Default Ultima 6 comments

I just noticed that Kosta put my Ultima 6 review up. So, what do you guys think of the game? I'm quite interested to know what the people who never played it originaly think of it. Has it aged well? Is it rich enough?

Any comments welcome...

Hey Kosta, maybe a comments system on each game would be good?

You might have to run INSTALL.EXE and set up your sound. It will ask you to create a new character and what drive to install the game. Don't worry just put in the drive letter that the game is on and it'll carry on. It works perfectly in dosbox for me so that's all I can think of.

I hope you get it to work

Great review. I haven't tried the game yet, but sure will in a few days. So what's the next one in RPG section? Darklands? Magic Candle? Keep up the good work.

Ultima 6 -- An ABSOLUTELY GREAT game... I played it for like 15 minutes and I already liked it.

This is one of my favorite games of all time besides Savage Empire, Kyrandia, and Several other RPG's and Stratagy games.

I used to play this game whe I was in Grade School. All the other kids thought I was wierd. Funny

I played it for a while
it seemed as if I needed to use a program to slow it down
everything went quite fast.
didn't udnerstand a good chunk of it (attacking for example)
and whenever I wanted to scroll down to read the text I would plunge to the very bottom (probably because I needed to run a slow-down program on it)
music worked (not sure if you should hear speech... since I didn't)

the review tempted me into downloading it, so good job!

yeah - a slowdown utility is unfortunately a must (DOSBOX works like a charm).

Thanks for the kind comments on my review, I really love this game and used to play it non-stop so I really tried to put that through in the review. I'm really glad that it seems to be coming through...

Attacking is pretty easy once you know how:
1. You have to be in battle mode (I think you need to press 'B' to toggle it on and off)
2. You press 'A' to attack and a cross appears which you need to move over the enemy that you want to attack and press 'ENTER'. The cross hair will only work if you can reach that far (I can't remember exactly if it moves out of bounds or not) but if you have a ranged weapon then you can attack an enemy that if far away, otherwise you can only attack an enemy right next to you.

I hope you enjoy it.
