Like previous Ultimas, this map is completely open. It follows a linear plot at first, but eventually opens up about 10% in. It doesn't have quite the moral lecture of Ultima 4 or 6, but they're still there (steal enough items and see what your party members do.) There's TONS of items, mostly take-able, LOTS of unique characters with plenty of dialogue, and fun miniplots and side-jobs.
The overall plot is simple: a new moral doctrine is rampantly taking over Britannia, replacing the old 8-virtue system with its new thought. All the people you meet are either for, against or indifferent to it, but nearly everyone has something to say about it. It's your job to investigate the religion, wrapped around a murder, and restore harmony to the land.
I've replayed this game multiple times although I've only actually completely beat it once. I just enjoy walking around the world and moving pixels around. You will most likely need exult to run it on your modern PC, check out exult.com. Like VDMSound for dosbox games, it is specifically designed for Ultima VII to make it play right.
PS - Did I forget to mention the midi soundtrack? It's utterly beautiful.
