Yes, they do. They're all pretty much identical.

Lol this is terrible. How can anyone be proud of the 30 over dungeons 100 over variations. Copy paste ad nauseam. Go check Everquest for how to do a proper dungeon. Truly sad state.

 

I agree with the others the social score is way too high.

 

That's modular development and it should be said that these dungeons make use of different textures and props. So, in the end you might notice that the dungeon uses a similar basic construction, but due to different plants, lights, chest-types and so on being placed, the dungeons still look kind of unique.

 

Keeping in mind that the real dungeons like Spindleclutch very much look completely handcrafted, I can live with the fact that the smaller public dungeons are not.

fair review bill.


ive managed to finish the main story at level 46 (DK) with some purples, and now i managed to open up the other faction zones...alot todo in pve.


its not innovative, but its an  heavy lore mmo with volumes  and volumes of story driven quests. hoping this dosent phase out- to many demands from the masses..


'chat bubbles'?...really???

You don't finish the main story until 50 ;)

Nicely written and spot on. Also holy shit the people admitting they never played the game but would have rated it lower based on metacritic and the forum feedback here? What the actual...

We ALL have to remember that this is HIS review, we need to respect that. Also we all know that there are fanbois for every game and they will defend their game and thats what they are suppose to do and reason doesnt apply in the defense. What I do not like is a Fanboi of one game bashing another game and complaing about certain features or lack there off when THEIR game is in fact lacking the same thing or even worse doesnt have it.

So defend your game but stop shiting bricks on other games plz, just love your game and stop the hate on a game that is not your ESO

You would think that's true, however even if there are props and NPCs in different locations you'd think it'd stray away from looking identical. I personally saw a lot of repetitiveness throughout the solo dungeons. It's not that bad but I wish they put more effort into the solo dungeon system.

For the average MMORPG's rankings when Majors are involved, this score is almost right and the written review itself is fairly honest but for the Social aspect which is really out of touch. If you take that away, you have a 7.2-7.4 which imho is the right score for TESO.


TESO is a honest but bland themepark MMO which offers some interesting and enjoyable variations and something more than its share with bugs, compromises and conservative approach. So It's right and legitimate to like and the other way round. Nothing less and nothing more.

Look, the guy OBVIOUSLY hasn't played much of the game. This is arguably ( I argue it. ) the most unnaceptable launch in video game history. Bill, this is the first time I have really disagreed with you, but I'm starting to think you and this whole site are SHILL's by giving what is a nearly unplayable game a 7.9...

FYI, and no.. not all of them LOOK exactly the same.  Some do have different textures and props... but effectively they are ALL the same.  Think about a Botter.  How easy is it to code for a dungeon when you have 20+ that are the EXACT same layouts?

I know rehashed items aren't new.  They've been around.  Hell quite a few times in WoW I was running around and was like "Huh.. this cave looks remarkably like..." (but those were generic caves literally a world away from the other and maybe only recycled a time or two.. not 20)

And since it has had a couple of patches, I decided to re-install lastnight to give it one last hurrah (with my 5 days of extra time) to genuinely try one more time to get past the bug-wall that I hit.

Ultimately, I just want a game that's fun to play.  That's it.  Skyrim had bugs and most were HILARIOUS.  Bugs I take in swing but when I'm stopped by them... well, that's not fun.  And this copy/pasting of dungeons thing needs to be pointed out because it's out there.  It's scary.  These are what developers THINK is ok.

I honestly got so bored with these "solo dungeons" that I let my subscription run out without renewing.  They have zero personality to them.  They all look like they should be different wings of the same dungeon.  Zenimax tried too hard to give tons of dungeons, instead of more intimate, complex dungeons that were created specifically for group play.  ESO is an MMO trying to be a singleplayer experience.  It's an oxymoron, and it translates into a stale, silent experience online.  People rarely interact (zone chat is as awful as ever), and when they do it's almost like Orcs grunting at one another.  One word messages like "bugged?" and "thx" are the most common chat messages between players.

 

I'm not sure when game developers lost touch with the fact that the greatest determining factor for fun in multiplayer RPGs was the social aspect, but they need to rediscover it.  These solo MMOs do nothing to encourage a community to interact and work together.  The game might look great; it might have novel ideas, but if I feel like everyone is playing a singleplayer game with others just ghosting by without any real need to interact with them, I'm not sticking around.

For goodness sake just stop with the everybody must be Shill's .. just because they don't conform to what you like or don't like.

Its disgusting , Bill Murphy has given " His " ( notice I highlighted the word his to help you understand ) honest opinion of the game .. don't like it ? ... then move on and do something else.

SOE tried cookie cutter designs with Lost Dungeons of Norrath in 2003 -- it wasn't ok then and its not ok now

I agree with most of what is said in this article. The game is great, very fun, and highly addictive, but it's certainly not perfect. Looking forward to seeing what they put out in the coming years!

Currently Playing: ESO,FFXIV, various betas
Have played: You name it.

Good write up and review. I am enjoying the game but I would rate the game a little lower, maybe around 7.4 or 7.5. I would go lower on Longevity, Polish and Social.

Ooo if thats the open world dungeons not a huge deal, I thought that was their main dungeons for teaming lol. Over 100 open world dungeons IMO even with similar lay out and different windows dressings should be applauded. Most MMOs dont even take the time to make 1 open world dungeon.

The longevity and social scores for this review are lawlworthy.

Fair review, I think a few of the negative points will be fixed with time, like many MMOs I expect to see a re-review after 1-2 years if enough improvements and content are made/added.

Longevity 9 ? 

That MUST be a typo

 

Social 8 ?

You can't even group with someone to HELP them on a quest you've completed yourself ! Or a team where every member has to solve the puzzle individually??  What?

 

Here's a more realistic score:

AESTHETICS – 8

INNOVATION - 7

POLISH - 6

LONGEVITY - 7

SOCIAL - 7

VALUE - 7

 70% final score

And 70% would be in line with "a couple of points lower" than metacritic.

Just saying.

"You done scored it too high"

 

 

It's his opinion and one that aligns a bit more with my experience.

my opinion:

AESTHETICS – 8

INNOVATION - 6

POLISH - 5

LONGEVITY - 9

SOCIAL - 8

VALUE - 8

But that only raises the "total score" to 7.33

So my conclusion is  that the game, for some, is greater or lesser than the sum of its parts.

I can see myself playing this for quite a long time. I also have been more social with people I meet in the world but I suspect that some people, unless forced to group, just don't know how to do this.

Fair review. I haven't seen any bots or bugged quests lately. I believe some of the posters haven't played the game recently.

That said, the game does have a mature feel. I can see how it doesn't appeal to the young gamer. That's both a good and bad thing.
