Return to Britannia!
Although this is one of the lesser entries in the stunning and massive Ultima franchise, in terms of fantasy RPGs, it still stands head and shoulders over most other similar game and is a must play for old-school fans. It's got everything you need in such a game, including a sprawling, epic narrative, a huge world to explore and heaps of depth and customization options. This one has a highly compelling and pretty complex story, and which sees the Avatar (the player) embarking on another adventure to save the land of Britannia, this time from the threat of a mysterious race of gargoyles. The essence of the game is similar to previous installments, being an open world RPG, where you will explore, complete sidequests, engage in combat and seek out treasures. However, there are some notable changes here, including a fully continuous world which makes the game feel more immersive than ever before, which is aided by an increase in detail, while there are also significant changes to the interface, and when combined, make this a superb experience. As far as old-school RPGs go, this series has always been one of the best, and stands alongside the Bard's Tale and Wizardry franchises as a must have, and this sequel is another great entry. The changes help to keep things fresh for veterans, while newcomers will appreciate the streamlining and sense of refinement. The visuals remain full of personality, thanks in part to the wealth of detail on display, while the gameplay is rarely less than gripping, so if you consider yourself an RPG, then this needs to be in your collection.
