I think TES games are very hard to evaluate which one is the better, because each of these has at least one feat it excels, and many others it sucks at. As such:

Morrowind on XSX (also on every platform imaginable, sans Playstation)
Yup, that's right. I'm replaying a nearly 20 year old game on a super-duper next-gen console, able to crank out 12 teraflops.

Since you know what to expect, YES, I strongly recommend it. The original had potential, but was very clunky (translation, etc). This one is much more polished, it even has a difficulty setting! :)…
