There is so much depth to Ultima IV that it is difficult to get all of it across in short review. If you have never had the inclination to try one, then there has never been a better incentive. There are a lot of games in this style for consoles, particularly in Japan. The Ultima series are the originals and the best. This is good enough to last you right through the Summer holidays and into Winter as well, by which time, hopefully, Lord British's minions will have finished work on Ultima V.

I was expecting Ultima IV to be something of a let-down as a Sega title, but fortunately my fear have been well and truly quashed. Okay, the graphics and sound are a bit simplistic, but this doesn't distract from the strong story which grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go.

Darauf haben Besitzer eines Sega Master Systems lange warten müssen: Das Rollenspielepos "Ultima IV" hat seinen Weg über die herkömmlichen Heimcomputer endlich in den Modulschacht der beliebten Sega-Konsole gemacht.

Bei Ultima 4 handelt es sich ohne jeden Zweifel um lebendige Rollenspiel-Geschichte. Das Werk ist auch heute noch spielbar, jedoch sollte man jede Menge Zeit und Geduld mitbringen. Mir persönlich waren die Kämpfe am Ende, mit meiner vollzähligen Truppe, schon zu langatmig und zäh. Einige Rätsel sind ohne Tipps fast nur mit Glück zu schaffen. Trotzdem hatte ich viel Spaß, was vor allem an den ungewöhnlichen Schwerpunkten, der umfangreichen Welt und der tollen Steuerung lag.

However, I'm pretty sure there is a very deep, involving and even rewardig game somewhere hidden in Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar. I just don't think there are many games who have the patience to get it out.
