    Even if it has some good ideas and it’s well adapted to this new platform, The Elder Scrolls Blades has also many flaws. A perfectible movement system, broken core mechanics, glitches… There’s still some work to do.

    The Elder Scrolls: Blades has a few bright spots, but this watered-down version of Tamriel is far from the mobile Elder Scrolls game fans may have been hoping for. [Early Access Review]

    Just another mobile con job...A toned down Dungeon Keeper Mobile with boring combat and a deliberately unrewarding "reward" system, Blades is another shameless cash grab from a company that should know better.

    Pros: Traditionally beautiful elder scrolls graphics and sound. Easy to use interface. Fun tutorial.

    Cons: linear game play...there is little open world game play here. Navigation is clumsy. Biggest issue: this is not an elder scrolls experience. This is Bethesda’s cash grab attempt at a time-based environment improvement game. A review I reposted on the apple store captures this perfectly but apple deleted it (censoring feedback).

All the 'gameplay' difficulty is focused on planning for mission, which upgrades to makes, etc. Actually the gameplay is so boring that you can pay in the game to skip the gameplay (on the mission board).
    The game monetisation is very aggresive in a bad way (15$ for a weapon about 5x better than the normal is pay to win). Also the weapon will be obsolete after 1 week, where you'll get another offer for 15$+ for a better weapon.
    Skipping wait time to open chest is another monetisation path, equally as bad as most chest give worthless content in comparaison with paid weapon.
    Disclaimer: I played the game on Android (Note S8). On the teach side the game is extremely janking, skipping frame all the time. The lack of dynamic character shadow break the immersion quite a bit.
    The amount of loading screen is quite impressive, and they end up being very long.
    I'm not sure what to praise about that game, it's probably worth 0/10 but I don't want to be that mean to a franchise I love.

    A game built entirely around the monetization, not the other way around. What the hell, Bethesda?

    Never seen a game with less than 1 on the rating scale. Who said Bethesda don't innovate?

And to open those quickest - I wouldAfter 3h of play time I have accumulated a whopping 28h of net wait time. Waiting for loot boxes to open. And to open those quickest - I would have to wake up every hour, open the app and click a few things. So effectively I can't play for a week until everything is opened.
    Alternatively I could pay, but even that would cost me £5 for just 3h of play time. What If I played another 3h, it would be another 5er - or another week of waiting.

    The game itself is so repetitive, there are only 3 randomly assembled dungeons, you'll have seen it all after an hour or so. No voice over, no interesting story lines, the combat is meh, the sound is not always coming from wherever the enemy is. It's all a big mess, not worth even a smaller microtransaction. Stay away from this one!
