The Elder Scrolls Online was hyped up far too much. It is a decent MMO, but not quite as decent an Elder Scrolls title.
As with most other Elder Scrolls games, you can select your race (minus the Imperial race) and have mostly free reign over what skills you pick in the game. However, a lot of these skills are restricted to which class you pick, which is severely limited compared to most MMOs and the classless system in previous Elder Scrolls games.
Combat is similar to other Elder Scrolls games, with basic attack, block, and skill abilities. However, most enemies have a charge up skill that is telegraphed and easily blocked, which is something previous Elder Scrolls games don’t have. Loot from combat is very different, as enemies now have loot tables; you can no longer loot an enemy for all the armor and weapons they are using, and gold is severely limited.
Crafting is very similar to previous Elder Scrolls games, but due to the severely slow drop rate of materials, it will take a lot longer to craft weapons and armor.
The Elder Scrolls Online is far more limited and restricted when compared to previous Elder Scrolls games. It provides a bare bones Elder Scrolls experience in MMO form that is worth your time only if you aren’t a diehard Elder Scrolls fan.
Took a leap of faith and enjoyed ithelletson | Dec. 26, 2014 | See all helletson's reviews »
I took a bit of a leap of faith with this one and I can gladly say I did not regret it one bit. the monthly fee can be a bit of a put off with the already high price and being barred from the imperial race without paying for the imperial edition is slightly agitating. but all in all the game itself is solid and enjoyable.
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.
