Summary: You will need a computer from NASA to run this game without lag and maybe it will work. I have one quad core with 8 GB ram, video board Geforce 9600 GSO and there is no way to run this game with no lag. Maybe if I try some cluster solution. Shame because the songs are very good, graphics too but the lag ...
Excerpt: This title is now available in the bargain bins (at least I picked up a copy for E7,50 in the Netherlands). Positive things first: The cloth-map inside the box looks quite neat, and will probably come in handy. Also, the gaming environment sure looks the look. Bees and butterflies pass you by, trees look tree-like and if you look carefully, you probably can watch the grass grow. BUT: All this graphical glory does come at a cost.
Excerpt: I'm no fan of the Ultima games, but when I first picked up a copy of Ultima 9, I thought: Wicked Graphics! Then I brought it. BIG MISTAKE! You see, thats where the good things stop, the graphics, they are lucious, sure, and hardened fans can roam Brittania in 3d, but thats it. End. Apon loading the game the first problem arises, no matter what character you choose to play they all differ VERY slightly, and each makes no difference in the game.
Excerpt: So, the end of the lauded Ultima series, loved passionately by millions of game-players. The true RPG series of the age created by Lord British productions. The game starts with you waking up and then following a training session around your home, familiarising yourself with the game controls, fighting, picking things up, eating etc. And then you get whisked back to Britannia, where the people of the land once again need the Avatar (ie. YOU) to get them out of their fix.
