-Repetitive voice-acting

The Bottom Line: Buy the game, it will give you your money's worth and more.


            There are too many RPG's out there to count, and how many of them are even worth your time and money?Bethesda's newest release, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, will easily prove itself worthy. Sure, it has its moments with a few bugs and glitches from time to time, and some of its quest endings are mediocre at best, but what game does not have these things? With stunning visuals, endless content, boat-loads of re-playability, and a unique and fun leveling system, Skyrim will not disappoint.
            Skyrim's graphics are top-notch, usingBethesda's newest graphics engine. The foliage looks almost like real plants. The water is actually running, and is crystal clear. The people almost look life-like, which makes it easy to feel like you're actually meeting people. When they don't have one of the many repetitive voice-acting's, at least. Walking down a path in the woods, you can hear sticks crack and leaves rustle. Oh, and the sky at night is really gorgeous to look at. Wait until you see it, you'll be amazed.
            Speaking of amazing, the amount of content in this game is nothing but. The content is literally endless. There are an infinite amount of randomly generated quests and events, so it's impossible to "100%" the game. That being said, you can still do all the Daedric quests, the four guild quest lines, the main story, and explore everything. Not to mention getting to the level cap of 81. There is always something to do, even if you're just running around  stealing things or helping the Dark Brotherhood murder people.
            The Dark Brotherhood, one of four guilds, is even fun the second time around. So is just about everything in the game. Skyrim has tons of re-playability. I played this game with four different characters, and I can say I had more fun my second time around than on my first time. I don't know if it was because I knew what I was doing, or if I just liked having a battleaxe more than a bow, but it was still lots of fun.
            I chose a battleaxe on my main character, what will you choose? That's the beauty of this game, you can play it however you want. From a caster, to a ranger, assassin, or even a full on berserker, you can play the way you want. The way you level in this game is unique to it as far as I know. You level based on what you use. If you cast destruction magic, your destruction skill increases and you do more damage and have less mana cost associated with those spells. Same goes for bows with damage and armor with defense. You don't have to pick a class, you just play.
            If you're looking for a game you can just pick up and play for hours, Skyrim is the game for you. Despite having some bugs and glitches, it's still a great game. The bugs occur more in the PS3 version than in the Xbox or PC versions, but it's still playable. There are also some other things that are aggravating, like the repetitive voice-acting and the occasional graphical error, but this game gets a 5-stars from me.
