Great for new players, nothing for existing players,
This review is from: Ultima Online: Lord Blackthorn's Revenge (Video Game)
I would agree with the original reviewer for new players to Ultima Online, but for existing players, Lord Blackthorn's Revenge reeks of profiteering on the part of EA/OSI. Something of a slap in the face for people, like myself, who bought Third Dawn because they were told that it was the only way to get to Ilshenar, the only truly new thing that the expansion brings is new art and music for the game.
Players who did not get Third Dawn will no doubt appreciate being able to have access to Ilshenar in the 2d client and although it is moderately priced, there is very little in the way of new material for those existing players who already hand over their money monthly to EA. A good deal for players new to the game, but only for the most avid existing fans.
