiction, Skyrim thrives, and is truly unparalleled; it’s when you take a closer look, you can’t help but discover the seams holding this tapestry together.

Touch wood I’m still without any of those issues, but talk of lag returning post-patch doesn’t bode well. I clocked up 350 hours in Oblivion. Am I going to be able to do that here? Or will my ballooning save file eventually cripple my game? “Review your experience,” they said. So far I’m having an incredible time. I don’t want it to end but it could at any time. The patch seems to only be a temporary fix, and what about the people who aren’t online? I love this game, I really do, but I can’t give it the score I want in its current state. That would be unfair to anyone forking out £40 for a something that might work. It might not. The most amazing game of the year is in there somewhere. I really hope Bethesda can get it out.
