Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness

First game in what was to become to Ultima series and it's hard to see the future greatness. Sword, flying cars and space combat all in one game. Unless you try to play all Ultima games i would not recommend it.

Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress

This is a grind style of game and to move forward in the game you need gold and you get it from killing things. You use the gold to buy better stats so you can buy better weapons and armor. With it you can kill things faster so you buy food and hit points. You keep killing things until you finally get a boat. Not that it change the game, but now you can use the Fire key instead of the Attack key for killing things. That's the amount of fun this game contains.

Ultima Underworld

Great role playing game in the ultima world. A bit old now but still one of the best when you get used to the sprites. You are accused of kidnapping and imprisoned in the underworld. There you have to and prove that you are in fact a very nice guy. The game is a bit hard to get a hold of this days but if you would like to play it you can look at www.ttlg.com.

Ultima VII: The Black Gate

You return to Britannia two centuries after the the events in Ultima 6 and a someone that goes by the name The Guardian now try to get the power over the land. There are also a religious order that go by the name The Fellowship that seems to gain more and more power and they seem to be connected to the Guardian. The major plot takes you all over the world when you search for Elizabeth and Abraham, two of the founders of The Fellowship. The game world is very nice and you are free to walk around as you wish and solve sub quest and explore.

Ultima VII: The Forge of Virtue

This is a small expansion pack to The Black Gate. It adds a new quests in the game were the Avatar must pass some tests to be given the Black Sword, a very powerful weapon.

Ultima Underworld 2

This game takes place between Ultima 7: The Black Gate and Ultima 7: Serpent Isle. You are in Britannia in Lord British castle when the whole castle is imprisoned by a dome of blackrock created by the Guardian. While searching for a way out you find a gateway to other world below the caste and you travel to them to find something to destroy the dome over the castle.

Ultima VII: Part Two - Serpent Isle

The second part of Ultima 7. After the Black Moongate been destroyed at the end of U7:BG the Avatar and his companions follow Batlin that flees to Serpent Isle

Ultima VII: Part Two - The Silver Seed

The expansion to Serpent Isle that add a new quest to the game. It gives you the chance to get some powerful magical item to use in the main quests of serpent isle.

Ultima VIII: Pagan

This is the eighth part in the role-playing game series Ultima. After the events in U7:Serpent Isle the Guardian banishes the Avatar to the world of Pagan and the Avatar needs to escape from it and find a way back to Britannia. The arcade style control system were you have to jump around on moving platform is sometimes so frustrating you want to jump on the game CD (and burn it to another CD so you can jump on it again).

Ultima IX: Ascension

This was not a worthy ending for the Ultima series. There is only one good thing in the game and it s the graphic engine. I like to see Britannia in full 3d and it s nice walk around in it.

The worst part of the game is the fact that is ignores more or less all the events in the other ten games that have been before it in the ultima series. I m sure that they would like it to be possible for new players to enjoy the game but it is stupid to do it at the expanse of the people who had followed the ultima series in the past. The story of the game is extremly stupid and even a new player would see that things don t fit at all in this game. There are simply to many things wrong to write down here, look at Hackis ultima page ( http://members.inode.at/357352/english/nitpicks_u9.htm ) for a more complete list of why you feel something is missing when playing this game.

In the game the avatar arrives from the world of Pagan to find that the Guardian have more or less total control of Britannia. The king don t even know that huge columns of chaos is raised in the air around in his land and your old friends from the other games only sit around at home and does nothing so its up to you to stroll around, collect magic items and do a ritual eight times to save the world.
