It looks similar to Dark Souls, but far less polished. Has anyone played it?
I have heard good things of Dark Souls, but no. The Wizardry franchise has been around for a long time. Long before the guys that made Dark Souls was around. This Wizardry... is more of a "let us try to make a quick buck of a once great franchise name!", by the looks of it.
It's not a difficult game (unlike Dark series that I heard off). Personally I found this a bit addictive despite not many things to do. While lots of ppl keep talking about it not being Wizardry, I think it's the way the Japanese perceive what Wizardry is. (random stats when leveling up, dungeon crawl, etc.)
