The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind

 

 

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.

Graphically The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was highly detailed for its time. The 3D models of the characters, monsters, towns, etc. were nicely done. Some of the sunrises, and sunsets are very awe inspiring. There is fantasy magic, and some borderlines on the occult. There is also a lot of hacking and slashing by the player on monsters, and other characters. In fact attacking the townspeople, and guards is allowed. In fact in some cases the game encourages it. Blood also flows freely in this game, and the attire of some of the female characters is highly questionable. The tone of the graphics is a wee bit dark for the WMG.

There are a few language issues with this game (editor: no surprise the ESRB missed that one). The player is also encouraged to lie in certain instances in order to progress. The hacking, slashing, and blood flowing are all there in a nauseating way. These sounds are crisp and clear. Some of the sounds work well, while others just seem out of place to the WMG. The music is epic, but definitely not cheerful.

There is a lot to explore and do in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind if you can get past the plethora of offensive material. This is one that can be picked up really cheap from a variety of places, especially since it has received a sequel. If you are into very large fantasy worlds, and do not mind the major moral shortcomings (or age of the game), then it would be worth your money; otherwise not even close.

The controls usually work well, as long as the game does not crash. For some reason Windows has trouble with games on the computer at a higher frequency than console games do. Not sure who to blame here. The design of the fantasy world is very intelligent.

The storyline has some honor in it of trying to stop an evil, but unfortunately the player has to (or is encouraged to) do a lot of unsavory things in the process. It would be nice to be encourage to avoid evil in defeating evil. The WMG would not recommend this game to a pastor, and it is most definitely not safe for the entire family. A small part of the family may be interested in this one. Playing this game felt like a chore to the WMG.
