This chapter of the DVD highlights the game’s gorgeous, Unreal-engine powered environments.

    You know I wonder if there would have been a major competition between UX and WoW for the MMO market.

    Also it would seem that the Ultima series was close to beating several major games to the market except they failed in some way:
    U8/Diablo – incomplete and lacking sufficient QA to make the jumping actually fun and easier to analyze
    U9/Morrowind – potentially more immersive, but buggy, crashy, incomplete, and with insufficient time to build a game with a well-constructed and executed plot
    UX/WoW – failed to be released (may or may not have been ready before WoW was released) but beats WoW graphically
