|I am one of those people who get all nostalogic when people talk about the glory of the NES. However, I get really peeved when people talk about the "former" glory of the NES. The NES system is STILL in its glory days. And Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlords is one of the best games, if not the best.
I gave the graphics aa high of a rating as I did because for a game as old as Wizardry is, it has fairly good graphics. You have to remember that the NES was only 8 bits, as opposed to 64 or 128 bits. The monsters look [fairly] realistic and you can pretty much tell that they are a Ninja or a Greater Demon or a scruffy man.
Wizardry's sound is awesome. The music, however, is the type where you just want to rip out you're ears by the time you're halfway done.
The gameplay of this game is just righteous. Sure, some things may cost a little bit (15,000 GP), but, hey, it gives you more time to practice before you go on to the more difficult levels of the maze.
Overall? OVERALL?? OVERALL, THIS GAME KICKS ASS!! OVERALL, THIS IS THE BEST "NES" GAME EVER PRODUCED!! OVERALL, THIS IS A RIGHT-ON AWESOME GAME!!
This is a very good game, in my opinion.
