Very Fun, but NOT worth the FeeKveni | Nov. 11, 2014 | See all Kveni's reviews »
I love Elder Scrolls, I'm going to say that right off the start. This game, though, could've been such a good one. I mean, have you HEARD of the sales on the previous Elder Scrolls games? HECK, I still even play Morrowind and Oblivion lots, and Skyrim I can't put down! But this game had me from the start, and I was ready to pre-order it as soon as I could... and then something changed my mind... a fee that would make me lose my money in a way that I didn't WANT to lose it. I'm willing to shell out 69.99 for an Elder Scrolls game, I really am, but this is not the experience I would pay four times the amount of the base game a year on. I love Elder Scrolls so much, and I loved testing it out, it was so much fun, but until this game goes subscription free, I'll let my account sit for a while.
Elder Scrolls Online Hyped a bit too Muchyngdr | Aug. 14, 2014 | See all yngdr's reviews »
I beta tested a few instances of ESO. I ran into quest problems NPC's doing weird things to name a few problems. However, in its latest state it is getting better but still not worth the price tag. Lag seems to creep in a few times, but nothing to get you killed by. The graphics are Skyrim level but not the scripts. What the developers should have done was write code to implement online versions of Skyrim rather then a whole new game that tries way too hard to do the WOW thing. Quests are similar with help me get or kill this many mobs, I understand limits on what one can do to gain exp in a game with many others, but creative thinking could have paved the way for more exciting variations. the Sounds i cant say anything bad about as they were great when I played, just the talking scripts were a bit off as I said above. My suggestion is wait a bit and grab it when it drops or goes free to play.
A Disappointment to Elder Scrolls.StupidMarioBros | July 14, 2014 | See all StupidMarioBros's reviews »
Skyrim is one of my favorite RPGs of All time, but this just feels like a cheap MMO knockoff of world of warcraft.
I was hoping for a more feel of skyrim but custom built for a multiplayer game, but I was okay with a MMO, but they still screwed that up with very boring gameplay that feels like a chore. If you want a new MMO to play, its decent I guess, but it is pretty boring to me.
Filled with moneygrabs and micro transactions, this game keeps asking money for more DLC, monthly payment, and more. Terribly overpriced.
Not worth your money, and probably the worst in the series. Hopefully Elder Scrolls VI will make up for this mistake.

This game is a must have for every gamer's collection. With its top of the line gameplay and graphics it serves perfectly to entertain and enjoy you. Not only that, but because the steam workshop is available for it, you can mod the PC version to literally add whatever you like.
I highly recommend this game.

The Elder Scrolls Online struggles with an identity crisis. It wants to stay true to the original titles, and the player can see that with familiar landscapes, involved lore and story, and soft action combat. Yet it also is first and foremost an mmorpg and caters more heavily to those features. The voice acting is great. One of the best voiced acted mmorpgs out there. The world and lore are relatively interesting, with lore books and a detailed zones. The AvA PvP is really fun if you enjoy large scale battles.
And here the attempt to blend both worlds, the massive and the single, doesn't work as well as the developers planned. Lack of true exploration with loading screens and leveled zones. Granted, the zones are decently sized, but there is little incentive to go rampaging across the countryside because there will always be one of two things: An obvious quest item or NPC marked clearly on your minimap, or a chest, which, I will say, is occasionally fun to open. No real Player to NPC interaction, i.e stealing or reputation status. Phased "instances" which adjust to your quests, but make other players or party members not on that quest invisible. The combat is halfway decent, it has soft targeting and pseudo action abilities. It's fun if you want to try something a little different. Overall, the game isn't bad, and I wouldn't disapprove picking it up when it's on sale to get a free one month and try it out for yourself. Or, you could wait until more planned features are added (dark brotherhood, thieves guild) if you want to get more bang for your buck.
