Title Wizardry VI - Bane of the Cosmic Forge Game Type RPG Publisher Sir-Tech Players 1 Compatibility OCS and AGA Submission Karl Anders Rostrup Review This game is a good (if appearing dated) role-playing game, somewhat similar to SSI's GoldBox-style games, and will keep you occupied for some time. As in many RPGs, you are given the opportunity to create a party of up to six characters for your quest to find the lost Bane of the Cosmic Forge. You are allowed to choose between a multitude of character classes and races, but take care and time to roll up good characters in the start of the game - you'll need everything you can get to survive the first part of the game without suffering unacceptable losses. The game interface is functional, and lets you control your characters actions without too much fussing around, though it can take a short while to find out exactly what everything does. Character development is well implemented, as is the opportunity for experienced characters to switch classes and aquire even more powers and abilities that can eventually be combined with the abilities of the old classes. The puzzles of the game can be rather odd at times, but thinking and searching through it all will help you out more often than not. Some of the enemies are *very* tough, and require advance knowledge of their powers and abilities if you are to defeat them effectively. The graphics of the game appear rather dated, and the sound is so-so, but under this aged appearance lies an intriguing role-playing game that will take you at least a week to complete. Humor is present in the game, and you will find yourself laughing at some of the puns and jokes that are part of the plotline and character interaction. If there's anything negative to be said about this game, it must be that if you miss out on a vital clue in the game, it can take you ages to backtrack to just the part where you went wrong. Also, some of the correct responses to the NPCs can be very hard to find. Concluding this review, this game is well worth getting, and should probably be a bargain because of its age. An enjoyable RPG that will keep you occupied for some time to come.
