I find their Tamriel to be rather watered down and bland. The sheer volume of bugs at this stage is unforgivable. Over half of the quests I did couldn't be completed. On the orc island I think there were only 3 or 4 I could complete and therefore had no way off the island. This at 2 weeks before launch? Cereal?

Classes. TES are class free games. If they're going to do classes then they should have done all the classics instead of 4 crappy hybrids.

Console game. It's a console game with a console UI. I hate that shit so much! It's like DCUO. You feel completely crippled and limited playing games like this on the PC when you compare them to things like CoX or most any other PC MMO with a few hotbars worth of stuff at your disposal. Then they take the absolute worst aspects of Skyrim - the console UI for inventory, quests, etc and use that!!! Wtf?

Crafting is shite and far too hard to grind basic stuff. Christ, you can even craft multiple items! You have to sit there and click create item over and over.

100s of other people all doing the same boring quests as you - the chosen one - make it considerably less special.

I could go on and on pulling this game apart but it's not worth my time. They not only fail to leave the worst of TES behind and improve it, they fail to advance the MMO genre and actually move backward in many cases. They made just about every wrong decision possible in creating this game.

Bethsoft are fools for wasting money on this and instead should have worked on doing limited MP/Co-Op for the next TES title instead. This is just 100 mil - or whatever it is - down the drain.
