The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Reviews
The Elder Scrolls Online: TU's combat handles well on a gamepad, making it a great way to experience all this content.
The Elder Scrolls Online features entertaining quests, dynamic combat, and a whole lot of other people. Sadly, those other people largely feel like an unnecessary addition to the game.
Zenimax has learned from his mistakes, greatly improving the one that is finally beginning to become a worthy multiplayer title of The Elder Scrolls

A good MMO adapted perfectly to consoles, but that takes us in English and suffers from a certain lack of original content.

The console transition feels right, complete with tight controls, and a host of experiences to be had in Tamriel. If you are fan of MMOs, and must get your fix on consoles, this is as good as it gets.
Bethesda have taken the grandiose essence of The Elder Scrolls and diluted it into an MMORPG with some success, but there's still a way to go to fully realise that ambition.
Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has addressed many of the issues that plagued the first title. There are still some issues with clipping, connections, and voice chat, but the game is still quite enjoyable with plenty of quests to complete and areas to explore. It isn't the perfect MMO by far, but at least it's one that won't cost you $15 a month and you can come back to it whenever you feel like exploring Tamriel.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, despite its small issues, is an excellent game and easily an essential title for any PS4 and Xbox One owner. In the name of The Nine, I urge you to add this to your collection – or face Tiber Septim's wrath!
The game is worth its asking price for its sheer volume of content alone, and while not all of it is gold, you'll find as much bang-for-buck value here as in any other multiplayer online adventure on console, subscription-based or otherwise.
If you haven't had the chance to experience an MMO or previous Elder Scrolls game before, then this is a perfect one with which to take the plunge.
Despite its sometimes obvious flaws, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited provides a shocking amount of content for the asking price – even if the deciding factor is the fact that it's had its subscription fee scrubbed away. Accessible systems make it a brilliant MMO entry point for console owners who perhaps haven't dabbled in the genre before, while its fast-paced combat and addictive character development should keep most RPG fans happy.
Caught somewhere between a reverence for its forebears and an unwillingness to forgo MMO traditions, The Elder Scrolls Online is a hybrid game that's exciting and off-putting in equal measure.
Solo-MMO for story lovers, which offers great quests but little content for fans of classic online role-playing games.

The new expansion for TESO is not as big as the previous DLC, Orsinium. It costs a little less (2000 crowns) and has a light-hearted questline. The interesting thing is that it enhances and upgrades the gameplay, finally giving a relevance to the shadowy, stealthy and furtive activities.

Unsurprisingly, the game runs as well on consoles as its predecessors, and its tried-and-true combat is a clean fit for the MMO format.
With no real upgrades from the PC version and a dated look, as well as multi-player gameplay that never forces the issue, "The Elder Scrolls Online" is more a side quest for the series than something new and fresh.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is a long term commitment. It is a game that is meant to be played over time, with nuances to the game that you may never even encounter, depending on how you decide to play the game. Fortunately, there is no subscription fee for console players, which removes a huge barrier of entry, and though it is an MMO, it strikes a balance of being enjoyable enough to play solo as well. If you're looking for Skyrim Online, you won't quite find that depth here, but the sheer magnitude of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited makes up for it, and there's nothing quite like running into your friends while questing across Tamriel.
While we're not so impressed with the graphics, TESO has made a fine transition to console in terms of controls, interface and the all-important gameplay. At its best, it's still a solid, exciting MMO, with masses to explore, some great quest-lines and some fun multiplayer gameplay later on. At its worst, you can feel it falling somewhere between being a solo RPG and a true MMO, and the quest-lines fail to grab your interest. Tamriel is well worth exploring on PS4 and Xbox One, but those looking for an MMO equivalent of a Skyrim or Oblivion may go away disappointed.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited makes its console debut in quite a functionally good fashion. The additional content, improved stability and expansive adventure makes for a great game.
A seamless transition to consoles with superb controller support and hundreds of hours worth of gameplay to dive into, all without a monthly subscription.
