Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition
Best Game in the Elder Scroll Series!
It is the best game in the Elder Scroll Series (I am going to be comparing to Oblivion) because you can 1) Do way more stuff 2) the storyline is awesome 3) It makes you think unlike Oblivion. Ok lets start again with 1) On Obilivion you cannot levitate and you have to go door to door just to walk inside places. Morriowind you dont have to wait to load so much just when you go in a building, dung, etc. 2) The storyline brings you in its captivating its immensly your decision, you get to do more then just "quick travel" which was helpful, but not needed. and with you have to find the cave of the Neverine it took me more then a week to find it!!! Yes infuriating but so awesome at the same time!... and lastly 3) It makes you think about what you are doing unlike Oblivion again fast travel and Oblivion map markers shown you were to go..... so stupid! it took me like a week to beat the game versus like 3 months or longer...Firstly because i Couldnt Find the Neverine Cave or w/e its called and i loved all the other quest along side the main quest... I loved the Guilds like Rederan and Televani (i cant remember) because you get to build your own house!... PLUS all of the "god" statues were much more harder to complete then "go here kill this comeback"... and the legendary weapons were awesome.. there were soo many more then oblivion.. so .. oblivion was a fail to me.. not what i wanted or expected... hope Skyrim is better.. !!! but i hope anyone who desires what i have said gets this game! THANKS!
The elder scrolls changed my view on videogames.
Morrowind is just one of the most amazing games in gamer history, the elder scrolls series is the best series since fall out, halo, WOW, and GTA.
One word: EPIC
This is one of the best games I have played. I remember the only reason I bought this game was because it was being reviewed on Toonami haha. This game was so EPIC back then on the Xbox that I played it for hours without even realizing how much time passed by. The graphics were amazing back then and are still great considering it's an xbox game from the early 2000's. I don't know why people say it has to point to it, even though you are given a main quest line to follow to "finish". What I like about this game is that you are never truly "finished" with this game because their are hundreds of quests so it never gets boring or too old to play. This game can get you to play over 200 hours without even completing every quest. I'm trying to find it again after my little bro broke it last year, but no GameStop where I live seems to have it haha. I would recommend this game to anyone that loves RPG's because this is definitely one of the best. Great game for any gamer, whether you only have a little time to play or you have too much time on your hands haha.
One of the best games for Xbox and 360
I hate to say it, but I own an Xbox 360 and right now this is the game I am playing! This is probably the best role playing game ever created. Sure Oblivion is a great game too but Morrowind is far more in depth. If you are a hardcore RPG fan, do not forget about this game. For $** for the GOTY Edition, this game is the best value out there. It's too bad there hasn't been an RPG for next gen systems this in depth (Oblivion is close). This is the kind of game where you start playing, and before you know it, 5 or 6 hours has gone by! The sounds and controls are great, the graphics are very good (not as good as next gen, but this game is almost 5 years old!!) and there is an endless amount of quests, caverns, towns, shrines, etc. to explore; endless adventuring! Don't miss this game!
I DEMAND A REMAKE OF THIS GAME SAME FEATURES SAME EVERYTHING BUT AMAZIING GRAPHICS AND MAYBE A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC ON THE GUESTS
A varied and interesting game.
Morrowind has a love-hate relationship with many players. To some, it is an infuriatingly complex and frustrating bore-fest. To others, it's Rapture. It depends on what you want.
For those who are 'spoiled' on modern RPGs such as Oblivion, Fallout and other such titles, Morrowind is lodged firmly in the former category. Weapons have a chance to miss regardless of collision (You see it hit, but no damage is registered) and there are several tough decisions to make in terms of character creation that can break it entirely.
On the other hand, there is an enormous worlds to explore. Dozens of deep quests, lots of equipment to collect, enemies to fight, hundreds of characters to talk to.. It's one of the most in-depth and thought-out worlds created. This game appeals to people who liked games like Baulder's Gate and the first two Fallout games.
If you are looking for a deep and meaningful game, Morrowind is definitely for you. If you're looking for cheap thrills, gore and action, then perhaps look towards the first person shooter genre.
Best RPG Game I've Played
I first played Morrowind when I got my original Xbox at the tender age of... well I can't remember but I was a youngin'. Anyways, I went over to Gamestop, saw this game, and thought I'd give it a try. I loved every second after that decision. I never went very far into the story of this game at that point. Instead, I made viking characters and would loot and pillage every village, town, and city I encountered. The character creation and development is very deep and engaging to the player and the vast, open world was a great new feature for my early gaming life. There are tons of things to do, especially in the GOTY edition. This game is great and I'm thinking I need to get another copy.
Its pretty good, a little rough
well i got this game because oblivion got boring after about the 20th time around, this game is good, very good, for the time it came out, but the gaming society today makes me focus too much on how much this game doesnt have that current games do, i try to ignore it but its hard to. the leveling system is challenging and time consuming, the quest and maping system are almost non existent. the graphics are okay, ive never cared much about a games graphics anyways. once you start out, you have almost no help and no sense of direction, getting to where you need to go is very hard if you dont like to read a lot and wander around. leveling up takes a very long time making it almost pointless, you could be level 5 and get killed by a rat. if you are an intensive gamer and very good at problem solving this is a game for you, if you are more of a relaxed gamer, and prefer to be able to beat a sewer rat (generally the weakest enemy in any rpg) without nearly getting killed, this is not the game for you. go for oblivion, its a little easier, and in my opinion, a little more fun.
Where should I start? This game has just about everything. From a great storyline to great Xbox quality graphics, this game is just so fun! Sure, the graphics might not be as good as next-gen systems (PS3 and Xbox 360) but it is good for the Xbox. This game of the year, much like Oblivion comes with two, fun new expansions that provides even more gameplay. I would say that Tribunal is the best out of the two expansions because it comes with two new huge cities to explore. When Bloodmoon comes with an island. I'll just leave that up to you. Anyway, one of the BIG problems of this game is the sound. I mean, its good, but doesn't give you the fantasy experience that your would expect from a game like this. But, the storyline takes over the sound problem. It ads two more huge storyline quests. With tons of new armor and weapons, you'll have so much fun with this game. (Except for the sound!)
A lot of fun, If this is what you prefer
I used to play this game all the freaking time. Yes, this game takes on the love-hate persona with a lot of different gamers. I can see how people might find this game incredibly boring and frustrating, because it takes some thought and frustration to begin to understand it and then once you do, there is quite a few moments where there isn't much action. However, I kinda prefer that, and there is just some kind of feel to this game that makes it amazing. Hours upon hours of my life had been poured into this game, and with each hour, I would become even more addicted. Honestly, I'm not really sure what makes it so amazing. My advice to those that are looking in to this game, buy the original morrowind at the cheaper price, play it for a good amount of time, and this is where you will decide if you love it or hate it. Then if you decide you like it, buy the extension. The tribunual was the most fun I think I have ever had playing a video game, and the storyline, mixed with this extension, in my opinion is an incredible storyline, that even today I'll find myself reminiscing about. I have bought oblivion and skyrim, loved them both, but neither had the same apeal as this one. I don't have any idea why. Anyway, this game is not for everone, it's not. But for those that do like it, a lot of fun time is ahead of you. And writing this review has made me realize that I need to play this game again, so excuse me, Ima go start it up.
