Anyhow, my biggest gripe is that the game is actually too popular. Like someone else already said, it is overpopulated with people's houses. Every clearing in every forest, every shoreline -- every place where housing is possible, there is housing. This leaves hardly any room for new ones. Expect to start with a very small house and work your way up the ladder as you find better places.
I have one warning to give people buying UO: The 8th age though. This package does NOT come with the latest expansion! The new expansion is called Mondain's Legacy and there is no package or CD for it, you can only buy a code to download it through the UO website.
I think the way EA marketed this was very deceptive. You can play UO if you buy the 8th age but there are many new dungeons and areas that you will not have access to. You will not be able to make an elf character. Also, there is a free gift that comes with 8th age. If you select the quiver or talisman for your gift you will not be able to use them until you buy the Mondain's Legacy upgrade code (for 29.99).
Anyway I love this game and highly recommend it to all. But I would advise you to save some money and just go to [...] and buy the Mondain's Legacy pack instead of 8th age. That way you'll have access to everything in the game.
I'm going to start with the things I don't like about it. The houses/stores. They are everywhere. You go out into the wilderness, and bam!-you're in the middle of suburbia. It's not like there are people hanging out their either, just a bunch of player owned NPCs who sell stuff. Often, they don't even have anything, just a bunch of advertisments. Another thing I don't like is the Lag, or latencey, or whatever. My internet connection is fast enough, but I still get lagged, and bad. I don't think there is an appropriate server for my area. The lag has been so bad, I want to try other games now. There is only so many times you want to die because the world around you is still moving, but you aren't.
Good things. The people in the game are great. All the "well-to-do" players are all about helping out the new player. I have made several friends and have had much help, and that is the reason I still have the game. It's fun and challenging. I strongly reccomend it.
One last note, the EA technical support is not up to my expectations for something you pay a monthly fee for. If I have a question, I expect it answered for $12.95 a month!
If you get this game (and don't live in the middle of nowhere) you will have a good time, period.
