Official PlayStation Magazine BeneluxJan 2, 2012We don't want to offend the longtime fans of the series, but we honestly can't understand why anybody would want to play an archaic RPG like Wizardry when there are fantastic games like Skyrim around. Being nostalgic is one thing, being ignorant another. [January 2012, p.85]

Oct 14, 2012This game is horrible
I loved Etrian Odyssey, The Dark Spire and Strange Journey on the DS and all other dungeon crawlers on PC or PS butThis game is horrible
I loved Etrian Odyssey, The Dark Spire and Strange Journey on the DS and all other dungeon crawlers on PC or PS but compared to those games this game almost seems amateurish.
Really, the menus are very loveless, the dungeon design is terrible and they were REALLY lazy with the character portraits in the dungeons that just stay there the whole time.
I mean, this game is on PS3 and I find the graphics of mentioned DS games 10 times more appealing than the graphics of this game. It just seems like a sideproject of some students in their college years. One guy for the programming, one for the graphics and one for the music and testing.
Yes, it is a hardcore dungeon crawler but it could have been so much more. I could have made a better game with the RPG maker. Just look at Etrian Odyssey - THAT'S what I call a good dungeon crawler. The whole presentation sucks beyond belief. Gameplay is horrible. to I dont even want to write about it cuz all this random stuff (random hp gaiwas so frustrating that i cant even handle to think about it. Noot mention that story is 20-25h long, after that you can do your mindless grind for some kickass weapons without any use becasue you already beat the game.. or farm kills for 50.000 kills trophy what will take atleast 300h.. As a Wizardry fan i really had high hopes with this game. Such a shame.… Full Review »
May 3, 2014I like Wizardry games but this game is atrocious. Wizardry 8 came out in 2001 and it is a great game this thing is all about grinding insteadI like Wizardry games but this game is atrocious. Wizardry 8 came out in 2001 and it is a great game this thing is all about grinding instead of dungeon exploration as it should be.
Legends of Grimrock came out a while ago and it perfectly captured the spirit of good dungeon crawl. Stay away from this.… Full Review »
Dec 24, 2011(Play the demo it see if you want it or not) There is just one thing I want to say before I begin DAMN YOU MUSCLE MEMORY! If you have any love(Play the demo it see if you want it or not) There is just one thing I want to say before I begin DAMN YOU MUSCLE MEMORY! If you have any love for the Wizardry series and decide to pick up this game you will know how I feel. I recommend this game because it is a rarity that a indie Japanese game gets released to America (I looking at you The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, the only f**king reasons I even bought a Wii). There is also DLC Red Shadow of the Sister, but I haven't gotten the chance to play it yet. This game is hard in the same way the original release of The Witcher 2 is hard it doesn't tell you crap. (Check out the TV trope's site where you can get a lot of important information to know how to play the game also http://www.ps3trophies.com/forums/showwiki.php?title=Wizardry:-Labyrinth-of-Lost-Souls-Trophy-Guide ).
I will give you some tips before you go to any of the dungeons go to the item shop and buy a map it's the cheapest one there, for easy leveling up weaker characters you can go to the Temple and pay a tilith. I won't recommend it if you are just starting out, and make sure to have a Bishop in your party, they do free appraise an item which you will need to use a lot, and a mage because at higher levels they have the spell free warp sorry I do not know what level, they get it. I really want to play the sequel Wizardry: Torawareshi bourei no machi, so you guys better play this game a girl can only survive on Japanese demos for so long.… Full Review »
