The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Install vs. Non-Installed Screenshot Comparison

The internet is rife with rumours of bugs and screenshot comparisons over the last few days, comparing the install version against the non-installed version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Reports came in thick and fast that the installed version of the latest Bethesda title actually looked worse than the non-installed version. Obviously, not installing it though adds seconds onto the load times and also causes your console to make obscene noises whilst you try and immerse yourself in the vast world.

In order to see for ourselves and to help you decide whether you should install it when you get your hands on it tomorrow, we decided to snap screenshots from both the installed and non-installed versions of the title. Creating saves and then loading, snapping a shot as soon as the game loaded, from our experience, there really isn’t much of a difference. Now, obviously, this is our experience with the title, using an Xbox 360 Elite to play the game and is not indicative of everyone’s experience, but for most people, they should see what we saw. It's worth noting that the comparisons and complaints appear to have appeared pre-patch as well.

In short, install the shit out of it as soon as you get it. Take a look for yourselves below and make up your own mind. If you want to see the proper 1280 x 720 captures, click the images; we suggest clicking them and flicking back and forth between the windows/tabs if you really want to compare them.

If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t forget to check out our review of Bethesda’s latest title right here, right now.
