Wizardry 8

Just RPG
19 October 2003
  • Excerpt: I was surprised a few months back when the Wizardry demo was released. I played the demo, and had such a good time, I quit playing it because I did not want to ruin my experience with the final game. Now, after countless hours of the end product, how did Wizardry live up to my initial impressions? If you read most other reviews and fan sites around the Net, you will read that this game is an RPG classic already, and that the game is perfect in all respects.

Wizardry 8

The Gamers Temple
27 March 2003
  • Excerpt: Wizardry might just well be one of the longest running series in computer gaming.  The 8th installment in the series comes in a 3D graphics wrapper, but at its heart it is true to its classic role-playing roots.  While many of today's RPGs tend to be action/role-playing hybrids, Wizardry 8 harkens back to the RPG old school of phased combat and saving rolls.

  • Excerpt: I was on the fence about whether or not to tackle this game. Wizardry 8 is yet another PC sequel (would somebody like to do something original that doesn't suck for the PC please) and yet another Role Playing Game. But I really like a good RPG and I remember playing one of the Wizardry games from the Dark Ages. You know, way back before the Internet taught us the joys of community gaming.

  • Excerpt: Sir-Tech, which is known for quality titles like the Wizardry and the Jagged-Alliance series returns with the final chapter in the Wizardry saga. It takes place in an alternate reality, which is a mixture of medieval magic and high-tech gadgets. When the planets were created the cosmic lords they used 3 spheres-like stones which all had their special task, being the Astral Dominae (life), the Chaos Molarae (change) and the Destiny Dominus (knowledge).

  • Excerpt: Veteran role-playing game (RPG) enthusiasts will realize it's been twenty years since the first Wizardry computer game--and ten years since the last. Now, Wizardry 8 – in all likelihood the final game in the coveted fantasy series -- is set to cast a spell on PC players once again. So, was it worth the wait?

Game Over Online
21 January 2002
  • Excerpt: A good friend of mine, Tommy G., has been a big player of the Wizardry series since game one. Personally, I’ve played a sparse selection of them, maybe numbers 1, 2, and 6 - something like that – I can only specifically remember completing the second one. He’s playing the most recent in the series now, the 8th, and we’ve had a prolonged email exchange about what he thinks of it.

  • Summary: "Pøíznivci klasických RPG by si nemìli nechat ujít dobrodružné RPG s názvem Wizardry 8. J e to pravdìpodobnì poslední díl legendární RPG sérii Wizardry od spoleènosti Sir-Tech. Dìj hry navazuje na jednu z variant konce dílu pøedešlého. A není to zrovna hezký zaèátek. Hlavní padouch se zmocní dùležitého artefaktu a vaším úkolem bude vypátrat, kam zmizel a zastavit jeho úmysly. ...

  • Summary: Série Wizardry má na PC poměrně dlouhou tradici a vysloužila si v jejím průběhu dobré jméno a spoustu věrných fanoušků. Sedmý díl je kupříkladu některými zdroji dokonce označován za nejdelší RPG všech dob a také jedno z nejlepších. Nemám s ním bohužel tolik zkušeností, abych to mohl potvrdit či vyvrátit, ale to je stejně jen tak na okraj. Dnes tu máme díl osmý, „zatím“ poslední.

PC GURU
22 December 2003
  • Excerpt: A Wizardry 8 a belső nézetes, csapatalapú, körökre osztott szerepjátékok mára halott műfajának egyik utolsó képviselőjeként 2001-ben, egy kereken húszéves sorozat befejezéseként jelent meg: a fejlesztő Sir-Tech azóta bezárta kapuit, a Wizardry-saga ezzel teljes lezárást kapott. Méghozzá nem is akármilyent!
  • Pros: + Tökéletes fejlődésrendszer, + „Old school” hangulat, + Szabadság, felfedezés
  • Cons: - Sok töltelékharc, - Nem túl szép, - Nem lesz folytatás...
