The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
Top Critic Average
Elder Scrolls veterans will be happy with the latest Elder Scrolls title. There is a ton of exploration, plenty of quests and a lot of the Elder Scrolls lore that keeps us coming back for more and more.
Finally after many delays, The Elders Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has arrived to the console, but was it worth the wait? Find out in our review.
Ultimately, there is so much content in this game and it's possibly some of the best dollar per hour entertainment currently available on the current generation of consoles. It's nice and easy to get into if you don't mind a little bit of getting ready and grinding quests.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has taken significant strides to correct the wrongs that plagued its initial release and although there are still a number of issues, they don't massively impact the end product. Admittedly, it has a huge lineage to live up to and when compared to the legendary Skyrim it comes up slightly lacking, but it is still a game that deserves experiencing.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited tries to do many things, yet it is good at none of them.
Sure, Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited has been on the PC for awhile now and although the graphics may not match the PC version, it's definitely a far smoother experience in terms of gameplay and ZeniMax Online Studios should be commended on creating a great control system that really makes this a sturdy MMORPG experience on the XBox One. The only cost that you need is a valid Xbox Gold account and most players can dodge the premium transaction aspect of the game if they want too.
From my endeavors thus far, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has the potential to defy the skeptics and bear fruit on the PS4 and Xbox One. The controller is a far superior input, the interface is much cleaner and more accessible, the voice chat is ideal for grouping, the subscription is now free, and it brings the MMO genre to the console platform that has few competitors at present. The social aspect needs some additions and the Justice System needs to be finished, but these are features that can, and hopefully will, be included with near future updates. But even with its caveats, when faced with both options, I find myself gravitating towards the couch rather than my desk chair for a romp through Tamriel.
The venerable Elder Scrolls series survives the transition to an online game, minus the online aspects that are actually enjoyable.
A seamless transition to consoles with superb controller support and hundreds of hours worth of gameplay to dive into, all without a monthly subscription.
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.
