Unstable piece of garbage 1/5
Get ready to play a buggy, unresponsive “action” game (even on an iPhone X) which gives you a “challenge” as you struggle to figure out an inconsistent, glitchy combat system. Will you block the attack? Will they block yours? Can you interrupt an attack? Who knows, it’s completely random. And after you manage to complete something difficult, whoops the game needs to resync (because Bethesda doesn’t know how to run a server, see Fallout 76) and what you accomplished just got undone. Don’t waste your time and DEFINITELY don’t waste a dime in this lootbox fest that’s an embarrassment to the Elder Scrolls series.
Daedric Armor 5/5
Can you please add the daedric armor I will pay or even do anything to get or work for it please this game is amazing
Boring and repetitive 2/5
The game has good graphics but you are literally doing the same thing over and over again, download and see, in a week you probably won’t even feel like clicking the icon to play it, Lol seriously
Don’t get me wrong this game could be great, graphics are good for a mobile game and the controls and interactions are simple and easy to use. My only complaint is that I can only spend about 5-10 mins at a time playing the game because it crashes ALOT, but otherwise a good game just wish I could play it without crashing
I know it’s still early access but this game is hot garbage, the movement system is just stupid because if your trying to pick something up and miss in the slightest your character will just walk next to it, this wouldn’t be much of a problem but when your next to it you can’t look down to pick it up so you have to turn around walk away and try again, this happens all the time.
It’s Early Access 4/5
Overall I like the game. The combat is good and the graphics are nice. I like building the town and the ability trees.
What I don’t care for is that it’s 1st person only, I much prefer 3rd person perspective. Also, the chest timers seem a bit long (UPDATE: Silver chest timer has been reduced from 3 hours to 1, though gold chests are still 6 hours). I’d prefer to be able to sell excess chests instead of getting nothing for the chests you don’t have room for.
Offensive potions last only 10 seconds which means lots of play stoppage to use another offensive potion as many battles go well beyond 10 seconds.
I haven’t played The Abyss yet and PvP isn’t integrated into the game yet so I can’t comment on either one.
I can tell you that it runs great on my 64 GB SE.
Tip: Put your Smithy in front of the center gate where you return from quests, and the other vendors beside it. You’ll save time and effort.
More device support 3/5
It’s saying it doesn’t support my phone, and try another device, please fix it I really want to play this game
This is not an Elder Scrolls game 1/5
This game is nothing more than a poorly made micro-transaction fest. It makes me sad to see how far Bethesda has fallen. This “game” is predatory, and has besmirched the storied history of the franchise. Shame on you Bethesda. One day, they will regret exploiting the good will of Elder Scrolls fans for undeserved profit.
Thanks for the bait Bethesda, I thought I would be able to play it because it said my phone was supported but low and behold it isn’t so get stuffed.
Fix the bugs 1/5
Stuck in a “resync” look. I’ll give it a day then delete the app if it doesn’t resolve itself
Not free 1/5
First review of anything on ios. This isnt a game. This is gambling wrapped up with a video game. All high end gear is only obtainable via purchasable loot chests. This is gambling as well as a bait and switch. They keep updating the game to remove the ability to move forward without purchasing something. I rather pay up front than be nickel and dimed to death to play a game. This is just punishment people are paying now to receive. I am no longer a fan of Bethesda. If u want to play games I recommend that u seek another developer and avoid anything from their publisher.
It’s really fun but 2/5
I keep unsyncing or something and until this is fixed I can’t play so I can’t rate more than 2 stars.
Oh come on 2/5
By Chuckles the clown man
Bug. I cant get smithy to level 4. It takes the $ and building material out of my inventory but won’t level up.
It is impossible to continue jobs and quests with the weapons and armor I have, and can’t make better with a level 3 smithy.
The timing on the chests wasn’t the worst thing (they did fix it) but at level 18 can’t even pass a quest without dying so no money so no repairs much less to temper.
This game is great but... 5/5
The leveling system is kinda dull and around the level 13-17 is hard to get main missions done but I love the elder scrolls franchise and I love that they’ve add a game to mobile
Great Game... But too much P2P 4/5
By Libtard Slayer
This game is beautiful and well done. Some of the best mobile combat I have seen. However, it's hard to progress without paying for gems. Chests take too long to open and the rewards for quests need to be more unique.
I won’t let you create an account
Sounds good. Doesn’t work. 1/5
By not mad, but sad
Says compatible with iPhone. Doesn’t work on my iPhone6. Says try on different device. Bethesda, why you do this to me???
This game is really fun you can get better weapons and armor i cant wait for when arena comes out i just hope it’s multiplayer!
Pay to win 1/5
The gameplay wasn't designed to be fun, but to ask for cash. This isn't the incentive system I look for in games. Too bad they took this route, I have played more than 200 hours of Skyrim, but this one is one Skyrim, not even from afar.
Used to be good now it’s trash because micro transactions. 1/5
So for anyone looking for a fun time. Look elsewhere for the first several hours you will have some fun. Then the grind wall hits you full force. Bethesda also has decided to go a Step further than EA. They don’t tell you the full patch notes. Meaning they are actively going against free to play players with nonstop nerfs. While pay to play are getting nonstop buffs. I’m drastically over simplifying but safe to say I used to like this game. And Bethesda used to be my favorite company, now they have turned to the dark side and have become anti consumer. So don’t waste time
Great game 5/5
I have one problem with the gold chest why is it 5 times longer than the silver chest it’s super long because by the time your able to open it you get another 6h chest and you can’t open other chests without gems while that’s going I feel it’s too long and slows gameplay for those of us who can’t sink thousands of dollars into the game I like the game don’t get me wrong it’s hella fun but needs some more adjustment and Bethesda stop this pay to win crap it needs to go away nobody likes it we want a game that can be played at a reasonable pace and get rewarded for it because we don’t have to play the game we don’t have to sink hundreds of hours into it we do because we love the Elder-scrolls series in any of its forms just we don’t like having to pay for legendary items when we should be able to grind them out and get them in reasonable times so pls fix this
Would love to change this 1 to a 5 1/5
I was having an amazing time playing this game. I was really enjoying every aspect of it, even the timed chests and loot crates. If I enjoy a free a game enough, I’ll pay once in a while to give myself a boost and shake it up a bit. I see no foul in this. But I logged on today to find that my character had been completely stripped of all gear with the exception of my sword and torso piece. I have blue purple and green gear that was enchanted and spec’d to my ideal build. Soon after I discovered that my gear was in the buy back section of the smithy and did not have the option to purchase nor did I have any new gold. Bethesda, I spent $20 on the bonus gem box to get my build where it was and now it’s gone. Please do the right thing and rectify this. I really want to give this game 5 stars.
So. Much. Lag. 3/5
I really like this game. It’s really pretty and I find myself opening it a lot. I like what little plot there is and I like building up my town. But there are times when combat is so laggy that it’s pretty much unplayable. Trying to block or shield bash is iffy since I’m not sure if the game will actually raise my shield when I tap the icon. Fights with spellcasters are even worse. I’m playing on an XS so I would expect the hardware to be able to keep up. Please, please do something about this so I can get back to exploring the Abyss.
Almost as greedy as EA 1/5
A polished title, yet bethesda still feeding it’s fans the same dish over and over since the days of morrowind. Only this time, you’re really paying for it. If fans really mattered, they wouldnt deliberately crush their wallets to have a worthwhile gaming experience. -ex bethesda fan
not the same thing 2/5
By yeetus the fetus deletus
so i’m a big elder scrolls fan and have been playing for ever and was rlly excited to see that there was skyrim for mobile but when it downloaded i was a little surprised. first off, i hate the way u walk. it gets rather annoying but ig it’s not that big a deal. second, all u do is just fight the same things in the same places, it’s very repetitive. third, u should be able to actually walk out of ur village and explore, that was a huge part of skyrim to me. fourth, where r the dragons??? i haven’t seen any and it may just be bc i have only played for a day or so but like, it was one of the first scenes in the game consul version. and sixth, the whole chest thing is dumb. like, why can’t u just pick the locks like normal? overall i feel like it’s not even skyrim anymore, it’s a game with the same stuff.
Really surprised 4/5
I’m honestly surprised about how much I like this game! I’ve been really enjoying it. The only gripe I have is that I have accidentally pressed “Open Now” for x amount of gems on the chests multiple times and there is no confirmation screen to spend the gems, so I would just accidentally waste a handful every time.
Sneaky devs 1/5
First: The gameplay is good, graphics are great.
However after it coming to my attention that they took out all forms of endgame grinding and have made the only way of getting endgame gear a paywall, this game doesn’t even deserve a star. Plus everyone who played the game into endgame already has everything and will be at the top anyways. I think they are not only trying to fool us. But trying to fool themselves.
This game IS pay to win at the endgame. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
Extremely disappointed 1/5
Never thought an Elder Scrolls game would be plagued by so many micro-transactions. Later in the game it's so unbalanced that you pretty much have to pay just to stay alive.
I really wanted to love this game Bethesda... 3/5
Then you introduced the cave trolls, and the likes of them practically force you to fork over real world money and gems by the truckload to get any fighting chance of progressing.
To think I actually put real money down to pre-order this game. Not cool Bethesda.
Love the game but only one complaint! 4/5
I like playing this game a lot but lately I’ve been having a couple of problems with being able to use the physical attacks like the special ones. (idk what it’s called.) Basically what will happen is I’ll go to use one of the attacks, in the bottom right hand corner of my screen, but it will start charging up my weapon to do an attack even if I have full stamina. It would be great if you could fix that because I’ve died so many times due to this I’ve lost count!
Buggy cash grab 1/5
I have been playing this game off and on since it first came out but now I don’t even want it on my phone. I decided to use gems to purchase a revive, mainly since I was at the end of a quest, and you know what happened after I hit purchase? Nothing! The game too my gems and didn’t do anything. After a while of being frozen the game lost connection with the server and I had to start from the beginning! You know a game is broken when even the micro-transactions aren’t working.
Lots wrong... 3/5
it has so much potential and a few tweaks is needed it’s not open world the places are all the same just changed every quest and cycles through 3-4 different places the healing is annoying I have to have healing pots to heal or find these stupid things health should regenerate over time - chests need to be able to removed from inventory I have too many missed gold chest bc “chest slots are full” resources are way too uncommon, after you build a certain amount of buildings the prices start to get outrageous needs to be lowered I can’t afford 15 k every time I want to build a new home, also needs to have the characters be able to talk.
Not supported 1/5
By Masonater 3000
I was looking forward to this since it was able to be pre-registered and I get in and it does not support my iPhone 6 Plus what the hell?!
Fix the stamina interface glitch 5/5
Pls fix the problem with the stamina abilities where sometime it won't allow you use your abilities while in horizontal screenmode, the problem goes away when you switch to verticals, I have an iPhone 10 so I don't know if there is the same problem on other phones but it leads to dying many time because I can't use an ability that would've ended the fight
Deleting this game. 3/5
Updated. Deleting this game. After a while, you can’t even do one skull jobs. This is seriously screwed up.
At first, I went like gang busters but then as I leveled more, the quests became almost undoable. With the quest name should be what types of demons you will be fighting for proper weaponry, but there is no way to know until you have, say, a troll, pop out in front of you and you can’t change your weapon. You’re dead. Period! Also, all the things you collect are mostly needed, so trying to sell off things to make room (I’ve upgraded storage) is hard to do because again, most are needed. So even if I let some things go and sell them, I get them back and storage is full again. So I can’t keep them and add other things I need to build up my city. And so, here comes spending for gems so I can boost more storage. Naw.
I’ll keep this game on my iPad for now, but it will be one of those, every so often, type of things that I play.
Seriously, can you add the demons, spiders, trolls, skeletons to the quest name so we know what we are up against prior to doing them? Some quests have the names of what you will be battling in them, but others, like clearing a cave, can have anything and one weapon will not do. At least we could be prepared.
It’s a beautifully visional game and enjoyable, but some tweaks would make it exceptional!
Account login is awful 1/5
Can't remember your password? Click here for an email that never arrives! Maybe your username isn't right! Click here for another email that never arrives! Want a new account instead? Nope! Your email already had an account but we refuse to tell you anything else! Maybe make an account with Facebook? Better remember your Facebook password because the programmers won't let you log in with the Facebook app like every other game out there instead!
Unplayable due to sloppy account log-on programming.
If your on-boarding process is this bad I can only imagine what a hot mess the game itself is. I can't be sure though since the game doesn't seem like it wants me to play it.
Won't run on iOS 10 1/5
I have over 100 apps on my phone ranging from many genres. Half of which are games. I have never come across a game, new or old, that requires iOS 11. So not sure why the developers of this game have made the poor choice of not supporting iOS 10 either.
Terribly Disappointing and Boring 1/5
I was so excited for the release of this title. It had been a huge disappointment to say the least. Gameplay is very linear and monotonous ... in other words incredibly boring. No open world ... pay to win. I expected much better from Bethesda.
Great game 4/5
Great game but every time I play the howling caves quest the game completely signs me out of the app and I cant play that one mission weird?!
i want to see myself 3/5
Eye Candy & A Little Hollow 3/5
By Tilden Thorne
This game has a lot of really fun elements, but it is ultimately a bit empty. To really be worthy of its namesake, it really needs a few things.
First, it really needs Ranged combat. I want to see bows and Ranged spells. The fact that combat has to do this weird glitch to enter into battle (melee only) is just uncomfortable. On that note, it really needs dual wielding as well.
Second, I would really like to see food items that can be picked up and combined to make batter types of food with recipes and the like (as the older games did).
Third, why can we not enter the buildings in our towns? I mean really?! That is a major portion of the older games. On that note, we should be able to build an inn.
Fourth, the game is pseudo-online, so why not allow friends to be able to visit our towns? Which could provide a reason for an inn. That could add a really fun social aspect to the game. Drinking at an inn with friends sounds like a good time when fighting is not on the agenda. Maybe even allow the ability to pay friends to complete quests for us if it helped... Or ask them to join us on a quest. Yes, I know the other games were single player, but this is a new platform and some new ways to adventure would be really nice!
Lastly, this game missed big on resource creation as a method of making the game social. If the game allowed people to create more resources and trade them with players who visit our towns, there is an instant whole other layer of the game that could really add something. Adding something like this could really give the game a reason to be “online”. As it stands now, this game only uses the internet to monitor the game itself. Sure, there is an arena, but I have not been able to experience it yet, and just adding PvP seems a bit dull and kind of like an afterthought.
I like this game for what it is, but it has so much unfulfilled potential that it is almost sad to see it sitting there out of reach. I hope, as development continues, that they add more depth. I doubt any of my suggestions will be added, but I hope they add something more than what is. This game could be a “killer app” if it implemented more facets... But, right now... It is just a good way to waste some time.
Awful Game Mechanics 1/5
I’ve been playing since launch and the game has yet to improve (besides the chest timers). After level 25 the game becomes terribly unbalanced. One spell from a caster will kill you on a one-skull quest. The hotkeys for physical and spell actions randomly don’t work. The quests are tiresome and repetitive.
While it’s not Skyrim I’m enjoying this game! It’s simple and reminds me of playing morrowind, the graphics are roughly the same. It’s amazing that I have this on my phone! It’s got an easy save system so I can easily switch tasks. It’s not something you want to sit and play for hours like Skyrim, it’s a casual storyline and I don’t mind waiting for chests, it makes me feel like I’m lock picking them 😂
Current Probs - Combat, Timing 1/5
By Captain Belmont
Been playing it since it dropped. Want to give 4/5 minimum. Great things here.
Devs current problem: the lowest and easiest quests are set to an insane difficulty. I’m running 1 skull jobs and quests still at lvl 13, with upgrades gear and weapons - and goblins are killing me in two hits! Before the last patch update, they were fine. Not the only enemy - almost all enemies under three skulls are powered at a four plus skull level curve, you essentially have to pay for gems to revive yourself because you’ll die so quickly.
Bethesda disappoints again.. 1/5
This is yet another pay to win game. If you want to progress in this game, you’ll have to pay micro-transactions.
yOu cAN pLaY WhEn wE tElL yOu YoU cAn! 2/5
By xxSUPER ELMOxx
yOu cAN pLaY WhEn wE tElL yOu YoU cAn!
Fun but in dev 3/5
Leveling is ok until you encounter trolls. I’ve easily beaten levels at 4 skull difficulty, but then have a 1 skull difficulty with self-healing trolls I can’t defeat. Difficulty ratings are currently broken in my opinion.
So Awesome! 5/5
This game is great. I love how there are no ads and if you don’t want to spend money you totally don’t have to! The customization is awesome and the stories in the quests are way cool! I love how the fighting is and the movement as well, it’s nice to be able to switch between the tap and move and the joysticks. Super fun! The only things I could think of that would be way awesome for the future, would be when it’s night time when you’re playing it’s night time in the game or something similar to that maybe? That would take a long time to do I can imagine but i feel like it would be way cool! The other thing is to be able to have bows somehow would be super cool! All in all, super fun game and love the story and all the different things you can do. Thank you!
Countdown Timers Forever 2/5
If you enjoy staring at endless countdown timers, you may enjoy this game more than I.
