The simple graphic presentation sticks to the usual Ultima look, but could have been greatly improved, given the Amiga's capabilities. Sound is a single background tune, which soon grates on the ear - again, too literal a conversion from the PC original. However, playability matters most, and Ultima IV has hours of this.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Wie gewohnt führt die Reise durch eine kräftig gewachsene Abenteuerwelt: Ultima IV hat ungefähr den sechzehnfachen Umfang des Vorgängers! Da ist viel Platz für aberwitzige Details: Fesselballons transportieren den angehenden Avatar zu abgelegenen Örtlichkeiten, Geisterstädte und Piratenschiffe sind direkt schon banale Alltäglichkeiten. Spätestens ab her hat sich Ultima zur Simulation einer mittelalterlichen Fantasywelt gemausert, deren Bewohner keine anonymen Sprites mehr sind.
