Too Much Fighting

David A. Lessnau, Amazon
12 August 2003
  • Summary: This is exactly the type of game that I enjoy playing. And, for the first couple of weeks, I really did enjoy it. But, after that, the amount of fighting necessary to do ANYTHING started to grate. Essentially, you have to fight huge groups of ridiculously powerful enemies every time you go anywhere. In all, playing several hours every day, it took me almost two months to finish the game. On one hand, that's just too much effort.

Wizardry 8 - RPG or not?

Brian Edson Fenn, Amazon
15 December 2002
  • Summary: Wizardry 8 is a number-cruncher's dream. The sheer array of statistics, modifiers and choice in customising your character is presented in a way that makes it unintimidating, but easy to jump right in and customise your characters in the way that you want. If you like to micro-manage your party, then this is the game for you.

Something of a disappointment

Brian Libby "Gadfly", Amazon
13 March 2002
  • Summary: I did not follow the Wizardry series and did not plan to buy this one, but the magazine reviews were so good that I decided to get it. This game is big--you certainly get your money's worth in terms of play-time. The combat system works well (but too slowly, see below.) The plot is complex. There are many, many combinations of character races and types to choose from. The dialogue tree offers many possibilities.
