New player’s perspective of Redguard

Content of the article: "New player’s perspective of Redguard"

Hey all, I recently made a post on here asking about the timeline of the games, and decided to play through the games in their chronological order, except Online which will be last since it's still going on. I've beaten Oblivion pretty recently (It led me down this rabbit hole) and a little of Skyrim but that's the only Elder Scrolls experience I have. But I kinda want to talk about Redguard, and how it does…exist.

Redguard is one of the weirdest games I've ever played. There's a lot I love about it, I love the idea of Cyrus in general, he's just really cool and listening to his quips always put a smile on my face. I also love the location, it kind of gave me some Aladdin vibes, which was pretty fun. I love the general concept of the game, had it been made today I feel like it would be really fun. I even like the really old textures and graphics, which have just a really neat charm to them, I can't say I'm nostalgic for it, since I'm only 22, but something about it just feels pleasant, I don't know. I also like most of the voices, Cyrus has a really cool voice, and I think I've heard him in Oblivion, so it's kinda cool they brought his voice actor back for that. I also love seeing a side of the empire I haven't really seen before. I've only ever played Oblivion and Skyrim, so the empire doesn't seem to be that much of a bad guy in those games, but here, man screw the empire. And while there isn't a lot of music, I like the music in the game that did get.

That said, everything else about the game, is actually kind of awful. A lot of the dungeons felt like they dragged on a bit too long, I felt like combat itself was incredibly picky, either I'd kill something really quickly, or it just wouldn't take damage. Where this really got to be a problem was with the second to last boss (I won't say it because spoilers but you know) I killed in like, 2 minutes, incredibly faster than any random mob from a dungeon. The controls don't feel good either, but I attribute that mostly to age, I think.

On a side note: Anybody have any build recommendations for Arena? I'm thinking Breton Battlemage sounds cool, but I kinda want to branch out since that's what I always am in Oblivion and Skyrim.
