$30 is a little steep in today’s gaming market. I’ll almost definitely pick it up on sale though. on 16 Sep 2023 01:49 next collapse

That’s cool, and the graphics look great. This will probably do well in Japan, since Wizardry was a phenomenon there. I’d pay $30 but I’ll wait until there’s a Switch version. on 16 Sep 2023 02:05 next collapse

Omg I loved that one! Werdna!

Also loved Crusaders of the Dark Savant, that one was beyond fantastic! on 16 Sep 2023 13:01 collapse

Maybe it was me, but compared to might and magic at the time it was brutal with the difficulty. There was no internet to find out what to do. on 16 Sep 2023 15:22 next collapse

It is brutal. The entire series is brutal. on 16 Sep 2023 17:21 collapse

Well, Might & Magic had the advantage of letting you make your moves turn by turn, where’s Wizardry had that weird system where you commit each party member’s action all at once and then let ‘er rip. I always found it strange and also inconvenient.
