The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Joins Elite Company

It’s rare for a game to earn a perfect score from Japanese gaming publication Famitsu, it’s even more rare that the perfect game is a western developed RPG. Having secured plenty of perfect scores across the world, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim nabbed the perfect 40/40 score from the Japanese magazine.

Famitsu has never scored a non-Japanese made title perfectly in the magazine’s long history. The perfect scores puts Skyrim in good company with games like Ocarina of Time, Metal Gear Solid 4, New Super Mario Bros, being other recent perfectly scored titles.

Famitsu’s review style is one where four editors each dig into the game to pass judgement. Here’s an excerpt from the review: “Right now, I’d say this is at the top of the heap for singleplayer console RPGs,” wrote Ranbu Yoshida for the review. “The sense of realism and freedom in this title goes far beyond the previous one. Exploring new lands and dungeons, as well as taking advantage of new skills to raise your character, is so fun that you really lose track of time.”
