The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim
Family Friendly Gaming
22 July 2013
Excerpt: A reader request came in for The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. Our editor in chief purchased the game and I drew the shortest straw. Thus I am reviewing it. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim is a role playing game told in the first person perspective. It is medieval times where magic and dragons are dangers. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim has an ethical system to it. Criminals can be attacked on sight. Players can behave, or go around murdering as they see fit.
Conclusion: Dragonborn is the third DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim , following in the footsteps of Dawnguard and Hearthfire , both of which were released last year. Dragonborn takes place in Morrowind on the island of Solstheim, which is the same setting as the Bloodmoon expansion pack for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind -- and which conveniently looks a lot like Skyrim.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard DLC Review
25 February 2013
Excerpt: More than a year after the release of Skyrim, the game is still going strong, and it’s one of my favorite games. One of the ways Bethesda is keeping Skyrim fresh is through a batch of DLC, which has recently taken the form of Hearthfire and Dawnguard. I’ve prepared short reviews of both in anticipation that people will be interested in hearing about each of them. This is my Dawnguard DLC review; the Hearthfire review is located here .
Excerpt: More than a year after the release of Skyrim, the game is still going strong. It’s one of my favorite games at any rate. So, of course I gladly accept an excuse to stay up until the wee hours of the morning being the Dovahkiin. Initially, I played Skyrim on the PS3, including all the bugs that came with it, and waited patiently for the DLC to be released for my console.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn DLC Review
18 December 2012
Summary: " Dragonborn " is an ever so slightly mixed bag. Actually, that’s a lie. It’s excellent. The content here is fantastic, and compared to other pieces of DLC other publishers flog you for more I shouldn’t really be complaining about the value proposition. You get easily 10 hours of content, a great new storyline, some new abilities and shouts, the chance to re-spec your character, and some great new arms and armour, including a whole new crafting tree.
Conclusion: Concept: Skyrim’s third expansion pack takes players to the coast of Morrowind, where the first Dragonborn resides
Graphics: The creative environment designs for Apocrypha are a breath of fresh air. Dragon riding animations skip and look unfinished. The Dragon Aspect armor effects look fantastic
Sound: Hermaeus Mora’s voice is brilliant, and the action is accompanied by a typical Skyrim score
Playability: New shouts add depth to the combat mechanic, and Dragon Aspect...
Excerpt: The fact that many Dovahkiin are still enchanting weapons and looting dungeons long after they’ve already slain Alduin, is a testament to how much initial content Bethesda included in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim when it was released in November of 2011. Over the past year, Xbox 360 owners have also been given the chance to battle (or become) a Vampire Lord via the Dawngaurd DLC, or focus on the domestic side of Nordic life via the Hearthfire DLC.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn (X360) - Review
9 December 2012
Excerpt: Dawnguard , whilst being an excellent piece of downloadable content that brought a lot of extra content to the world of Skyrim, was no Shivering Isles or Bloodmoon . Dragonborn is more comparable to those previous grand expansions, and even emulates Bloodmoon by bringing the Dragonborn hero to the Morrowind island of Solstheim! The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn brings a tonne of content to Skyrim , and greatly improves the Skyrim experience in virtually every way.
