In the seventh installment of the Ultima series you — the Avatar — must go back to Britannia and investigate a series of strange events. Two hundred years have passed since your last visit and much has changed since then. An unknown being who calls himself the Guardian has appeared and is forcing everyone to bow to his whims. In addition magic doesn't work as it should, it seems that all of the mages have gone insane, and quiet towns are being terrorized with ritualized murders. It is unclear what is happening, but initial signs point to some kind of organization called the Fellowship. It is up to you to unravel the mystery and find out what is really going on in Britannia.
Ultima 7 is arguably one the best in the series. With enhanced graphics, sound, and controls it was a huge step forward not only for the series, but for the entire RPG genre. The level of immersion was astonishing at the time. Rich environments, wide-ranging dialog trees, and dynamic combat were all masterfully combined by a team that Lord British (Richard Garriott) led to create a game that can't be ignored by any cRPG fan.

There are a lot of good things one could say about Ultima VII, but the most relevant one is this: after almost 20 years, it's simply the best, unmatched king of the RPG genre.
You won't find any game which could came even close to this when it comes to size, detail, world interaction, NPC behavior, amount of content, etc.
It's not the sort of game you can define as "good for its age". it's the best RPG ever made, period.

One of the largest semi-open world RPGs ever, and easily a landmark title for the genre. From rich characters to beautifully detailed locations in a world that actually *works*, Ultima VII is nothing short of magnificent. With the expansions and the sequel, Ultima 7 Part Two, gamers will find many, many hours of adventuring in the best titles in the entire Ultima series.
An absolutelyread more unmissable game that is worth playing for the story and adventure elements alone, as it is not too combat heavy.
Also, consider playing this with Exult if you wish to have higher resolution graphics.

First let me get this off my chest...
YYEEAHH!!!!! WHOOPEEE!!!! ALRIGHT!!!
Thanks. Now about the game. This is the best computer RPG there ever has been, and it is the forerunner of such modern greatness as Skyrim. Of course now Skyrim will have to wait.
This game is a world of its own. Every person in the game has a personality, and you will really care about the worldread more of Britannia when you play this. This feels more like a vacation than a game. Please do yourself a favor and grab this one now so you can see what I'm talking about.
Insta-buy. Plain and simple.
I love Gog! I...LOVE...GOG!!!!!!
THANKS!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!
