Dragon (May, 1989)
Sir-Tech continues to produce high-quality adventures. Wizardry V is but one example of its commitment to plot, puzzle, and player participation.
Unlike recent versions of other RPGs, which have expanded in terms of colour and graphics, Wizardry has expanded in terms of size and plot development. Although there isn't much text, there are numerous features and mini-puzzles to be stumbled over in the dark, and most of them set you some kind of puzzle or new objective. Wizardry allows you up to six members in your party. You'll need every one. It may not look that hot on screen, but you're certainly hot if you can finish it.
„Heart of the Maelstrom“ ist nun endlich ein richtig eigenständiges Abenteuer; dank Party-Strickmenü und Handbuch steht die Wizardry-Welt hier auch Einsteigern offen. An Neuerungen sind mehr Zaubersprüche und ein verbessertes Kampfsystem zu verzeichnen, außerdem treten jetzt Unterhaltungen mit NPCs und knackige Rätselnüsse in den Vordergrund.

This game is a must for any adventure gamer's computer-game library.
