Legends of Valour description

Little known fantasy RPG on the engine series Ultima Underworld. Your hero must save his cousin Sven who disappeared in the city Mittedorf'e oppressed by a cruel tyrant.

The game is in first person, the move is almost discrete, graphics are very beautiful, and the places we will visit, are quite diverse and numerous: there will be city streets and dark dungeons. But the main advantages, if I may say so, the game three.

First, a very "powerful" character generation system. Care needs to be taken not only to its characteristics (there are plenty, and since our hero is quite an abstract character, even gender, we can choose arbitrarily), but even to the exterior because of shifty looking man NPC will not help, and for different segments of the population of the city the word "suspicious" has a different meaning.

Secondly, the amazing interactivity of the world, causing nostalgic smile to remember the game series Ultima. The city does not cease to live either day or night, every inhabitant (and there's thousands of them!) – quite a special, independent person who is living on their own routine. Additional faktorami "full immersion" in the atmosphere of the game can be considered the nonlinearity of the gameplay and the presence of a fairly large number of guilds, to which the character can join (in fact, the choice of the Guild of our future path largely depends).

Thirdly, of course, the size and diversity of locations that has already been mentioned, the abundance of available spells, interesting quests (but the dialogue, alas, with the same Ultima to compare) and the overall "liveliness" of the world.

So for fans of old RPGs and especially novels Ultima Underworld the game is suitable at the time, and almost certainly they'll love it.
