Summary

The Best of the Series!

The Good

Ultima V was the absolute best of the Ultima series. With a detailed storyline and great graphics (for the time), you actually felt immersed in the story. You would walk from town to town and encounter a land of people under a strange shadow of darkness. Although Ultima IV introduced the concept for vitures, Ultima V made you understand why they were necessary.

The Bad

Unfortunately, as with most games, the graphics do not age well. The game is great for nostaligic old-timers but new gamers may find it bland.

The Bottom Line

Basically, this game was the finest RPG I've ever played. Others have been good, but this one tops my list.
