Scrolls III : Morrowind
Scrolls III : Morrowind is a re-release budget title, for those
familiar, it is the sequel to the award winning RPG's Arena and
quest starts on board a prison ship arriving at Morrowind, where
you are to be given your freedom. The first part of the game is
to set you up with your character and his/her relevant skills, and
there are loads to choose from, some strong in magic, others are
more stealthy, and some just good for a fight.
you go to the Census Office you are asked of your class, this can
be done in three ways, the more personal touch is if you go through
a list of questions, and depending on the answers you give decides
the class for you.
You can also create a custom class, or a quicker way is to just
pick one from a list. Finally you are asked of what birth sign you
were born under, and again choosing from a list, this will add more
to your abilities.
the fun starts
You're on you're own from now on. The menus, inventories and journals
are all very easy to navigate, these enable you to see what you
are carrying, weapons, potions, duties to carry out etc.
you start to meet people in the villages, if you talk to them important
topics will be highlighted in the text, and you can then probe further
on those topics, this although helpful, is a little time consuming
and can get tedious.
is not quite to WWE standards, but a good fistfight with a witchery
grub along the way is fun, although the first time the grub beat
you beat opponents, your skills will increase and the further you
go into the game more weapons are available (if you choose that
type of character).
game is a massive journey, which will take weeks not hours to complete,
depending on which way you play it, either going for the set tasks
or just explore the world set out in front of you.
game has a nice relaxed pace, nice if a little dated graphics, good
background music, and as I said before loads and loads to explore
So if you like RPG's or just need something to chill out on, after
getting RSI from that first person shooter you've been playing then
Morrowind definitely fits the bill.
