Default Elder Scrolls Online - Morrowind Review

Review: The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind

Ever since the original release for PC in 2014, The Elder Scrolls Online has received countless updates and numerous expansions, revamping the gameplay and adding new content to keep players interested. The newest addition, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, is meant to be more than just another basic expansion with a vast new location, new character class and other additional content and features. This new chapter is designed in a way to not only cater to veteran players but also serve as a good entry point for newcomers, where a freshly created level one character can travel alongside someone at level 50 and the game will make it work for both players.

If it wasn’t obvious from the title, the new location in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind isVvardenfall, an island in the Dunmer province of Morrowind, which is the setting of the third mainline Elder Scrolls game. This content takes place approximately 700 years before The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind, but despite some differences, the unique environment of Vvardenfall is recognizable immediately when starting this area, taking only a couple minutes of exploration to find a domestic Silt Strider ready to ferry the player to a new destination. New and old characters have immediate access to Vvardenfall, and while there is plenty to do here, traveling to the other parts of Tamriel can be done at one’s leisure.

[…]

Closing Comments:

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is an impressive new addition to an already solid MMO. The Elder Scrolls Online has been constantly evolving since its initial launch, and the new content introduced in this chapter builds upon these improvements. There’s plenty to do in Vvardenfell, a land with consonants to spare, but one of the greatest strengths of this title is the level of accessibility. Any type of character build can work in this game, and players of all levels can play together and things will balance themselves out so everyone can have a good time. Plus, for the times when you may want to play alone, this MMO does actually provide a good solo experience. Whether someone is a long time player, new to the game, or has played before and taken a lengthy break, anyone can jump in and experience new adventures in Vvardenfell.

Score: 4/5

"… thing about Morrowind is we did far more than we could, far less polished than we should. It's a miracle that it works at all… there's too much, and it's like jazz… a product like Oblivion - far better software… but Morrowind… oh there's so much delicious nonsense in that." ~ words of wisdom by K.Rolston

This game is designed for console players. The PC controls aren't very good compared with a game like BDO which obviously had PC players in mind when they designed all the action keybinds etc. I would have much preferred a classic MMO interface and leveling structure.

What? The game wasn't released on consoles until more than a year after the PC version.

I think the controls are good and the interface among the best in the genre - though the actual combat is a bit clunky. Not a fan of the limited amount of skills on the hotbar and the weapon switching mechanic - but you can't blame that on consoles. GW2 does the same crap - and it's not on consoles at all.

Also, what in the world does the leveling structure have to do with consoles?

So… Is it WoW killer or it's not?
Not? What's the purpose of a review then?
