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.
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.Read more ›
