SummaryThe best of the “new” Ultimas, no contest!
The GoodWhile the previous Ultimas may have been superior in one way or another, Ultima 6, the first to use a 256-color graphic interface, is easily the best of the “new” Ultimas. For its’ time, Ultima 6 was a breakthrough in combining gameplay and story. The really great thing about almost all of the Ultimas is the fact that while you are cast as a “good guy”, you don’t have to act that way. And you get to build and ride in a hot air balloon, which is quite possibly a first for any RPG game.
The BadDated graphics, and the fact that this game zips along like a crack fiend on newer machines mars an otherwise excellent game. However, the speed issue can easily be fixed with a copy of MoSlo.
