Wiz 8 isn't really in the same genre as Grimrock. They're both party-based crpgs that use a first-person view, but that's where the similarities end. Grimrock is just a dungeon crawl, albeit a very good one imo.

Wiz 8 is a much longer game with more depth and covers a greater variety of environments. The combat is turn-based and makes use of tactical positioning of your party members. It can be a bit grindy to some people due to the high volume of combat, but I still consider it a classic.
