It's just a shame that this is another IP ruined by the EA juggernaut.
Ultima VII and VII part 2 were/are great.
Number was 8 was a tragic disappointment, such a shitty shitty game. But when I saw preview screens of Ultima IX Ascension; when it was still isometric; I got hopeful about the series. In the end it was a pain in the ass shit game (less shittier than 8, but still shitty).
