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.

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.

Oh Steam, thank you!

Wizardry 8 is a wizened (ha) old game, having come out in 2001. That said, the old game has lost none of its charms. There is one race short of a dozen playable ones, and fifteen classes. Each race offers its own little perks, and each class has amazing abilities and powers. Combine this with the plethora of items and magic, and you'll be experimenting with different combinations over and over again.
That being said, it is an old game. The graphics are pixellated (go cry in Skyrim if that's what you care about, you horrid wretch) and the control system is outdated (I spent fifteen minutes pressing WASD until I realized it was the arrow keys that moved the party). And it has the "old school difficulty": if your party isn't properly made or if you're missing a member (IE: someone who can tank or cast spells), you're going to get mercilessly butchered by the first boss creature, repeatedly.

I'd recommend this game to all of my friends. It's amazing, it's fun, it's inviting, and it's dynamic. It's an age-old, forgotten gem that has lost none of its charm.

TL;DR: It's a better version of Legends of Grimrock

PS: Hey Steam, why not release other good, old games like Betrayal in Krondor/Antara while you're at it?

In my oppinion, one of the best rpg's in the world. Great story and enviroments. I had a very good time playing this game as a kid ... and I still do it sometimes from nostalgia. There is so much to try ... and so much to find ... and theese things make a game real special. Wizardry 8 is one of a kind.

For lovers of RPG's Wizardry 8 is definately worth checking out. I never played 6, played a bit of 7 but 8 is something special. If you have fond memories of the might and magic series, especially perhaps 6-8, and other ,more recent ones like Legend of Grimrock for example ( although that has battles in real-time) then wizardry 8 might scratch that 'rpg' itch.

It's a game where you control 6 characters, all highly customizable with several races, classes and a whole pool of skills and perks and go adventuring finding loot, exploring, levelling up and engaging in turn based battles. In fact even picking your party can be a daunting task with so many choices to make that can affect your chances especially the further into the game you go.

A word of warning though. This is a hard game. It can be unforgiving and frustrating even in the early stages which may involve a lot of running away and going back until you beat a particualr enemy or enemies. Indeed, at points there are a lot of enemies, sometimes unfairly so, and they come thick and fast where luck and frequent saves are sometimes the only way to progress. And, although i have no way of knowing how many hours i played this game ( but i would guess in excess of 50/60 hours) i never completed it. This is more due to the fact after upgrading my pc, the discs no longer worked and so it was put aside but never forgotten. Until now.

It's great it' has appeared on steam and i am looking forward to tackling it once again. If you have the time to invest in it; the patience to put up with some rage inducing losses; the vision to look past it's dated but functional graphics and the love of a deep, complex and involving rpg with great turn based mechanics and characters that actually have a personality and some great lines, then give Wizardry 8 a go.

One of the best computer RPG of all time. Unapologetically hard (in the typical Wizardry fashion), Wizardry VIII is one forgotten gem makes clearing of every level a satisfying player achievement that will make you rejoice the experience for years to come.

Old fashioned, bare bones, RPG. No hand holding, no stupid gimmicks, no boredom. One of the most addicting games I have played. It's very difficult and long. Awesome class builds. Very strategic turned based combat. Makes you feel good when overcomeing a goal. Not many games do that, especially these days.

I used to play Wizardry 8 as a kid a whole bunch, and when I saw it on steam again, I thought to myself "hmm, I remember liking this as a kid a lot. I wonder if it's still a good game, or is it just nostalgia..." And after 4 days and 38 hours, I still think it's an extremely good PC RPG.

The dialog, story, RPG system, voiceacting are all top notch. World is interesting, surprising and has loads of personality. Graphics, even though dated, still work in their own personal style, and have not become unclear, you can still instantly tell what everything is supposed to be, even from a bit further away.

The biggest flaw this game has, in my humble opinion, is the dated engine. It inherits the typical early 2000 engine limitations and quirks. You will probably get stuck sometimes, you will get crushed by physics objects (death by crates!) and you will get stuck behind patrolling friendly NPCs, who are surpsingly headstrong in walking in front of you slowly, or walking through you, pushing you along and frustrating you. Trynton is horrible for this very reason sometimes.

All in all, even though it's a bit dated game, and even if you've never played it, but like PC RPGs, it's a really good pickup.

One of the best CRPGs in history. An absolute classic with immersive gameplay, tactical turn-based combat, countless race-class combinations and EPIC voice acting.

I had a copy of Wiz 8 back when it first came out, thanks to my dad. I was so enthralled whenever I watched him play it because of the gameplay and the character-creation. When I played it after I got older and was able to better grasp the mechanics of the game, I was still in love.
The first part of most RPGs, character creation, is an experience itself. With many races and classes to choose from, there is plenty of variety because you not only create 1 character, but you create 6. The races range from the Tolkienesque races to some really cool and unique playable races (Dracon. Faerie, Lizardman, Mook to name a few)There are plenty of different classes to choose from also. Developing your characters throughout the game is also great. There are many spells to use too.
The game plays like many of the old school RPGs like M&M in a FPS type. Just watch the video to get the idea. Wiz 8 was the last of a dying breed when it came out, but I personally enjoy the gameplay. Combat is turnbased while exploring is free roam.
The story of Wiz 8 is actually pretty fascinating and proves to be enagaging at times. I'll leave it there and let it unfold for you because I had the story spoiled for me and I will never forget it. I wish it wasn't spoiled.
All in all, I can praise and review and talk about how fun Wiz 8 is til I'm blue in the face. For 10 bucks its a steal (comes fully patched and the graphics are improved compared to the original release.) considering to get a CD copy is about 50 bucks. (They don't make it anymore and not many were made). Get it, play it, and enjoy the experience of Wizardry 8.

This is a game for you Magi-punk lovers. while you are confined to one planet, Mages in space is a ridiculously fun idea.

Designing a party of 6 right from the get go is also a very nice feature that a lot of games don't have these days, and it which lets you get into playing as your characters.

The game is a bit hard early on while you learn the controls and do your grinding, potentially learning what makes a bad party, (like one without a dedicated healer.)

I highly reccomend going into the controls and switching things to WASD, because arrow keys are agonizing to use. and it took me a while to find that holding right click let's you mouse control instead of the Numpad. once you get used to that, this game get's amazing.

The last of a fantastic line of classical PC RPGs that stretch back to 1981. The Wizardry series was a founding father of the RPG genre and many great franchises of today, including Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Might and Magic, drew significant inspiration from it.

Wizardry 8 takes the wide array of charachters and classes and challenging combat of its predecessors and places it into a new, for the series, 3D environment that, even after a decade, is still pleasing to the eye.

Woven into this 3D world is a story line that is both unique and engaging. The story takes place on a classic medieval fantasy planet that is now host to a range of alien factions vying diplomatically and militarily for control over artificats that will grant godhood.

This story drives gameplay both at the tactical level, with your party members choosing between swords, spells, guns, and technology, and at the strategic level, as you decide who to ally with and who to oppose among 2 major factions and a host of minor players.

These choices affect gameplay in a way that puts modern AAA RPG developers to shame. Major choices set you on a road towards one of the game's various endings, but even these roads aren't set in stone as choices made with minor factions can alter your ultimate path.

While I would be remiss in not recommending players new to the series try out Wizardry 6 and 7 first, the reality is that Wizardry 8, with its 3D environment and epic tale, stands head and shoulders above its predecessors and is perfectly enjoyable as a stand-alone experience.

One of the best old school first person dungeon crawlers ever made. This game is seriously fun for someone like me who enjoys keeping it old school when it comes to gaming. The little quips your party makes add to the entertainment value of the game. If you enjoy old RPGs than you have to play this game and the other Wizardry titles.

Do you like stats? Do you like skills? Do you like spells? Do you like adding stats/skillpoints/spells to customize your characters? Then play this game.

Note: The game is old and doesn't contain arrows that points to where you need to go.

I was introduced to this game via the Night Dive Bundle (Thanks Bundlestars!). I was originally planning to get it simply for Systemshock 2, but this wonderful game came along with it. after doing some research, i found out just how loved it was, so I tried it for myself.

Basic, spoiler free tldr Plotline: Create your party, grab 3 artifacts and stop evil dude from doing the same, whist exploding everyone and everything that stands in your way of saving the world.

The plot is pretty much put to the wayside in my own opinon, but it is interesting enough to be noteable.

At first, It can be a bit daunting for players used to newer RPGs, but everything is very well streamlined when it comes to the User Interface and inventories. That is, once you get used to it.


Combat:
Basic lowdown: up to six PC's and two followers fighting together against enemies, using ranged, melee, or magic, with enemies in a 3d space. Works in a similar way to the older FFs, and is very fun at as well as aggrivating in earlier stages.
The game spices up this style of combat by applying the strategies of positioning and formations, which are vital for both staying alive and dealing damage. The enemies have a bad tendency to be either mediocore or brutal, crushing your party to a pulp at times. But, the combat remains rather balanced throughout, and exciting.

Characters and Character Progression:
Much like Oblivion or Morrowind, each character has Basic Stats that can only be raised through leveling up, and Skill Stats that can be leveled both through gaining levels or by use in combat. Creating a character that fits his or her role into the party is absolutely esssential, and if not created properly, can permanently cripple the party. To survive basically, you need at least one Melee character in the front, a Ranged in the back, along with a caster to support them. Character classes basically divvy up the general roles into more specifc ones, with some classes unable to use certain weapons, you must choose carefully.
The combinations of both races and classes, and the distribution of stat points allows for immense variety in playstyles, from the practical to the ridiculous.
Probably my favorite thing about the progression is seeing how far my party has come from the beginning. From my caster being barely able to cast basic magic to being a Lord of Death on the battlefield, erasing damage to party members and boosting their stats to ridiculous levels.
Another thing that stands out is the wide variety of Voice packs that each character can posess, and can be changed at any time. From laid back to the edge of sanity, sultry or sneaky, your choice. My favorites are the Male and Female Chaotic voices. These add much needed soul to the game, as well as some laughs.

Graphics:
The game looks "Good Enough" for the modern age of games. Thankfully, with programs included such as Nglide, the game can run on just about anything. Laggy areas can be prevalent, even on modern, top of the line PC's, but usually, it will run at a glorious 60fps. What makes it even better, is that Steam Cloud saving for some odd reason works perfectly with this game, and the game's saves can flawlessly transfer from computer to computer.

Stuff I do not like about this game:
This game is hands down the best of this specifc genre that I have ever played, but it still has its flaws.

-quests and objectives can be rather ambigous, and without the help of online guides, some of these can be very frustrating.
-Crafting recipies are never revealed in game, which can be agrivating unless you have them online.
-Travelling the world can be rather slow, as it is quite expansive, and portal spells can only be unlocked later in the game.
-Saving is a bit awkward, having to go into the options menu every time can get annoying.
-Starting off on the wrong foot party wise can lead to a near impossible playthrough.

Otherwise, I heartily recommeded to those wishing to sink a lot of time into a great, easily scaleble game.

One of the best RPGs I've ever played. Vast options for character/party building, tons of personality (especially the hilarious voice acting,) large areas to explore that actually have interesting content in them, highly strategic (and frequently difficult) combat... Wiz8 just rules.

I tried 6 and 7 after this, but found 8 to be the only one that was palatable to me. If you want to try an old-school first person party-based RPG, but are afraid of the obtuse interface, this game does a great job of making that format accessible.

This should be the standard for open-world RPG's. Considering its age, it's still exciting, fresh and gorgeously designed. The races and classes all feel different and unique without any one class being "the best".

The Elder Scrolls may have taken the title for controlling a single character, but when you have 8 characters that you've developed, had killed or maimed repeatedly, and who all feel unique, there isn't another feeling like it

This game is wonderful old school rpg, with a variety of classes, spells and abilities to personalize each character you have. The levels include usage of skills and experience. The combat is turn based. The controls are easy to learn. The graphics are good, the audio plays well. There is no glitches, lag or crashes. I enjoy the freedom to choose where to go and which quests and npcs to bring along. The map is fun and gets more challanging as you go, bigger tougher foes. The is no monty hall game the drops are decent but not overkill. The plotline is welldone and consistant with the wizardry series. If you are looking for a good game to enjoy hours over hours-this is it! its a 9 out of 10!

I've never played any of the Wizardry games before, and I actually found out about them from Todd Howard mentioning the series and playing it before he took hold at Bethesda. I can see relations between Wizardry 8 and Morrowind (the first TES game involving Todd Howard in development) and it's really interesting. It seems like a Fallout/Morrowind/Daggerfall mixture with it's own touch. Only playing three hours, I've found this to be really addicting. When killing, it feels more rewarding than most RPG games that I've played. I really feel like character progression is more refined in this game, especially for it's time. The game to be honest, is pretty hard if you don't know what you're doing. Essentially trial/error is what you have to do if you don't watch gameplay or not know what you're doing. I've found having a priest, tank, ranger or two, and a bard is standard. Bard's lute helps out loads and having the extra ranger if you choose, helps in sticky situation when your spellcaster(s) and ranger can only attack the far-away enemy. Overall, this game is great, I'd definitely pay the full $10.00 if it wasn't on sale. It's worth it if you like RPG games.
