I played it during the beta. I got an invite for it and gave it a shot. It does have that Skyrim'ish feeling, but it's boring. I could barely find any plot and the quests were dull. The grinding is absolutely killer. I'm a pretty patient guy but I couldn't handle grinding in ES:O. IDK it was boring as hell. You barely get any instructions about how to do other activities such as crafting, banking, alchemy n stuff. You have to deduce and risk losing stuff when learning these things, without knowing how its affecting the outcome. Really, I found it very boring and a flop.Remember, I only played it during the beta, so it might have changed.
I want to play it, but from what you said..Lets put it this way, shall we?"Mommy, i'm scared"
You could try it. It's been a long way ever since the beta, things must've changed alot. I didn't try dungeons and PVP too, because somewhere my quests got bugged. Specifically one where I had to find a mob that didn't exist in a certain area pinpointed by the quest and didn't know on which other area it could exist, blocking me from any other main quest (so I couldn't get out of my character's origin town) and I had completed every side mission. Only thing left was grinding and submitting a ticket (which wasn't answered since in the beta days it was a glitch fest).The game's world is very open. Not as much as Skyrim, but it is indeed very open. You can have fun exploring in it, and I did when I started it. Had fun sniping draugr and skeletons, burning them with magic and using big hammers to smash crabs.
I haven't played it, but I've never actually heard good things about it. I know it's definitely not for me because the devs basically payed no attention to the games' lore, which is one of the highlights of the series for me. That and mods, of course.
I got invited to the Beta too but I had read like 2 days before it was going to be a monthly-payment game so I didn't want to try the Beta. Would suck to fall in love with a game and then not be able to play it...Yeah, I can't get dolars in my country. It's some kind of camouflaged dictatorship.
