    A game with so much potential, and such great marketing...that leaves a stain on everythig it contacts.....

    Why did Bethesda cater to the cookie cutter style of console (or consoil) interface? Because MS decided the XBOX360 needed it? Morrowind is an exceptional title above and beyond TES IV" Oblivion. The entire feel of the game is supposed to endure throughout, well it falls sadly short.

    I'm not saying this is by any means the worst game ever, however due to the hype I am forced to reveal its many, many shortcomings. In a world dominated by the dollar, the develper has apparently abandoned the style of gameplay implemented in the Previous title, Morrowind . In doing so, we get a game that feels cartoonish, unrealistic, and ****bersome. The menu system is absolutely worthless, with icons that represent specific categories instead of actual titles that anyone older than 7 can read. The interface menu is fixed pixel meaning that you cant modify the window size as in TES 3, there is no construction set provided...the entire game was revamped for the XBOX360 and the console community meaning that the rest of the gaming world is left to suffer. I dont care if FF really hits the spot for you, the Elder Scrolls series was SUPPOSED to be above and beyond the limitations of the console type games. PC games are never supposed to be limited by the confines of a fixed performance console, and this game is...

    If I can steer you clear of one mistake, it is to install this game without considering the deficit of gameplay. Go buy Morrowind, you won't be dissapointed. Even today, it stands as a pillar of exceptional quality gameplay and development and is a testament to what the developer is capable of. Oblivion falls horribly short...
