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.

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graphics are pixellated (go cry in Skyrim if that's what you care about, you horrid wretch) and the control system is outdated (I spent fifteen minutes pressing WASD until I realized it was the arrow keys that moved the party).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.

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.

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.

After playing one hour I really like this game a lot and am very glad I got it. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect but my first impression is a positive one that reminds me of the first D&D games that inspired the "Legend of Grimrock" style of game. It also has a much more open world dungeon exploring feel to it that reminds me a lot of the original Asheron's Call that I played endlessly. I really, really liked so far that you can adjust combat/monster movement speed to your liking as well as switch between 'phased' and 'continuous' combat modes.

I liked that there are a nice wide variety of classes and races to choose from when creating your party before setting off. Because there were plenty of combinations to choose and create from, I felt that I was able to create my own distinct party that was unique to myself while still feeling well balanced for the game. I look forward to spending hours in the future exploring what is to come in the world! Hooray RPGs!
