Under a rough surface lies an epic adventure

The Good

The World. A huge gaming world full of quests, factions, lords, ladies, and death awaited the player everytime you started a new game. A new game is certainly that..a brand new game, with new dungeons, new quests, new people. The replayability of this game was staggering

The Bad

The Bugs! Horrible bugs that just seemed to multiply as time went on. Casting magic missle often scheduled a date with the DOS prompt. You really had to save often to have any hope of enjoying this game

The Bottom Line

This game was the first of an entire series of Elder Scrolls adventures. Each new game brought forth a new perspective to the land. I highly recommend playing it even if its for the sake of seeing where it all began. If the presentation doesn't impress you, the scope will!
