1.0 out of 5 stars Get the PC version instead April 1, 2006

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely agree that gamers seriously considering playing Ultima VII should invest their money and time into the PC version. The SNES version significantly changed the story, gameplay and overall experience. Unfortunately, the SNES version serves no substitute to the legendary, influential masterpiece known as Ultima VII.

Ultima VII's beauty belongs to the fact that you can play with a memorable cast of characters and have fun doing exactly what you're not supposed to do. Ultima VII gives you the opportunity to act like an obnoxious little Avatar, doing absolutely everything in your power to confuse, frustrate and enrage the characters. The SNES version pales in comparison, and I am afraid I make a gross understatement by saying so.

The time it takes to find a copy of Ultima VII and get it working on a Windows XP machine is well worth gamers' trouble. You will have a truly unique gaming experience that many do not know exists.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Bin Garbage May 9, 2002
If you see this game for sale and think that it just might make it somewhere close to the PC version, for god's sake, don't buy it. You are totally wrong. This game falls so short of it's computer counterpart it is recognizable as a completely different game. I (unfortunately) bought this game at a local swap meet where all of the vendors came in from out of town. O! Woe is me! I could never return it, but really, that's okay by me, as I would pay three times the ammount to see it immolated along with all of it's twins. All of the fun in Ultima 7 was doing things that you weren't supposed to, finding hard to find items and collecting companions. Well, in this version, you can do NONE of these. If you have played Ultima 6 on the PC and the SNES, you know how perfect the port was. Exactly the inverse is true for Ultima 7. Save your money for a better computer or, jeez, a can of lighter fluid. Just DON'T BUY THIS GAME!!

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Absolutely unbelievable. If you had the miraculous experience of playing the PC game Ultima 7, do not be fooled by this cheap imitation. The original game was one of the very first truly interactive worlds, and was a very open world. Not to mention fantastically fun and spellbinding. Now this ungodly filth, on the other hand, should not be allowed to be labeled with the name Ultima. Upon inserting the cartridge into my SNES, rubbing my hands together with anticipation, my first(and last) 10 minutes into the game, I developed a severe headache and had to drink down a bottle of pepto bismol to refrain from vomiting blood. My hopes and dreams were crushed. I had lost feeling in half my face, and had lost memories from my childhood. What I am trying to say is; Abandon all hope ye who buy this game. It would be infinitely more fun to crawl through broken glass and be sprayed in the eyes with battery acid. If only I could give it 0 stars.
