If only they made a true sandbox out of it. Sigh

Played it. It's just a typical mmo skinned as ES. I would kill for real elder scrolls game in 2 player oline co-op. ESO is nothing like it.

Got my beta key! Can't wait to try it :)

Alexious1803d ago

You should make haste, then!

odderz1803d ago

I really hope this is as good as I imagined it would be.

Won't play beta though, I'll wait for release.

TheUltimateGamer1803d ago

Same here.. I'm always reluctant to play betas and debugs. I prefer to play the game upon release in all it's glory. I'm looking forward to this. Should be a good time devourer.

After playing the beta and watching plenty of first impressions, I think I may just hold out for Wildstar and EQNext. Too each their own but I wasn't impressed. Betas are betas though and things can change.... wishful thinking...

I really wish this felt more like Skyrim online. I hate to say it, but it feels like a generic MMO more than an ES game.

BX811803d ago

Did it feel anything like skyrim? I'm on the fence about this game because of the monthly fee. I never played an elder scrolls game till skyrim, and I absolutely liked that game.

MRMagoo1231803d ago

from what i have seen so far its pretty much oblivion online, looks the same and plays the same.

Kamikaze1351802d ago

Not really. From what I've read and seen on Youtube, it doesn't feel like Skyrim for the following reasons:

- Chests are looted by any player that gets to it first and it has a spawn timer. You're going to see a LOT of empty chests because of this.

- Leaving the opening area and into the open world didn't feel amazing like Skyrim or even Oblivion. The open world area is least the area outside of the first part of the game.

- The quality of the game feels lower than Skyrim. Maybe the budget was lower? idk. This includes the animations and some of the textures.

Alexious1802d ago

In some ways yes, but you have to remember that this is a MMORPG, a very different kind of game.

BallsEye1802d ago

Only icons are like in skyrim. Whole game is just like a typical mmo in ES skin. I'm very unimpressed. Bethesda...please make normal elder scrolls with 2 player online co-op!! It's not that hard!!
