UO: Age of Shadows Review @Boomtown

Boomtown has reviewed the latest Ultima Online expansion, age of Shadows. The final rating is 7/10 and this is the conclusion:
Electronic Arts have gone to great lengths to make this expansion really give the game something to attract new players whilst still appeasing their existing fans. The result is a game that looks and sounds out of step with the times. This new expansion does nothing to try and solve the problems associated with Ultima Online such as lag and server crashes but tries to change some basics of the game which has angered some of the longer standing players. Any hopes that EA had for this expansion winning new players over are sadly unlikely to come through.

The game looks dated even with the 3D view, it sounds dated, its slow and clunky. The game is compelling and has a large, ready-made, user base and a vibrant online world for players to immediately step into.
