User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
Opening cinematic showing a large size asteroid heading for the Earth.
A few lucky, or unlucky ones, were chosen for the Ark project to save the mankind.
Waking up inside one of the arks... others were not so fortunate to survive the hibernation.

Before you start using real cars, you'll start with something more simple.
First few missions you'll be able to work for Dan Hagar, the guy who saved your life from the savages.
Select your weapon and ammo when you are alone because the game won't pause for it.
Exploring the caverns of a deadly gang of savages... then again, almost everyone in this game is a deadly savage.
You can focus on aiming, but that will impede your movement.
With danger lurking around every corner, there is little time for admiring the view.
Blasting your way through the wasted garage with a shotgun, but watch out for the boss in the armored car.
Use crossbow and a lot of crouching if you want to go unnoticed.
Exploring the ruined city.
There are mutants, and then there are mutants. Unfortunately, you can't pick your fights.

There goes the head... use your boomerangs in combination with firearms for best result.
Too close to dodge.
Some enemies are tougher than the other.
