Joystiq: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review: Paths of desire

Set 200 years after the Oblivion Crisis, Tamriel is a far different place than players left it at the end of Elder Scrolls IV. The Blades are all but dissolved, mages have become insular, relegating themselves to an isolated college and the Thieves' Guild scarcely deserves the name. No, the focus has shifted from the fantastic to the political, with the assassination of the king of Skyrim triggering a civil war between those loyal to the empire and a band of rebels.

The story is too old to be commented.
