Personal review

(Jugado hasta las torres del castillo)
Un juego de exploración de mazmorras algo envejecido.

Pros:
-Variedad de clases y razas.
-Uso de debilidades y fortalezas coherente con los enemigos.

Cons:
-Por algún extraño motivo empiezas la aventura desnudo.
-La narración es demasiado verbosa.
-Los gráficos muy a menudo son de lo más contraintuitivo para indicar que tienes por delante (muros que parecen espacio abierto, agujeros o caídas mortales que parecen suelo...)
-Que todos los personajes estén "en primera fila", lo que favorece demasiado a las clases de cuerpo a cuerpo y personajes con buena constitución (ya que por ejemplo los magos acaban siendo cañones de cristal)

Official description

Ten years ago, WIZARDRY set the standards in Fantasy Role-Playing (FRP). Now after two million copies have been sold and dozens of awards have been won, Bane of the Cosmic Forge raises and redefines those standards. This new WIZARDRY, the truest simulation ever of Fantasy Role Playing, will push your computer, your mind, and your sense of adventure to their very limits. Only through the power of the latest computer technology could the full dimensions of this new genre in FRP be possible.

This is FRP the way you wanted it to be.

Prepare yourself. Take with you six companions - choose wisely, for having chosen, your fate is in their hands. Enter the ancient castle to retrieve the Cosmic Forge, a magical pen whose writings caused the river of time itself to change course. You will find treasure, armor, and magic items to advance your quest; meet wizened and cryptic dwellers who hold secrets that must be unearthed; and solve the riddles and puzzles that abound.

But beware- you and your party will encounter countless dangers, hazards, and creatures of dazzling form to block your way. Only through your magic and skills, ever growing as you progress, can they be vanquished.

And the story, so rich in mythology and legend, weaves a web of intrigue so complex that only you, with patience and travail can unravel.

Let the computer roll the dice, consult the charts and apply the rules. From the 400 items of armor and weaponry researched for authenticity to the realistic combat structure, incorporating Primary and Secondary attack, this reproduction of true FRP within the computer environment will make all other attempts obsolete.

The adventure is as real as the pleasure.
