After the surprise encounter with Blackthorn at Samhayne's house, there is a cut scene showing the Avatar being thrown in to a jail cell. After being tossed in to the cell by a wyrmguard, the Avatar knocks over a skeleton, then turns to see the guard closing the solid wooden door on him. However, once the game resumes after the cut scene, the door is *barred*, not wooden, and there is no trace of the skeleton. See more »

The absolute worse ending possible
16 April 2016 | by DilbertW01See all my reviews

This game was the worst ending to any game series. It is the worst. The storyline is written as if all the other games never happened. It was buggy as all get out and was initially unplayable. If you want a detailed explanation of how bad of a betrayal to the fans this is, go to YouTube. Do a search on 'Spoony Ultima 9'. He does a good job of outlining what's wrong with this game, but I warn you that the language is very harsh. This game should have never been made. "What's a Paladin?" - the worse line in gaming history. After you watch Spoony, you will understand why that is the worse line. There were rumors of an Ultima X, but thankfully it never saw the light of day. I can only imagine what a disaster it would have been.
