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.
Worth it. I planned to sleep. Saw the decription of this game so I decided to purchase it. I was happy I did and of course. I didn't sleep until 2 replays. Its great because you can even choose familiars or animal companions etc human companions and get laid lol with 1-3 girls every replay. But you cant get the pegasus if you get laid cuz you are considered impure. Fuk u horse with wings imma bang.
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.
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.
Disappointing I bought this game because I thought it would be like other choose-your-own adventures, but instead I recieved instead a storyless plot where the choices just decides which areas your points go. It's basically collecting skill points in mini quest after mini quest until your skills reach 100 and you grow old.
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.
