Gamespy- Wizardry Online Review

GS:If nothing else, Wizardry Online is a step in the right direction for those of us who dream of a Dark Souls MMORPG. Gamepot's unique free-to-play MMO might strut about with the logo of the venerable but long-dormant RPG franchise, but it's Hidetaka Miyazaki's punishing dark fantasy RPG's influence that feels the strongest here, manifesting itself in both the details and the broad strokes of Wizardry's design. We can see it in the interactive objects that glitter like stars in the dark recesses of dungeons. We can feel it in the way combat requires active timed uses of the shield for blocking. And together with the traditions of the original Wizardry, it taunts us with the threat of death. Yet it's all wrapped in such a shoddy and unattractive package that it nearly blows the whole thing. (PC, Wizardry Online) 3.5/5
