What Gamespot Users have to say about Wizardry 8

  • Rating:9

    It may be the last in its series, but Wizardry 8 stays true to its tradition of impressive scope and depth in gameplay.

    The Wizardry series is a much storied one. The first game was supposed to be just another dungeon crawl, but the developer SirTech had highlighted one of the deficits of this early proto-form of the RPG genre: lack of en... Read Full Review

    Old school classic RPG!

    I actually replay this game every few years, and it's fun each time with a different party makeup. If you like tactics, stat building, and general RPG fun I suggest you check this game out. GS gave it a 9.1, and users ... Read Full Review

    A timeless classic that lives on well past it's initial release.

    It's true that Wizardry 8 is well past it's prime time in the new realm of Vista and the many high powered graphical games. But for hardcore, nostalgic RPG loving players if you ever happen to run across this little gem... Read Full Review

    The finale of the series pretty much does everything right.

    Even though Sir-Tech closed its doors after this game, they will always be able to smile for this landmark of a RPG they developed. This is the only true oldschool RPG to date that successfully integrates a modern 3d eng... Read Full Review

    Yet another forgotten, under-rated RPG that had the substance but didn't have the marketing.

    This game is great. Awesome turn-based strategy combat, innovative party system, great character creation system with TONS of races and classes to pick from, also you can multiclass... it's just a lot of fun. It's a bi... Read Full Review

    The best RPG series goes out with a bang!

    Big, but clear enough objectives and tasks that you don't get bored (unlike Wiz 7). Great replay ability, fantastic variations, great graphics & sound for it's day and the best gaming system every made for RPG's. T... Read Full Review

    A truly great experience that RPG fans should try.

    This was the first Wizardry game I had ever played and I believe, unfortunately, the last in the series. The game play style of wizardry 8 is done in a first person perspective. There is quite a large selection of sp... Read Full Review

    The greatest RPG I have played...

    ...well, except for Jade Empire, which tied. Now, on to what I like about it. This game, it has so many choices and things you can do. You can create the whole party yourself instead of premade NPCs. This is great;... Read Full Review
