That Bloke In The Beanie from Plus XP writes: "Skyrim is a tough game to review, mostly due to the sheer amount of much deserved praise heaped on it by critics and fans alike. What else can I say to gamers out there to recommend or pick apart from a game this seemingly perfect? Then I thought sod it, I’ll review it anyway, because when Bethesda is bad its very bad (See brink) but when they are good, they’re really damn good! Skyrim is the fifth game in the Elder Scrolls series, not counting all the DLC and expansion packs. What elevates it far, far above other games in the genre and especially Oblivion is the culmination of experience and work that Bethesda has done over the past twenty odd years drawing especially from their Fallout games."
