The is one of those classic game sequels that really packed a punch...and it was the 4th in the series! Even the box art was superior to most el-cheapo box art used today. Since this was made in the days when computer games came with freebies galore, U4 came with a free metal ankh, which was a symbol seen throughout the game itself; a cute added touch. There was also the typical artistic, cloth map of the world you could explore, as well as an elaborate manual. As for the game itself, this was the pivotal moment in the saga that put the hero of the game (ie, you) in the role of the Avatar; the symbol of everything good and virtuous in the world. If not the best in the series per se, it was still far ahead of the competition, in fantasy RPGs.
