Adventuring In Ultima V: Lazarus

Gamers Info has posted a review of Ultima V: Lazarus, a fan created Dungeon Siege mod and complete remake of Origin's Ultima V. Allowing players to experience old school dungeon crawling cloaked in the guise of a modern game engine, Gamers Info found UV:L to be a nostalgic and fun adventure.

From the review:

As with all the Ultima games Iíve played, you create a character and read through the background story. Once finished you come upon a gypsy who reads some tarot cards, upon which questions are posed to you. This gives you a basic alignment on how your avatar will act while traveling and interacting in the world around them. Youíll also meet up with old friends from the past, who will travel with you. Theyíll offer suggestions on various decision making objectives, which can be ignored if so desired. You are able to ask questions from the local population, that may give you further clues as well.

There is a difference in the magic system that Lazarus uses, which may confuse you at first. Before you are allowed to cast any spells, you must have the necessary reagents that make up a spell. When you open up your spell book, below that will be an area that carries all of your magic supplies. If you donít keep an eye on that from time to time, youíll get a rude awakening when you cast a spell. You can buy these reagents from stores as well as harvesting them from the surrounding terrain, once located. Some of these reagents are rare and may not be sold in all shops, so be careful on what spell you cast.
