This game still has like 6 more months in dev, the graphics are bad cause its recorded, and this game will get much better i belive it is going to be a very good game in mmo and single player aspects.The point is dont get too disapointed or you will be very VERY suprised when the game finally comes out.

All of you criticizing this should note that you are watching footage of a game under NDA clearly in an incomplete area of the game.. All feed back from PAX.. and the focus groups (Guildleaders/MMO veterans) that zenimax invited had nothing but positive feed back, because they were playing areas of the game in which Zenimax had completed.. judging the whole game by what you see in a leaked video, that should of never been leaked as this person is under NDA is completely stupid.. The first person seen in this video should not be taken as final product.. Zenimax has not yet confirmed completion of it, as for the graphics seen in this video..  this person is playing on the low settings, and is using a terrible recording software.. Also there are probably missing textures not yet added into the game.  I'm not a fan boy.. i'm simply defending a game that is getting bad rep by footage of an incomplete area of the game while the game was under NDA, and don't want people to assume that this is the final version of ESO.

Im hoping this is not what the game will look like (there are many MMOs out there with much smaller budgets some even free to play with better graphics then this). But like some people are saying if this is very old footage there is still a chance the game could turn out good.

It's important to realize a few things here.


    [*]This is still a CLOSED beta version of the game. This isn't even widely available to test yet, much less nearing a "shelf build."
    [*]This is a low quality video; I believe it's 480p. You can't really make any conclusions about the graphics from this kind of recording.
    [*]This is going to be an MMO, not Skyrim Online.
    [/list]

    With that said, people also need to realize that there isn't going to be a major re-work of the game/graphics engine at this point. Beta versions are generally for fixing bugs, not major changes in developmental direction.

     

    People need to temper their expectations for this game while realizing you really can't draw a whole lot from this video.

Oh no... This was so disappointing.No, not because of the graphics, they were fine assuming that the video quality was bad etc. I have no doubts about the graphics, although I do dislike the cartoony character models.But for one...Why is all the text bright yellow and white and bold (=ugly)? That's not immersive at all... I'm glad you're able to turn off the NPC names, which I definitely don't want floating over their heads in bright green and red, it seriously made me cry. But please try to make it at least look like Skyrim...Also some gameplay mechanics are pretty bad still, I really had higher expectations for the combat but I'm hoping they'll improve it before the final release.Also, the questing wasn't immersive at all either. We didn't need handholding in Skyrim (although there was plenty) and we wont need in an mmorpg. And why were the critters glowing? We don't need them to glow, or even be that visible. We'll kill them if we notice them, we don't NEED to notice them. The yellow glow looks so bad.Also it saddens me that you can't attack NPCs... :(And I want to see 3d versions of items that I'm buying etc.And I want to be able to lift objects.And I don't need to see the experience from discovering places in the middle of my screen...Lots of negativity so here's something I did like...The character customization so far. Of course I'd like more options but at least it's more variety than something like WoW. And I loved the naming rules and ability to give two names!

1. Some of the text was a bit of an eyesore, but they need some way to distinguish between netural NPC's, NPC's that are aggressive no matter what, and NPC's that you can't attack in an MMO. The colors didn't bother me, but maybe they can tone down the hues a bit or give the player an option to do so.

 

2. I wasn't that impressed with the combat, but this is a starter area of the game so it's not like what you'll be doing after you start getting items and leaving the area.

 

3. As far as questing goes, again, this is a starter area of the game so the quests seem to be just very simple stuff. Although I don't expect the quests to be as great as they were in Skyrim (generally speaking), as that is a single player game, I still expect them to be better than the beginning quest.

 

4. It's an MMO. You might be able to kill NPC's if you go into enemy territory though. Maybe?

 

5. I prefer to know what I get from discovering a place. It'll probably be customizable though.

Please watch the first part of the video. Ultra settings.

I have played dozens of Betas and the graphics never really change, just the gameplay. This game looks like Vanguard from like 2007

I'm actually impressed, the character models and customization are impressive and will probably look awesome on release. Gameplay looks good. I wasn't expecting there to be voicework too. Excited, not sure why everyone is so upset. Were you expecting this early beta to look like f-ing Skyrim on max PC graphics or something?

My experiences as well.

 

The newer HD video already makes it look better though. Obviously the graphics aren't unbelievable, but anyone who thought that a legitimate Skyrim look was going to be possible with an MMO was going to be disappointed regardless.

 

It really doesn't look as bad as people are making it out to be.

Was I the only one that realised that the Npc's mouths were not moving? Of course the damn graphics aren't finished! A Beta is a rough draft of the game. There will be plenty of more detail, etc. that will be added as some of you have already realised. In my opinion the game looks great and the things that I found missing have probably already been brought up by the Beta testers. I for one am exited for this MMO. Also yes I am a fanboy for The TES series. Fuck you <3
