First I like to declare I am using a 8800gt, is not the best, but it is not the worst graphics card, so any complains I relate to has nothing to do with my computer.
I have no idea why people support this game, the graphics engine (*I meant graphics and design, not the engine*) is completely outdated, and it is so outdated it reminded me of single player elderscroll a few years back. It would have been good a many years ago (when it should've released), but now is completely terrible. It said there are varieties in character design, the variety of ugliness is the only thing I see, and every character I made is ugly as hell. The advance tool has only limited adjustment, it doesnt make much different to the base face.
You may ask why I am complaining. I have played with the same guild from everquest 1 to daoc to world of warcraft and they've decided to move onto age of conan. I brought this game expecting it to be the next big thing, only to realize it is the next big pile of c***. I personally have also played Final Fantasy 11, hellgate, lineage 2, cabal, sword of the new world, diablo 2 and requiem, so I know what to expect from a mmo.
My maps are blank when I am in several places. The graphics and style are from the 1990's. I keep getting stuck if I tried to jump off edges. When ever you encounter a edge of terran you character cannot move. There is no fluidity. When I play a melee I am often restricted to standing still, if I move while performing a combo it breaks. This is old school.
The elderscroll graphics, the elderscroll movement, (I know elderscroll series well because I love the game at the time, but that was a couple of years ago and only for offline gaming) and dare I say morrowind (*I meant Oblivion*)of elderscroll looked better then this game with several player made mods. These days games need fluidity in combat, guildwars and world of warcraft has fastest movement in pvp. Maybe even requiem if it wasn’t all the bugs. What shocked me the most is the scene with the falling meteoroids, the marks they made are just someone copy and paste a few star shapes. Is this game finished? And also the zoning, why is there so many zoning? You need to zone to go into a building, zone to travel, zone to go into an instance, when you exit game you don’t end up at the character screen. Well, zoning to go into instance is ok, but zone to get into a building is not acceptable these days... This is another elderscroll feature... I swear this game is like elderscroll put online.
Can you imagine world of warcraft having to zone every building you go into. Oh look here is Ironforge I need to go into the bank, I need to zone there... zone out of the bank to ironforge then zone into the auctionhouse and realise you took the wrong item so zone back and redo everything again to get an item.
I am sorry to say this game is absolutely terrible, there are other bugs and nags I encountered. I am still trying to make the most of it, as the guild is starting to make their own towers and I feel I should stick with them. I want to like this game, but is hard, because in the back of my head I personally hate this game to bits, I feel like it is a waste of time to play. This game is worst then the free to play games I've played and doesn't offer anything that matches the value I expect from a pay to play game.
If you want to play Elderscoll online, this is it, just don’t expect an upgrade from last years graphics. If you want to play the next big thing, keep waiting and stick to your other game accounts.
