    Starfield Review

    The promise of Bethesda Game Studios titles is always that of infinite possibilities in a reactive, deeply engaging world. It's a formula that has been iterated on several times since 2002's Morrowind, and Starfield now offers the best-ever version of this most potent concoction - even in the face of a smattering of trifling issues.

    Starfield is at its best when narratives accidentally unfurl before you. For example, in the early hours of my adventure, I set my sights on a simple goal: I wanted a bigger, better spaceship. I decided to ignore the main quest and take on any side quests and jobs I found with the simple aim of amassing cash to spend in the ship customization suite - or perhaps, if I was really flush, on a pre-built ship from a vendor. So, off to space work I went.

    [...]

    The question for the public is, I think, more simple than this monster-length review suggests. This is another one of those games. This is indeed Space Skyrim - but with more new systems and mechanical depth than I'd anticipated. But it's also space Skyrim in a warts-and-all way - many of those same flaws and foibles remain. For those who have tired of this formula, who feel that it has had its time - Starfield may well be a swing and a miss. For me, however - I disagree.

    This is absolutely the evolution I never knew that I wanted from the RPG subgenre probably best nebulously described as a 'Bethesda game'. For the first time, I'm actually truly attached to my character and their life in one of these games - and that's been transformative. That's been achieved through a number of changes, some of them imperceptibly small - but they work. That's the real story here. Starfield works - even though it's so big that I doubted that it ever could.

    Score: 9/10
