An extremely addicting game, especially since it is possible to become part of an online community. Player run guilds and towns, and even larger cities are becoming a common occurrence. Unfortunately though, as with many online games, technical problems tend to hinder gameplay. Complaints about bugs and rampant player killing are frequent on newsgroups and several web pages but Origin, for the most part, has been responsive to feedback, and updates the game via online patches.

Oct 23, 2013This is my all time favorite MMORPG. UO is very addictive, even with it's dated graphics. I've come across no other game which gives you the amount of items to collect and things to do. I've been playing since 2000 and don't plan on closing my account anytime soon.
Just to name a few features, there is custom housing, player run towns, guilds, player vendors, boats, quests and lots of places to explore and things to do. UO holds a place in my heart that no other game will be able to replace!… Full Review »
Oct 25, 2012It seems this game has generally favourable reviews, and I would guess the reason is that the only people still reviewing it are people who have been playing it the most part of 15 years and still enjoy it. 13-15 years ago, I would've given this game a 10/10, ironically this was also when the game suffered from more bugs and lag that you can imagine.
UO was one of a kind but opted to become a clone of more modern, graphically superior, grind-type MMOs. Give the players "content" to complete, with very large rewards, rather than making it a complete sandbox that people lived and breathed in. Where true friendships were formed and for every friend you had, there were another 5 people scheming your demise.… Full Review »
Jul 17, 2012A true sandbox mmorpg that still has official and tons of free shards with various rule sets around. Be a crafter hunt monsters and treasures. Ultima online is famous for it's timing based pvp system. The graphics are of course a bit dated but even today it's hard to beat Ultima online when it comes to gameplay.… Full Review »
