Ultima X Odyssey, An Odyssey Never Taken [Game Delver]

An article about the famed MMO that was cut down before its time.

Excerpt: "I was reading a Massively article yesterday about free MMO soundtracks. At the very end of it (almost as an afterthought) there was a link to some music from Ultima X Odyssey, a game that my head has long forgotten, but my heart still longs for. I haven’t been able to tear my ears away.

Like the game that never was, the music is a sweeping glance at yet another world of epic fantasy.

It saddens me to think that Ultima Online has been so wasted by its corporate handlers. Instead of a single sequel of any quality, we’ve had two cancelled ones with great potential. Instead of a hope for a continued legacy of one of the most important games of all time and certainly one of the top three most important MMORPGs of all time, we have a messy relic of the mid-90′s that has no influence or real importance left." (PC, Ultima X: Odyssey)
