Summary

One of the greatest CRPG's of all time.

The Good

Great story, great gameplay. This game was one of the first games to really get me to fall in love with the Ultima series, although later releases in my opinion (other than Ultima V) do not come even close to being as good as this game was. Richard Garriott created a masterpiece and you should give this game a try even though it has outdated graphics and controls.

The Bad

Not much but the only thing that I can think of is that this game was very hard to complete.

The Bottom Line

An old-school role-playing game that is truly unique. It will suck you into Britannia for a while and you will beleive you are the hero on a quest to become the avatar.
