The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Nintendo Switch Edition
Top Critic Average
Although it may not be immune to the test of time, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim still holds up as one of the most immersive virtual worlds ever created in a video game. All of its vastness, beauty, characters, stories, and goofy bugs fit nicely onto the Switch, where it runs at a good, steady framerate and resolution. The addition of motion controls are handy unless you plan to be a melee fighter, and amiibo support is a nice touch, but neither is really a game changer. This is a great way to get your Skyrim fix if you've never played before or have been looking for a reason to jump back in.
Motion controls add a breath of fresh air to a familiar game, with astounding results. A must-have for anyone with a Switch and a love of open world games.
One of the best ever Western style role-players is given a new lease of life as a portable game.
The Switch version of Skyrim is a well-executed version of a modern classic that you can play on the go, offering the same delights (and minor frustrations) of the original
A strong foundation and a high-quality port make Skyrim worth revisiting on Switch.
When I ask myself what I'm willing give up to play this on a portable, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch allows me to answer "I don't have to give up much of anything."
Skyrim is pretty much second only to Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it comes to action RPGs on this console.
Despite the fact that it's probably being developed for refrigerators at this point, Skyrim is a great choice to port to the Switch. Very little had to actually be compromised, and unless you have a thing for high-res texture packs on PC, you aren't missing out on much.
Six years after its original release Skyrim is still a magnificent RPG, set in a detailed world. Carrying a game like this in our pocket,thanks to Nintendo Switch, is pure magic.

Being able to take this huge adventure with you everywhere you go is fantastic, and, if you thought that Skyrim took over your life before, now it actually can.
