One of a kind standard.

Reviewed By: Old_gamer on 20 Dec 2020

I can’t help but be amazed at the work and love brought to this game here. Ultima sets the bar unlike anything. One of my old school favorites gets a absolute upgrade to new heights.

From a much better written script to new bosses, equipment, party swapping, super bosses, many new dungeons and now a new game + with increased level cap? There is so much new content here it’s a complete delight. A gold standard in ROM hacking that deserves respect and really gives us the game never thought possible.

Playing this makes me feel like a kid once again with that excitement. Who knows what is next?
