Requires Steam - total ripoff
13 November 2014
Summary: This is not a disc loaded version of the game. A Steam account is required to get the game. Shame on the game industry and a double shame on Steam. The packaging of the game is very deceptive. It clearly states on the front "PC Game - DVD ROM Software" which leads me to believe I can pop the disc in, install the game and play away. That could be farther from the truth.
Summary: Although I love the game, Skyrim, I hate that Bethesda Softworks has joined with steam. I bought disks to avoid having to download, I didn't realize (and it was not mentioned in my Legendary copy, careful inspection was required to see the steam requirement for this copy) that this is actually a download game. Not everyone has access to gigabit internet accounts. Living in a rural area of the midwest US, I have very limited options for internet.
Summary: I just bought it from Gamestop and no one tried it yet I have bad news don't cache anything it will lock up and if you don't cache it willjust get worse the guy will be stuck jumping in one place and wont be able to move its totally screwed, that sad part Bethesdia already knew itI went on youtube to complain about it and people already said Bethesdia knew that befor they sold it to ya :( this game don't work and I bought it new..
Summary: Not at all! First, this game is OVER 2 YEARS OLD - don't matter about the last expansion in August - and still sales WAY over the value disc price doing average days. Second, the main game has a 75% off sale today - 12/12/13 - but the LE with ONLY add-ons has a less discount of ONLY 66%? Third, with all the very poor graphics visuals - everyone don't use exploited mods - Bethesda still haven't added a graphics package to enhance the game.
Summary: The disk arrived intact from England. So far the ggame will not load into Windows 7; Also, the experts at Bethesda Software, the originator, have not been able to help. Can I get a refund for a game that just plain won't work??
Summary: I loved Skyrim, but I HATE Steam. Those people don't know what customer service is. I loaded it all, registered, etc. Everything was fine for a few hours of play, and then it simply froze up. I had to re-boot the computer, and then "Steam" wouldn't re-start. I tried all my considerable computer tricks to no avail, so I opened a trouble ticket - three different times and was never able to re-open or re-install Steam or use my Skyrim DVD again. I returned it for a refund.
Summary: Before you buy do some research online to make sure you want to take on this challenge. Bungie.net provides some support but even the games developers says you may not be able to get the game running. Bungie did not work on the port. Spend your money on Halo CE which still has a large community for online play and a large library of mods and support.
Pros: You're only out 20 bucks.
Cons: This is probably one of the worst ports to PC ever. If you're lucky it will run on your system. Most people will not be lucky. Will not work on laptops and will not work with integrated video. Updates to Windows Live ID will break the game and may not be fixed. Does not have a large community to help support you with the never ending problems. You may be forced to install the game multiple times and can only use the CD key 6 times after that you're done. You will spen...
