Il pubblico accolse calorosamente questo gioco di ruolo, apprezzandone molto la libertà concessa e le decine di ore di gioco disponibili nonostante i limiti di memoria di quei tempi, spronando il suo autore a dare continuità al solco da lui tracciato anche negli anni a venire.

Każdy szanujący się fan RPG’ów powinien chociaż na chwilę zapoznać się z pierwszą częścią jednej z najsławniejszych serii Role Play’ów w dziejach elektronicznej rozgrywki. Gra uruchomi się bez problemu na każdym systemie będącym w stanie obsługiwać emulator DOSBox. Nawet 28 lat po premierze można przyjemnie się bawić przy Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness.

Aus heutiger Sicht wirkt das Spiel naturgemäß ein wenig mickrig, die Kämpfe bestehen aus einem simplen Schlagabtausch Mann gegen Ork, im Lande Sosaria läuft nur ein einzelner Held herum, und daß es letztlich bloß darum geht, den bösen Obermotz Mondain zu killen, ist nach neueren Ultima-Maßstäben geradezu lächerlich. Aber für damalige Verhältnisse war das Konzept so sensationell, daß die PC- ind C 64-Besitzer keine Ruhe gaben, bis das Game schließlich 1986 (in leicht aufgepeppter Form) vom Apple II auf ihre Computer umgesetzt wurde.
