So i'm looking for a recent game that plays like the good old Wizardry game, or the most recent Etrian Odyssey for DS. A game with good graphics that came out in the last 3 or 4 years max.

THX !

like wizardy is ahrd to do and be recent but the elder scrolsl easily shares a few hands with the wizardy series.. especially TES chapter II: daggerfall and its prequel arena

If you have a DS you could get The Dark Spire, it's hardcore dungeon crawling at it's best.

Not many rpgs these days like Wizardry bud..

But I will list some rpgs that I enjoyed... as I am a HUGE Wizardry fan (one of my all time fav series). They are not just like Wizardry, but as a hue fan of Wizardry, these are ones I enjoyed.

- The Witcher

- Dragon Age

- KOTOR

- Divine Divinity

- Gothic1-3

- Risen

- Drakensang

- Planscape Torment

- Bladurs Gate 1-2

- Neverwinter Nights 1-2


- Daggerall/Morrowind/Arena

Those are some of the rpgs I have enjoyed since my Wizardry days ;)

Dude. This thread has nothing to do with Commandos. Go make your own thread instead of hijacking someone else's. As for games similar to Wizardry? You're going to have a hard time finding games that are akin to it. The most that comes to mind is Temple of Elemental Evil that you can buy off of GoG.com.

I don't think there were any party based dungeon crawler RPG's the likes of Wizardry released for the PC in the last 10 or so years. Honestly, you're much better off sticking with the classics (Eye of The Beholder series, the Might & Magic series etc.). The last games in that style that I can recall were Might & Magic IX (2002) & Wizards & Warriors (2000). Wizards & Warriors was designed by D.W. Bradley, the same guy who created the Wizardry games, and it features similar gameplay so you might enjoy it (if you can get hold of it that is, since I don't recall seeing it on any DD or retailer service; maybe eBay has a used copy for you).

Other than that, I can't think of any others and judging by the lack of pertinent replies in this thread I guess nobody else recalls any PC game in that style being released in the last 4-6 years (probably because there haven't been any).

I guess that - just like the CRpg genre - party based 1st person dungeon crawling is dead. Too bad, cause the genre offered more complex and engaging games than the current RPG's (or should I say "action" RPG's) do.
