Synopsis and Features
The story of Skyrim is set 200 years after the events of Oblivion. The High King of Skyrim has been killed and the empire of Tamriel is in tatters. Everyone who is in power wants to become the next king of Tamriel, but in the midst of all this lies a deep dark secret that threatens to destroy the peace of Skyrim. Everyone is waiting for the prophesized return of the Dragonborn; one who has the power of The Voice, and the only one who can defeat the dragons.
Developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Skyrim adds in an array of different gameplay elements that make it unique. The minimum requirements for the game to run smoothly on your computer are Windows XP or Windows 7, 2 GHz dual-core Intel or AMD quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, 15 GB disk space, any 512 MB RAM equipped graphics card.
The game starts with you exploring the land of Skyrim that is home to the Nord race. You can pick your character from 10 different races on offer. You can travel on foot or use horses to travel places. Quests are assigned by different characters in the game which upon completion earn you points and respect.
The elements in Skyrim are unique as your each interaction and how you solve a quest can give rise to new characters and objectives. You can even join factions, who have their own quests to accomplish, leading to long hours of gameplay.
The quests in the game can be anything from a simple forging event to even slaying of hostile animals that include dragons. Killing a dragon is huge and difficult task, but if done is very rewarding for your skill and experience points. A dragon kill can also earn you a powerful spell. These spells activate a new system in the game called the Shout system that equips you with magical abilities. These could be anything from casting a spell for slowing of time, throwing your voice, changing the weather to calling in allies and more.
18 skills are available on which you can improve your character’s strengths. This includes combat, magic and stealth. You can use different spells in the game like magicka: for destruction, conjuration: for summoning giants and alteration: for lighting up roads and so on. The game allows wielding of dual spells. This is helpful as you can wield 2 spells in one hand and destroy everything that obstructs your quest to discovery. You can even dual-wield one handed weapons.
The game allows you to pick locks, make potions and if you like sneaking around stealthily in the dark, you can even indulge in vampirism. Exploring is a joy in Skyrim as you get to explore a plethora of dungeons and new arenas. The graphics are spectacular and visually appealing in every segment of the game.
Skyrim has a great soundtrack that draws you in each time you play the game. Each track is different as seamlessly syncs with the gameplay elements to provide you with a memorable gaming experience.
