    Yes, but laggy.

    UO has a 10 year old network code which is ping reliant, so you really see a difference in gameplay from 60 to 200 ms.

    It is though playable up to 200-300ms.

     

    If you need to patch the client though it may take some time on dial up these days.

    *waxes old school*

    When I first started playing UO I was on dialup.

    haven't played in close to 2 years, have no clue about Kingdom Reborn. It was harder and harder toplay UO on dialup with the continual buildup of code upon the games base.

    Certainly can never play PvP.

    You should be OK running the 2D client, I wouldn't want to try the KR client on dial-up though.

    I played UO for a couple of years on dial-up with no major problems.  The only thing that really stood out was using a mount - I usually walked because my connection couldn't keep up with fast movement, and riding appeared more like teleporting in short hops.

    Dialup with the original 2d client? Yes. Kingdom Reborn? Hells no.
