Destructoid: Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Preparing for a new Elder Scrolls game is like preparing to die. One must ensure they get all their worldly affairs in order, speak with the people who mean everything to them, and have a final meal. After all, once that disc goes in, the user may as well have departed from our mortal world. (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360) 10/10

Even Destructoid? Is this the greatest game ever made?

i have to say, I am a huuuuge fan of oblivion (played over 100 hours), but i started skyrim and i am quite underwhelmed. Graphics are okay (ps3) but the combat is just awful (it was bad when oblivion came out and nothing has changed) and the animations are jerky. Not sure this deserves a 10/10. :S

Edit: Dont get me wrong, I want to love this game. I've been waiting for it for ages.

phearr3d - My biggest gripe is the combat - which is universal across all platforms. The graphics are passable.

Playing on PS3 is your mistake. PS3 + Bethesda doesn't mix.

whys that? Oblivion ps3 was the best port for console.

@Daver

Bethesda also had a whole year after the game released to focus on JUST the PS3, it damn well should be the best. Have you played Fallout 3 on PS3? It's a damn disaster. I remember my PS3 freezing for 1-2min when I'd enter VATS.

"whys that? Oblivion ps3 was the best port for console."

For the last damn time, Bethesda DID NOT port the Oblivion for the PS3. They hired a third party scottish company called 4J Studios to do the port.

Wtf are you talking about PhearR3dx. Oblivion ran better on ps3 than the 360! Up to your usual BS again I see.

Anyways does anyone know if the pc version will support gamepad? Finding info on that is like looking for the Bigfoot!

Really? One year later the game ran better?? Wow.

Why don't you explain why that is nycredude.

Oh I wish it is more Morrowind than Oblivion...

That's what I was hoping for. I played Morrowind to death. I couldn't get into Oblivion at all.

After reading through a few reviews, i'm convinced Skyrim will win GOTY. I can't wait for the 11th!

Kinda surprised at the score. I thought Dark Souls was a bit too long and I hear this game is like 200hours. Meh. Wasn't planning on buying it anyway. Oblivision didn't really impress me much(though I loved that arena thing)
