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.

Graphics: 10
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.

Sound: 10
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.

Gameplay: 10
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: 10
