About This Game

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. You can choose to follow the main storyline and find the source of the evil blight that plagues the land, or set off on your own to explore strange locations and develop your character based on their actions throughout the game. Featuring stunning 3D graphics, open-ended gameplay, and an incredible level of detail and interactivity, Morrowind offers a gameplay experience like no other.
In Tribunal, you journey to the capital city of Morrowind, called Mournhold, to meet the other two god-kings of Morrowind, Almalexia and Sotha Sil. 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. Or, you can decide to join the werewolves and become one of them, opening up a whole new style of gameplay.

One of the greatest computer games I have ever, ever played. To write paragraph upon paragraph about why I think as such would waste valuable time that you could be using to experience it. Do not be fooled at the current 6 hours Steam says I've been at it.

A truly enchanting, rich, memorable masterpiece.

Morrowind has to be my favourite game of all time. Yes, it has crappy combat. Yes, it has sucky graphics. But if you can get past those flaws than you will immersive yourself in one of the most detailed and interesting fantasy worlds.

(If the graphics still bother you, search for 'MGSO 3.0' on the morrowind nexus. MGSO will improve the graphics significantly)

This is one of the few games I've actually kept the original disc and jewel case on my bookshelf. It's currently collecting dust, because now I play it on Steam (yeah in my lifetime, I bought the game twice.) Hundreds upon hundreds of hours of content here. Extremely rewarding. No quest markers, no hand holding. Immersion city. Would I use the words "immersion city" to describe any other game I've ever played on the PC over the last 20 years? No, I wouldn't. I've played this game for well over a decade and still manage to come back to roll a different build/race/guilds/etc. I'm still finding new ways to do things.

This game will not hold your hand. You'll have to learn the hard way if you're not quite ready for a task. The game can be pretty harsh at first, especially to someone completely new to this type of RPG. To those people, read up on a few guides that have explanations of how things work, and why. Ask NPCs questions, sometimes you'll unlock quests, find out some locations or other interesting information. Learning to save the game, and keeping a couple on hand, before embarking into the unknown is critical. In time the lands of Morrowind will be your oyster and you'll be brushing aside everything that stands in your way, while loving every second.

Combat in Morrowind (what appears to frustrate people,) is based on attributes. Play to your strengths attribute wise. Don't start fights with low stamina either because you're not going to hit much. If you're swinging away with your short sword, with a 25 short blade attribute rating, with no stamina, you're going to continue to hit air. As I stated earlier, read a couple guides. The are endless possibilities after you understand basic mechanics, and level up the attributes you plan on using.

Another frustration I see voiced occasionally, is there is no 'fast travel.' There actually is and there are several ways to do it. Joining the Mage's guild provides you with portals in variously locations across the map. Stilt Striders are another form of fast travel (the gigantic bugs standing in front of Balmora, yeah, they carry people from city to city.) Many other major towns have them, too. Also, the Mark and Recall spells. Good luck finding these spells easily early on, or you could get lucky. Mark an area, use Recall when you want to instantly travel back to the area you marked. There are a few other ways to fast travel, to keeps, or temples. You can get around the map pretty fast if you know what you're doing.

Graphically, maxed out, it's not the prettiest games to look at anymore. The game came out in 2002, what did you expect? That being said, if you have a decent computer, google 'MGO Morrowind.' Check my profile to see some examples of this graphics mod in my screenshots. Don't expect the best optimization, but it breaths some fresh life into this great, great game.

One of the best western RPG's of the early 2000's. Morrowind is a classic, and although the graphics and gameplay may be a bit dated, they still hold up to standards.

This game has better atmosphere, lore, mods, music, RPG elements, characters, and memerable moments than Skyrim will ever have.

This game felt like a new fantasy land you were dropped into fresh of the boat (literally) and left to explore at your own whim. This game did not guide your hand and baby your ♥♥♥ start to finish, everything was at your own discretion.

This game felt our hearts with adventure and wonder at a young age and still does to this day.

This is the definitive Elder Scrolls experience, Oblivion comes in second place with epic dragons xD Skyrim tailing behind.

Mods are totally optional, the vanilla base game is amazing though I strongly recommend 'Morrowind Comes Alive' mod and 'Better Bodies'. Your gameplay experience will triple.

Buy this ♥♥♥♥ing game if you haven't. I had the GOTY edition on PC CD, played the Xbox version as well and the Steam version just makes everything easier and better.

Morrowind is my home.

Over the past few years, I've played a good 90 hours or so, mostly through borrowing my friend's xbox. Over that time I went back and forth on my opinion of this until I finally managed to settle on a solid answer: This game is worth the money. However, you may struggle a bit getting into it. SInce I'm not going to compare this to the other games in the series, I'll just give a pros and cons list and a summary.


1. Interesting story.
It's not always easy to find an rpg with a good story. I can safely say that Morrowind does a decent job with this, and it tells a compelling story.

2. Real RPG mechanics.
As much as I sometimes have trouble with it, the hit/miss system is much more in line with a tabletop rpg, which I feel like bethesda was going for. take this one as you will, as it isn't for everyone.

3.Vast and creative world.
This was one of the first games I came across when I was younger that actually had a unique world, immersive lore, and sheer size to it. Even after all my time playing I still haven't explored everything, and that's part of the fun!

4. Mod support.
I don't know about anyone else, but I love mods! They have the potential to breathe new life into older games through many means such as dlc-like quests, new armors, graphical overhauls, and even sound packs! Some even give new playerhomes and worldspaces to explore. If you don't mind searching through pages of cringeworthy nude patches on the Morrowind Nexus, this is a huge plus!


1. Dated graphics.
I get that this was top of the line when it came out, and honestly it doesn't hold up too poorly, but these can be an issue sometimes. not being able to tell if what you're looking at is an argonian or a bunch of triangles can be pretty jarring. If you truly can't stand older 3d graphics, stay away from Morrowind.

2.Real RPG mechanics.
"But you put that in the pros column! How can it possibly be bad AND good?" The answer is this, my friends: inflated difficulty and painfully slow traveling! The hit/miss mechanics are genuinely more like tabletop RPGs, but there's a reason they aren't commonly used. when you're in a 3d world space and you stab someone in the face with a sword, you would probably expect the sword to do damage when it actually visibly collides with the enemies' face. In Morrowind, actually hitting them only gives you a CHANCE to hit when this occurs. This makes for an insanely difficult beginning to the game, so be warned. Also, YOUR STAMINA DEPLETES WHEN MOVING!

I know that a lot of the hardcore fans of the game love this aspect, but the map of Vvardenfel is really bad, there's no fast travel (which to be honest isn't all that horrible,) and there is NO compass to help you through questing. A lot of the Morrowind fanboy crowd would say "You don't NEED a compass, the quest givers and NPCs will give you directions! It's called immersion!" But the problem with this oh so horrible excuse is this: Npc directions are frequently wrong! I don't know if this was an intentional "Immersion" trait, or if the devs just typed it wrong, but there are numerous quests that have no correct directions, making it nearly impossible to find the objective! Quest markers were added for a reason, people! Mod this in!


The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind has its flaws, but it makes up for them in creativity, exploration, and just downright fun! As long as you can find where you're going, the game is really good and worth every penny!

It's not an easy game. If you're used to Oblivion and Skyrim, it seems rather clunky and obsolete at first. It took me several tries before I could really get into it.

But man, when I got into it, I got into it hard.

Underneath the supposedly clunky mechanics lies an RPG experience so deep and rewarding that it has yet to be matched to this day. It's a game that allows for a level of player freedom that the later Elder Scrolls games could not match. Not to mention the land of Morrowind is still, to this day, a beautiful and unique world with a culture worth discovering. There are many stories to be told on this land, and once you climb over the the initial barrier to entry you will find yourself making many of your own.

Morrowind is, without a doubt, a masterpiece.

Useful Information in this game: I recommend you choose the Steed sign, and increase Speed and Agility more often.

You can move menus like webpages! Even when you're not in the menu!

Can't really fast travel unless you find a Silt Strider

This is THE Elder Scrolls to me

I can still remember when I played this first time in 2003. It was my first sandbox rpg, my first rpg love. It was love at first sight. In Morrowind it felt like I could do almost anything, and world was rewarding and interesting. Dungeons that could be filled with pitiful rats or something scary that could kill me with one hit. Finding artifact was fun and felt like really something. No level scaling, no cringy dialog (I'm looking at you Fallout 4) and no disappointing dlc. Morrowind is still the best work of Bethesda.

Of course there are some flaws. Since this is game of Bugthesda, there is bugs and glitches. Combat can feel bit clunky at first, but it's easy to get past it.

And those god damn cliffracers...

I haven't put much time into this game yet, but I am in love already. I got into the series on Oblivion and that was on PS3, I also played Skyrim on PS3 so I am used to the low fps. I am on Windows 10 and it works so don't worry. I recommend this game to anyone that loves RPG's and the Elder Scrolls.

My friend told me about a secret companion in the game called the Cliff Racer, and I want to go check that out later. Wish me luck!

The last in the Elder Scrolls series which requires thought to play.
You must actually read to understand what is going on and how to get to places.
Signs are your go-to for directions, NPCs will tell you general locations of thing relative to land marks, and there are no magical floating arrows anywhere.

Main storyline is okay, though the side quests and fluff content is excellent.

Game is designed with random hits/misses as its core, so the start can be tedious of flailing without results but does get better as you level your skills with the weapons.

There was a competition to make a build that wasn't viable to beat the game with.
It provided not a single build that couldn't work.
Seriously if you can find a selection choice that makes you unable to beat the game, then post it somewhere and be praised for your insight.

Graphical quality is definitely a factor for one's enjoyment if they're into that sort of thing.
Its models are super low polygon counts, and the animations are very jerky.

The weather effects actually aren't bad.
Snow resembles snow and feels like snow when moving through it.
The Sun has an accurate light blinding effect, and looks really bright compared to everything else.
Rain is the worst of the effects but it gets the job done. I feel it is a bit too line-stretchy rather than point-drops in appearance.

You are able to become super powered at the end-game to the point of being a God without the requirements of using third party tools/cheats/mods.
