Skyrim is here…

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!

Skyrim arrived on our shores last Friday (a really crap time as that was just before a busy time for me meaning no game time) and is already selling by the bucketload.

So, what does someone who got dragged into this current generation of consoles by Oblivion think?

2 feeble hours in and already feeling the world drawing me close into a loving embrace.  Effectively, it plays in a v similar manner to Oblivion with a few elements that worked in the recent Fallout games making an appearance.  V stylish presentation, graphics on XBOX (thanks to a day one patch) are settling down to ‘wow’ level.

Music just as soaring as ever and also impressed by the background SFX, not sure if I’m reading too much into this but my footfalls and armour sounds whilst walking / running seem to match what I’m wearing.

Already started my OCD-like searching of every barrel and burial urn.  Found not 1,2,3 but FOUR cabbages in one barrel.  Snag a rodent whilst practising with my newfound bow and…bang…I’ll have a casserole!

You owe it to yourself to have a vacation in Tamriel, even if you don’t usual play these types of games.  Can’t wait to get back…
