Wow what an RPG...and I do not like it :(
This game for the most part is......boring and unimmersive.
The lack of music and the dull 8-bit graphics really does not help, and yeah there is that xu4 mod that makes it 16-bit and has music, but you all what happened the last time I attempted to install that mod :P
Fighting most enemies are easy, until I faced the Balrons and Tree creatures that spams sleep spells that fucks with me everytime I encountered, it is even more annoying if I have the volume on because I have to hear "eeeeeee" noise when they cast the spell.
Do I have to mention the progression systems, This is by far the most bullshit way to level up my stats:
In order to level up my stats, I have to touch these orbs in the dungeons, but they deal massive damage as a result, what a bitch, this game punishes me for leveling up my stats :(
And lets not forget my favorite part, grinding virtues, I said it before and I will say it again, that begger in the game makes me never want to give anything to beggers in real life.
How do you find enjoyment in typing "Give", "1", and press ENTER 1000 times just to makes out my compassion virtue.
Last but not least RPG elements are primitive, here I can fight dragons and demons and still kill them at say level 3 with a normal sword :P
Oh and the wind system is programed against me, its like its predicting where do I want to go when I sail, I go north, the wind blows north slowing me down.
If there is one thing I like about the game its the original story and the sandboxy feel of the game, I liked battling enemies on my ship, because it reminds me of Pirates of the Carribean.
Basically my problems with this game stems from one obvious fact: This game is too ancient. After playing more modern RPGs its hard to go back.
I am really sorry for not liking this game as much as I should, oh well lets hope Ultima 5 is better.
