This is the true adventure game. Set in the wonderful world where Oblivion happens to be set too, this sprawling adventure will sweep you away. The world is a beautiful place with full night and day cycle. The sky is absolutely amazing to watch and you could seriously just stare at it all day… not that I have. Cough.
This game is an old masterpiece that may not have aged too beautifully but is still as immersive now as it was back then. The combat I must say is terrible but the characters, pure fun of stealing and quests are interesting and worth doing for the experience.
The game is so much deeper than Oblivion, it's sequel, which took some features from Morrowind and dumbed them down (for better or for worse I guess?), for example there are spears in Morrowind! There are separate glove and shoulder armour pieces! There are throwing stars and knives! There are more skills! And the environments are so much more varied in Morrowind than Oblivion.
This is a great game that deserves the recognition it got at release.
