    ZeniMax has made changes that do much better The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited. Best of TESOTU there is no monthly subscriptions and improvements in gameplay, and worst, third person combat controls and servers stability.

    I am still torn between the well executed integration of typical (offline) Elder Scrolls elements and the necessity to cater to the typical online mechanisms. But the abolition of subscription fees makes it so much easier to get drawn into the world that had its share of problems when it opened the door to an Online-Tamriel more than a year ago on PCs.

    The Elder Scrolls Online: TU's combat handles well on a gamepad, making it a great way to experience all this content.

    Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has addressed many of the issues that plagued the first title. There are still some issues with clipping, connections, and voice chat, but the game is still quite enjoyable with plenty of quests to complete and areas to explore. It isn't the perfect MMO by far, but at least it's one that won't cost you $15 a month and you can come back to it whenever you feel like exploring Tamriel.

    TESO: Tamriel Unlimited looks torn between being accessible to the classic Elders Scrolls fans and being a proper, full-fledged MMORPG, failing to completely satisfy in both areas. Its early server problems, with disappearing characters and invisible objectives, don't help either.

    Bethesda have taken the grandiose essence of The Elder Scrolls and diluted it into an MMORPG with some success, but there's still a way to go to fully realise that ambition.

    Vast, occasionally beautiful, and absolutely loaded down with things to do, but rarely as magical as the numbered Scrolls games. Survive the first few hours and it's a memorable adventure.

No subscription required is a big big bonus, it tips the balance to buy it so much more. Ignore the lazy website reviewers, who likely based their reviews on the fact they have played the PC version to death. They have likely not thought of this as a whole new experience for console owners. As a stand alone game this is worthy of the elder scrolls canon, Including PvP into the mix with multiplayer dungeons and you have a very enjoyable experience to keep coming back to. Highly recommended. Expand

I'll be honest, my first opinion wasn't great, just so much to take in with no idea what I was doing. Played for an hour then didn't come back to it for a few days. Then I found the more I got into it, the more depth I found. The amount of detail is amazing. If you are an explorer type like me you're going to have a blast, this game encourages exploration.

Brilliant voice actors that create an enjoyable experience. Quests are very fun and not all of them are go 'get this'. Brilliant graphics for a console mmo game. Classes are fun because you can me a mage wielding flaming swords. Wide variety of spells with skills and different guilds your character can go in. The fighting system is not at all clunky and is fun to play with.
    PvP you can storm castles with cascades of other people wielding spells and swords. Crafting is fun and different from other systems. Finally this is not a skyrim multiplayer but an mmo.

    This is a great MMO. No, it's not Skyrim, but it was never meant to be. If you go in thinking, "Oh, this can be co-op Skyrim!" you'll beThis is a great MMO. No, it's not Skyrim, but it was never meant to be. If you go in thinking, "Oh, this can be co-op Skyrim!" you'll be sorely disappointed. Yes, it has it's fair share of fetch quests, and while they get old, they are balanced out by some truly great and deep quests. You'll probably see a lot of complaints about graphics, and while the game won't amaze you with graphics, it won't disappoint you either. Remember, its an MMO, and MMOs are way more focused on building a huge world and awesome group content than stop you in your tracks graphics.
    Moving along, the PVP is great in this game. The area of the world it takes place in is HUGE. Storming a keep with 50 other players has been one of the most fun experiences I've had in a very long time.
    Lastly, the crafting in this game is sooooo good. If you've played MMO's before than you'll know how cookie cutter everyone eventually looks. But ESO does a great job by making the crafting relevant endgame. You're an orc who uses a giant axe, but you want to wear nord pants and a wood elf light armor helmet? That's 100% possible.
    In summary, this is a fantastic game, IF you dont go in expecting it to be Skyrim 2.0. Treat it for what it is, an action oriented MMO, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    In trying to secure a Teen rating, Zenimax inadvertently developed a boring game. An MMO set in the Elder Scrolls Universe had limitlessIn trying to secure a Teen rating, Zenimax inadvertently developed a boring game. An MMO set in the Elder Scrolls Universe had limitless potential but Zenimax ignored it all for cookie cutter side quests that come off as repetitive and pointless. The freedom and that one has grown used to and come to enjoy with the title is gone. If you want to kill the racist dark elf plantation owner because of his views on slavery, you can forget it; BUT don't worry because there are plenty of "recover the sacred family Heirloom" missions while the war around you pops off to keep you busy for days. This game lacks flavor. Expand

    Hi , I work closely with ZOS and this is my honest review :

    Elder Scrolls Online is the s h i t t i e s t most god awful game on the planet. I'd
    rather swallow p!ss, sh!t, cum and puke than play another minute of this game!!!

    This is not an ELDER SCROLLS GAME, it's a cash grab! Sure, it's addicting if you're
    an Elder Scrolls fan because you play for a while, invest some hours into it but then you
    start seeing how depressing and soulless the world around you is compared to solo ES
    game and then you think to yourself "an Elder Scrolls game can't be this bad, can it?" ....
    You begin to lie to yourself and ignore any doubts you have and before you know it your
    life is down the s h i t t e r Do not buy it unless you have no life and/or have no interest in good
    story, immersion, etc, or if you're brain dead and retarded.
    ** 0/10 I now need to be lobotomized
