Morrowind might be the best Elder Scrolls game in the series, filled with story, battles and adventure. It's got a decent difficulty curve too, if you don't make use of the gamebreaking bugs/cheats.
I finished the game long ago, but on revisiting it for this review I noticed just how engrossing the game is, in no small part due to the amazing soundtrack. Although the graphics aren't much to look at compared to modern games, there's still a lot of interesting architecture and terrain to discover. The (night) sky, duststorms, fog and water effects hold up pretty well.
This soundtrack is filled with warm, rich brass and string sections. The sweeping, athmospheric melodies make a perfect backdrop for the adventures and exploring in the game.
The tracks are roughly divided in two parts: combat and regular background music. My favorite tracks are the non-combat ones, but it's worth checking them all out.
