Elder scrolls 5: Skyrim

Game was bought for my sons. They are very impressed with the game and have played it for many hours. They say it is one of the best games they have ever played.

Brilliant....except for the bugs

Skyrim is a great game, no doubt about it, from the new graphics engine to the size and sheer scale of the world that you get to explore. There's a fair amount of variation in the dungeons although not so many variations in enemies. The combat system has been revamped since oblivion and it works well and there are really stunning views to see while exploring Skyrim. Now for the bad news, the ps3 has a serious bug that does not affect the other platforms, in that after levelling up and playing for a few hours, the game stutters so badly that it becomes a powerpoint show. Patches have been released but this has to still be addressed. Apart from a few other glitches and bugs, such as corpses crashing your wedding, there are no major game breaking issues, at least that I experienced, would have done better withough the stuttering issues...perhaps wait until it's fixed before playing, as you need to restart the game every 2-3 hours to resolve the issue, and the load times between areas could have been better.
