Unlike many other RPGs for mobile devices, the game is based on a rich and in-depth lore, so the environment will much enjoyable. If you are familiar with the background story of the Elder Scrolls universe, the Blades should be a fun to play. One issue about this game is the repetitiveness of the environments and experience. However, it is still fun to play. It should be nice to play in short spurts, although it tends to drag in longer sessions when you are doing multiple sessions. However, if you are tired fighting skeletons and giant spiders, you can try the Arena mode. In this mode, you will challenge other players and you need to master the art of blocking. Because the Elder Scrolls: Blade is an always-online game, it should take no time to find other players.
Obviously, you won’t get an authentic experience of Elder Scrolls, but it is still an enjoyable casual mobile spin-off. Compared to other free to play RPGs titles, this game shouldn’t be the worst thing that you can install to your device.
