Those used to Skyrim might find the learning curve a bit steep, but it you can overcome the retroness, this game is really tons of fun. Graphics are very impressive for their day, and the music is top notch, even by today's standards. Just like any other TES game, the multitude of different playstyles are really what make the game what it is. Expand

While not as large asThe Elder Scrolls series has always been known for its size, depth and story and Morrowind is no stranger to this. While not as large as Daggerfall, Morrowind makes up for it by having an engaging and deep story that keeps you entertained long after it has ended. Morrowind puts you in the roll of a Prisoner as they reach Seyda Neen and attempt to start their new life. You are given a blank slate; a way to reforge your new life whether it's a murderous assassin or honorable paladin, the only limited parts to Morrowind is your imagination. Morrowind isn't like typical RPGs where you pick a role and are limited based on that role (Fighter, Cleric, etc). Morrowind allows you the freedom to be whatever you wish. During is time, Morrowind pushed even the most powerful hardware and to this day looks alien and mysterious. Morrowind continues to live on through the efforts of talented modders and fans alike. It is my opinion that Morrowind catches all magic and depth of every Elder Scrolls title and is the best Elder Scrolls title yet. Expand

    This was my favorite game until the Witcher 2 came out in 2011. And for the most part, Morrowind has the best gameplay I’ve ever experiencedThis was my favorite game until the Witcher 2 came out in 2011. And for the most part, Morrowind has the best gameplay I’ve ever experienced in the video game. But unfortunately, not everyone will agree with me. This is because Morrowind has very complicated gameplay mechanics. It’s basically a small step simpler than a pen-and-paper RPG. Skyrim may have been dumbed down a little to attract a wider audience, but that was done flawlessly and appealed to everyone. I, however, miss the old features that were cut out from the franchise, like the Mysticism school of magic, or the large variety of combat skills, like Spears and Hand-to-Hand. I enjoyed planning out which skills to improve before I level up and maximize my attribute multipliers. The story about the Nerevarine Prophesy and how the blight pandemic was swallowing the Morrowind province whole was compelling and sensationally narrated. I often found myself lost reading about Morrowind’s history. The game had more factions than there were in New Vegas, and the rivalries between these factions add more excitement to the game. And finally, Morrowind’s DLCs are magnificent and are perhaps the best expansions I’ve played in a video game. I’ve clocked hundreds and hundreds of hours into my Xbox version of Morrowind, and the modding community fixes and enhances the PC version for an even better experience. An Elder Scrolls fan must pick this up immediately, but any RPG fan should direct their attention to my personal game of the decade. Expand
