well first of all this game is big and will take u a long time to complete so if u don't have enough time or something i suggest to not play this game. the good things are that the graphics are pretty good considering its 3 years old, there lots of choices in this game, always something interesting, and has a high replay value. the bad things are that the combat is sort of blah, npc don't talk its all reading(except when u walk around they might say some things), u have to do a lot of useless walking. the bloodmoon and tribunal expansions are good especially if u want to turn into a werewolf or are a high level. it has a transfer thing so u don't have to start a new character. the load times are a little bit longer though due to bloodmoon and tribunal. i suggest that u get this version if u haven't tried the original one. its a great game and deserves a try.

Morrowind is one of the greatest games for the Xbox. I rented this a long time ago and then decided that I just had to keep it! You can become a vampire. (!) And a werewolf. (!!) There are three difeerent great houses you can join, which are basically just like guilds except you get to build a stronghold and have a place to hang your hat while not out killing stuff, and there are also four different guilds you can join; The assassins guild, the fighters guild, the mages guild and the thieves guild. And on top of all those you can join the imperial legion (the army), the imperial cult (church) and the tribunal temple (kickass church). So really I whole heartedly recommend this for any gamer that completely wants to immerse themselves in another world, this is the game to do that with. It rocks, it really does.
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, GOTY edition contains the original Morrowind, plus its two expansions, Tribunal, and Bloodmoon. The gameplay is identical between the normal and GOTY versions, as are the graphics. Unfortunately, a few major problems, exist in the game. One of them is that due to the massive scale of Morrowind plus its two expansions causes the game to slow majorly during loading. Also, the game will randomly crash, which is unforgivable in any game. I had a problem with the quest structure, as the Tribunal expansion starts pretty much at the beginning of the game, and may pose problems for starting players. The game gives you the option to convert a non-GOTY save to GOTY, so if you have a high level character in regular Morrowind, you can use it in GOTY. Because of the above flaws, I can't fully recommend this game unless you're a die-hard fan, or have finished the normal Morrowind completely.
