Summary

Three for the Price of One!

The Good

This contained the first three Ultima games (I, II, III) and since I'd just been introduced to Ultima III, I purchased this out of college. Since I had to work two jobs to make ends meet in college, getting three games for the price of one was great! I never did complete Ultima I (I started at III and worked back) since by the time I started it, Ultima IV was out. I still have the floppies but I no longer have a 5.25" floppy drive. *lol*

The Bad

Ultima III is very different from Ultima I and II. So I started playing III which allowed you to have a party of four and was more akin to the RPG's of today. In Ultima I and II, you were a single player character and the thing to do was rob the shop keepers blind (which wasn't hard). So eventually you had phazers (I'm pretty sure that's how they spelled it) and other advanced weapons early in the game.

The Bottom Line

This is the compilation of the first three Ultima games: Ultima I, Ultima II, and Ultima III, complete with disks, maps, manuals, and the like.
