While all of these enhancements and additions are nice, I still don’t feel like it is worth it for a double dip. Skyrim is still a masterpiece of a video game, but for those that spent hundreds of hours already digging through, there really isn’t enough here to recommend jumping back in. I like the mods, the new visuals are lush, but the core game remains the same. However, for those that skipped out the first time around, there has never been a better time to take an arrow to the knee. Please forgive me for that.
In the end, your decision should come down to how much you love Skyrim's ambition, how much you enjoy exploring its expansive world, and how tolerant you are towards its flaws.
With its host of visual improvements, solid performance and the inclusion of all DLC, Skyrim Special Edition is a must buy for those that are yet to step into its world. Whether it is worth double-dipping for those that have already seen and done everything however, is for them to decide. There’s nothing new to behold, beyond the inclusion of mods which console owners haven’t before been privy to, but there are far worse ways to spend your time and money.
