Snow crunches under foot as I sneak up to the Bandit hideout. The wind is searingly cold this high in the mountains and cuts through my dwarven armour. My Imperial Bow at the ready I take aim at the Bandit leader, when a terrible roar is heard from the skies. The bandits start to scream and scatter but they are of no importance now. The inevitable swoop of wings and glistening of scales off of moonlight mark my new, more deadly foe. A dragon. And as a Dovahkiin, Dragonborn, it is my fate to absorb its soul and save Skyrim.
As the latest and most ambitious of the acclaimed Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim is the northernmost province of Tamriel and home to the weathered Nords, vast mountain ranges, woolly mammoths, giants, the usual bandits and most importantly; dragons. 9.5/10
