Edge: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

Edge: "Skyrim still takes place in a world where a woolly mammoth can suddenly levitate a hundred feet into the sky and stay there. It still takes place in a world where trying to aid the city watch in a battle against a rampaging dragon can see you arrested and taken to prison – before the battle's over, mind – for striking one of the soldiers with a glancing blow.

It's still a world where a nobleman will try, repeatedly, to enter a tavern, having forgotten to climb off his horse first. It's a world of clunking animation, of reused voice actors, of bandits talking over their own death throes. It's a world that's entirely engaging one moment and an utter farce the next. But it's a world that, providing you offer up your suspension of disbelief, delivers more than most games even attempt." (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360) 9/10

Edge couldn't give this a 6.

9 from edge is a solid 15 from IGN.

LOL.

Nah, Skyrim is too great to hate on for hits. Plus its has nothing to "pit it" against to generate emotion. Darksouls player wont be flooding these threads about how lame Skyrim is. COD has BF3, U3 has Geow3, RPGers have alot of time to devote to some great games...no time for hatin.

Read the review. It mentions the myriad of flaws Skyrim has, in a highly negative manner- I'd barely call it "favorable", score aside.
