Much like a real anniversary, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition is less about embarking on something new and more about happily re-living some wonderful, past moments. It was a great game then, and, even 10 years later, it’s still a great game—made even better by the bundle of Creation Club DLCs thrown into the mix. Skyrim‘s been around for a long time, now, and, whether you like it or not, the Anniversary Edition shows that Skyrim has still got the ability to stick around for at least a little while longer (I’m sure we’ll get TESVI eventually, though!).
Seriously, we see the memes, the story…. Actually if you haven’t played Skyrim yet (even if you play it on either a freaking refrigerator or a Wi-Fi router), you are definitely missing out on Bethesda’s real deal.
Still a 10/10. Skyrim is a brilliant game and now with the latest version it was great seeing it again with some fresh upgrades. we get new houses, weapons, spells and more. with the ps5 version I had tons of fun going for the different trophy's again as the game felt new again. while playing the game I didn't encounter any bugs outside what is considered normal for Skyrim. obviously the game isn't exactly new so I wouldn't say it's worth it full price unless you're a die hard fan of the game.
Aimed at those who are yet to experience The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the first time, this Anniversary Edition offers exceptional value for money, and is easily the best way to jump into one of the best role-playing games ever made. It may not quite look current-gen, but the fast loading times and reduced storage footprint are both meaningful gains for PS5 players, while the included Creation Club content adds yet more meat to the game’s bones which are already heaped with flesh. For those that have already played Skyrim to exhaustion, however, there’s not much here to draw them back. Though being able to upgrade from the Special Edition for just £15.99/$19.99 makes it very enticing.
Skyrim’s 10th anniversary edition is a rich and polished package, offering over hundred hours of top class RPG experience. If you never got the chance to play it back in 7th generation, now is the best time to do it.
What was once the pinnacle of its genre has become a bit of a joke as it releases again and again and again. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition adds very little that can’t be found in the 2016 Special Edition or is already free with Creation Club content. There is enjoyment to be had out of playing the game in the new survival mode and I still adore the base game. However, Skyrim just isn’t as strong when held up to modern standards, and it is the fault of Bethesda that this tired horse is now running a race with so many others that are leagues faster.
On the PS4 it really is worth upgrading to Aniversary edition since mods were not a thing before. But on PC you could already have a ton of more mods availabe to you. Plus it crashed your game when it was released. It was recently patched from Bethesda. On a PS4 pro it gets a 10/10 from me, but on PC it does not make much of a difference and looks like just another cash grab from Bethesda. 4/10 for PC.
