  Ultima IX: Ascension review for the PC
New to Ultima IX is a toolbelt for quick weapon equipping, using potions, etc. The mouse is used for controlling the viewpoint, but whenever an item is picked up, the old mouse interface for moving objects with the little "hand" is still there.
Ultima IX draws you in with a great story, a good interface, terrific gameplay, and graphics that, under proper conditions, create the mysterious and enchanting world of Britannia with more success than perhaps any game has ever had at creating its setting.
Ultima IX is the legacy of gaming companies focusing more on the dollar than the quality of the product: an 'A' game murdered by an 'F' game's bugs.

 Ultima Reality - TheUltimaSociety
Some avid fans of Ultima debate whether or not certain of these games -- especially Ultima VIII, Ultima IX, and sometimes the Worlds of Ultima series -- should be considered canonical.
The Ultima Dragons were the first example of an Ultima fan culture that identified itself as such and came together outside of an in-game context.
The Wayfarers are the first and only known example of a movement of people who examine and appreciate the implications of the Way of the Avatar as a philosophy that is applicable "in real life." Few if any of these Wayfarers embrace the Way of the Avatar as their only or primary life philosophy.

 Ultima VIII - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ultima VIII: Pagan (1994) is the eighth part of the computer role-playing game series Ultima.
Ultima VIII sets off where Ultima VII ended: The Guardian has grasped the Avatar from the Void, and now drops him into the sea of the world Pagan through a pentagram-shaped portal.
This expansion to Ultima VIII was planned from the outset, and was much anticipated, but never released; it was cancelled when the main game didn't sell as well as had been expected, despite being all but finished and ready for duplication.

 GameOver - Ultima IX: Ascension (c) EA / Origin
Since that chapter of the story of Ultima was closed to me, the release of Ultima IX: Ascension was less anticipated for it’s improved graphics over its predecessors or the new weapons, puzzles and other such superficial aspects than it was the conclusion to a saga that has spanned nearly 20 years.

 Ultima IX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ultima IX was controversial in that it deviated from most of the previous Ultimas' isometric view and party-based gameplay.
This was Ultima IX as conceived of circa 1990-1994.
At this point, the gameplay Ultima IX would have been re-located to Britannia, and a new storyline would have to be written to incorporate this change, as well as the changes resulting from a turnaround "back toward classic role-playing" and away from the direction that Ultima VIII had been headed.

 Pentagram - News   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Furthermore, support for the Japanese version of Ultima 8 should now be at the same level as that for the other languages.
The most obvious difference is Ultima 8 now runs at the 320x200 resolution that the original ran at.
We recently managed to decode the SFX file format used, as well as the cutscene format used in the intro and endgame movies, which means that all of the file formats used by Ultima 8 have now been decoded for the most part, although there are still some remaining details to be worked out.

 About Origin's Ultima Series
I'm a member of UDIC (Ultima Dragons Internet Chapter) a group of people who are supposed to be crazy about the Ultimas.
I had felt that Ultimas should be similar to Wasteland (I guess I overlooked the fact that only the top-down view was being compared) where the meaning of life wasn't to kill monsters and get powerful weapons, but to interact more with the world.
In the third Ultima, there is much more interaction with the people than the previous ones, and there is still the food problem, except that you can make money by creating and deleting characters.

Ultima VIII is an interesting game, and I'm pretty sure Richard Garriott caught some flak from right-wing fundamentalist groups about it, but I think that's what he was shooting for when he designed this game.
In this Ultima, the player reprises his role as the Avatar, but on the world of Pagan; one of the dimensions the Guardian has conquered in his quest for whatever it is he's looking for.
(I hope to find out what that is in Ultima IX: Ascension.) Ultima VIII caught criticism about it's not only it's controversial title, but pretty much everything about the game.
