Strap on your armor, grab your weapons, and get ready for battle. Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is the latest expansion in a combat-heavy fantasy world that offers stunning vistas that are occasionally disrupted by texture breakdowns. Allowing players to take on the roles of a vampire or werewolf (yes, eating your fallen victims to maintain the werewolf form is nasty), solve mysteries, search for treasure, level up, and more. The storyline does evolve and carry players through the world, and the questlines are entertaining, unless you are running them with multiple character classes, at which point they become predictable and redundant.

But what Greymoor does provide is high adventure in a world that requires a lot of travel time, its share of creepiness, some great challenges and a lot of visual eye candy. The music and voice acting are nice supports to the visuals. And, to its credit, the world is big enough to allow players to level up in different ways to experience the areas of the world without having to repeat questlines to the point of apathy. Some of the visual elements are repetitive (no matter how slowly you go into a body of water, there's seemingly always a huge 'cannonball' splash), and there's a lot less flexibility in exploring the world than what you'd expect from such a large scale adventure.. But what makes Greymoor worth the time invested are the story arcs. They are enjoyable, and keep you engaged as you roam the map accomplishing your tasks. While there are some stumbles, mainly in the tech department, and some repetitive play, Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor is still one of those titles that wil appeal for fans of the franchise.
