Unimpressive

  • Summary: When playing this, I was kind of amused by the thought of how little computer RPGs have advanced since I played Bard's Tale on the Apple II. Since then, I've been playing the old Baldur's Gate game, and I can see where the true development is.

Depressing and not much fun!

  • Summary: I qualify as a Might & Magic Junky, having played all of the series since #1. The best aspect of these games is the development of the team. In my family, each person becomes a "named" character with a personality to suit the mood of the game. You always had your choice to be a good or bad.

Not so good

  • Summary: Might and Magic VIII was really a dissapointment when I first played it. It has the same game engine as its most recent prequil, but with some downsides. First you only get to create one character, your main character, and the rest of your party is filled up with characters you meet.

An Endless Slog against unintelligent monsters.

  • Summary: Having played M&M6 and M&M7, I was really looking forward to this game. Unfortunately, once I started I lost interest pretty quickly. It is so similar to the earlier games that I felt I was just replaying one of the other titles.

  • Summary: I have long been a fan of this series and I jumped at thechance to get the next game. I knew before hand that the graphicswould not be the best around, but that wasn't important. The problem was the game felt hollow.

  • Excerpt: For many years through hours and hours of gameplay through Might and Magic 1 to 7 I finally laid my hands on the coveted Might and magic 8. With trembling hands I opened the shrinkwrap, put the cd into the computer and installed it Then with prespiration dripping from my sweaty hands I clicked on...

Very, VERY disappointing.

  • Summary: Having really enjoyed M&MVI, I looked forward to M&MVII which was a great disappointment and far too easy. It follows, therefore, that M&MVIII is even worse, it is very easy (takes very little time to complete), the graphics are poor, the sound is bad, the storyline is awful...
