Default skyrim : first review on youtube

My review of skyrim, i didn't want to say too much to let you get the atmosphere of the game

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Review & First Steps (Maxed out gtx 570) [Part 1] - YouTube

some compared the graphics to the withcer 2. well it is easier to make incredible graphics when the player has to follow a corridor ! In the skyrim the world is totally opened and you can see every detail from faraway. The dungeons could be better i give you that.

Crappy textures and generation old graphics but seems like a great storyline. I'll wait till it goes on sale...

Edit: And try not to be so obvious. It wasn't "found" on Youtube. You're pimping your own review.

Screens look pretty exceptional to me.

The Witcher 2 truly looks better then Skyrim does, along with the gameplay. I'll still give it a chance, I just think it isn't going to be GOTY type material against other games such as The Witcher 2.

You do realize that those photos are not in-game, right? They are heavily Photoshopped and sent by the publishers to the press.

Full motion can be seen here and the difference is striking...

Well I will see in a few hours when it gets unlocked on steam. I have not held out too many hopes for great graphics as I know they designed it for the consoles and that alone cripples the hell out of the PC version.

I really like the graphics in the Oblivion game but that was years a go to me this game looks to have about the same as oblivion and I really hope that the storyline at least is as good as Oblivion's.

Definitely a thumbs down from me, not that good of a review, seems like a rip off and he's shot gun spamming this all over different forums to get hits.

Comparing The Witcher 2 to Skyrim, is like comparing Battlefield 3 to MW3 (aka COD4 maps copy pasted) ..

*Graphically Only!*
