This attempt at the "adventure series" from the Elder Scrolls universe is much more polished and fun to play. There appear to be more adventure elements than in previous ES games, which some will definitely find appealing. For those of you interested in learning more about the history of this spectacular series, pick up this game.
Redguard takes place in the world of Tamriel, just like the other games in the Elder Scroll series, although this one takes place 400 years prior to the other games. You play as Cyrus, who is one of the most interesting and complex main characters I've ever encountered in an adventure game. He was born in the country of Hammerfell, a nation of proud and noble people called Redguards.
