This game offers experiences that you don't get in any other game. I've played Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Morrowind. And the immersion in the game is as good as the immersion in Fallout 3. The lore is unlike anything you have ever experienced. Like a few hundreds of written books in the game you can read and learn. One of the top most replayable RPG's ever, without a doubt. Amazing customization. People complain on how the graphics suck or whatever, but a part of me thinks that just because the graphics were low quality, it actually enhances the whole like character of the game in a way. I love this game, definately my top 5 favorites. ALSO, you are probably looking at some of these 5 or lower score reviews, and might be agreeing. Honestly, the majority of them, if you pay attention, the reviewer only makes it to like level 2. I don't know what the heck they were thinking by getting this game and being that impatient with it. Hundreds of quests and they were complaining how they didn't level up to level 2? Horrible reviews. The fondest memory I have with this game is backpacking as a thief and moving from city to city for thieve's quests and ransacking a home and make it mine. And unleash my inventory of potions, collectables and more into the home. I remember the rainy and foggy weather I experienced in Sadrith Mora, or whatever it was called. Great game, really.

First off this game isn't for everyone. It takes time for your character to level up, and until they do, the game is extremely hard and frustrating. You can't hit anything with your weapons and you are not skilled enough in magic to succesfully cast spells. Basaically... the game is only good when you are strong enough to go exploring, that's where the beauty lies. When you start exploring temples and mines out in the middle of nowhere you come to appreciate this game a lot more.
I've played this game for about 40 hrs now and I have barely scratched the surface of the story. This game is absolutely HUGE. There is hundreds of miles of land to explore, from islands to mountains to the sea. It's a great game... just don't get turned off by the games beginning... because you could be the most powerful creature in Morrowind if you play your cards right.
I don't know how to dscribe this game. It is just huge. It is the biggest game I have ever played. I have no idea why the people that rated this game before me gave it such a low score, but frankly, it doesn't deserve such a low score.
