Hey hey, I too had it on my list

note: U9 probably is the odd man out when I place Skyrim in my revamped top 10,

U9 has the basic contemporary game play dynamics that would make the game playable today. I can't really remember the story but I had fun going around the world and exploring. I too bought this game on release day only to realize, like you, that my rig was totally inadequte for the job, fortunaly back in those days you could take the game back. 2 rigs later I got the game and had a blast.

However, by the time I was playing the game, I knew it was an Ultima game in name only but I was okay with that. If GOG ever gets the nerve to sell this game with all the proper patches, I will buy and replay. Now will the game hold up for a complete replay??? I don't know - but if GOG ever gets U9, I'll give it a go.
