Legend of Grimrock any good?

I am a big fan of the Wizardry series
LoG looks really good, but I am kinda hesitant since it is not turn based like Wizardry

Have you seen this review?

It may help you figure out if it's the sort of game you want.

I guess no one else likes Legend of Grimrock

I really like it but it's definitely not a game for everyone. If you enjoy this style of game then I say grab it. I've never played the wizardry games but from what I've read they can be very difficult, Grimrock isn't too hard but it's also not a cakewalk either.

It's a great game. However, it's not really like Wizardry. It's more focused on puzzle-solving, with combat being secondary and quite arcade-like.

Atmospheric and great fun finding secrets. The combat is lame for the most part but it can be satisfying. I enjoyed it and finished it. I'm not sure I'd want to play another game similar to it for a while but it was a breath of fresh moldy air.

I like it, though I still need to finish it. The video review posted earlier does a pretty good job of summing it up.

Can I interest you in a...side mission?

Grimrock is an absolutely fantastic game; really a masterpiece IMO.

Check out the Yogscast or TotalBiscuit's gameplay footage on Youtube to see how it works.

It's okay, I guess. I got bored after just an hour and a half, but maybe it's just me. I'd recommend waiting for a sale to buy it.

Seems very similar to Dungeon Master to me, except with prettier visuals.
