There is a tremendous amount of disk access, especially with a 128K Mac (I also tested the game on a 512K Mac) Van Artsdalen responded to this criticism by saying that "...the game does swap out some code during play, and doesn't keep the maps around because of the lack of extra space, but then Ultima III is a big game." Indeed it is, but more could have been done to speed up play. A few strange bugs surfaced during my many gaming sessions, but perhaps these were unique to my review copy. The several program crashes I experienced (always at the "Journey Onward" point) are being investigated by the publisher. Note: Use the Mac's desk accessories during the game at your own risk. Even though the Mac conversion is far from ideal, Ultima III is a very enjoyable game, and well worth its hefty price.
