Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress by Sierra
Online is the second game in the legendary Ultima RPG
series. Although it's not a bad game, I personally think
it is the worst game in the series...
of the game is to seek out and destroy the evil
enchantress Minax. This game is quite short once you
have worked out what to do and it doesn't have the same
Ultima feel as the other games. I'm guessing this may
have something to do with the fact that Origin didn't
release this game.
Unfortunately, the game looks and plays quite poorly,
and it's quite tricky to get your character up and
running. It also takes place on earth at different
historical periods, which sets it apart from the other
I'd only recommend this one to hardcore Ultima fans as
it's quite fiddly, glitchy and not as enjoyable as the
rest of the series...
Don't ask me what's
going on here!
Ah - looks like Minax
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I followed some walkthroughs and poked about in the code
to boost my character's health and money.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The final battle with Minax is awkward as she keeps
teleporting around the castle. Eventually she dies once
you have hit her enough times. The screen starts to
break up, piece by piece and the words 'MINAX IS
DEAD!! ALL HER WORKS SHALL DIE!' appear at the
bottom of the screen. The final scene shows our hero
flying over the land in a space rocket. A final message
appears at the bottom of the screen which reads 'YOU
HAVE DESTROYED MINAX!!! YOUR DEED WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR
YEARS. THANKS FOR PLAYING ULTIMA II, NOW SOLVE ......
THE WIZARD AND THE PRINCESS ......'.
