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.
Third person role-playing game based on the Dungeons & Dragons and Forgotten Realms rules. In this game you take the role as one of those with the mission to save the town of Neverwinter from a evil plague. It starts simple with you collecting the parts needed for a cure and then you need to run around outside the town for a while hunting down those that created the plague. Then it all ends inside the town again in a epic battle. The game can also be played in co-op and that is the most fun way to play it.
In this sequel you play as Maia. She can transform herself into a a variety of summonable creatures. A bit weaker idea then the first game. Explore areas in the world and find characters to add to your party. You can have up to three characters in the party from a total of seven. Reminds me of Kotor.
Be a Jedi, swing a lightsaber and choose between good and evil. This game has one of the best stories ever and the dialogue with the characters in the game is great. You play a republic soldier that wakes up after a huge battle with a memory loss and you find out that you have really strong Jedi powers and you travel to the Jedi enclave to start your training. The republic is at war with the dark Jedi Revan and Malak that both turned against the republic after fighting in the Mandalorian War. You are free to choose you path to the light or dark side as you travel the galaxy with your companions in search for clues to what turned Revan and Malak to the dark side and the reasons for you strong connection to the force. Many fun dialogues with you companions and and best of them all is the not so friendly assassination droid HK-47.
This game takes place some years after the first and some of characters return. Your character is a exile from the Jedi order that was cast out for your actions in the Mandalorian wars. You were cut of from the force so you were not part of the Jedi civil war that followed the Mandalorian war and now years later your force connection returns. Hunted by the Sith you travel the galaxy in search for the jedi masters to get some answers from them why the throw you out from the Jedi order as you find out that the things you did in the Mandalorian war was not the reason. Our hero HK-47 returns and once again gives great advise on how to handle the meatbags you meet. This game could be as great as the first one but to many things in it don t work out. The story is not as good as in the first game and many parts of it the story/game is incomplete or buggy.
Wuxia style action role-playing game in a setting inspired by ancient China. The gameplay is a lot like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but the thing that sinks this game for me is the simplistic battle system. In a setting where ancient masters are everywhere and people fight each other to say hello there need to be more to it then skills named after animals.
Role-playing game where the roles are set and the playing takes care of itself. The only thing left is to follow the story and read every note to try to understand what is going on. All the characters overact like the voice actor had a gun to his head so it get's a bit tiresome after a while. The final nail for me was the combat. So repetitive and boring I gave it all up. So youtube for the rest of the story then.
