Ultima VI for the C64 is a remarkable piece of software. Somehow the conversion team back then managed to squeeze a 3 megabyte game into the 64k of that ancient system - without sacrifying anything of the story or loosing its depth. Of course graphically it is rather poor, the soundtrack is reduced to just one song and the amount of disk swapping is enourmous but all in all they did a very impressive job with this one. Box and content are identical with other initial releases.
