I tried. I couldn't. I didn't. And I still don't.
This is not an RPG like Ultima IV, V, and VI were RPGs. This plays more like an adventure game and should not have been labeled Ultima VII. It might have stood on its own as Ultima Adventures I or something like that, but don't tell me this one is inheriting the tradition of excellent RPGs handed down from its predecessors.
The Bottom Line
If you like Police Quest, King's Quest, et al Quests, you may like this one. But for me, this marks the turning point where the Ultima dream world became a nightmare.
