The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind Reviews
A great repository of nostalgia-heavy stories, but it doesn't make the most of being an MMO.
Morrowind feels like it begs you to come home, and what a welcome it has in store when you get there.
All of the changes Zenimax Online has made to Elder Scrolls Online since its 2014 launch culminate in the Morrowind expansion. Returning to a classic Elder Scrolls region, the expansion stands a great update to old environments. The writing is excellent, though the overall presentation can feel a little dry at times. The new Warden class needs a second look as well, but overall Morrowind is an excellent welcome mat for new and returning players.
15 years later Morrowind is still a special place. Those who return home will be greeted by familiarity, but with a modern twist.
While Elder Scrolls Online has improved through the release of Morrowind, it still isn't enough of a jump to warrant a resounding recommendation (the 4v4v4 PVP mode here still isn't enough to get me into ESO PVP). If you already own it and are coasting by on free-to-play fumes, you should still think about upgrading and exploring the pointed, more focused land of Vvardenfell.
Overall, it's a great expansion and one that doesn't feel needlessly bloated, concentrated within a single area while adding new features elsewhere. However, if The Elder Scrolls Online hasn't already won you over, Morrowind isn't likely to tip you over the edge.
Maybe this will not get more new players, but Morrowind is what every expansion should be. Featuring lots of new content, a great new story and nostalgia for The Elder Scrolls' veteran players.

A great expansion that adds a lot of content while providing a reason to keep waiting for the next The Elder Scrolls main game.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is a solid, well written and fascinating expansion of an imperfect game. If you loved the original Morrowind and you wanna come back to those lands, characters and lore, you won't be disappointed.

A few technical issues aside, this is a great expansion that will please fans of the original Morrowind, as well as allowing new players to finally experience Vvardenfell for themselves.
Bethesda has done a great job of recreating one of the franchise's most iconic locations in the Morrowind Expansion for ESO. It's also a good showcase for just how far this game has come in the last few years.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is a dream come true for many diehard Vvardenfell fans, and does an admirable job in presenting something new and fresh in a way that also makes sure to pay homage to the past. The game expands ESO to include a new 4x4x4 arena mode, and offers hours of new content to enjoy. Any players who are already enjoying Elder Scrolls Online should be expanding, and any fans of the original Morrowind who have held out on ESO may want to consider giving it a try now.
The Morrowind expansion to Elder Scrolls Online can be described as ”more of the same”. It's a huge island, filled with stuff to to and with tons of new features. The combat system still is in need of an update, though.

The Elder Scrolls Online - Morrowind DLC could've been a second chance for the game, but instead the players got a bad product which is not capable to hold the attention for long. You can still play it, but it's better to revisit the original masterpiece from 2002 once again or return to a special edition of Skyrim.

ZeniMax shows with Morrowind that there is still lots of enjoyment to be had in Tamriel.
The Elder Scrolls Online gets its biggest shot in the arm yet with the extensive Morrowind chapter. It doesn't properly fix the fundamental flaws of the base game, but it does add an interesting, fresh depth for veteran players whilst keeping it somewhat accessible for newcomers.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is a very enjoyable expansion to an already rock solid role-playing experience. Featuring some fantastic questlines, this is a welcome return to the island of Vvardenfell - a wonderful location which has been lovingly recreated.
Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind certainly offers some great quest lines and a fantastic nostalgia trip for those familiar with Vvardenfell. However, it feels a lot emptier, with monsters being simply unexciting and the new PVP being abysmally balanced. The new Warden class, however, offers an interesting new way to play.
Morrowind is a capable add-on to an MMO that's a leader in story and questing, and is only improving with age.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind offers a successful trip into the past, that greatly benefits from the nostalgia bonus.
