5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 7 Aug 2005

This review is from: Morrowind Elder Scrolls 3: Game of the Year Edition (PC) (Video Game)
Not since Ultima 7 has there been an RPG of such staggering scope and detail that I've said "wow" out loud to my computer screen. It's hard to know where to begin, except that this game is huge, beautiful, compelling and very well thought out. Bethesda have created a world with such history and intricacy it's easy to get lost in it for hours at a time. There's far too many aspects of the game to talk about, as it encompasses an island of about 10 square miles, loads of towns full of people, a ridiculous amount of quests and loads of factions to join. One could write thousands of words on the merit of this adventure game, so just order it and see for yourself.
There are a couple of problems though. For example, almost every wild animal you come across attacks you, the combat is insanely boring, and the spell system is a bit of an anti-climax, as you typically only end up using a few spells out of thousands.
Yet these are only minor complaints in a game with so much to offer. One of the features which I enjoyed the most was the inclusion of books to read, which cover many subjects from the history of the people to silly stories and plays. I heard somewhere that there was enough text in these books to fill a 300 page novel! The longevity of Morrowind, especially with the add-ons, Bloodmoon and Tribunal (both of which are excellent) means that you won't get bored of this one in a hurry. Until of course Oblivion comes out....
