The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Walkthrough
The massive popularity of Skyrim with the critics in its first days of release and
the massive number of perfect 10 scores it received made it seem as if another
perfect game had arrived. But like the Fallout series and, if we are being candid,
some of the previous games in the Elder Scrolls series, the shining praise was a bit
premature… Even though the game had been declared Gold weeks before launch, the
reality is anything but that.
To put it simply, this is one of the most bug-filled releases every to emerge from
Bethesda Studios. It was clearly not fully tested before it was release — or it was
fully tested and released in what can only kindly be called a late-beta stage simply
to get it in stores in time for the holidays.
If I make that sound bad well, in a way it is. Don’t take this wrong — the game is
playable — there are only a few really game-breaking bugs and if you are lucky those
can be avoided or at least you can revert to a save before the bug messed everything
up and then not do the thing that triggers it.
I learned these lessons the hard way, being forced to restart twice and revert the
game countless times and that, combined with personal life issues, made this guide
two weeks late. That is never a good thing. But it is here now, and that is a good
thing, because you are going to need it.
