Review excerpt
"At last! An RPG done right. From Bethesda this Christmas comes The Elder Scrolls: daggerfall, which is the sequel to The Elder Scrolls: Arena. For way to long RPGs have clung to antiquated design conventions. Nobody seemed prepared to try anything really new, while alleged breakthroughs like Stonekeep were just more of it in one big and boring game." - PC Powerplay (1996)
