About This Game
The eighth installment of the Ultima series takes a much darker tone. The story is much more mature (do the ends justify the means?) and the game focuses more on action, like climbing and jumping across platforms. Training your character has also changed: the more you use an ability, the better you are with it. Without a party to assist you, you must rely on your own strength, dexterity, intelligence, and magical abilities to save Britannia and Earth.
- Dark, engrossing story with a moral dilemma: will you accept evil for the sake of the greater good?
- Much more action-oriented than previous installments with fluent and responsive combat mechanics and new ways to explore the unknown.
- Living world: each inhabitant has his or her own schedule, going about ordinary business in Pagan.
- Includes the speech pack: some of the major game characters are fully voiced.
