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 reviews and comments

Translated by

Wizardry 8 is definitely a masterpiece of RPG, by playability, interest, originality can compare with such great, as M&M and BG. I will Not advise this game to old men, because they all 100% already in it played and, probably, more than once. And for people that for some reason missed the Visa, I advise you to try. Yes There is no modern graphics (by the way, at the time of the release she was at the height), but she came out unfinished, but, hell, she is beautiful. I Remember the number of Gambling with the passage from the Dart master, which helped, at least, in the detection of secret dungeons (the internet has not even been mine); Painted in the recipes of mechanics and alchemy sheets of paper that are still dusty in the drawer of the computer table in the parent's apartment, as well as the three-disc game from Buki. In the game you will find an interesting plot, sometimes funny and funny, which depends on your actions, memorable characters, interesting builds, fights for half an hour (where at the end you can kill), gnashing teeth from the strong things that you can not use (Rassa , class) and a lot of mistakes in pumping, because of which you will most likely want to start the game anew, and then again, bringing to perfection their characters... Only Here you can play a fairy-fighter or a likeness Chubbaki-Muukom-bard. Only Here you will be able to travel to the company of a slug-beetle samurai, squirrel-arrow, the most real robot or a sweet-mouthed rhino. Voice-Over is worth a separate praise, good, both original and Russian (Bukovskaya), music and dialogues evoke a smile and appeasement. Such Games as Wizardry 8, no longer came out in 15 years, and will not come out-other times, other manners, and so hurry to enjoy, while there is such an opportunity. Hope remains only the Kistarter with enthusiasts, someday, perhaps...

I Do not remember when I first played this Miracle of the genre) Brother from someone brought license discs, well, it was. At those times the game seemed frankly wonderful, hurt a lot of classes, races, and the possibilities of order was. Death in the first battle of a pair of fighters, proved to be a shock. That's Why you can call this game a miracle, or an Underrogalkom. There is no Training here, at once throw in the most that is unfriendly to you area. The Enemy can be around every corner, sleep and get away with it quietly will not give (or rather sometimes you can), and standing in a seemingly safe zone to rest, you can waking up, see on the "radar" group of enemies at once at all exits from the zone. The longer you rest, the greater the chance of such a case. Enemies can easily surpass your squad level, here autolevled so brutal that I was up to level 15, got enemies 17 like. I killed Him, but I wasn't happy. This is still an average complication. Good branches of dialogues, and at least one hero is to vkachat communication, otherwise you will not talk to anyone. Yes, and the answers will be far from accurate. Very good texts of the characters themselves, so to speak corresponding to the character) Remembering that Sir-Tech once created Jagged Alliances, it is not surprising. Thief saw a large pile of enemies, otmochit that her business is waiting, a fighter berserker probably immediately want to fight, and so on. Well, the reaction to "everyday" incidents, like the fall of his ship, or meeting with a new NPC. Heroes in general react vividly to what is happening. And in our localization, it is good and foreign. There is a great music in the genre of probably an ambient. And Voice, I sit with the Russian text and foreign voices. Of the bad, the complexity of the scales even on the oldschool standards. Without a good nut it is quite possible and to Arniki not to live (hours two games at a hurry, and experience). On the one hand, the high complexity is a test, but here it is very painful evil) ZA. Reissue did well, the game retains the highest stability of the original. Plus increased the resolution. For a complete happiness, it would not hurt to add phrases to the heroes more, but because they could be very good quality to the original, this desire is quite controversial. 10 out of 10, true Hardcore for old players. The New I would not come near advise, Vizardrri ordinary player eats.
