Ultima 8 is fucking awesome. Its definitely a weird game, more like an adventure than an RPG. In fact as an RPG its abysmal, But when you get used to it the atmosphere and story is fantastic.

Its also hard & frustrating as fuck. I have no idea why I liked that game so much as a kid. Something about the weird atmosphere. Idduno.

U8 was also a pretty bad Ultima game. Setting aside the RPG issues (like not having a party in a core game for the first time since Ultima 3), the entire concept of virtues that had played a key role in Ultima 4-7.5 was suddenly gone, and you have to commit some seriously questionable acts to win the game. It might have been noteworthy if the events in U8 tied in to U9 somehow, but no, they don't. It was as if the Guardian had banished the Avatar to a different game universe.

I remember getting a lot of hours out of U7. I'm not sure I ever actually beat it.

If the game came with the "Forge of Virtue" expansion I would recommend doing that late-game. The stuff you get from it is kind of over-powered IMO.

Ultima 7 is definitely worth playing.

Ultima 7 Part 2 is worth playing.

Ultima 8 is not. Not even for $3.

I don't think the voice packs and other expansions are part of the WC 1+2 package?

I believe those are freely available at Wing Commander fan sites.

Syder Arcade on GameStop PC Downloads. Save 250%

It should be Save 25% of course. Just a typo.

Picked up Wing Commander 3, I don't think the voice packs and other expansions are part of the WC 1+2 package? Would rather just have the whole thing so I'll look for them to update that at some point.
