Ultima 7 Part 2: Serpent Isle
Ultima 7 Part 2: Serpent Isle downloads
This is the first game in the main Ultima series to completely take place outside Britannia as it has been known since Ultima III.
A clue book was published for the game, titled Balancing the Scales.
Like other Ultima games, Serpent Isle and its expansion pack originally came with trinkets, cloth maps, and in-universe manuals.
I remember the moment I started playing Ultima 7 Part 2. I had The Black Gate still in my mind: I loved it, and I wanted something similar. After a few weeks (or months?) I finished Serpent Isle and I was a bit disappointed. Sure, it's a wonderful Ultima game, but it lacked the open world "feeling" I experienced with The Black Gate. Maybe it was the new setting, a world different than the well know Britannia, or maybe I was just to attached to characters like Batlin or Lord British. To this day, I think Black Gate is far superior, but don't let this discourage you! Try Serpent Isle for yourself.
