Where's the LOVE! I CAN'T WAIT!! :D



Full review.

The game play is as good as its predecessor with the addition of the 2 expansion packs released for the PC version. For those of you who have never ventured into Morrowind before, you can start you adventure right from the beginning and build your character to your specific mold. Morrowind utilizes an interesting “Questioning” method to determine your characters character as it were. You can also choose your characters appearance and sex, and his or her traits…Stealth, Melee, even the gift of gab to get yourself out of jams. With all of this, keep in mind that ultimately your actions throughout the game determine much of your fate and success.

I have to admit I was a little leery about this Game of the Year Edition, but I was truly pleased and enjoyed it just as much, if not more than the original adventure. If the expansions weren’t enough, Bethesda also added some new armor and weapons. So be prepared to loose a lot of sleep again, because Morrowind is back, and better than ever. For more details on the Original game, take a look-see at the review.

Visually, Morrowind GOTY is stunning, huge landscapes, endless textures, and water that only our beloved XBOX can deliver. Again, a lot of the bugs were “Fixed” from the original. Particle effects, magic effects, etc…It’s all good. Newcomers will be thrilled with the look of the game, and for those of you re-visiting…you’ll be thrilled with how well the game was “Fixed”.


Found this new interview from Ashley Cheng, producer of Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition.

I would like Highlite to explain how gameplay gets a 4.8 but the overall score is a 5.0. Gameplay is king to me and if thats not perfect then theres no way the game should get a perfect score. I can live with graphic imprefections but not gameplay.

Sweetus! I was just talking to Soda about this. Anyhow, for the low low price of 50$CAD I know I will be picking this up. I already have everything on the PC. But my PC doesn't have DD5.1 surround!

I might have to give this version a second look, I played the original about a year ago, and I got bored way too quicky, simply because I did not know what to do much of the time. There didn't seem to be a big place where you have to reach or anything like that. Now with the original and 2 expansions, if it gets a little lower in price, i might pick it up.
