Truly one of the greatest hardcore CRPG series. Diseases, poisons, starvation, succumbing to the elements…obstacles galore!
No supersets of amazing armor, no +1 +2 +3 this and that thrown haphazardly across the game world (you find something magical and it REALLY feels special), obscure yet common-sense puzzles, combat that makes you think almost every battle through from beginning to end. I could go on and on.
Though the graphics are dated -even by the standards of the time in which it was released- and the interface and controls were typically cumbersome, this series was truly a masterwork.
A shame we'll never see anything at this level again. Just not enough of us true dorks left to appreciate it, I suppose!
