Summary: it's like a older style of Elder Scrolls but you can have more then one person in your party, is has a good section of Races to pick from, and good looking Pictures you want to go with your Charecter
Summary: I'm a big wizardry fan, and this one is actually one of my favorites. Good old turn-based combat, fun leveling characters, interesting characters and GREAT voice acting, awesome story. Basically, I can gush about the game for a long time. Its fun - simple as that.
Summary: This is an RPG for intelligent people. All the people complaining about this game are the same people who need the instant gratification of an action RPG. I've read some of the one star reviews, and some of them, really sound like the people never even played the game.
Summary: The title of this review holds two meanings: one, if you are not a hardcore, old school rpger you might not like this game, and the other is that the rest of you might lose your very soul to this game. This is an wonderful, story driven game with a huge enviroment to play in.
Summary: This game has details. Lots of details. Apparently there are too many details for some players to handle (e.g., the one reviewer who said managing the inventories of eight characters was too complicated -- something I find a true joy). This isn't Baldur's Gate, or Morrowind, or Icewind Dale.
Summary: I have to be honest, I'm a newcomer to the Wizardry series, and I'd heard about it from my RPG-nut friend Daniel. He had played Wizardry Gold and had quite a few complaints about the game, for instance the sort of useless and annoying skills like 'swim' and the annoying skills like 'karma' or...
Summary: This review is more for the rpg players out there. A current trend in a lot of rpg games is to become more Diablo-like. It has action that pulls you in, but becomes lackluster after finding beating the snot out of a goblin while you are at level 2 is very similar to beating the snot out of a goblin...
Summary: The variable turn-based combat is fantastic with genuine tactical and strategic options. If you liked Jagged Aliiance, you'll like the combat in this game. This is not a game you can just casually play, and anyone who says the game is "too hard" should be playing Diablo 2 instead.
Summary: The first Wizardry game hooked me on CRPGs back in the early 80's, and I have played most of the major and some of the minor releases since then. As good as many of the new games (particulary the Black Isle and BioWare games)are, it has been years since I was as immersed in a game as I was in Wiz8.
Summary: After seeing some of the negative reviews I just had to comment. First this is a turn based game. That means that combat isn't in real time but each character within range gets a shot at their opponent based on their speed and then the game pauses.
