Skyring is still one of the truly valuable open world role-playing games that offers this value in the anniversary version, and still living in the fantasy world created by Bethesda, even after 10 years of supply is really enjoyable and has many features to surprise the audience.

Skyrim is back yet again, with a graphical makeover and new user generated content, but at full price even fans of brazen commercial cynicism will find their eyebrows quietly reaching for the sky.

‎The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition commemorates the tenth anniversary of one of the best games in history with even more content. It is so big that there will be those who can live without these additions, but for those who have never played it or want to dedicate another 500 hours to it, this is undoubtedly the most complete version to date.‎

Our beloved Skyrim certainly deserved better with the launch of the Anniversary Edition, the new re-release got some tech issues and close to no graphical improvement and sadly missed the change to update the game engine and make the project a full-fleshed remake, there's plenty of new content no doubt but unless you are highly interested in Creation Club content and don't mind it's not voice acted and feels like free mods, you may want to skip this one and hope for better treatment next time

Skyrim: Anniversary Edition is full of lackluster additions to a fantastic game. Some new areas are blocked off, quests feel like busy work, and the new items aren't all that useful. The best parts are already in a free update, so stick with that.

For any console player who already owns the Special Edition, some of the improvements of the Anniversary Edition are already available as free patches. Those folks will find the Anniversary Edition a reasonably priced add-on. It provides a significant new quest, some new mechanics, a new mode, and lots of cosmetic additions, plus access to the Creation Club and mods. Just don’t expect a graphical facelift. For console gamers without any experience of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at all, the Anniversary Edition is definitely the version to pick up. With the Elder Scrolls VI in production, the Anniversary Edition is most likely (and hopefully) the final version of a seriously aging but still viable classic RPG.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition continues to be exactly what makes Skyrim popular: a massive world to explore with tons of different ways to develop your Dragonborne. Outside of that, mods make an appearance and add a bit to the formula in their own way. Outside of that, this Skyrim is exactly as you remember, except it loads a bit faster and plays a lot smoother.

The PC community's mind-blowing commitment to modding is something that Skyrim on consoles will never have, but if you just want to boot up your PlayStation and get lost in what is now a classic fantasy world, Skyrim Anniversary Edition is the best way to do it.

Skyrim Anniversary Edition is a pricey update to a legendary yet aging classic game. For those who already know it by heart, the free update will offer enough reasons to come back.
