5.0 out of 5 stars Good? Bad? Here is the real deal January 2, 2004
Ultima Online is a unique game. I have played many Online games, including DAOC, Everquest, Ragnarok Online, Diablo 1&2, Star Wars Galaxies, and many more. So I think it is fair to say Im experienced with online gaming. In Ultima you can do so many thing, there are dozens of skills, and an endless ammount of playing styles. You can be a hunter, a fighter, a merchant, a thief, a bard, a smith, a carpenter, a tailor, an animal tamer. there is SO much you can do in UO.The thing that really sets it apart from the rest of the games out there, is that it has the best social system of any game. You can join a guild, you can join an army, or you can join a mall (a large player owned house of merchants). I have been playing UO for almost 3 years now and I have made great life long friends because of it. Most of the other online games out there, you fight a rabbit-level up, then you go and fight stronger rabbits- level up, then you go fight super rabbits-level up, you dont have much freedom. We know UO is a unique game, now lets get down to the ratings. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Online Critics favor Hack & Slash games September 20, 2003
I avoided this game for years simply because I heard a lot of bad reviews about it. Online Critics gave poor ratings. Many players complained about the player killing and the lag. My cousin always raved about this game, but I never tried it because it was $10.00 a month to play. Now that many games now charge a monthly fee to play I decided to try it. I feel like I was lied to. This game is one of the best games I have ever played, I can't understand how this game recieved such bad reviews. The depth in this game is unmatched. Many games copied Ultima Onlines skills and concept. Ultima Online is very underated. I can't believe games like Everquest and Diablo II get better ratings from online critics. What are these critics thinking! Everquest and Diablo II have great graphics, but the gameplay is very boring in those games and lacks very much depth. I use a dialup connection and the lag was not all that bad. On weekends and during busy hours the lag is bad, but overall it is not that bad. Lag in Diablo II was much worse I thought. The siege perilous shard and the Great Lakes shard were the funnest to play I thought. The siege perilous is the best shard to play on if you like PvP. Gameplay is close on that shard to what Ultima Online origonally was. I had a lot of fun on siege. The theif profession is very fun to play on that shard. No other game out can match the PvP experience Siege Perilous offers in my opinion. If you like crowds and like to see busy cities the Great Lakes server is the best server to play on I think. Britiana really feels like a city. During primetime there must be about a hundred players all hurdled around the bank trading. I thought before Diablo II had a great trading system, now I relize Ultima Online's is by far superior. The economy in this game I think is unmatched. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Addictive, Immersive, Absorbing MMORPG March 17, 2004
By A Customer
Of course Ultima Online (UO) is nothing new to the world of online gaming. In fact, it is probably one of the most succesful MMORPGs (ie, online role playing games with a persistent, massive universe and a large number of other players) in commercial terms. That may seem surprising initially because when compared with some of its competitors like Sony's Everquest or Mythic's Dark Age of Camelot, UO suffers from older generation graphics and visually is not as appealing as these other titles. With this latest edition, the graphics have been somewhat improved, with a 3d version available that essentially makes your character 3d in a 2d world, but even with that UO's graphics lag behind the competition, and graphics are often the first -- and sometimes the only -- thing that a prospective gamer looks at when evaluating a game.
Well, UO is the quintessential case of the danger of judging a book by its cover. Notwithstanding its graphical limitations, UO is quite simply the deepest, most complex, immersive, varied and thoroughly addictive experience that the MMORPG genre has to offer. Unlike many games where you have 6-8 character classes to choose from, perhaps a few more if you are lucky, in UO you have no classes per se, only skills that can be used to develop into professions based on skill levels ... and the list of possible professions you can end up with is long -- 25 plus, including not just the typical warrior and mage professions but a number of interesting ones like merchant, miner, blacksmith, tailor and the like. Your character advances not so much by experience points but by enhancing skills through using them over the course of time. There are so many to choose from, the possibilities for customising your game experience are nearly limitless.
