Summary: So here it is, Bethesda Softworks's attempt at crafting the next big massively multiplayer online game. In an era when developers are taking their MMOs free-to-play or bringing their best to the MOBA genre, Zenimax has poured five years of manpower into crafting an authentic Elder Scrolls...
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
Conclusion: Elder Scrolls Online is about as middle of the road as an MMO can get.

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.
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: 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.
