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.

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.

I tried very hard to like this game, but I just couldn't. I had a hard time figuring out what my basic stats meant, where the heck I needed to go, whether or not my sword was actually connecting with these stupid rats I was trying to kill, and why I walked about as fast as a turtle on Lunesta.

Additionally, this is an older game, and old games look like butt. That's okay; I don't mind if a game looks like butt. Some of my favorite games look like butt. But this game doesn't even look like good butt.

I suppose there is a possibility that this game is actually quite good. If that's the case, it's a good game that simply wasn't designed for people like me: People who like to know what the crap is going on and why they are looking at butt.

Aye, my full screen is windowed, and my windowed screen is full? Like whoa... I do the full screen option, and the edges are black, but i have window borders in the middle of the screen. The windowed option gives me an immovable window with no edges.

Other than that, and the fact i have no idea what the hell is going on... is fun, yeah?

I have played this game since it came out in 2002, and it continues to be my personal favorite of The Elder Scrolls series. The story is compelling, and actually draws you into the world unlike in Skyrim, and Oblivion. Don't get me wrong that Skyrim and Oblivion don't draw you in. They do, just not on the same scale.
Advancing in a Faction requires you to be proficent in their favored skills, not just doing the quests.
There are NO limits to what you can do if you really think about it.
Have you ever wanted to make a ring or amulet that lets you Levitate forever? This game engine lets you do that, you just have to make it yourself.
Do you want to use the soul of a God to power a pair of slippers? Go for it.
Have I replayed this game over and over? Of course.
Do I recommend that you play this through before playing Skywind? Absolutely.

If you've played Skyrim, chances are you've always heard that grumbling Elder Scrolls fan who keeps insisting that Morrowind is the best Elder Scrolls game. I don't really have any nostalgia for this game, so that bias isn't here. I can say that there is ALOT wrong with this game: from the combat system to repeating textures to mannequinn NPCs. If you've just played skyrim and want to play this game, you will be very bored during your first few hours. However, if you give the game patience and start to experience the better story and environment, you might actually enjoy this game. For it's time, it was amazing. Now, it really depends on you. Personally, I enjoyed it for its money's worth.

I thought Skyrim was a great game.

I saw people talking about how Morrowind was better, how it didn't match up to the game that came out 8 years prior. At first I didn't believe them. How could a game from 2003 compare to a game from 2006 (Oblivion) or 2011? So I saw it on sale at a modest price, and I bought it. Am I glad I made that purchase? Hell yeah.

What a video game Morrowind is. It hasn't aged particularly well, I admit*, but the game underneath the 2003 visuals is something that still worth a look at. A huge look in fact. Yes, while it isn't as packed with content as much as it's newer releases, it still has enough for you to dedicate a sizeable potion of your free time to complete. Some of the mechanics in Morrowind would be seen as "outdated" or "products of its time", I personally felt like these mechanics were more relaxing while wandering around the island of Vvardenfell, but also had the potential to challenge you in combat. Remember, this game came out in 2003, so it's no surprise to find out that it has 2003 video game hard difficulty at times. If you make the same mistake I did and come into Morrowind, hoping to have as simple a time as Skyrim or Oblivion, you're gonna have a bad time.

However, these little difficulty issues or content shortages don't impact too much on the quality of the game here. Morrowind is quickly becoming one of my favourite games on PC and certainly my favourite Elder Scrolls game.

*Downloading the Morrowind Overhaul Mod mostly fixes those ugly textures and soft lighting issues though.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
