    "Great 3D RPG classic"

    May 15, 2011  |   By SparcMan

    Version: The Elder Scrolls: Chapter II: Daggerfall 1.0

    Pros

    Enormous game world. Freedom to follow main quest or numerous side-quests as you choose. Gold money has weight and banks can be used to "lighten your load" Tons of equipment, npc's, factions, books, dungeons, ect.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of unfixed bugs. Many can be fixed with workarounds and unofficial patches, but this often involves using cheats and extra install work.

    Summary

    Some other notables that could be pro or con depending on your point of view: In-game nudity; yes it's quite pixelated due to the age of the game, but it's even on the character equip screen. Slow leveling; you may or may not like to take a long time to level a character, but depending on the character's primary skills, it can take weeks or months of in-game time to reach the next level.

    All in all, a great game that, to me, is the first game in The Elder Scrolls series. Due to bugs. may not appeal to someone that didn't play the game when it was new, but it's a fun game to play.

    "Big. Immersive. Impressive. No eye candy just gameplay."

    February 12, 2011  |   By jeremy.jedi95

    Version: The Elder Scrolls: Chapter II: Daggerfall 1.0

    Pros

    One of the biggest and best RPGs I've ever played. the game world is immense and you'd get lost playing. combat is fun and so is dungeon crawling. freedom is everywhere, and the game is just so classic and classy.

    Cons

    either need an old PC (e.g. win9k or dos) to play or else you'll need a relatively powerful PC to make it run on DosBOX. Good thing I have that big old HP Pavillion win98.

    "Best in the series in my opinion."

    January 22, 2011  |   By TheRetroZombie

    Version: The Elder Scrolls: Chapter II: Daggerfall 1.0

    Pros

    A great advancement for the series since Arena. Better controls & graphics and it doesn't try to leave you off track like Arena. Many places to explore in a 60,000 square mile world.

    Cons

    Requires DOSbx (DOS emulator). Environment can be repetitive. Problems trying to install on DOSbox.

    Summary

    People who are complaing: This game requires a DOS emulator or it won't run. It can be difficult to use but you'll have to go search around for help instead of whining about it. Though I won't lie it is kinda complicating to install this game by typing in DOS codes.

    "Using XP - Won't load"

    September 13, 2009  |   By yeouiju

    Version: The Elder Scrolls: Chapter II: Daggerfall 1.0

    Pros

    Was, what I believe, one of the greatest games of all time! Now if it would only load!

    Cons

    Won't load in windows xp. Tried installer but wont go through. Only thing that loads correctly is the sound setup utility.

    Summary

    Needs to have some sort of XP patch or update to allow installer to work correctly. Otherwise, don't bother downloading this file.
