Finally there's an adventure for Game Boy to rival the scope and excitement of such NES hits as The Legend of Zelda. Ultima combines the thrill of hand-to-hand combat with the wonder of exploring a vast world. Don't confuse this game with the NES version of Ultima. You can build up your character as in an RPG, but the overhead view puts you directly into battle.

Ich konnte es kaum glauben, "Ultima" für den Game Boy! Und tatsächlich: Extra für Nintendos Taschenkonsole hat Ultima-Schöpfer Richard Garriot sein "O.K." für ein spezielles Szenario der berühmten Rollenspielreihe gegeben. Leider hat die Minifassung nur noch wenig mit den Originalspielen zu tun. Eine abgespeckte Version hätte man gerne akzeptiert, aber das Game-Boy-Ultima ist leider kein "echtes" Rollenspiel mehr, sondern entpuppt sich als ein eher mittelmäßiges Action-Adventure.
