So I'm wandering down a valley feeling pretty good about myself. I've just single-handedly wiped out a horde of monsters in a dungeon and walked off with a shiny pile of loot when I see an ugly giant sauntering along up ahead. Like any brave and noble adventurer I decide to behead him and loot his corpse. Big mistake! This guy is way more than I can handle. I've used most of my potions in the dungeon and this guy hits hard. My health is almost gone and my thoughts start to drift towards my last save when out of nowhere a dragon swoops in and scoops him up! My savior! I make a mad dash out of there and start healing with the shred of magicka I have left, hoping to make good my escape. Not so lucky I'm afraid, the dragon finishes off the giant and drops me like a sack of potatoes. Oh well, next time I'll know better, or will I?

This is the kind of random activity you'll see all over the world of Skyrim. Exciting, unscripted events unfold everywhere you turn. You can run to the same spot from the same save and it will be different every time. The world is vast and it is very much alive.

This is an Elder Scrolls game through and through. All our favorite activities are back, from brewing potions to smithing armor. Some of the familiar aspects have been streamlined however. Gone are attributes (STR, AGL etc.) and to be honest I didn't miss them. Agonizing over character creation is a thing of the past, you pick your race (each has their own bonus) and off you go. You develop your character by playing the way you want, not by conforming to a specific class. Want to be a sneaky thief who happens to wield a two-handed battle axe? Do it! Want to be a heavy armor wearing, club wielding brute who can also chuck fireballs with the finest mages in the land? Yup, that's doable too!

I am 64 years old, and used to love RPG's back in the day. I haven't played any for years although I liked Daggerfall, Phantasy Star, Ultima 7, even Pool of Radiance way when they were new. Anyway, I thought I'd try Skyrim.

Reading the reviews, I was a little intimidated. What's this Steam stuff? I never heard of Steam. What about the long download time everybody is talking about?

I opened a Steam account and installed Steam the night before Skyrim was delivered, by just going to the steam website. [...] . Easy. I didn't have to give Steam much of any info about me, other than an email address. No credit card, no real name, the usual consents, and so on. Verdict: Steam is not all that bad so far.

When I received the software I followed the simple directions, which were: Insert disk, run setup, follow directions. That is really all that I needed to do. Download time for the game on a Friday at 3:30 PM was 11 minutes, and download time for the patch was 1 more minute. Then, Steam wanted to upgrade my Active X and such (on a one year old high end Dell laptop with Windows 7, gee...), and that took another 5-6 minutes or so. So, I was playing within less than 20 minutes after opening the box. Can't get much easier than that.

An 11 minute game installation? What a surprise! Bear in mind that I live in New Orleans, not out in the country, but my Cox Cable connection is nothing special and just the usual cable connection. So, if you live in a metropolitan area and have high speed internet, and if your computer meets the game requirements I'd say you will be fine.

Speaking of which, the package says minimum system requirements are:
Operating system: XP, Vista, Windows 7
Processor: Dual Core 2.

Skyrim is the fifth game in The Elder Scrolls series, following on from Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind and Oblivion. As usual with this series, the game contains only minor continuity references to the previous titles and can be enjoyed on its own. As normal, you get to create a character, choosing their stats, background, gender and race, before being unleashed into the wilds of the Imperial Province of Skyrim. You can follow the main storyline, pursue side-quests or simply strike off into the wilderness to kill some wolves. If you're really into role-playing you can even go off and split some logs or pursue a career as a blacksmith. The game is an immense toybox and it's up to you how you play it.

Those who've played Bethesda RPGs before, particularly the recent era beginning with Oblivion and continuing through the SF Fallout 3 and New Vegas games, will find much here that is familiar. The ageing Gamebryo Engine has been given an overhaul and renamed the Creation Engine, but it's the same old technology propelling the title along (particularly noticeable with the still-clunky movement and jumping). The upgrades are impressive, with much-improved graphics (particularly in the departments of wind and snow effects) and character animation. The stiff, robotic figures of the previous Bethesda games are thankfully gone and people are now less off-putting to interact with. Bethesda have also provided a full voice cast for the game, which is a relief after Oblivion's tiny pool of voice actors resulted in some serious immersion-breaking moments. In Skyrim this is limited to a few of the various city guards, who have the same voice and even the same dialogue (the oft-repeated, "Arrow to the knee," complaint) no matter where they are, which is more amusing than problematic.
