: : : : : The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard


The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is an action-adventure game developed and published by Bethesda Softworks with an engine and game play style similar to that of the Tomb Raider games, set in the world of Nirn. The game takes place in Tamriel in the year 864 of the Second Era, some 400 years prior to the events of Arena and the rest of the series. The story is about Cyrus, a courageous Redguard, who arrives on the island of Stros M'kai in order to find his missing sister, and subsequently finds himself in the middle of political intrigue. Cyrus is the protagonist but not just any innocent mercenary as the player will learn.


The best way way to decsribe the gameplay would be to compare it to Tomb Raider 1. The game was developed and released before the Tomb Raider games and shares no relation but the comparison is just. The play can run jump and attack the enemies whilst traversing over harsh terrain and through trapped caves and dungeons. The swordplay in this game is similar to play of the Prince of Persia games where the duelists will stand-off in a kind of fencing match. The play can defend, dodge and use different attacks to defeat the opponent as well as using various potions to aid them in battle.
