Simpily one of the best games ever.

The Good

The Elder Scrolls Arena, is the first game in the Elder Scrolls series, and it is very good. With 8 races, and 18 classes, you have a bit to chose from. It's non-linear, very, if you want to kill a elf, walkng in town fine, if you want to break into a noble house and rob it fine, if you want to be a noble knight and kill those scumbag, fine. The fighing system is good, simple, you click and drag mouse. Theres over 400 places to visit, and the wilderness, is real fun to travel, on your way you'll find, people, temples, houses, wayside inns, and crypts and that sort of stuff. It's big. Also the holidays, which make thing cheaper, free. Then the mighty spell maker, you can make powerfull spells.

The Bad

Bugs. The most annoying one is, when you save your game, the game frezzes, and you lose you save game, making save alot, with servel, games, and that can get confusing. But it's pertty rare.

The Bottom Line

If your a rpg fan, and see this game, buy it.
