    I'm sorry, but this is a horrible expansion. I love Morrowind, and played it through twice by itself before trying the expansions, but the quality of each seems to be exponentially poorer than the last. Tribunal was ok (and that's all it was), but Bloodmoon is outright rotten. Almost everything about it is a disappointment...the new monsters (especially the riders) are boring I'm sorry, but this is a horrible expansion. I love Morrowind, and played it through twice by itself before trying the expansions, but the quality of each seems to be exponentially poorer than the last. Tribunal was ok (and that's all it was), but Bloodmoon is outright rotten. Almost everything about it is a disappointment...the new monsters (especially the riders) are boring and incredibly amateurish, the storyline is short and weak, the environment is completely depressing from the minute you set foot in the new area, and the performance is a joke (especially with weather, as already stated). As if that wasn't enough, Bloodmoon also takes the most unbearably annoying Morrowind quests - escorting, and completely floods the game with them (and no, the AI has not been improved). Throw in the very contrived "werewolf" experience, weak scripting, and on and on, and honestly, you have something that is barely at the level of quality of a free fan-made add-on. It's shocking and disappointing, coming from Bethesda. Save your money and time, and ignore this horrible money-grab. It'll ruin your Morrowind experience, make you lose your respect for Bethesda's quality and integrity, and take an unreasonable bite out of your wallet to boot. If you feel you MUST have every Morrowind expansion, at least do yourself a favor and wait until it's in the bargain bin (though frankly it isn't worth even that). Unbelievably disappointing. Expand

  1. Maybe Bloodmoon could have been down as a free, or low cost, download, but the added value of the werewolf alone make the twenty dollar cost seem like a bargain.

    Bloodmoon also adds werewolves and though they're formidable opponents, the real attraction here is that you can actually become a werewolf yourself.

    Living as a werewolf is still pretty cool. You can inflict serious damage with those claws, leap amazing distances, and take on more enemies than would be possible in your human form. [Sept 2003, p.74]
