Bethesda announces impressive launch sales for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim...

Outside the ludicrous sales figures of Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has set a competitive tally for the best-of-the-rest this year with over 3.5 million unit sales worldwide in its first two days on the market and a total of 7 million shipments to retailers.

Bethesda hopes to secure $450 million (£285 million) in revenue from global sales as a result of these shipments, with retailers across the globe already requesting reorders from the publisher. Meanwhile, on the digital download PC front, figures from Steam have pulled in a record-breaking 280,000 concurrent users within the first 24 hours of release.

Alongside Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim is the most critically acclaimed game so far this year according to its standing on Metacritic. Bethesda claims to have received over 50 perfect scores for the game from reviewers so far (TVG's review is forthcoming – the last we heard, our reviewer was attempting to scale The Throat of the World and may have become lost).

According to Chart-Track figures for the UK, Skyrim enjoyed the fifth biggest launch so far this year behind Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, and Modern Warfare 3.

Pretty good, but not perfect by any means. Graphics are superb and content is plenty however the game is still plagued with issues even after the last patch. Too many NPC's in the game are immortal and that takes a whole lot out of the game. If there are npcs in the game who are immortal then the citizens of skyrim should send these immortal souls out to fight the dragons and wage war. Dragons are unbelievably weak while city guards are unbelievably powerful? Mmm K! On the ps3 the weapon racks and plaques are still unusable post patch and this is something that has been brought up by countless people since day one. Some spells don't work properly such as "Fury". Some side quests lack clear guidance or give none at all, have no title, and completed portions of the these certain quests cannot be referenced in your completed quests log. Enemy bodies disappear, float, fall through the earth, or get stuck in objects. You can glitch kill in just about every single encounter including dragon battles. The enemy seemingly gets confused, can't climb or jump to reach you, or for unknown reasons flee from combat allowing execution style kills and cheap shots. Perhaps one of the only challenges in the game is battling the city guard which reaps no reward and gains you faction with noone which doesn't seem or feel accurate. Infact I am willing to go out on a limb and say the game is far FAR more scripted then Oblivion ever tried to be and as far as replayablity doesn't measure up to Oblivions replayability respectably speaking. Never the less I own the game and play it often, a masterpiece in its own ways. It is a product of hard work, imagination, creativity, and passion and it stands proudly as a crowning jewel in the Fantasy RPG genre.

The grammer is fine anon... I thought that the less than perfect game engine and rag doll effects make the Bethesda games have a lot of charm.
