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

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

The story line is just amazing and keeps you hooked from beginning to end. Sure, the combat system is a little dull and clunky, but there's mods to fix that and many other things. Many people have complained about the npcs just standing around doing nothing, as with Oblivion they run on a schedule. Well, a mod called, "Living Cities of Vvardenfell fixes that." Actually, with the right mods running, Morrowind can look and play better than Oblivion any day. And the factions are great, the side quests are all fun. In Oblivion, you don't even need to run out and find your quest target; they tell you where it's at! Not in Morrowind. With most quests, they give you a hint (if you're lucky) and it's your job to find the place, person, etc., which could take days or weeks mind you and that to me is fun and exciting. See, with Oblivion's fast travel system to most quests, it took the fun out of exploration and discovery. This is what I absolutely love about Morrowind. You just never know what might happen, what you might run into, or how long it may take you to complete your goal. It's just fantastic. Also, as I mentioned in my Oblivion review, the npcs in Morrowind are so colorful and alive. They talk about everything and comment on just about everything, from the weather, a disease you may have contracted, or if your character decided to wear his/her birthday suit out that day. They even shoot off random comments and crack jokes out of the blue. First time I visited Solstheim and heard an Imperial guard making a joke about the cold, no sun, and ugly women, I nearly fell off my chair I was laughing so hard. I've nothing negative to say about this game. 10/10. Expand
