Summary

One of the Great Role-Playing Games

The Good

This game is the finest roleplaying game that Origin Systems ever released, period. The story world is both extremely large and well developed and the Uber-plot of the game is interesting and fun to watch unfold. The puzzles are hard without being confusing and the game systems, such as combat and inventory are well designed. This is also one of the last games I remember where it is neccessary to TYPE out your questions to people. The conversation manager is a slightly improved version of Ultima IV's, which requires that you ask the right questions of NPC characters, rather than getting a series of menu selections. Overall this game is a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

The Bad

The graphics are a bit dated looking these days which can be distracting, but other than that I have nothing bad to say about this game.

The Bottom Line

The "Ultimate" computer role playing game.
