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!

This is the legacy of Wizardry 8!

  • Explore a vast 3D world filled with action, magic and adventure. Wander through dark dungeons, lush landscapes, scorching volcanoes and even beneath the sea.
  • Create your own custom party of adventurers. Make a gnome gadgeteer, a lizardman fighter, a rawulf lord or even a faerie ninja. the possibilities are endless!
  • Choose a custom personality for each character and hear them speak over 100 lines of dialogue; Kindly or Chaotic, burly or surly-how your characters act is up to you.
  • Talk to dozens of intelligent characters. How you treat them determines whether they become powerful allies or deadly enemies.
  • Battle over 300 types of monsters in some of the most intense combat ever seen in an RPG. The unique auto-targeting system makes combat easy to learn, while the huge number of strategies adds unprecedented depth.
  • Advanced creature A.I. brings a new level of realism to RPGs. You don't just hunt the monsters-the roaming monsters hunt you.
  • Cast over 100 spells using a unique power-level system that guarantees that no spell ever becomes obsolete.

6 bats, 5 bugs, 12 slimes came down the corridor at once and took me like 15 mins to kill everything. Its D&D meets Legends of Grimlock without the puzzels. 11 races, 15 classes, dozens of spells, lots of skills. Leveling up is xp based plus skills gain through use in addition to level-up points. Multi-class any of your 6 character party!

Its very slow. But I think that's a plus. I enjoy long slow games that challange me. Combat is done VERY good once I figured it out. Just requires some patience. Its an old game but I think the graphics are quite alright. I play in windowed mode so I can chat and do other stuff too (search online for the tweak). One thing I like is the way battles can be automated or micromanaged. Positioning, formation and knowing when to use spells is critical! Save early, save often.

A strong and intresting tactical cRPG. I give this a strong 4/5

This is the best RPG I have ever played. I will say that flat and simple. It has the best replay value of all RPGs I have played, best party building system, best leveling system, and great and unique combat system too. THe only con I can think of is the graphics very much how its an old game. It is about a slight step up from N64 graphics is all, but damn the gameplay is good. It is a complex game, but very straight forward like chess. The rules of chess are easy to learn, but figuring out how you want to play and the best way to play are a whole other thing.
This game is worth $10. Ive got 25 hours right now and I'm still fighting with restarting and just trying out combinations of parties. I haven't even gotten 1/4 through thew game yet. I make progress fine, but I learn more about the enemies and flow of combat and think "Oh wait I can do that! ok I'm ganna make another party with that in mind now"

You can do almost anything you want too. Want all ranged members? all melee or magic? no problem you can do it, but it will take some time to tweak the and figure out how to make it be good, but the point is you can!

My favorite RPGs before this were probably golden sun and legend of dragoon. If your like me you or like either of those games you will LOVE this game.

To this day W8 is STILL probably the best RPG ever made IMHO. I have never spent the big bucks on any of the newer games, nor do I have the hardware to handle any of them with my poor old machine, but I've logged A WHOLE LOT of hours on W8.
And ya know what? I'm gonna log some more here in a few minutes :-)
I can't say this about many other games on Steam, but I do say this about W8:

Buy it for the nostalgia, buy it because it's a fun way to waste an afternoon, but don't buy it for the Mac port. There basically isn't one. They just threw Wine at it and called it a day. The game supports resolutions higher than 800x600, but you'd never know it if you ran it on a Mac. It comes with 3D setup programs for Glide and DirectX7, but you can't run them from OS X, so there's no way of knowing what resolutions Wine might support. Hand-editing the text file with common resolutions just fails. For the best experience, you're going to want to run this under Windows.

Finally! Here's an old-school RPG that has at least some of the modern conveniences that we've come so heavily to rely upon. Streamlined combat, graphics that are good enough to let you know what things are, and just a generally playable experience. The voice quips by your characters are a lot of fun. This is the only Wizardry game I'd recommend (though even so, only if you're into the genre...)
