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 in this. Sword, flying cars and space combat all mixed into one game. Really nothing worth the time it takes to play 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 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.

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 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 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 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).

Uncharted: Drakes Fortune

Search for lost treasure in the role of Nathan Drake and kill the other people that are also trying to find it. Nice environment to explore, cover based fighting and fun characters makes this game worth playing.

Undying

This is a first person shooter horror game and it s not that bad but it has some things that mess it up. The game takes place around 1920 and your character in the game travel to Ireland to visit a friend and when you arrive he dies in a curse that have killed everyone in his family. You then try to remove the curse to let your friend rest in piece. You see the world from a first person perspective and use your guns and magic spells to kill those that try to kill you. The really cool spell in the game is the Scrye spell that makes it possible for you to see things such as visions of the past or see the true dark nature of things in the world. Like walking around and using it on the paintings in the mansion. The bad thing about this game is how linear it is. You often only have one way to walk and sometimes you only cross a corridor before you hit a new load zone and it really breaks the flow of the game.

Unreal

First-person shooter where a prison ship with the player as a prisoner crash on a alien planet called Na Pali and the player need to escape from it. You fight the evil Skaarj that now rule the planet and get some help from the Nali, the former rulers. Nice levels to explore but it feels wasted on a first-person shooter.

Unreal II: The Awakening

The only fun thing in this game is your half nude female first officer and it is not a good thing in a game. In short it all feels like a first-person shooter like all the others with the stupid soldiers you have to work with on a level or two so they can say they have great artificial intelligence in the game and your stupid ship mates that are so clich? that you almost throw up. When some of your team mates finally drop dead you do not miss them but rather wish you could walk up and hug the monsters for killing them.

Unreal Tournament

First-person shooter that focus on competitive playing against other players. Has the basic game modes such as deathmatch and capture the flag, the one that stand out is Assault. In it one team is set to attack and the other to defend and what needs to be done depends on the level. Unreal Tournament also has weapons with both primary and secondary fire and most are forms of weapons from Unreal. Some game modes also had the Translocator as a weapon, a form of personal teleporter that the player could throw out and transport to.

Unreal Tournament 2003

The second version of the Unreal Tournament series. Not that much new that makes it worth playing but the new game mode Bombing run where you need to shoot a ball in the other teams goal was fun.

Unreal Tournament 2004

Second follow-up on Unreal Tournament. The new game mode Onslaught was great fun where you could also use vehicles and the goal was to destroy the other teams reactors. Played this so much I was dreaming about flying around that tower on the demo level :).

Unreal Tournament III




Unreal Tournament III

To much Gears of War graphical style in this for my taste and they also added a horrible single player story. Warfare is the new name of the Onslaught from Unreal Tournament 2004. Now most game modes have a option to play with vehicles.

Unreal: Return to Na Pali

Expansion to unreal were we get to learn what happened to our hero after the events in unreal. Not that epic really :(.
