    Fantastic MMO (Warning: For True Adventurers Only)

    Firstly, to reviewers giving this game a 0 is absurd. For a game to score 0 means it has a terrible soundtrack, terrible gameplay, terrible graphics, terrible storyline etc. So If you find you did not enjoy this game at ... Read Full Review

    Beast of an MMO!!

    The game takes place during the Age of Heroes, 1,000 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and will feature classic regions of the Tamriel game world, including Morrowind, Daggerfall, and Skyrim. The E... Read Full Review

    Watered down online

    Played two Elderscrolls games prior to the beta. Played 80% of the beta sessions since August. Yes, it succeeds as a MMO version of Elder Scrolls. You get the same minimal interface, skills improve as they're used, craf... Read Full Review

    Out of this world!

    For an MMO, the graphics are short of perfection. Amazing environments, great attention to detail at every corner and a decent story line that I'm starting to like more and more everyday. The game isn't as easy to get i... Read Full Review

    It's a decent game, but don't get your hopes up if you're an ES fan

    The game can stand on it's own, but this shouldn't have been called "Elder Scrolls" at all, because it doesn't feel or play like any Elder Scrolls game. In combat you don't really have to aim spells, they will automatic... Read Full Review
