    TL;DR: It feels like a cheap mmo in a lot of ares. 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

    Stay away from the game

    So I've been an Elder Scrolls fan since Morrowind first came out. Bethesda has done excellent job bringing a world together that intrigues the imagination and allows freedom of choices. However, Zenimax is the driving f... Read Full Review
