  • Summary: As a fan of role-playing games and open-world sandboxes, I've long held a special place in my heart for the Elder Scrolls franchise. Since I was first introduced to the series with Morrowind back in 2002, I've spent countless hours exploring Bethesda's immense fantasy worlds in search of loot,...
  • Pros: Expansive, immersive world full of pleasing landscapes, Many intricate, involving quests, Complex but rewarding PvP
  • Cons: Multiplayer rarely feels like a crucial aspect of the game, PvP map is a bit too big for its own good

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Some might say The Elder Scrolls Online was doomed from the beginning. That despite all its promise and close ties to the monumental critical and commercial success that was Skyrim, it was fatally flawed before it even released.

  • Summary: The Elder Scrolls Online from developer ZeniMax Online Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks is easily one of the most hyped massively multiplayer online role-playing games in some time, primarily due to the fact that it contains the same name and setting of a highly popular RPG series.

The Elder Scrolls Online – Review (PC)

14 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Yeah, we know that the release of The Elder Scrolls Online was last month and perhaps for some this review may come a little late but we felt that a fledging MMO, even as ambitious as The Elder Scrolls Online, deserved a month or so to bed itself in before we gave our review.

  • Summary: MMO' Money, MMO' Problems
  • Pros: Fun, varied crafting system. Large in-game world. Character models look more alive than in previous games.

  • Summary: The Elder Scrolls saga is one that I have followed for many years. With their announcement (eons ago) of an MMO entry to the series, I knew that I would eventually have to accept the fact that the series may lose it’s developed story arcs and go down the route of other, already well established...

  • Summary: The Elder Scrolls Online is a game all about expectations. If you’re looking for Skyrim with co-op, you will be disappointed. If you’re looking for a great PvP experience set in Tamriel, you will be disappointed.

  • Conclusion: From story to scale, The Elder Scrolls Online does its single player predecessors justice while at some parts struggling to find its own identity.
  • Pros: Combat is skill-based and fun, exploration is addictive, game-enhancing modding, large amount of content for a new launch.
  • Cons: MMORPG aspects not fully realized, difficult solo content, quest-hindering bugs.

Review: The Elder Scrolls Online (PC)

2 May 2014
  • Excerpt: It’s an idea we’ve all considered: exploring the vast lands of Tamriel with a friend or two by our side, looting Dwemer ruins, plucking Nirnroots and fighting mudcrabs. Though valiant in their efforts the modders never came close, leaving this monumental dream to newly-minted studio ZeniMax Online.
  • Pros: Alliance War fun for those into PvP, Modding support helps improve experience
  • Cons: No clear gameplay focus, Poor PvE content

1 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls Online is the first attempt at taking the world of The Elder Scrolls to a massively multiplayer online format. The result is a good game but one that will make fans of the series wonder why they should pay the expensive $15 a month subscription fee to play a game from a series that...
