    It could have been the best current MMO

    Know that I played 1500+ hours before I gave up trying. Also remind yourself that this game came out in 2014, so they had plenty of time to straighten it out. Which they didn't. Sure they created more content to please t... Read Full Review

    Terrible pvp - this is purely a pvp review

    PVE is decent, but if pvp is important to you than this might not be for you. The pvp is unbalanced. Even if you got average build and go up against someone with a better build you are going to see your health dissapear... Read Full Review

    Unplayable

    The servers are broken, the game lags so badly it’s unplayable. I have enjoyed playing this game for many years off and on since beta on the PC and then onto the PS4. The devs priorities are adding overpriced fluf... Read Full Review

    Mediocre (overpriced) MMO, with big label

    TL;DR: It feels like a cheap mmo in a lot of areas. It features: expensive cash shop, lots of paywalls, clunky combat, and inventory management problems....like lots of them.I was really excited finally getting into this... Read Full Review

    Disappointing, But OK

    I am a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls series, but was let down by this MMORPG (like many other people). If you like the Elder Scrolls single player games (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim), then you will enjoy the game. Plenty... Read Full Review

    Though it does some things really well, this game isn't for everyone.

    I am a massive fan of The Elder Scrolls series; I played TES:III Morrowind for about 1300 hours at 3 frames per second on PC back in 2002.This game has some glaring problems that I will remark on before I get to the ove... Read Full Review
