There's a game behind the many issues and flaws of Underworld Ascendant; we just don't know when (or if) we might see it one day.

Underworld: Ascendant is a very ambitious RPG from a well-seasoned staff that knows the genre. Unfortunately, there is so much that gets in the way of having a great time; a wasted potential from some talented individuals.

Bad ideas and bad errors, with glitches and bugs. The feeling is of a game not completed, with no polishing at all.

A sadly failed tribute to one of the greatest RPGs of all time, Underworld Ascendant is simply far too flawed to recommend to either fans of the original Ultima Underworld, or in-depth RPGs in general.

As a spiritual successor of the Ultima Underworld series, Underworld Ascendant fails in almost every way.The promising introduction is followed by a brisk quality drop. A wasted potential.

Underworld Ascendant is a buggy, repetitive, and boring mess of an RPG.

Simply put, the game seems unfinished and was likely rushed to market resulting in a horribly broken world that offers no incentive to return to it, even if future patches alleviate some of the myriad of issues.

The spiritual successor to Ultima had good intentions, but that may be the only good thing about it.

We hoped to get a spiritual successor to Ultima Underworld, but it turned out to be terrible mix of Dark Messiah and Thief, full of problems and bugs. This game is a complete mess, and it didn't deserve your attention at all.

Underworld Ascendant touches on something but never really grasps it. It doesn't utilise any of the improvements from its long absence from the industry and even falls flat compared to the game it is meant to be the successor of.
