Still, I miss physical manuals. Oblivion's manual is one of my favorites for any game, and I don't think paying $80 should include a piece of paper that tells me to go online to find them. This is nitpicking, and doesn't warrant removing a star.
So, what comes in the box?
Elder Scrolls: Arena and a DOS emulator (this game came out in 1994)
Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, also with a DOS emulator (1996)
Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions (2002)
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion with Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine and other minor expansions
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with Hearthfire, Dragonborn, and Dawnguard expansions
Also included, 5 maps for the different areas of each game, but no Shivering Isles map:
Hammerfell (Arena and Daggerfall)
Tamriel (all games)
A Steam account is required to activate Skyrim, even if installing from the DVD; this is not required for the other 4 games. If you've never used Steam, it does NOT require a 100% always-on Internet connection, only an initial one to create an account, then activate and download the game.Read more ›
1. A Collector of Elder Scrolls Games. I say collector because if you started with Oblivion or just picked up Skyrim or even started with Morrowind and want to play the first two they are free on Bethesda's site, go download and play them and buy an expansion to Skyrim if you want to support them.
2. Someone who wants to have all of the discs and not hunt down all of the editions and hope the used copy on sale is good enough.
3. Crazy people like me who buy every edition of every game they love.
Onto the review of the product. As stated in the description you get every Elder Scrolls PC game ever made. Starting with Elder Scrolls Arena. There are instructions on how to install with old DOS / 95 machines or how to configure DOSBox an emulator to play the original game. There is a disc just for Arena in its own slot on the first page of the binder than is covered in fake leather. There are some awesome screen shots of the game along the fold out page that holds the disc and the famous starting quest line quote as the game description. This is what you will find for all of the games. I will not go into detail for each as they are all setup the same and in the back is an ESO decal and maps of the World of ESO.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and well worth the money just for Skyrim alone, not to mention the entirety of one of the most awarded and praised game series of all time. This game series holds its own with Final Fantasy, Zelda, and Diablo. A true experience that should not be missed by any gamer. Good job Bethesda on offering this amazing product.
As for activating the Skyrim DLC, there is a keycode that unlocks "Elder Scrolls Retail" which gives you access to Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim, once Skyrim was installed the Steam installer did download ALL DLC.
Such a GREAT DEAL!
This particular box-set comes with all five games (ES I and ES II are pre-windows, so require the use of the included DosBox software to make them work; ES III, IV, V are installed via Steam) and the expansions for the later part of the series. Not a bad deal for the $25 I paid to pick this up. Even for the normal market price (which seems to be hovering around $50), it is still a great deal if you don't have any of the series already and love RPGs.
The one issue that most people may have is the requirement to register the games with Steam to play/install. I get it that many people are not fans of the online/non physical gaming systems out there and love having copies of their software on hand, so they can install it whenever they want. Steam, however, has made this experience as painless as possible - while offering some really unique features (like player created content for free download) that you can't get with a standalone disc.Read more ›

The games are great as ever. But the last three discs are just codes to download them from steam. The extras in the pack and the box itself are pretty cool though if you're into... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Tyler Hamlin

Pretty neat. The only thing I don't like is the outer plastic shell it came in was all scratched up and pieces of it broken off. The product itself and all its contents were fine.Published 3 months ago by itsdietz
