From back of box:
    Upon escaping the crumbling ruins of Shadowguard, the black fortress of Minax, you lay your weary body on the now-sacred ground. As you rest, you remember your first encounter with the evil wizard of Mondain, whom you later tracked down and destroyed. The existence of his apprentice, Minax, was soon revealed and the crusade was begun again. Younger and more cunning than her mentor, she has been much more difficult to vanquish. But now your sense of accomplishment is touched by a chilling fear. Have all vestiges of evil been removed? Somehow, you sense that your treacherous foes have not been eliminated. Without further feats of skill, daring, and perseverance, all of your past accomplishments may be lost. You stand up, prepare your armour, and walk to the dimension door. Stepping in, the hunt resumes.

    "The world of Ultima III can only be compared to a living tapestry - complex and beautiful... This is the best fantasy game in computing. Indeed, it is one of the best fantasy worlds in which to live. Lord British is a veritable JRR Tolkien of the keyboard." -Popular Mechanics

    "Exodus: Ultima III, with a superior plot to match its superior gaming system, is a great game. It upgrades the market; in several ways it sets new standards for fantasy gaming state of the art." -Softline

    "Exodus: Ultima III is Lord British's magnum opus - so far. It's fun and exciting to play and constantly intriguing. And the ending is marvelously unexpected and not a bit disappointing - except that it is the ending, and as with a good book, you'll probably wish there were more." -Softalk
