The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Review

By Rishi Alwani (Oct 26, 2016)
  • Good
  • Massive world with a lot of things to do
  • Looks great outdoors
  • Bad
  • Visually inconsistent
  • Loading screens galore
  • Bugs carried over from initial release

When it released in 2011, Skyrim or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as it's properly known, was the gold standard for open-world role-playing games. It had a wealth of quest lines, more than its share of factions, and so much to do that you could not get bored. Bethesda is yet to announce a new single-player game in The Elder Scrolls series, but it has brought back Skyrim by the way of a remaster. But we live in a post-Witcher 3 world now, where the expectations from role-playing games have undergone a drastic transformation. Does the Skyrim Special Edition hold up?
