4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed info on the Collector's Edition November 11, 2011
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are already many reviews that cover the game and what's good and bad. The "fun" rating in this review, separate from the product rating, is related to the performance of the game on the PC platform including the results seen after the recent forced code patching. However, Amazon isn't accepting the change to the "fun" rating as I submit it. My current opinion is not 5 stars.

This product review is about the physical observations of the Collector's Edition product. I've broken this up into comments on the PACKAGE, the GAMEDISC, and the CONTENT VALUE associated with this product.

THE PACKAGE

Amazon already publishes the dimensions of this package, but for those who have difficulty visualizing geometry, the size can be described as follows using a CD for reference:

The Skyrim CE box is:
3.25 CDs from left to right
2.75 CDs from front to back
3 CDs tall

I have uploaded a photo to Amazon for reference.

The wraparound slip cover to the cardboard box is so long that it could honestly be unfolded and framed for use as an extra-wide wall poster, were it not for the creases.

The actual box itself is matte black cardboard, with no markings. The slip cover is attached to this box with rectangular seals. When my shipment arrived, two of the seals had already dislodged, as though the adhesive was not strong enough. The entire package is naked in the shipping box. It is not wrapped in cellophane. The slip case in my copy did not have scuffs.

Immediately under the top cover is a matte black cardboard tray holding the shrink-wrapped thick paper game case, with the art book above it, wrapped in plastic. The map is in the game case, made of textured, thick paper, blank on the opposite side of the map.

5.0 out of 5 stars Husband's early Thanksgiving gift January 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this collector's edition for my husband, a huge video game nerd, as an early Thanksgiving gift. We plan on framing the map that came with it and have Alduin and his wall displayed on the top of our bookshelf in the living room. My husband absolutely adores this game and the coffee table book and all the extras. I was proclaimed "best wife ever" for buying him this as a surprise! I enjoy watching him play it - the characters are awesome, the story is really interesting and I absolutely love the dragons. The coffee table book is beautiful and very informative about the game story and characters. I'm so glad I bought this!

5.0 out of 5 stars SKYRIM WILL CONSUME YOU WITH THE FIRE OF ALDUIN November 11, 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
((INTRO))

Do you like CRPG? Are you a CRPG fan? If you are, you've most likely been eagerly waiting for Skyrim, even if you didn't like Oblivion or Bethesda games in general. Does Skyrim deliver?

Let me begin by saying "Move over Oblivion, the new Emperor arises to the throne."

A long, painful wait for the most anticipated CRPG of my life is finally over. The new era of CRPG is upon us and the reign of Skyrim begins.

((NEW ENGINE / PRESENTATION))

New proprietary 'Creation Engine' created by Bethesda doesn't improve graphics by night and day when compared to Oblivion and Fallout 3, however, it is specifically tailor-made for Skyrim and all the future TES and Fallout world, and improves just about everything related to gameplay, combat, animation, magic and lighting effects, shadow effects, textures, character models, facial models, graphical fidelity and the world in general.

Gone are the instability and limitations from Gamebryo Engine that shows the cracks at the seam of the massive gameworld from Oblivion and no more god-awful SpeedTree that made vanilla Oblivion quite sterile and often mundane to explore. People and monsters do not look like they got the ugly stick treatment. Facial and character models are the most impressive upgrades from Oblivion. Animations are no longer stiff and awkward and much more fluid, realistic and natural animations boost the feel and flow of movement and combat. The details of textures are very impressive. You can even see things like hair on the skin, scar, vein on human body.

The game world is all hand-crafted and hand-placed; no more auto-generated bland plants and environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Engrossing Game July 12, 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved this game so much. It wasn't as fun as Fallout 3, but it was one of the best games I've played since Mass Effect 2 or MGS4. But this game offers customization and exploration unrivaled by any game on the market. It does everything and does it very well. Buy and play it if you haven't already. But if you have a girlfriend or want to maintain your social life, set aside some time to play and control yourself; because it is easy to get sucked into it for seven hours at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDER A PERFECT SKY, ONE CAN FIGHT FOREVER (*) November 11, 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The ELDER SCROLLS series has given us a number of masterpieces over the years. Morrowind will always remain etched on my brain whereas Oblivion has offered a vast world I found myself immersed into for hours at no end. Following up on footsteps of such giants is never easy. And yet the 5th installment of the series, SKYRIM, still managed to impress and ensnare me.

INFINITE. INFINITE IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
For SKYRIM, Bethesda will only take up 6GB on your HDD and with that the game designers created a literally endless world, with extremely long drawing distances, high mountains, passing clouds, dark forests, foliage moving to the wind and water trickling in streams. Everything you see in the horizon is actually accessible. Now, compare that to the ...21GB Rage takes up for a much, much more small and visually limited world to realize what was accomplished with SKYRIM. The world is absolutely huge - and it feels real.
The graphics are gorgeous, almost realistic. Sure, I could do with somewhat more detailed textures when it comes to clothing (they look much better in the inventory than when worn) as well as a more bold color palette (besides grasses, there are also colorful wildflowers, Bethesda); however, the imaginative design of the items and equipment, the natural movements of the characters and the way light and shadows play with each other all the time more than make up for these shortcomings. The game is as beautiful as it is deep and endless.

ALL SCHOOLS OF FIGHTING ARE WELCOME
Each hand has its own menu.
