- Summary: An epic, open-ended single-player game where you create and play any kind of character you can imagine. Be the noble hero embarking on an epic quest, or an insidious thief rising to leadership of his guild. Be a malevolent sorcerer developing the ultimate spell of destruction, or a reverent healer searching for the cure to a plague. Your actions define your character, and your gameplay changes and evolves in response to your actions. Confront the assassins' guild, and they take out a contract on you. Impress them, and they try to recruit you instead. No two sagas are the same in the world of Morrowind. [Bethesda Softworks]… Expand
Mar 11, 2011Fantastic. Best Action-RPG I've ever played. Story was intricate and there was seemingly no limit to where you could explore. The variety of weapons is nice. I played this game long before oblivion, and I'm disappointed to see that oblivion didn't have spears or throwing weapons.… Expand
Jan 8, 2012My favourite game of all time. It took me a while to get into it, because it is so confusing at first, but well worth it. I enjoyed being part of the guilds much more than in Oblivion and Skyrim because: foremost that you had to be a certain skill level to rise the ranks, secondly that it had ranks at all (Skyrim), and thirdly because of the long time you spent with the guild made you more loyal to them, and your guildmates.… Expand
Jun 8, 2013Game offers large variety of armor and weapons, huge load of different gameplay aspects and a large island to explore. Some people consider the ''must make'' choices as cons for the game, but I prefer them as replay value. The DLC's add nice touch and the modding community keeps the game still very alive.… Expand
Oct 10, 2010Morrowind is for passionate gamers who like the idea of deep role play. If you were to feel proud when you have served a faction or ordinary citizen, confronted and destroyed evil deities, uncovered conspiracies in religions, like the idea of fantasy politics, and more, get this game if you are a storyline centered person. If your first experience was with Oblivion and now you feel as if you have run out of things to do, get Morrowind.… Expand
Jan 28, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Let me start with the good. This game is amazing. It will grab you and pull you in like no other RPG. However, there are some bugs that make it fall short of being perfect.
The Thieve's Guild is interesting. It is similar to the Thieve's Guild questline in Skyrim with the Nightingales. In my opinion it is actually better than Skyrim's Thieve's Guild thanks to its Robin Hood-ish feel, much like Oblivion.
The Fighter's Guild is pretty standard, not much to see there.
The Mage's Guild is pretty boring, but it gets kinda funny thanks to its... enigmatic leader.
This game rewards exploration with unique artifacts, cool dungeons, and interesting quests. One of the most interesting quests you'll find early on is a finding a Nord in his underwear standing on the side of the road, who asks you to find a witch who stole his stuff.
The best parts of this game, by far, are its people and its main quest. The main quest in this game is the best one I've ever played in an Elder Scrolls game. It is similar to Skyrim's Dovahkiin, but the difference is that in Morrowind, you get to become the Nerevarine. You don't just get born as it. You earn it through trial after trial, gaining the respect of the three political parties, or "houses", and the Ashlander tribes, the native Dunmer. You go and get important artifacts, which you use to destroy the source of the main villain's power, as well as the power of the so-called "gods" that are worshiped by the Tribunal Temple. There are so many forces at work, trying to sway you to join their side. The best part about the main quest is that each mission really has a purpose to help your cause.
Overall, Morrowind is my favorite of the Elder Scrolls games, followed by Skyrim, with Oblivion in last.… Expand
May 7, 2011Truly impressive. The game is dated, but features some elements that Oblivion lacks. And while Oblivion gives a few of those moral choices quests, Morrowind really features them like you'd expect. The world feels so real and authentic With some of the patches and mods available, the game can look more like you'd hope for this day and age. Some things like lockpicking and fistfighting are unbalanced and lack compared to Oblivion, but both games are truly great. If they could be combined with the best features of both, we would have RPG perfection.… Expand
Published: June 23, 2011After 15 years in development limbo, Duke Nukem Forever finally arrived in stores last week, though game critics aren't rejoicing. We look at that and other long-delayed games that eventually managed to shed their vaporware status, with results ranging from maligned to sublime.
