Ultima 7 Part 1: The Black Gate

Ultima VII: The Black Gate is a top-down RPG where you, the Avatar, have to find out what's happening in Britannia by solving quests, meeting interesting NPCs and fight hordes of headleass monsters. The land of Britannia is shaken by mysterious earthquakes, a new religion (the Fellowship) is spreading and is replacing the old virtues, and who is the Guardian? Ultima 7 takes another leap forward in the Ultima Series by upgrading both graphics and the interface.

What magazines wrote about it

"While other Ultimas did something similar, this was the first to make the graphics top notch and full screen, better immersing you in the experience. The story itself was equally inspired in the intro, an evil beast called The Guardian dares you to thwart his plans with many mini-quests and subplots as the game progressed. As you'd expect, this is also on the list of Techtite's choices for Top 50 Multimedia Classics. Deservedly so." - Techtite review

"More than anything, Ultima VII was the game that first made me realise I preferred worlds that moved around me rather than worlds that I simply moved through. The way that worlds come alive for me can be in the history-changing sweep of a grand strategy game or something as simple as the addition of day-night cycles. It can be an attempt to simulate an ecosystem or something as simple as enemies actually dropping the equipment I can see they were carrying seconds before they crumpled to the ground. It all adds to the sense of existing in a world, which adds to my enjoyment of creating narrative in that world. And Ultima VII was one of the places that form of creativity first sparked for me." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun retro review
