8

The Elder Scrolls sequel Daggerfall is a great follow-up to the original. The sequel boasts a world packed full of castles, villages, and tombs. Fans of Elder Scrolls Arena should expect to lose hours to this addictive and classic RPG.

Devote hours and save your kingdom

Daggerfall separates itself from other RPGs with its open-world format.

Daggerfall, first released in 1996, is still sucking hours upon hours from gamers. Despite the controls feeling a little outdated Daggerfall presents unparalleled gameplay. The first quest requires you to uncover the secrets of the King’s death. Basic inventory and a simple quest is all you get. The challenge requires an eye for solving mysteries.

Daggerfall separates itself from other RPGs with its open-world layout. You can spend hours discovering what happened to the King and saving the kingdom. With six potential endings to the story available, you’re given a lot of freedom. Daggerfall allows you to make your path and story. Options are endless, and very entertaining.

Although there is no multiplayer co-op, Daggerfall is not about playing with friends. You find partners, enemies, and rivals within the game itself. Each character reacts to the actions you take.

Fighting your foes takes some time to come to grips with. The controls can be clunky. Mastering this is less of an issue. You decide to help villagers, or terrorize them by becoming a werewolf. The gameplay is in-depth and runs in real-time. This is what makes Daggerfall’s gameplay so immersive.

Skills such as lockpicking, and pickpocketing makes it easy to get rich quick. Daggerfall gives players everything they want in an RPG. Spend some time getting to know the controls, it’s worth it!

Where can you run this program?

Available for PC only. Daggerfall was first developed for MS-DOS, so expect a few bugs when running on Windows 7 or 10.

Is there a better alternative?

No. There are modern RPGs out there with better controls, and silkier graphics, but the classic storyline, and gameplay make Daggerfall number one for an absorbing RPG experience.

Our take

Daggerfall broke the mould when it was first released. It continues to set the bar high for RPGs. Gameplay and variety is plentiful. You will love it, play it, and play it again.

Should you download it?

Yes, there is no better option for a classic storyline. Endless potential routes make this game an unequalled success almost impossible to put down. You could play Daggerfall, and experience unlimited outcomes every time you play it. Daggerfall will keep you interested for much longer than other games of its era.
