I have been a big fan of Ultima series for 17 years. Ultima Online was the greatest part of my years in gaming and I am so pleased to see Lord British creating a new installment in the series. I'm not going to go into much detail here, these are my opinions and everyone is entitled. Some of these opinions are a comparison to the greatest MMO that ever lived, Ultima Online, so may be a little biased. Not open world/zoning. When I play a online game, especially a RPG, I want to be apart of a living world. I don't get that with SotA. I feel like I'm playing a single player game with the option to invite friends to play with me, much like LAN or a 2 player game. Crafting. I love it. Harvesting. OMGOSH NO Building plots. No. Just no. I want to be able to have my house way up on a hill where the sun shines in my windows and I can see the ocean from my balcony. Combat. Decking. Nothing wrong with combat really. But the deck crap, well it's crap. Pvp. What pvp? No danger of other players. Lost interest at that. Graphics are outdated but I'm not complaining about this. The way the graphics are right now is great for a crowd funded game and I know it will be polished in the future but...most indie games with the smallest budget have as good or better graphics than some triple A games. The dynamic lighting is pretty good though especially when you look off into the distance of the mountains or forests. Everything else that I have experienced while testing SotA since R2 was great and enjoyed it and most of all the people (some old friends) are the best part of my experience. I'm not saying SotA isn't a great game. Some people enjoy the unique style of games like it. I have been looking for a game like UO, not a clone but something that gave me the feeling that I was living in a real world where there are no rules, I'm not told where to go, risking my life to gather supplies for myself and others and so forth. SotA doesn't deliver, not even close to what UO, in it's short time was able to. I won't be playing SotA sadly. I want to say good luck Lord British and to the rest of the development team and thank you for all the great years you have given me with Ultima.
