The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind® Game of the Year Edition includes Morrowind plus all of the content from the Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions. The original Mod Construction Set is not included in this package.
An epic, open-ended single-player RPG, Morrowind allows you to create and play any kind of character imaginable.

Your journey will lead you to the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil and massive, epic-sized dungeons, where strange and deadly creatures await you, including goblins, lich lords, and the mysterious Fabricants.
Bloodmoon takes you to the frozen Island of Solstheim where you'll experience snow, blizzards, and new creatures, including frost trolls, ice minions, and wolves... just to name a few. You'll have a choice of stories to follow and have the opportunity to defend the colony, take control over how the colony is built up, and eliminate the werewolves.

Dizzying scope, and incredible world building make this the most compelling elder scrolls. The graphics and combat may be dated, but there is an unparalleled experience waiting for those who can look past these shortcomings!

This game is simply amazing. I would say it is the best game ever made, but that's just my opinion. It has a good mix of medieval, fantasy, and steampunk. From ancient Dwemer ruins full of bandits, gears, insane mechanisms and treasures to the royal halls, fortresses, and treasuries of Vivec, this game is breathtaking.

Morrowind is the first elder scrolls game I played. It was a game like zelda kind of. I loved it because; it didn't hold your hand lke in skyrim. I'm a huge Elder Scrolls fan if you can get passed the graphics and no bar on the top you can get the hang if it. When I saw it on steam I was glad because; It's hard to find a disk copy of the GotYE now days.(well for me anyways) You can get lost in this game for days and months. At first it will be confusing but you'll get the hang of it.

I have played Skyrim. I played Skyrim obsessively. I got banned form Skyrim I played it so much. I loved it. I just bought this game. I have less than an hour on record. I already love it more. Everything i loved about Skyrim is improved in this older game. Heck, i even like just walking around more. Just watching myself walk! The combat is more depthful, and I feel it's more realistic. There is a lot more humour, and the landscape is much more interesting than Skyrim. I have not been playing long, but so far, I've loved everything I've seen.

probably the best if not one of the best elderscrolls games. There is so much you can do in this game. If you get bored with the quest line you can give the game the middle finger and kill important quest people. In fact you can kill any one you want to in this game if you got the skill to do it. My one gripe with the game is the sometimes bs hit system where some wepons wont hit people because your skill is low, but that will be fixed over a long period of time. I have been playing this game since 2006 and am still finding stuff I havnt seen before in the game. There is a ton of stuff to do. I love this game and I hope you do too

CAN YOU ENJOY THIS GAME IN 2016?

Morrowind may have not aged well with its clunky combat, dumb AI and poor animations, and while mods can improve on many of its flaws, it will still be hard to get into it for those that started with Skyrim. However, if you give it a chance you will discover that there's a lot more to it.

Exploration is rewarding, bits and pieces of lore are hidden and scattered around the map and not every detail of the story is laid out in front of you, and discovering it on your own is part of the experience. The lore is intertwined with the plot.

Magic will open a world of possibilities. Want to enchant a pair of boots that will make you jump over mountains? You can do it. Want a pair of pants that shoot fireballs? No problem! Alchemy, Enchanting and Spellmaking will turn you into a god in no time, experiment different combinations and you will feel like you can do anything.


Skyrim is a bloody good game, but it has given up a lot of the older TES freedom for a balanced and polished gameplay. Morrowind isn't polished or balanced in any way, but that's actually what makes it special: it's a giant playground where your creativity is the only limit.

Anything I could write would never bring justice to this game, it's a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ masterpiece!

I will be honest and say that when i first booted this game up half a year ago or so, i didnt like it. But then i decided that 30min-1 hr without really trying to learn how the stats system works wasnt enough. So i gave it another go with a clear mind and as of now i am totally hooked.

the first thing people will ask how does it compare to skyrim and i say its better. I have 450 + hrs on skyrim on ps3. And despite me playing this for less i still think this game is better and no this isnt a comparion between this and skyrim.

The good:
Story: I will begin with the story and is one of the best stories in an open-world game. One of the best main stories i have seen in a open world game second only to witcher 3 , but this game has a far better lore. The story touches upon drugs, gods, religion, racism , good and evil is always not as clear as it seems. As someone pointed out who is good guys here are you the good guy or are you helping some evil killing off the good , well that up to you to decide , but in this game it isnt clear who the villain really is.

Quests: In this game compared to many games i have played i really feel like doing all the side quests, i feel i help the world in someway, makes it a better place. There are alot of different side quests, from assasination, fetching, clearing a tomb, steal something , persuade etc. The main quest is great and the side quests doesnt feel forced and you will probably on numerous times find out that you rather do the side quests then the main quests. Or like what happens to me alot i do a main quest then suddently i get to a new area were i get tons of new side quests, or some of the side quests i have that can be completed in the area or close to it. Some of the best quests i have seen in a long time. As i said previously only Witcher 3 comes close or surpass it.

Atmosphere: The atmosphere is fantastic. Every city feels unique, almost every place feels unique. The landscape/ world is huge and you really feel like you are there , also because of the music. When it comes to the places you visit you got the huge place called Vivec , small towns like Balamora and Peligrad, different forts, a huge mushroom that alot of shops and homes is in.

You can walk from a huge town then you suddently finda a field with steam or you have come to a volcano. And the weather system needs to be mentioned too. It can go from bright daylight - to ash storms - to rainy nights.

Music: The soundtrack is fantastic and really helps creating this fantastic world.

Gameplay: Well lets starts with when you hit someone it use a dice based system and a variety of factors and it works. It will probably get smashed by today standards if developers did this in todays games, but if you get around the idea you will find a gameplay that is pretty great and still works al right today.

The skill system is great, with major, minor and misc skills. Major and Minor skills levels up your overall level so you can have more strenght, luck , agilit etc Misc skills is just some skills that still will help you dont focus on them too much. Your skills depnds on the class.

I will also like to add that the use journal and talk to the people to find the directions to a town or do a quest without any hand holding is great.

You can enchant whatever you want with say levitate, that makes you levitate as long as you want. You can make for some stupid reason that when you hit and enemy he will turn inviniclbe. You can enchant so you have more strength etc.

The fast traveling in this game is pretty great, instead of what alot of todays game do that you simply click on a location you have visit previously and teleporting there for a magical reason you will in this game have to either use a mage guild, slit strider, use scrolls, boat or a mark and spot with a spell then teleport you to that spot again later.So yeah its old school but adds to the exploration.

Cons:
As of my update as i have played tribunal and after reaching around 65+ hrs, i have encountered a lot more time falling trough the floor, inside buildings and so on, at the worst time i am stuck and have to teleport out. And yes you get some atletic or acrobatic xp but is still really tire some.
I have also encountred a few crashes.

Score is redone.
So for me i rate this a 9.8/10
Skyrim if you wonder 9.4/10

One of the best open world game i have played. Only witcher 3 , and fallout 2 comes close or even supass it.

N.B: When i wrote my fallout 2 review or the one for deus ex i had hard time imagining that i would fine a new game that i would enjoy this much on pc and this one did ( not going to be surprised if days of the tentacle, total war rome will be up there too,maybe the old gta`s too). Despite whatever flaws people find in this game i will still say is a masterpiece of a game.

Review might be updated or rewritten when i am done with tribunal and bloodmoon.
I have rewritten cons and the last paragraph of the gameplay.

This is a fantastic game IF all the overhaul mods are installed, with specs like I5 @ 3.2 Ghz ish, 8Gb ram, GTX 660 or better, it can be made to look the same as if not better than skyrim on console for the world, the characters and UI will still look kinda dated but it has excellent gameplay and a good story.

If you asked me to describe Morrowind in one word that word would be 'beautiful' and no not because it's graphically the best game ever this is as old as I am after all; but because this isn't just one of those games you simply play, no you experience Morrowind. Well this game is hard, at first. Your journey from level one to two is probably going to be one of the hardest journey's you'll face; leveling up for the first time is truly an achievement. Well the kind of player who has played this about a hunderd times might say Morrowind is easy-there are so many exploits, yes that is true but I doubt a first time player would know that you can make effects permanent by soul trapping yourself, or that you could lower your skill to zero and receive training for one gold. Well Morrowinds first immpression might not be the best because well the graphics might make you want to regurgitate, but some of the areas in the game hold up fairly well, but then again you do get the areas that make you want to regurgitate, but thanks to some truly talented modders have released a wide array of mods to fix that. Well combat is rather infuriating, my friend recently picked this up and we almost threw the laptop he was playing on in the ocean, but there is a mod called accurate attack to solve this problem. Most problems with Morrowind can be fixed with mods but don't mod the living hell out of it because you're really not going to get the full experience, I know I did and I enjoyed Morrowind alot more without all the mods. I think Morrowind is a master peice and that's because so much thought and detail was put into this,this really felt like a living breathing world; everything from the fast travel to the factoin clothing,even the fact that you could equip 15 different clothing pieces and that siad clothes influence how society looks at you. I can go on and on about depth but this is really something to experience for yourself. There is just so much to find and do; this really is the type of game where every time you play it you find something new and you become more educated about it. I really love this game it's definitely one of my favorite games, but then again this isn't for everyone but if this game is for you I really recommend this 8/10.

The best Elder Scrolls game ever made. Dark Souls without the constant death but with a learning curve. Minecraft in the amount of time that will be needed to invest in the world to fully progress to the end of the game. And while the writing is not Lord of the Rings, there is a far deeper, and broader, expanse of story and factions to interact with; far more than either un-modded Oblivion or Skyrim can claim.

I came from Oblivion to Morrowind and normally I keep an open mind about going to older games and so I did and this game is Incredible, I love the environment of the world and it felt like a very mystical and fun world to explore, the only complaints I have are about the combat system, for the longest time I thought the game was glitched and I could only get hits with a 2% chance while everyone else gets a direct hit, but now I realize how the combat system works, it seems rather odd but after researching it, found it to be bareable to say the least, besides that I found nothing else to dislike about the game, its understandable why theres little voice acting but it doesn't completely take you out of the experience just makes you appreciate the work put into the dialogue, I fell in love with the crazy amount of weaponry in the game and found myself using spears almost all the time, and however some can argue about not being able to fast travel via a map is a very tedious endeavor however by forcing you to travel from place to place it does make it feel more real the world you are exploring and so I would recommend this to anyone who has played the 4th and 5th elder scrolls game and is looking for something to pass the time while waiting for that 6th elder scrolls announcement.

It's a very diverse and different game from the last 2 Elders Scrolls Games, but that is what makes it great. It has a huge world with new and unusual wonders such as, Cliff Racers, Alits, Kagouti's and much more. It has a huge amount of amazing quests such as, Corprus Cure, Dagoth Ur and The East Empire Company Quests. and that's just a few of them! In my opinion, I would definitely try out Morrowind and experience the game for yourself. Also, we all experience it in our own way and that's, because it might have a small download, but it is huge in the end. Also, the Morrowind modding community is huge, live and running greatly at the moment with some really good mods and modpacks such as, Morrowind Overhaul, Morrowind Rebirth and Tamriel Rebuilt. I believe if you truly want an amazing gaming experience, Morrowind is definitely the way to go. In my opinion, Morrowind is a 10/10.

Morrowind where a mudcrab can kill you without any effort if you anr't careful (has happened to me more time than I would like to admit). Where cliff racers *cringe* are the bane of your exsistance (may we all praise saint jiub for their eradication).

How ever the story telling in this game is beyond amazing. the amout of time that must have gone into it just blows my mind. when i first played this game I was probably 8 or 9 years old and I couldm't even figure out how to sell thing (don't ask why, you won't get an answer because I'm still wondering that myself.). To now being 19 and managing to get nearly 2000g and nearly full armor before leaving the first town without commiting any crimes. There is so much to learn an do and explore without it all being shoved down your throat the entire game. With later entries in the seris (skyrim mainly) uping graphical quality, they also took away a lot of the aspects of morrowind that i found the most enjoyable. Many of wich are reducing the weapon varitiy found within the game. Skyrim has about 12 weapon types ranging from small daggers to bows. while morrowind has nearly that many types of swords alone. As well as diffrent skills for diffrent weapon types so axes and swords dont fall into the skill. And the last thing I'm going to mention here is somthing that i fell compares morrowind to skyrim fairly well (sorry for only really comparing these two games, I haven't played enough of Oblivion to make viable comparisons) "Morrowinds way of telling a story is very novalistic in its exicution, it may not be the fastest paced but It's nearly impossible to put down. While Skyrim is very much cinimatic it the wayit was made. Very flashy and nice to look at, but really lacking the depth and emotion of the original source material. Sofor those who prefer the noval over the movie I belive morrowind may be the game for you.

10/10 would recomend

All things considered probably the best TES game. Although the game shows it's age now, there are a wealth of MODS such as the 'Morrowind overhaul', which completely modernize the graphics and gameplay.

Why the best TES game?

Oblivion and Skyrim are great games, but while they improved what was bad about Morrowind (combat, graphics, etc.) they took quite a few steps back in what made Morrowind so great.

Example:

Quests:

When you receive a quest in Skyrim/Oblivion, you button mash through some dialogue, fast-travel direct to the location, and then follow your compass arrow directly to the exact location you need to go, then warp back to the quest giver. Not very immersive really.

Compare that to a Morrowind quest, where fast-travel only exists between cities: Meaning you have to take dirctions in your journal, and embark out into the wilderness to find the places you need to go, often checking your notes, or even a map. Before leaving the city you need to take time to stock up on supplies; repair your weapons, buy potions, arrows etc. It makes it feel like you are actually embarking on a quest, and makes completing quests much more rewarding.


I could go on and on. Long story short, if you like adventure RPG's you owe it to yourself to get this game. Make you sure you download the essential MODS's though.

This is perhaps the greatest game I have ever played. The atmosphere is simply amazing and the story is by far the best of any Elder Scrolls game. This is far from your average fantasy game, the world of the Dark Elves is simply magical and after a couple hundred hours played your life will never be the same again.

Morrowind was my introduction both to Bethesda and to RPGs, I have returned to it time and time again over the years. If you can humour the clunky combat and dated graphics, be prepared to enjoy one of the most detailed and imaginative games in video game history. 10/10

But yes, Cliffracers are annoying.
