Perhaps best described as "light Ultima", Times of Lore is a pleasant RPG set in the land of Albareth. You play either a Knight, a Barbarian, or a Valkyrie on a quest to search for the magical artifacts that will restore High King Valwyn to power. The game is played in real-time, with adventure-style interface (Use, Talk, Drop, Equip etc.) similar to the Ultima series. Overall, it's a fun, short RPG that's not innovative in any way, but it does everything well and is a fun diversion from "heavy" RPGs, and does a much better job at introducing RPG newbies to the genre than the overly simplified Tangled Tales which was based on the same engine.
