Amazing Game!

I am so glad this game popped up in ads online a few weeks ago. I have always been a huge fan of the computer and Xbox Elder Scrolls series. I thought since it was mobile that it may be a disappointment, BUT I absolutely love it. Amazing graphics for mobile, a nice storyline, it’s just like the other versions. I just defeated the Lich king or whatever and saved my city. I hope something new comes up in the storyline soon as now I only have small side mission quests to do from the board, which is completely repetitive. Perhaps when I fill up more empty slots in my city, more quests will pop up. We will see. People who complain about this being a p2p game are very impatient and/or unknowledgable. I am level 36 and for the most part getting there was f2p and without difficulty. I got some revival scrolls in the beginning levels, but that was with gems given to me in the game for free. Eventually I thought I might need a lot of gems or something later on and bought a cheat at a great deal with gems and revival scrolls that was 100 usd for only 20 usd. And guess what? I still haven’t even used those gems yet because it has so far been unnecessary. And only a handful of those scrolls which also one don’t really need although convenient. This is practically pretty much a f2p game. Those who complain it isn’t are probably (hopefully) kids who are impatient or don’t study all the parts to the game to see how to accomplish without paying.

Perfect for mobile

I've played this for awhile now. I also read all the reviews where people are saying is boring or hard around level 9. Here's the deal, this game is awesome if played correctly I'm currently level 24, with my town about level 7 ( just a bit under ), I don't know if people are not building their towns up, but that actually expands the game, brings in new missions, upgrading shops gives better options to craft or buy with in game currency. Early on when things are easy upgrade your inventory slots and chest capacity with the free premium gems they give you ( I get a lot free fighting in the dungeons) I have over 700 now, never bought anything. Time your chest timers around your work day, open gold while you sleep, never run into waiting issues. As far as combat and complaining about dying, here's a tip get the healing dodge and upgrade it, choose your talents and perks wisely, craft health absorbing armor and jewelry, with the right loadout, and proper potion planning, no quest is too difficult, the challenging ones are harder because they're supposed to be, you'll have a wonderful feeling of accomplishment when they drop a free legendary chest on you.
I'm level 24, all eleven gear, rings and necklace, usually have 15-20 various chests to cycle through, over 700 premium gems saved up from free drops, haven't spent a dime of real life currency.
Play smart play often, this is an unbelievable free offering from the elder scrolls franchise!!!!

Fantastic, fantastic!!!

I played for a month before writing this review because I understand it is still a beta release, Blades, in my opinion is by far the best game on a cellphone and trust me that I should be a critic I have played and deleted thousands of games.
With all that being said Blades has amazing graphics that I would expect on a console, the gameplay is amazingly polished especially because you can tell they are improving it daily, when I first started Blades would shut down or freeze every so often (once a day) and now I cannot remember the last time that has happened.
The pace of the game seems perfect to me as some days I don’t have as much time I will open the treasure chests and construct new buildings in my city and on the days I want to grind for gold, material or weapons etc etc... Blades surely lets me decide my own pace.
I believe Bethesda is by far the best game developing company ever to make games so this is not a impartial review, I already knew I would love this game as I have from everything they have ever released.
So far the only thing I would like added to Blades is the ability to change between first person and third person as so many of Bethesda games have done in the past, it is amazing that this game is free because I dropped many other games off of my phone, Blades is all I need. Thank you Bethesda and also a thanks goes out to whoever read this book I just wrote.
