The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is a third-person action/adventure set in the world of Bethesda‘s famous The Elder Scrolls series. It was released in 1998 for the PC, running under MS-DOS.
Compared to other Elder Scrolls games, Redguard is something of an anomaly. For starters: you play as a set character, rather than one you generate (and name) yourself. The game itself is also much more simple in nature than Morrowind, Oblivion or Skyrim.
Redguard utilises a maritime/swashbuckling type scenario, and features real-time sword-fighting and action. There’s even an element of platforming in the game, although it’s not particularly good.
You can still buy and play Redguard now, thanks to websites like GOG.com. It’s not a bad game – just very simple. As long as you don’t expect too much out of it, you should find it enjoyable.
