Summary: If you can gather nothing else from this mammoth review, understand that Morrowind is colossal, offering a virtual infinity of opportunities for the ambitious RPG fan. Of course, its focus is considerably narrower than its predecessors and often finds itself trimming previously available features...
Excerpt: The first time I played Morrowind , I walked between opening port Seyda Neen and the riverside town of Balmora, the first of the many locations the game requires you to visit. I'd spotted the giant Silt Strider on top of the hill, but didn't have enough money to pay its driver to take me to my...
Excerpt: Sorry, folks, it's been awhile since I've had a review. But don't blame me, it really wasn't my fault this time. If you're going to blame something, blame Morrowind. The biggest news at last year's E3 is even better than the hype, as the dozens of fan sites around the 'net will tell you.
Excerpt: The Elder Scrolls III – Morrowind Björn Fallqvist Have you ever felt you feel too “confined”, whether it’s in the real world or in computer games? If the first apply to you, don’t play this game, but go out a bit instead.
Summary: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is a great game. There's so much to do, and fine ways of doing it, that the gameplay is top-notch. And the graphics, my stars! Every place in the game is a potential screenshot.
Bloodmoon provides more of everything that made Morrowind a great role-playing game and is the most polished product yet in the series.

Summary: Expansion packs tend to get less interesting with each consecutive release after the original game. While successive releases may be more polished, the game's engine gets a little more dated and it's difficult to offer gameplay that isn't repetitive.

Summary: Even though they are becoming increasingly common, expansion packs for role-playing games don't generally offer a rewarding experience for anyone other than the most devoted fans of the original game.
Excerpt: Morrowind is possibly the most anticipated game of the year. How did it do? Unlike Star Wars: Episode 2, the critics are in awe of the newest installment of the Elder Scrolls Saga. I am in complete agreement. If anything, Morrowind is almost too much of a good thing.
Excerpt: Bethesda Softworks has spent a long time developing Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, the third installment in their series of expansive single-player RPGs. Morrowind was released with a decent amount of hype and fanfare, and it easily lives up to most of what everyone has heard about the game.
Conclusion: That being said, Morrowind is an excellent game. In terms of gameplay, there's very little more that can be offered by such a far-reaching endeavor, and Bethesda should be proud of such a fine effort.
Pros: Limitless gameplay, excellent visuals, complete construction tools for would-be DM's;
Cons: Crash bugs exist, sound is monotonous, steep system req's.
