After being driven back to WoW after playing in the ESO BETA, I decided to purchase ESO, as I really really want to like this game and give it more of a chance.
Here is my review, after a few days of playing as well as several beta weekends.
Beautiful Graphics, better storyline than what was in BETA (it seems), as well as voice acting, smooth release, no lag, no performance issues. I enjoy the combat, being able to dodge manually, block as well, and interupt all based on movement and clicking.
The UI is very intuitive, as are the skill tree's and almost all other menu's.
Interesting story, it helps to take your time and not rush thru, and enjoy the immersion.
Gear upgrades that can be done by yourself is refreshing.
Big world, no competiting for spawns, no grind.
No rat race like WoW, where you feel left behind.
Leveling feels good....takes longer to get and you feel like you acheived something.
No way to block Gold Spamers...thats right, the gold spammers have arrived and not only thru zone chat, but using /Yell as well, and there seems to be no way to report ot block them, other than remove zone chat and yell from your options.
Some bugs such as werewolves and other spawns just standing there not able to attack or be attacked.
Everyone look the same, not much to make players unique from each other.
In some areas where mobs of players are all running to the next objective....and thus kind of spoils the mystery...
Also, not really anything new or innovative is being brought to the table MMO wise...
The subscription...come on....that went the way of the dinosaurs....
Horses cost over 40K in gold unless you bought the Imperial Edition, which frankly IMHO is a total waste of money.
Kind of lonely....seems very hard to find groups or invite players into one.
It is the Elder Scrolls...which is the only reason I am playing this game.
However, so far I am enjoying the immersion....this is due to the great graphics, great story and voice overs.
Seems release is much better than BETA IMHO....
I have shut off "zone chat" to stay immersed as I am more interested in it as a MMORPG as opposed to a rat race MMO.
Thus in a nutshell, if you are the type who wants Immersion in your RPG, take your time, enjoy yourself and avoid the MMO rat race, then this game is for you.
Otherwise, as I have learned again....and again....that if a MMO rat race is more suited for you than WoW would be better.
I truly think this game ESO is more of a RPG persons type game.
