    Stay away from the game

    Above Average console MMO but lacks true social spirit

    In general I do not like to play online with strangers in mmo's for various reasons, one of them is the lack of co-operation, another is that I'd rather explore on my own at my own pace. However in this game there seemed... Read Full Review

    Perfect Example of Zenimax Greed and Apathetic Customer Service
