This review is going to be a little unique. We have two new versions of Skyrim, and being the Elder Scrolls fan that I am, I couldn’t stop myself from nabbing both. (Yeah, call me crazy!) Both ports were compelling to me for different reasons, and they are both great in their own ways. Still, they are the same game, so I decided to combine both reviews into one. I will write briefly about the game as a whole, and then I will dive into each version.
Skyrim should be a game that requires no introduction. Even if you’ve never played it, it’s impossible to miss the lasting impression this game left in the collective psyche of gamers everywhere. It was an enchanting experience, carried by the strength of its dense game world and interesting lore. Today, its DNA lives on in many modern games, but there’s still nothing quite like exploring the cold, desolate and wondrous landscape of Skyrim.
