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!

Un juegazo teniendo en cuenta unas cuantas cosas:

Cons:
- Es un juego en 3D del 2001 con lo que ello conlleva, por lo menos se puede subir a tope la resolución del juego.

- Es muy largo, complicado y los combates por turnos no hacen mas que relentizarlo aun mas, sin un parche llamado WIZ8FAST (que me permitió multiplicar la velocidad de movimiento de los combates) estoy seguro que no hubiera podido terminar el juego.

- No tiene puzzles propiamente dichos, y lo que hay es tediosos ya que es escribir una palabra a un pnc y coger y entregar/usar un item que puede llegar a estar en la otra punta del mundo, por ello en la mayoría de ocasiones tuve que mirar guiás por no volverme loco probando.

Pros:
Hay cargas en los diferentes mapas de las zonas pero con el disco SSD ni me entero, es un themepark pero al tener total libertad de movimiento entre las diferentes zonas y que salvo una pequeña quest no hay una misión principal que te obligue a seguir un camino mi sensación es de sandbox.

En la creación de personajes tienes muchas clases y razas para elegir, es recomendable ver alguna guiá-consejo previamente para equilibrar el grupo, el truco es mas o menos el de siempre: tener un poco de todo y que cada uno se especialice en lo que mejor sabe hacer. Las voces de los personajes están muy conseguidas y los gráficos aunque sean antiguos y con pocos detalles me han gustado, lo único que me eche en falta es no poder subir la distancia máxima de visión que te permite el juego (solo con un mod llamado Cosmic Forge puede cambiarse mapa a mapa forzando el motor del juego)

Ingame puedes elegir unirte a diferentes fracciones y hasta escoger diferentes finales, a tu grupo de 6 puedes reclutar hasta 2 pnjs mas (aunque no te acompañaran a todas las zonas), es muy recomendable subir a 100 él/los atributos especiales ya que te desbloquean una habilidad especial.

La historia esta muy bien y el juego engancha mucho. Al principio es fácil (level 1-5), luego se me complico mucho (level 6-10) y hasta el level 11 o algo mas no pude empezar a controlar bien la situación, aun así en cualquier momento te puedes encontrar con un pull que no es fácil.

El mapa es tan grande que ir de una punta a otra por un olvido o algo que no sabias que necesitabas es horrible, pero a partir de cierto level algunos de tus personajes tendrán un hechizo de teleportacion que fija un punto de retorno (cada punto de un pj es independiente del de otro pj), esto mas que ciertas facciones de NPCs tienen su propio teleport fue otros de los motivos que me ha permitido terminar el juego ya que llega un momento que tener que volver a ir otra vez a la otra punta se hace muy tedioso.

Para mi ha sido de los mejores juegos que he jugado de este genero, Lo recomiendo solo si tenéis tiempo libre (tardé mas de 90h en finalizarlo) y por su puesto has de ser amante de este genero ya medio olvidado no siendo los gráficos para ti lo mas importante de un video juego.

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.

Immortal Classic. Too bad SirTech is no longer with us. This game was incredible when it was released and still is amazing.

Games problems are few: eye piercing graphics, scaling of enemies and pretty much absense of tutorial.

There is not much else to say really, so many words were already told about this game we could probably create several massive tomes comprising all the reviews and praise.

Buy it, enjoy it, just remember this came out more then a decade ago. A huge shoutout to those who ported this game to steam, along with system shock! You guys are awesome!
