First non turn-based CRPG game I ever enjoyed, and played it for hours. Sound effects were excellent, first time I encountered a vampire I nearly jumped out of my seat before I even saw it. IMO rendered nearly unplayable in contrast to Daggerfall which was far better, despite the slightly smaller scope of the game and prevalent bugs. Limited continuity in the huge scope of the world (pretty sure it is impossible to walk from one town to the next etc) limited immersion, honestly I think it was simply too ambitious for it′s time. Other then that, an awesome dungeon crawler, and amazing what they were able to do without a real 3-D engine.

If you want to play this game, I suggest you go to this download:

It contains all the patches (including the Special Edition), fixes the sound problem and as soon as you are done installing it, you can play right away.

FYI: By left-clicking and moving the mouse, you swing your sword and the arrow keys move your character.

Awesome, perhaps even revolutional game, but after "few" (perhaps 40) gaming hours you will find that the big computer generated world is stereotypical, so the number of fun is not adequate to the game space. The game was hard to run even on the old computers in his time... but still it has been one of the best games.

    the good old bugger scrolls….

    if you can get past the terrible bugs, the fact that sometimes you′ll have to let go some quests you can′t finish, then this is a great game. honestly, do the main quest, and that′ll be okay. less pain in the ass….

  7. hameed says:

    Which file do I run? This is the first game of this type that I have ever tried, and the dosbox tutorial I read said to read the documentation that came with the game, but the readme i found in the zip didn′t have the information.

  8. Bardman says:

    Any other games like this? Undercroft is Somewhat similar, but the story is tiny compared to Arena.

  9. Chesco says:

    Skyrim sucks in comparison to the rest of the series of TES. Simple as that. (IMO!)

  12. Herr Neuhaus says:

    @Mmike If you′re using DOSBox, turn your CPU cycles up. That should fix the lag problem.
