SummaryGrandfather of the Ultima series... but very primitive.
The GoodStill has the "feel" of an Ultima (almost). The magic amulet was pretty neat, too -- it had a bunch of random effects on your character each time you used it.
The BadNo real plot to speak of, just questing and killing monsters. Also the food usage rate is horribly inconvenient, and you die the instant your food quantity reaches zero. Frustrating to imagine a battle-hardened warrior dropping dead from starvation just outside the town wall.
The Bottom LinePlay the other Ultimas first, and become a diehard fan. Then you'll appreciate this game.
