Very fun, interesting, and long. This was a fantastic story to play through. My half orc had one emotional adventure, I was sad when it ended. But in a happy way. I do have one question, is this story set in the same world as 'The Lost Heir', cause they are both the kingdoms and their capitals are named the same. I'm just curious. Anyways, fun story, good job.
Fun and Interesting The only qualms I have for this book-game is the change in story-line; no matter your choices, it is pretty much the same from play-through to play-through. Each time, you hit certain key points in the game and it ends up only slightly different. For instance, no matter your race, you start at the same village. This kinda puts a hamper on replay value. First few runs are great though.
Entertaining It's entertaining, although ur choices doesn't affect the progression of the story, it still cause a big difference in character build. It is challenging to complete all of the achievements, u will be indulged in multiple playthroughs without being bored. It can be improved if there's more freedom in the actions though, and if there are more variety in the course of the story instead of a linear story. It feels like we're just filling the blanks of a book that's written instead of a writing a new book.
Linear While a good attempt, Life of a Wizard suffers from a rushed storyline that doesn't actually have that many outcomes of significant difference. The characters don't have the depth or personality of other interactive fiction, and I really didn't care at all when any of the characters left the story. Also, many of the stories have a "give up and go home" option, which really ruins the experience. Ultimately, it's just more of a " try to have these certain stats at the end" thing than I was hoping.
Too Vanilla The setting relies on classic high fantasy tropes, and ends up feeling unoriginal. Playing it reminded me of the minmaxing and needless complexity of early DnD, which it has clearly been inspired by. It is however a very good as an introductory piece to text-based adventuring.
Great interactive novel! Highly immersive, very replay-able. Had more than ten play-throughs before I got tired of it. Well worth the purchase. The Achievements feature is a big plus.
