One of the most original games ever. I think it was a genius move to make our own dark side game's villian, instead of some uber-duper great black knight with chip on his shoulder. We need more stories like this.
Aside from continuing the trend of setting the standard of RPGs in its day in virtually every way, U4 had a depth of play, symbology, and ethic-based play that is seldom approached even today in the genre. All RPGs have cause and effect, the starting with Avatar, moral choices and the development of personal character (not character stats) truly found its birth. For all of these reasons, Ultima 4 deserves its place in the top ranks. After all, without it, most other games of the genre would likely not exist.
Fantastic game. I remember playing it after Ultima 3 the first ever RPG that I played. At that time story line came before glossy graphics.
Changed role playing games forever. The standard.V1 Comment
Great game, great series, great community, and some of the hardest sidequests ever! Laxius Force rulesV1 Comment
Great dark and gothic RPG with a surprise guest.....Dante from the devil may cry series! you can actually recruit him as a part of your party so he's not just there for show (note:he starts out as you enemy but depending on how you play he may become your greatest ally)
this game is by far one of the funnest, adventurous and addicting games there is, dungeon siege 1 is quite better then 2, but they both are very very well made RPG's
A really, really good game. It was years ahead of it's time and it's replay value is very high. I'd recommend it to anyone.
This was one of the first RPG's I remember playing, and think it was the first I completed. I loved this game and I still love it.
This is too good to be a freeware... the game that brought me to the world of rpg... this is one of the best rpg's - iajaubab
The daddy of RPG's. Still plays well a quarter of a century after it's release. More ground breaking than any RPG before or since. The only game I've purchased a system just to play. Beware of those pits in the dark! Screamer slice anyone?
The original, the best. There's nothing better than battling squeaky trees, giant rats etc.
The one true king of the rpg/dungeon crawler genre. The fact it's so low shows the lack of a true wide ranging (not console or pc) knowledge and appreciation of the genre and what makes a great rpg.
Amazing game, and one of the first true rpg's, and it was for the best system so far, the nes. I don't know about everybody else, but I am tired of the newer games, ever since the ps2/xbox/gamecube time, pretty much all rpg's are way too easy.
I played this game for hours and hours when I was a kid and I must say it was very addicting!
X-men & Brotherhood together? AWESOME! - aeromaxx777
I don't know what this is abut but BEST GAME ever!
I support the above post about Power Rangers Time Force.
Don't risk your life; it's not worth it.
