I've barely been playing my xbox lately, so I'm looking to buy a new game. One which will last me ages and will be fun and addictive. Morrowind seems to fit the bill pretty well. So, is it worth it for 15 quid? Will it last me a while?

Ohh, to be honest, the journal thing makes it far more appealing!

I'm going to peruse...

RUBBISH!

'Furthermore, one important aspect of the updated PC version of Morrowind unfortunately didn't make it into the Xbox version of Morrowind Game of the Year Edition: an organized journal. In the original release of the game, one consequence of being able to travel anywhere in a huge, open-ended world and to take on countless quests from countless non-player characters was that all those quests would be annotated in chronological order in a journal that, before long, would be the size of a novel. Trying to track down the name of the character or the destination of a quest, much less remember which quests you still had pending and which quests you'd already finished, could be a real headache. This problem was addressed in a patch for the PC version of Morrowind, which allowed you to browse your journal by quest and filter out completed quests. Apparently, though, some technical issues prevented this feature from being easily imported into this Xbox rerelease. Regardless of what could have been, though, the difficulty of keeping track of your quests is still a big problem in the Xbox version of Morrowind Game of the Year Edition. '

So, say I was sitting in the middle of some god-forsaken back water full of nasties, and I transferred save files...I'd be in the same place?

IS THE JOURNAL FIXED IN GOTY?

Because trawling through 100-odd pages of text to find some random wannabe-Tolkien name is boring.

Question - If I was to get GOTY, could I transfer save files from Morrowind 'normal'?

People will tell you Morrowind takes fifty hours to get into, but I loved it from the start. Nobody's a warrior straight away, yet despite your inability to take on a rat, you can set about carrying out more academic tasks, such as murder enquiries, finding thieves and enrolling in guilds. Stick to the towns until you become fighting fit, and you'll have plenty to do while building up skills.

Get the Game of the Year edition, though. Includes the two expansion packs.
