The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

  • Excerpt: There are games that are massive, and there are games that are really massive. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is one game that is huge. Typical of the Personal Computer (PC) action adventure role playing game (editor: of this era) - the fantasy world is in 3D, an enormous. Plenty of towns, computer controlled characters to talk to, quests to do, and vast dungeons to explore. This game was rated ‘T’ for Teen by the ESRB with Blood, and Violence being the descriptors.

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Review

  • Conclusion: Future developers can look at Morrowind and see exactly what went right and what went awry. Hopefully the creators of the next wave of RPG’s have a clipboard out and are checking off what to borrow and what to improve on and what to add (cough, Peter Molyneux, cough). Regardless of all its neophyte flaws, Morrowind has already captured a huge audience who are happily crossing that bridge between PC and console role playing games. Not bad for a first attempt.

  • Excerpt: When film critic (and I use that description loosely) Leonard Maltin covered the Friday the 13th film sequels in one of his movie review guides, all he could muster in the way of criticism was "more of the same". While there's a grain of truth in that assessment, simply saying more of the same and leaving it at that always seemed to be a cop out to me.

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Into Liquid Sky
20 April 2004
  • Excerpt: Morrowind begins as with the player on a slave ship. For some reason, you've been set free by the Imperial authority and dropped off on the shores of the Vvanderfell District of Morrowind, a diverse land populated with many races, including the Imperial colonists and the Dummer, or dark elves. Beneath the surface of political and social intrigue, there is an entity called the Blight, which seems to be diseasing the land.
  • Pros: Huge, impressive environments, Extremely open-ended gameplay, Lots to do outside of the main quest
  • Cons: Framerate issues when outside, Graphics engine seems unpolished for Xbox version, Combat is clunky

  • Excerpt: Now, you're probably thinking to yourself "with this kind of ambition, could they pull off a game that actually works?" Well...there's good news and bad news. Yes, the game is immensely enjoyable, and will have you glued to the television set for hours on end as you attempt to become a badass. Yes, Morrowind exudes a PSO-like addictiveness that will have you staying up far too late several days in a row and lunging for your controller the moment you regain consciousness.

15 February 2003
  • Excerpt: Back when the CD format was introduced, people spoke enthusiastically about all the advantages that the new medium would provide to gaming: better graphics, higher quality music, spoken dialogue, fully animated movies, and gigantic virtual worlds. And although most of those advantages have been realized by now, one could argue that the size and length of video games has stayed nearly the same.

The Next Level
26 August 2002
  • Excerpt: At the same time, Japanese-themed RPGs were music to my ears. Adol, Ys , Phantasy Star , Chrono Trigger , anime, big eyes, orchestrated music, adolescent lead male characters with a chip on their shoulder and cutesy female counterparts to die for. Save the world by battling monsters ridiculously larger and much more powerful than you while painfully earning experience points to survive.
