Hey CJ get ready to DIE. Since that will happen a lot in the original Elminage lol.
Love how the Elminage series has stayed more true to the original Wizardry formula. Can imagine those who have never played a wizardry game are going to get scared off though by the difficulty.

Id have to say Etrian Oddessy was based off of Wizardry in general gameplay and style. Though most of the mechanics have been made a lot more "user friendly" and allows for more customization with the characters with the skill points.
Elminage in general most of the mechanics have stayed true to the original Wizardry formula for the most part. The game is by far one of the hardest Wizardry type dungeon crawlers out there and expect to spend a lot of time in game as its not a title you can blow through quickly.
For those who love that its a great series, but for those who have difficulty with games like EO Id suggest staying away from this title as you will just wind up getting frustrated.
Once again though great to see it coming to the west.
Id take a pic of every single Elminage game released but everything is all separated into boxes stored away in the apartment. D: Got them all except for the latest spinoff title that came out on the PSP the weird Japanese themed one which got panned pretty hard in user feedback. Didnt consider it an actual part of the series so never picked it up when it came out.
Id have to say out of them all 1 and 3 were the more difficult titles. 1 more so on the PS2 vs the DS just due to the sheer amount of enemies you can encounter. One area in particular with how monsters just keep appearing while in battle made for some CRAZY fights. It got toned down a bit on the portable versions. (DS / PSP)
