A New Wizardry for a New Generation

The universe is in the throes of violent upheaval and change. Vast and mysterious forces are preparing for the final confrontation. A small group of heroes from distant lands must plunge into the heart of the maelstrom, to uncover long-forgotten secrets, and bring about a new era. Should they succeed, they will gain the powers of the gods themselves. If they fail, countless worlds will fall into the grip of darkness.

Wizardry 8 raises the standard for fantasy role-playing with a vengeance. Prepare yourself for a new level of excitement, immersiveness and depth that made role-playing games one of the best-selling, best-loved genres of all time.

Prepare to experience the culmination of a prestigious RPG series. Enter a vast world of intrigue and wonder. Unravel a gripping, non-linear storyline. Battle your way to victory using your swords, your magic, and your wits. Compete with rivals or align with allies as you struggle to ascend to the Cosmic Circle. Take the battle to the dreaded Dark Savant in Wizardry 8, the phenomenal conclusion to the Dark Savant trilogy, one of the most extensive and challenging stories ever told in classic role-playing games!

Wizardry 8 is a must-own CRPG. It is on its own, the last Wizardry game of the Dark Savant trilogy made by Sir-Tech as well as being the last within the official series (the license was given to game developers in Japan who made their own Wizardry games such as Tale of the Forsaken Land which have their own story and universe in comparison to that of 8).

The gameplay itself gives players either a turn-based approach or a more active but still turn-based take on combat. The game itself is a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi, pitting players against mundane enemies such as a human spell-caster and giant rats to more technological or magical enemies such as androids or demonic beast. Wizardry 8 offers a variety of customization to players based on the races and classes to choose from. This means one can play with a normal party such as a dwarf fighter, elf mage, and a human thief to something a bit more diverse such as Hobbit ninja's and Felpurr samurai's. Not only is there a variety in races (such as human, rawulf, dracon, mook, etc.) and classes to pick (such as bishop, priest, ninja, alchemist, etc.) but the game also offers a variety of equipment to use, each with their own advantages and restrictions.

The story of Wizardry pits the player's party against the forces of the Dark Savant for whatever reason (using an imported save where you went with an important NPC to Dominus, following a prophecy you'd first hear a bit from the Trynnie merchant, the game does have different intros based on what saves you use, be it imported saves from Wizardry 7 or using an entirely new party). Ultimately (without trying to spoil too much), the story would lead to players trying to gain a power that the Savant himself desires.

The only con to Wizardry 8 as far as I know is that trying to play it off Steam with a mod (only tried the Christian Coder mod) doesn't seem to work for some reason.

If you are a sort of person who is interested in playing a good CRPG that is worth the time and money spent, Wizardry 8 is one to go with.

This is a classic cRPG (Computer RPG) from long ago (early 2000!). A fantastic first person adventure, and a game not for the feint of heart. If you yearn for a game with little to no handholding, a game thats going to frustrate you with its overwhelming odds (seriously, 8 ♥♥♥♥ing Acidvines right after the monestary you dirty dirty game I am gonna kill you) but give you that sense of pure satisfaction when you stomp those bloody ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ mobs, this is the game for you.

I have 100's if not 1000's of hours in this game (before it was on steam). This is, IMHO, the very best game in the genre. No one has ever even come close (exept possibly Wizardy 7). New games in the genre are ok (Grimrock 1 and 2), but they have nothing on the deapth of this game...

This was the first Wizardry game I ever picked up some 13 years ago, and I still have my boxed copy around somewhere. It can be a little confusing for new players (the manual helps a lot) and some parts are a bit grindy, but the sense of adventure and exploration combined with your characters progress while levelling, make this a definite recommendation for RPG fans.

Roughly 100 hours played, years before Steam was released.
