5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Title and its FREE! February 22, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was groundbreaking when it was released in the mid 90's. It is probably still the largest sandbox style game to this date. You are not required to follow any quest line nor do you fill a specific character role. You simply put into a world where you can do as you please. The world is HUGE! There is roughly 15,000 towns and villages with over 750,000 npc's. It has been estimated that Marrowinds world, the sequal to Daggerfall, is about 0.01% the size of Daggerfalls. I highly suggest any RPG fans, Eldar Scrolls fans, or anybody looking for an amazing game that is extremely fun and to this day does not have many titles that can compare, on top of being 14 years old, I highly suggest you go to the Eldar Scroll website and download this title. It has been free for download, legally, since summer of 2009. Enjoy they just don't make them like they used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ground Breaking! December 26, 2005
By Jagar
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game forever changed my ability to play console RPGs. I was one of those people who started with a game called Miracle Warriors on the Sega Master System and then converted to Final Fantasy when the Nintendo and Super Nintendo were released.

Imagine creating a character of your choice and then being dropped into a massive fantasy world with no boundaries. This is the element that TES - The Elder Scrolls brings to the table. You can follow the main quest or you can adventure and grow your character to the edge of godliness. There are no invisible walls or guided boundaries in your way. You can visit thousands of locations, join hundreds of guilds/factions, go on infinite quests, and create spells/magic items.

Anyway, thats a quick peek at the game. I could easily take up a hundred pages and fill them with vivid detail, but you should just buy and play it instead.

Why is a game made in 1996 selling for $70? Simple, it's totally kick a**!


The graphics are a bit dated by todays account. Try viewing some screenshots on the web to get an idea. Think Doom style graphics.

This game can be difficult to get running on a modern machine for the novice. Often times it requires an Emulator like DosBox or heavy tweaking. In WinXP there is a bug that causes quest monsters/items to be invisible which pretty much ruins the game. There are work arounds, and it doesn't happen to everyone, but beaware of the difficulties of getting this to run. It WILL run though!

Hopefully that helps. Try: [...] for more information.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is a free download February 10, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You can download this game, legally and 100% free, from the Bethesda website. The site will give you detailed instructions on how to get it working. I am currently playing it on a windows Vista machine, and have few problems. (some crashes, and the invisible quest bug) All in all, with a lot of saving, the game is VERY playable.

5.0 out of 5 stars RPG Freeform - Unlimitted Freedom to Explore and Enjoy January 26, 2010
By J. Musk
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To my knowledge there is no game like it on the market. Arena was good, but Daggerfall, 15 years after its release, still has me mesmorized.

There is no limit in this game. I love creating my own character classes, then joining some guilds to grow my character. The game story does not begin until the player accepts the first official quest. The story will not even begin to advance until that first quest has been acted on. Then, watch out. Trust me. You will want to have grown your character to some degree before beginning the story. That encounter with a Vampire Ancient in the 3rd official game quest still makes me shiver . . .

What do you want to do with your character? Buy a house? No problem. Buy a ship? No problem. Break into an armorer's shop and steal him blind, over and over and over (curtesy of a little bug), then sell the stuff back to the same armorer after you've outfitted yourself with the best available at your level while increasing your mercantile skill? No problem.

Even though the graphics are quite dated, the game is fantastic for the casual and hardcore gamer alike. This game is not for the person who requires a story line to keep advancing. This game, simply as a stand alone without any story, would be good enough play. The endless variety of dungeons and the large number of challenging creatures make this game memorable.

There are some pretty bad bugs, though. For example my characters would sometimes fall through the map and end up in a state of limbo where I could see the dungeon from outside, but not be able to re-enter it, or I would simply fall and fall and fall until I fell into water or darkness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Living breathing world, but Do NOT Buy it! November 3, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know that the title may be a bit Contradictory, but that is because QUITE a while ago, Daggerfall was released for free by Bethesda Softworks. However, Still, do not get the official download from [...], but instead download from: [...] , As it includes an Installer .exe and other features, such as Every Patch for the game (Which the official Bethesda release, to my knowledge, does not include) and Pre-Configured DOS-Box settings, so you do not need to go and re-open DOS-Box to load, but just click on a Shortcut. Also, this game was designed for MS-DOS, so you will need a DOS Emulator to play on Modern Operating Systems, Like DOS-Box. Anyways, onto the actual review. Daggerfall is the Second game in the Highly Acclaimed "The Elder Scrolls" franchise of RPG's, and, might I add, is one of the largest RPG's ever made! In the game, you are a friend of the Emperor of Tamriel, Uriel Septim, who has sent you to the Kingdom of Daggerfall in the Illiac Bay of Tamriel, seperating the southern coast of High Rock from the northern coast of Hammerfell, to exorcise the walking spirit of the late King of Daggerfall, Lysandus, but soon the story takes a drastic turn to something FAR greater than avenging his death. What seperates this from other RPG's is that the game takes place entirely from the perspective of the hero, unlike traditional RPG's, which usually have a Bird's Eye view, like Final Fantasy, Baldur's Gate, or Wasteland, but more like Earlier RPG's, like Wizardry, or DOOM. Combat is controlled by holding down the Right mouse button, and moving your mouse in the direction you want to swing your weapon. Read more ›
