Summary

A great 3rd person Adventure game, which gets away from those Tomb Raider Clones.

The Good

Redguard is truly a great game. The island is large, theres plenty of places to explore, great music, nice voice-overs, and a great fighting system. The story is great, very deep, plus you don't have to follow it a set way, you get go thr way you want, you can go in different orders, you can find the restless league before you go to the dwarvn ruins, and vice-versa. The fighthing system is simple, with 3 slashes, and 2 lunges, all easily preformed. The music fits the game very nicely. With plenty of people in town to talk to, each with there own personilty. Also you get to explore the history of Tamerial, and its set in Tiber Septim. The game also has The Pocket Guide to The Empire(tpgtte).

The Bad

A few bugs, some Voodoo 3 problems, 3dfx only. Theres also a few sound card problems, with certeain, sound cards. Some bad voice acting (Mariah's voice.

The Bottom Line

The Voddo3, and sound problems can be fixed (offical Redguard fourms, on the site to see how) You don't have to talk to Mariah. Knowing the history is nice, The Pocket Guide to the Empire is reason enough to buy it. This is a must have for Elder Scrolls Fans, even if they don't like adventures, the tpgtte is great.
