RPG Dot praises U5 Lazarus

RPG Dot has posted a glowing 10/10 <a href=http://www.rpgdot.com/index.php?hsaction=10053&ID=1224>review[/url] of Ultima 5: Lazarus DS conversion. According to Corwin, it's a real deal Ultima game, so you might want to check it out.

I think by now that the discerning reader will have realised that I really like this game. Perhaps it's because of the memories it evokes, but I don't think so. Ultima 5-Lazarus stands on its own as a monumental work of love by a dedicated team of primarily amateurs. No-one got paid to produce this and no-one is getting paid now, either. It's a FREE download. All you need to play it, is the original patched version of Dungeon Siege. This game is so complex and absorbing that little else on the market can come close. If all you want to do is run around killing things, then this is probably not the game for you. However, if you enjoy a detailed and thoughtful story chock full of real choices and consequences, characters with their own definite personalities, plenty of side quests, puzzles to solve and dragons to slay, then this might be just what you've been looking for. They say that they don't make them like they used to, but with Lazarus, they still do.​
Corwin's enthusiasm is forcing me to go and get a DS copy right now.

Thanks, Hazelnut
