Summary: Unfortunately for me I have damaged my game to the point where I can not even play anymore. If you aren't careful with how you install the mods you will screw your game up. There is a guy on YouTube called gopher, and he shows step by step how to install mods. I highly recommend you watch his videos because they help A LOT. That being said if you have to mod a game to 'make it better', or whatever your reasons then it probably is not worth your time or effort.
Summary: Great game, but the system requirements are pretty high. The ones listed don't really cut it. It's slow, and difficult to play. So just make sure your computer is more than capable of running it before purchasing.
Summary: I was looking for a good RPG but I have been leery of a lot of the games coming out that are getting such good reviews and finding out that they are at best average. So while I have been seeing Skyrim get really good press for some time, I decided to wait until the price dropped to around $20 before buying the game. First of all I have to say that I have not played this game very much yet so this is basically just an initial impression.
Summary: Game idea is great but game was released unfinished (likely due to corporate pressure) and untested. Numerous bugs that would've been IMMEDIATELY noticed had anyone at Bethesda tested it on a pc with a mouse at all. Game is unfinished in numerous bugs/game issues for both PC and Playstation versions. Numerous quest lines are buggy as well as being cut short.
Summary: The game is fallout with a sword. The skills have been reduced to such a degree that it really does not mater what you are in the end you will be the same as most everyone else. MAges for the first time cannot make their own spells or even combine spells. You get a hand full of junk spells and that's it. Honestly I wan my money back. Unfortunately for me I bought the PC version. Everything has been dumbed down for consoles.
Summary: I am vacillating between several feelings right now. Rage at spending money on a game that was clearly not ready for release on a PC platform. Despair at my inability to learn that game manufacturers WILL market a product that does not perform as advertised. Laughter at my poor warrior that can only use one hand (unable to equip anything in the right hand. She is also a greedy, hoarder of a warrior as she is completely unable to drop anything once she has picked it up.
Summary: After agonizing months of waiting for this fly-off-the-shelf game I finally acquired my hard copy and ran home. I hastily opened the box. I expected to find a hidden treasure inside. What I found was a steam cd-key. I use steam regularly so unabated I popped in the DVD and ran the installer. To my surprise rather than opening up a windows install window it opened up steam. After waiting the minute for steam to open it finally started installing. It's DRM..
Summary: Yes i agree, it includes the dlc, which is great, some people will disagree,
but $70 for a game thats almost 2 years old… it still cost too much… it'd
be much better if it was around $50, then maybe id reconsider re-buying it.
Excerpt: "Although my PC barely handles the game on HD + mega low, I've seen enough to point out few important bits. If you're looking for a review on gameplay, this one isn't for you; I will focus around the 'compatibility' side of the game. First of all, === Game Requirements === I have managed to successfully install the game on a 6 year old system, and run in on predictable detail (low low low, off off off, just HD res). First of all, I have experienced ...
Pros: Great sequel, story gripping straight from intro
