    For console RPG fans like me, this game scratches a huge itch for an Elder Scrolls adventure on the PS4 and Xbox One – until the next instalment of the franchise, this game will do just fine.
  2. This time Zenimax did the right thing. The Tamriel Unlimited is a great improvement over Elder Scrolls Online, with Champion System, Justice System and solid end game content.

    It doesn't have the flair or the polish of a heavyweight like Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn, but it's certainly worth trying if you're looking for seemingly never ending adventures on PS4 – with or without friends.

    It's a good Elder Scrolls game, just not an especially great one. The atmosphere and huge amount of quests keep the game interesting, but the individual player's experience is held back by the MMO frame, while the graphics are severely disappointing. Fans shouldn't hesitate, though.

    The Elder Scrolls Online has received a number of fixes, but other shortcomings still persist.

    Caught somewhere between a reverence for its forebears and an unwillingness to forgo MMO traditions, The Elder Scrolls Online is a hybrid game that's exciting and off-putting in equal measure.

    Its simplistic design means TESO feels like little more than an Elder Scrolls-themed amusement park. [Aug 2015, p.88]

    Amazing, well done. Extremely nice, good graphics, the movements is just unbeatable. I have played the PC version for months and in P4 is gameAmazing, well done. Extremely nice, good graphics, the movements is just unbeatable. I have played the PC version for months and in P4 is game is just as good. The game is for single and multi players, the gamer actually can choose how to play, single or multiplayer. Extremely fun game to play with friends, one thing that is just horrible would be voice chat over zone, some guys have no manners, it is not the game's fault but they should remove it, after all people sucks.

    Excellent online gameplay and fluid combat. The graphics are what you can really expect from a 2014 MMO and the PVP full of intensity. LoveExcellent online gameplay and fluid combat. The graphics are what you can really expect from a 2014 MMO and the PVP full of intensity. Love it! While it had a rocky launch it has improved so much and is definitely one of the best MMOs currently out there. Expand

    There were 2 games that I wanted when I bought my PS4, Destiny and Elder Scrolls Online, so I was disappointed when Elder Scrolls came out onThere were 2 games that I wanted when I bought my PS4, Destiny and Elder Scrolls Online, so I was disappointed when Elder Scrolls came out on the PC but not consoles. I bought it on PC anyway and absolutely hated it. Then it came out on the PS4 and I thought I'd leave it alone, but I didn't, I bought it. Quietly. Without letting anyone know. In case it was still a pile of **** It wasn't. It began the same way, in the same area but once I was lose in Tamriel the real fun began. This was what I was expecting last year! A fun experience set in the Elder Scrolls Universe. I was a third of the way through the Witcher 3 when I bought this. Sadly Geralt can wait. I love this game. The quests that lure you in, the voice acting, the music, the graphics, the distant hills and mountains that you can walk to, the crafting, the enchanting, the "feeling" of power in the magic strikes, the plots. I haven't even begun with the PVP or specialised in a guild tree or any of that yet. This is just a great piece of entertainment that takes you along for the ride. And unlike Destiny, I don't have to do the same thing over and over and over again. Any undecideds out there, jump in it's awesome. (I'm actually considering taking out the ESO Plus subscription I like it that much). Love the references to all the other Elder Scrolls areas, that are so familiar from playing the other games, love the lore, the books, the hints to the hidden treasures...I could go on. I thought FF14 ARR was good, this, is even better as far as I'm concerned. Can't wait to get back to Ebonheart. Expand

    I am huge fan of the Elder Scrolls series. I love the lore and everything about it. When The Elder Scrolls Online was first announced, I wasI am huge fan of the Elder Scrolls series. I love the lore and everything about it. When The Elder Scrolls Online was first announced, I was very sceptical. Paid subscription hell no!! A year down the line it got released for the PS4 and the subscription fee was scrapped. Still wasn't interested because I've been hearing so much negatives. But due to extreme boredom on PS4 I finally brought myself to get it. So first off, let me list what's negative about the game that still exist with the PS4 version.

    Cons:
    - Graphics are pretty dated. More like PS3 graphics. And no you listen, graphics do matter!!!!
    - Overall feel is very generic. NPCs and environment are bland, lacking in personality, absolutely nothing that stands out really. Most characters and places look the same.
    - Playing quests as a group is a huge facepalm. Grouping simply means, you are not playing in that same quest but instead, you and other players are playing your own solo quests at the same time same place.
    - Lots of uninteresting and fetch quests, and it's very likely you may get lost or not entirely understand the story as there is a lot to take it. You can't possibly remember everyone or everything. In the end you'd probably don't care.
    - Finding ingredients is very difficult and tedious. They are sparely spread out and I just don't have the patience.
    - Earning gold isn't easy and in the end there's nothing worthwhile to buy besides a mount, or pack capacity. No houses to buy, no nice outfits etc, nothing =(
    -the crown store is way overpriced. $10 for a dress? (that comes with no perks)

    So...then... why do I play this game daily for over a month now and loving it??? Well, as I said, if you're big fan of the series, get it!! Like if you're a fan of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, you'd get the Dynasty Warriors series. If you're willing to look past the cons I've mentioned, the game has lots to offer. Hundreds of hours of gameplay. The map is huge and levelling up as you explore/complete quests across Tamriel is so fun and addictive. You'll be unlocking new skills which allows you to make the ultimate character of your choice and liking. Character creation is quite detailed and you can create good looking characters (unlike in Skyrim/Fallout). The game is being updated constantly with new contents, so there's lots of potential here. Zenimax Online, please don't be afraid to try out new ideas and be creative. And try not to screw us over with ridiculous BS pricing. If your content is worth it, then I'll gladly pay for it. Otherwise, your game will never excel.

    Anyway, overall I'm freaking addicted to this game. If you're not a super fan of the series, get it during a sale. Otherwise, you owe it yourself to try this game out!!! =)

    Alright, I'm going back to playing.

BUT SERIOUSLY, if you're going to charge $60 give me something i might ACTUALLY want to play. I run away because i'm about to die and they hit me from 5 meters away with a sword, they don't have a power pole (Dragon Ball). That's not even the worst part. Why would you create NEW ANIMATIONS if they are going to suck that much balls. At least make them as good as Elder scrolls IV? Why not recycle Skyrim's animations since at least they don' look like EARLY PLAYSTATION 2 Expand
