game, NOT AT ALL
- This is one of the best Computer Roleplaying games I have ever
played. And I feel sorry for Westwood, and Virgin, for they have
lost a great game.
Heuristic Park sent us a very recent build of Wizard &
Warriors last week, one that may be even more recent that many
other gaming sites received, and we've been very busy playing it
and checking all the different aspects of the game, and have this
review to reflect our opinions.
Installing it went fine, and has a few options to choose, after
installing and watching the great into for to game, You will need
to create a party of six adventurers from a choice of 9 Races and
15 Professions. The interface is similar to Wizardry VII's, or Eye
of the Beholder.
Combat and Magic systems are very simple to use; no worrying about
components and other things that may make spell creation a pain..
Its much like Baldurs Gate. You rise up in level, gain new spells
and/or by scrolls.
The Game engine is set to Real-time, but can be changed to
phased-turn combat. again, much like Baldurs Gate. (Which is
great, it will give you time to stop the game, make all your
choices, and let her rip!
In town, where you will start out, (actually, you'll start out in
the Inn, where you create your characters).
The Magic Shoppe is where Wizards will go to Buy, Sell, Identify
items, and also Enchant Items! You'll be able to join the Wizards
guild, and change professions, such as a Bard, Samurai, or
Also in the Wizards Guild is where you'll find Quests, and
Training - designed with the Wizard in mind.
As I stated above, this is where you will begin the game. You can
create up to six characters to add to your party.
This building is where Clerics will go to Train, Buy, Sell and
Identify items - Same as the Wizards Guild.
This is where you'll go to get the latest Town news, obtain Jobs /
Quests for gold, and store your gold in the Vault.
This is where your Warriors will go to buy, sell, and
identify/Repair items. You can also join the Warriors Guild and
Train. You may also change professions, such as Ranger, Samurai,
Paladin, Ninja & Barbarian.
This building will come in handy, because you'll hear lots of
rumors and gossip that can aid you in your quests. Also, you can
get drunk off your ass, which is fun too (watch out though, if you
get drunk, you'll end up with many disadvantages)
Their are more than one town too, and in these other towns, there
are other types of buildings, and areas. One is the Dock, maybe
you can board a ship and sail to a far away land.
awesome Story and Depth! Lot's of Skills and NPC's to speak
with. Amazing Atmosphere!
Buggy, Graphical Glitches and Artwork a bit low-res.
