No thread on this game yet? I love this game, better than Oblivion in a lot of ways IMO. Anyone else have this game?

I played it through two times. Once as a sword n' board fighter and once as a magic user. It was fun, but I much prefer half life or hl2. Playing a medieval era game on HL2 graphics was very fun though. kicking ftw.

How far back do you want to go? I have the original Might and Magic from circa 1988 on the Apple IIE... :roll:

Great game in my opinion.
I loved the fact it is from first person view, graphics is amazing and brings some new stuff to the gameplay.

Multiplayer is even better the the single mode, worth checking out!
Loved it!

Nearly finished in mage mode. Going for fighter mode the next time through. Mobs are a bit repetitive from time to time, but if you ever get bored launching fireballs or shooting arrows, you can always just kick one of the baddies off of a cliff or balcony :) Great fun.

Yeah, the game offers a lot of ways to kill you opponents, so it should be fine ;)

Might and Magic series

Guilty of playing a lot of the might and magic series in the mid 90s. Older d&d games on 5.25 floppys before that on an apple IIgs :P

Some of you played through twice? Sounds good, I'll check it out.

I finished it as a mage, but didn't go through it again as any other class, although it may be interesting to try.
I just thought might be better to try out the MP mode, which is great by the way!
Also, so many other games on my list that I don't find the time to go through each more then once :)
