To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
When I bought this game it took me a week to figure out how to get Steam to work just so I could play Skyrim. It was so frustrating and you know what the most frustrating part was? The fact that Steam did NOT help me. If you purchase this game, please be aware that Steam may not work and that you are on your own. They will NOT help you at all. Good luck. Skyrim is a fantastic RPG and I adore this game so much but I dislike Steam. So please be careful when buying this game.
This review is specifically related to this version/package of the game and not the game itself. It requires the installation of Steam, which is an i-tunes like game library manager. The combination proved very buggy with Windows 10. It took a couple of days of fiddling and lots of researching of discussions to get it to work on a new Windows 10 PC. I would not recommend this version unless you are comfortable messing around with files, ini files, dlls, file rights, and that sort of thing.
I wish it more prominently labeled itself as a Steam version of the game. I purposefully bought a physical copy instead of buying in the Steam Store release because this game supposedly has good Wine support under Linux. I was really looking forward to finally trying the game that everyone was talking about a few years ago, but this really took the wind out of my sails. I guess I'll look into whether I can install Steam in Wine alongside native Linux Steam.
Was looking forward to playing this after years of hearing about it. Strangely it did not recognize my video card and runs ridiculously slow so that it is unplayable. And my computer is newer than this game. Ah, what's another 20 bucks between friends?
