Wizardry 5 - Won! @ CRPG Addict

by Dhruin, 01:06

A deep dose of nostalgia as the CRPG Addict writes about wrapping up his playthrough of Wizardry 5:

Mapping Level 7 took a long time, mostly because I kept running into monsters bent on killing me for good. Repeatedly, I had to fight parties with multiple spellcasters who thought nothing of casting mass-damage spells like LAHALITO and LADALTO, wiping out half my party members in a single round. Eventually, I got so sick of returning to the surface to raise my dead party members that I simply started reloading every time one of them died. Thus did I start on the slippery slope to the CRPG scum that I ultimately became.
