I haven't done much with the Ultima series outside of Exodus and Quest of the Avatar. My most modern venture into gaming includes the original Playstation and a tiny bit of the Wii. That being said...
I was hoping that the controls would be a little more like the original Tomb Raider. I really disliked having to control the camera in addition to the character and that they seemed to be disconnected. Is this common with more recent games? [I'm on an Atari board here, anything Halo, WoW, Call of Duty is all lost on me] Will a playstation-like controller be possible at some point? What recommendations do you have for playing PC-based games?
How will the fighting take place if it isn't turn-based? If in single-player mode will you be able to assemble a part like in Ultima III or IV?
Thank you for your patience and excuse my ignorance of most video games developed in the last 15 years.
