This game is great. I still remember to play it around 6 years ago, looking forward impatiently to reach the point where you can finally fight the Gorrors.
They're the most difficult enemies the game has to offer and you don't need to fight them. If you still decide to do so, be prepared to spend hours and hours of dying / reloading the savegame before you may kill them. And they leave really much experience and the best treasure after their death the game has to offer, though it's always random one like everywhere in the game.
Here are the most impossible of them:
The Thing from Hell (will make you all insane and is almost impossible to hit)
The Beast of 1000 eyes (you stand almost no chance against it's spell, and it can stone you or kill you, muhahaha!)
The Fiend of 9 Worlds (he'll kill your party in about 15-20 rounds even if they're really high level)
Good luck when you reach them, but they're worth it, believe me.

Looks great! FreeFreddy made a really detailed and well written review here.

I only tried this shotly on one of my friends computer, I never had it myself. I look forward to play it, as I have always thought it looks great.

Looks good, but I hate jumping into plot-heavy games midway through a series.

Is it worth tracking down the earlier games just for the story, or are they not that important? I know the review says it carries on from 6, but what about 1-5?

Looks great. If I find time I'll try and play it, not likely for a while until after I finish a few more essays and exams...Thanks FreeFreddy for all the hard work you did for us.

Wizardry 1-5 has nothing to do with Wizardry 6 and 7. These games are of their own story.
But you're right, it would be good to add Wizardry 6 - Bane of the Cosmic Forge as well, it was also good game, though the graphics in it were just EGA and therefore not that good as in Wizardry 7. But the fun is almost the same. And it's there where the story begins.

That wasn't really a hard work... I even didn't upload the game, just wrote the review, added the original worldmap that I scanned ages ago on my old Pentium 100 and added a walkthrough I found on some internet site.
And that's the thing - I cannot remember uploading this game at all. Are you sure that not someone other uploaded it?
Btw., those Gorrors will indeed be really hard. Especially Beast of 1000 Eyes and Fiend of 9 Worlds are impossible ones. Others still can be beaten with some patience and good character levels, but these two are absolutely impossible enemies.

Sure.

After you have installed Daemon Tools, you will see it has a small red icon placed in the bottom left part of your screen (together with your sound volume and MSN icon and so on).

Left-click on it, and you will see a small menu appearing.
Click on Device 0: [F:] No Media, and then browse through your folders until you find the ISO for the game. When you open the file through Daemon Tools, you will have mounted it.

Happy gaming!
