Feed Your Console Review – Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

FYC says

Just a quick note to say that I have not yet finished the game and have only managed to get in about 30hrs of gameplay. I know I’ll get alot of haters on this but seriously, the game really is that freaking big.

Oblivion burst onto consoles in the Spring of 2006. I remember being so amazed by the images I saw online and the intense hunger for a good long RPG, that I rushed out to pick up Oblivion the day it hit shelves. I was both impressed and unhappy at the same time. The Environments looked incredible but the characters all looked spectacularly brutal. I swear each character was only 2 generations removed from Apes walking upright. The gameplay itself was an RPG using a First Person Shooter Perspective which I found to be a little cumbersome, I was always getting lost and every single town I entered wanted me dead or to toss me in jail due to my own ignorance. The sheer size of the game also soured me on the whole experience because it was new and I had never before seen anything so big in a game….but after playing through Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I’m a new man and an old pro at exploring vast worlds…

Decent review. No Co-op isn't a big problem. Though if Bethesda could implement it without taking from the quality of the Single Player at all, then sure.

Crazay4606d ago

Agreed - a game this size would be incredibly fun with one other person. I don't consider it to be a huge issue, just one that I'd like to see fixed in the future.

Did this guy just take a point off of Todd Howard's game because there is no co-op?!?! THIS IS MADNESS! YOUR SOLE SHALL BURN IN HELL!!!

his shoes are going to burn in hell?

RedDead4606d ago

XD..it's kinda hilarious though. I would like Co op but I really don't expect it from ES, it would take away from the immersion too. I can't believe it got marked down for not having it though. I suppose though...most other RPG's are bringing it in too...like em...em............

Laxman4606d ago

Im not sure Co-op would work too well with how story driven this game is. If it was linear, or more focused on combat, then yeah it could work really well, but being so open and so driven by individual choice, I dont think it would go down very well.

da_2pacalypse4606d ago

bahaha, I just realized my spelling mistake lololol... sorry, I can't think, All the boner blood due to skyrim is taking away from my brain blood lolol

da_2pacalypse comment made me want to wish for a game called "Demon's soles".
You will be playing Al Bundy in that game.

As for the review itself: probably the lousiest piece of writing I've seen in a while. It basically tells you nothing about the game that you didn't already know, and the fact that the writer accomplished about a fraction of the game makes the review quite pointless in the first place. Why the rush to review a game if you can't even bother to finish it first?

Well, you shouldn't be in a hurry to rush out the review with any game. Finish the game and then review the game.
