About this game

Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Content Rating: Mature


The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

I played Skyrim on PC before when I was on college, and it's really a great game that you should play. Though I haven't finish this because of my poor time management skills but still I can sense that the entire gameplay is worth to experience. And now I played it again but not on PC, but on switch. Everything is great but one thing I'm having problem with is the controls, Its very hard to aim enemy and ends up dead, but with few hours of playing found some technique, just grab a horse and leave in front of a fight and make sure not to hit the horse because it will kill you, let the enemies hit the horse because your horse will kill them all in a few attack ;) spoilers! Overall game is great but not on switch

Playing Skyrim in the PS4 or Xbox one is better.

The Switch isn’t short of games that have already taken a bow, or several, on other hardware, but Skyrim might be the one that most deserves another look from both hardy Elder Scrolls adventurers and absolute beginners alike.

Six years later, Skyrim remains true to itself - even on the Nintendo Switch.

Overall, diving back into the world of Skyrim was both nostalgic and exciting. Obliviously if you enjoyed the original but missed out on the DLC or just want to revisit this adventure, Skyrim is a great addition to your Switch library.
