One of the best RPGs ever!DemiGoth | April 1, 2014 | See all DemiGoth's reviews »
I've bought Morrowind when it was released back in the days and still have the discs and box. I also have bought both the DLC packs on dics. But time progresses and inserting discs becomes 'not of this time'. so I decided to buy Morrowind digitally as well. Now that I have Morrowind digitally I will most likely play it more than when I have it on CD ;-) Though the game has aged over time (good thing there are a number of graphical MODs out there to counter the aging).
Back in the days I have played Morrowind for over 100 hours for sure, and never made it to 'the end', as far as there is an ending to this game, but now I hope to get to 'the end' of Morrowind. The atmosphere of the game is excellent, and the world really feels alive. It's a world where your actions matter and have consequences. In all, I even dare to say that this one is the best Elder Scroll game to date!
Admittedly flawed, extremely dated, undisputedly a masterpiece.Shodex | March 30, 2014 | See all Shodex's reviews »
It's 2014 at the time of writing, Morrowind is an old game. It's seen two sequels, Oblivion and Skyrim. But despite the huge financial success of it's successors, Morrowind is still the reigning champion of The Elder Scrolls franchise.
Morrowind thrusts you into the island of Vvardenfell, homeland of the Dunmer (Dark Elves), an otherworldly and mysterious world ripe for exploration. You begin your journey in a small village named Seyda Neen in the boggy Bitter Coast, your first quest see's you headed to the city of Balmora. On your trip you'll head through the Ascadian Isles and see giant mushrooms tower above the trees, jellyfish like creates float through the sky, among all other mannerisms of deliciously bizarre scenery.
The Elder Scrolls doesn't need an introduction, you know the basics of the gameplay. You adventure around a huge game world, going as you please and making a name for yourself as a hero. But if you're coming from Skyrim or Oblivion, your road to legendary won't be so easily walked this time. Morrowind is much more in depth and challenging, combat has more in common with D&D dice rolls than the action combat of the sequels. If you want to just jump in and have some fun without worry Morrowind simply isn't for you.
If you're a patient RPG enthusiast who loves learning interesting lore, exploring every nook and cranny, casting a wide range of spells, and using all sorts of weapons, Morrowind is an unmatched experience. And like Oblivion and Skyrim after it, Morrowind's mod support is phenomenal. Though sadly at time of writing many old mod sites have since gone down and disappeared, but there are still more than enough mods to be found online to expand your playtime or just make the game a little less dated.
Morrowind can be painfully slow in the early portions of the game, it's old and it shows it, but even through all it's dust the pure gold shines brightly. This is a game that all hardcore RPG fans must play.

The first of it's kind. This game redesigned how games are played and kicked off a great series of games that get better with every release. (I don't count the previous elder scrolls games as they have the feel of a different game)
The genredefining game that saved Bethesda from bankruptcy!sas41 | Feb. 6, 2014 | See all sas41's reviews »
The game that showed me the what and RPG should be like, a game that gives you so much freedom that most often than not, you will be lost! This is Morrowind, this is "The" RPG, and my all time favorite Elder Scrolls game, and here is why.
MW (Morrowind) is a game that from after the first 5 minutes, let you be completely free, you can go anywhere, do anything, kill anyone, steam any item, or break in to any house. Every Quest in the game is optional except the main quest and even that is something you may not finish in your first (10) tries. The entire game is based upon freedom and it tells you a story if you want to listen, and gives you the freedom to do or not do any of the quests. Is your quest to find a ring? KEEP THE RING! or Give it to its owner. The choice is always yours but beware, for there will be consequences! The game for its time is regarded as the genre defining masterpiece, a gem crafted so carefully, that to this day it stands the test of time simply by reputation. Every complaint you might have based on personal preference can be fixed by using 3rd party mods, some improving graphics with crazy levels of detail and hight polygon models and high-res textures, or completely changing the dice-roll combat system, this game is regarded as a classic, and for a good reason. It has so much replayability that, you might play it for months to come if not years!
