    Huge, but that's part of the problem. It takes too damned long to get anywhere.

    I tried to like this game, but, it crashes during loading, it is aimless wandering, graphics are so-so and I don't feel nice in Morrowind. But, I recognize the great amount of time spent working on that game.

    Good fun. takes a while to cover large distances within the map but has enough variation to keep playing.

  1. Morrowind will please both serious role-playing fans as well as anyone looking for a technically stunning adventure that will hold their attention longer than your average hack-and-slash title. This is the good stuff.

    An exhaustive open-ended RPG that essentially allows you to make it up as you go along, with hundreds of people to talk to. [Feb 2003, p.95]
