This unusual game is not for everyone, but if you enjoyed any of the mm games (barring mm9 which was ghastly) you should buy this game. It combines the retro feel of mm 1-5 with modern day graphics and a dash of tongue in cheek humour. I enjoyed the dialogue, combat system and references to the old mm games.

Considering the inexperience of the programming team, this is an excellent effort, I haven't encountered any game breaking bugs (I've been warned to look out for those) and I am pleasantly surprised at the respect and dignity that the game designers have treated the mm universe and source material with.

Sure, it's not up to par with mm6, but what is? We should just be happy that they agreed to revive the series, I'm already looking forward to the next installment of might and magic.

Excellent modern adaptation of Might and Magic 3 through 5. It takes care of some problems those titles had. I'm only playing it now after it's been in my library for a while and I don't see problems with bugs as other people have said. Tonight is October 5, 2014. I would recommend it to anyone who loves turn-based RPGs.

Amazing run. Maybe not as deep as Might and Magic 3 to 5 but definitly a breath of fresh air. The complexity of team creation is definitly the good point of the game.

I actually did the game 3 times.

Really really good job. Hoping for a XI.

The more I played of M&M X, the less I enjoyed it. The last few areas were a slog, with huge groups of enemies that have little to no chance of actually killing you blocking your path at every turn.

Loving an old school RPG. Didn't know how much I missed the 'Party of 4, Level Characters, Collect Loot, drink lots of potions' gameplay. Sometimes simple is better; I own Skyrim, and would rather play this right now.

an enjoyable trip reminiscent of RPGs of the 90s with graphics that are descent enough that you won't feel as if it actually is the 90s

Great old school game, but unbalanced - I was playing all previous parts since VI, but I don't see story continuation here. Graphics bit better, but mechanics left same as in previous parts. Why have I bought it? Definitely because of sentiment, I wouldn't recommend it for young players, because it didn't make any progress we already achieved and it's step back.

One day I will finish it - right now there is a lot of much more playable titles in queue :)

Old school grid style, yet fully immersive with fun turn-based combat, spell casting and storylines. Recommended for anyone looking to go on a new adventure with an old school feel.

Pros:
- Very good game in the genre.
- Much better than Legend of Grimrock: More spells, skills, classes and better character development.
- Nice storyline, interesting quests and cenaries.

Cons: Comes with uPlay. Not so annoying than most people think, but surely not a desirable thing.

Definitelly recommend for nostalgic players of the Dungeon Crawler genre.

I admit it, nostalgia was what got me to buy this game. But as I played I kept feeling this "meeh" vibe about it, as opposed to when I pick up other classics that leave me wanting more. Overall I give the game a 6/10, it's a bit lackluster.

I wanted to believe in this game. But ubisoft did it again. MM10 is an unplayable garbage, using salvaged models from hom&m6. Now the plot i dont much remember by now which speaks about how deep it was. Shallow, unimaginative, bad.
The weather changing was so sudden it was giving me eye pain out of the blue. Combat was boring and bland aswell. No more fun spells like before, we get the boring status effects and a few direct and aoe spells. Great.
Developed by a ubisoft one would expect it to be of higher quality but it is not. 4.5/10 for the game as it is if you are just starting. 3 or even 2/10 if you are a M&M fan who hates seeing the franchise you like get this ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ treatment. First the abysmal 9. Now almost even worse 10.
Do not buy it unless its on sale for like 2-4$

I swore off Ubi$#it a while ago, but excitedly picked this up during early access and didn't realize this game was infected with the uPlay virus. You got me again Ubi... Pirate this game and let this publisher rot.

Being an old school Might and Magic fan, I didn't know what to expect out of this game. I played through and got to the end but it took a while. Save and save often. Your party make-up in the beginning makes a BIG difference in your survivability rate. Don't make any archers, bring someone that can take a lot of dmg, bring someone that can deal lots of dmg, make sure you have a good healer and have someone that can cast pretty much all the spells. You might have to try out a few combinations before you figure out what's best. If you like the Might and Magic series, you will dig this game. The only gripe is the class customization. I was hoping for a bit more than what was offered. Pretty much have to take it or leave it kinda classes. Make a good combination of classes and you can't go wrong. This game kinda reminds me of playing the older ones with the turn-based movement. The game looks great, but be prepared for a bit of a challenge until you get some levels.

I purchased this item because I played through all the MM titles and liked it a lot. When I saw this title here on Steam I was positively suprised and immediately bought it in rememberance of the good old times.

Unfortunately I'm quite dissaspointed with it though. Graphics is ok, but gameplay is horrible. The characters frequently issue warning shouts, even though there is nothing to see. What is really annyoing though is, that you can easily get locked into a fight where you don't even want to, because the party has to rest. But you can't walk away, so the only thing left to do is to reload. This also includes getting into a dungeon where you realize that the enemy is to tough, but you can't back out anymore, because you are not allowed to leave the dungeon and flee until the fight is over.

I don't know if I missremeber MM in the wrong way, but I don't recall having such issues in the original series.

Another total annoying thing is that you have to register with UPlay. I can't even play offline when I don't have internet. WHY????? I specifically purchase such games to take them with me on my laptop to summer vacation, where I often don't have internet, and this is really annoying for no apparent reason!

What a let down this game was. Buggy as all hell. I love all the M&M games in the past, but Ubi massacred this franchise with this one. I get so far into Act 1 and I can not travel any further forward. The option to get to the next area is greyed out. The only fix listed online is to either start over or change something in the config file. By changing the config, it will break end game. And now Ubi has pulled all patching and support for this game. Save your money and look for adventure somewhere else!

I'm a huge fan of the Might and Magic franchise, Heroes included, and that's the only reason I played through this. Unless you are REALLY desperate for your M&M fix, I can't suggest this as a viable purchase. For the same money, you can get much better titles, new and old.

As for the actual problems with the game:

-Graphics are laughable. Expect low res environs throughout the game

-Optimization is bad. I can run Skyrim on ultimate with no issues on my rig, but the turn based M&M is apparently too much, as even on middle of the road settings, there is going to be heavy lag in certain areas with dense foliage. According to the forums, this is a fairly common problem.

-No customization. There are 4 races with 4 hero type each (caster, ranger, tank, melee) and once you pick one of those, you get to decide on male or female. Oh, and also a name. Joy... There's no way to change the appearance of your characters and you never even get to see a model of them beyond a picture during character creation.

-Poor class balance. Rangers used to be completely useless, but after the patch they were upgraded all the way to just "meh". The game LOVES to spring ambushes on you (about 30% of the fights, along with most bosses), by dumping a ton of enemies at melee range, making bows and crossbows useless for the fight (once you engage in melee, you can't retreat till you kill everything in melee range). There goes a quarter of the hero pool. Tanks are also useless, since almost all bosses (and all undead, which are VERY frequent) are immune to taunt - your primary tanking mechanic. This means that 50% of the classes in the game have no purpose, except for flavor, at the cost of your party's strenght. That's just bad design.

-Turn based gameplay on a 2-dimensional plane. You can call this a throwback to the old M&M series, but it just doesn't work. Even the worst of Might and Magic games had a smoother transition between turns, than Legacy. The last ones even managed to mix real-time movement with turn-based combat. Also, turn based movement is not fun when on long treks between towns and quest points. This game has a lot of that, if you're looking for all the hidden little nooks and crannies.

-No voice work for quests. While it's not a necessity for every game, it would have been nice if M&M X managed to show off with something, at least.

-Lackluster story. Everything in M&M X screams "minimal effort" and the story is no different. It's painfully generic and set in a very boring world where every character is just a cookie cutter fantasy stereotype. There's just nothing new, even in the story: elves are elves, dwarves are dwarves and orcs wear fezzes (god damn it, Ubisoft...) You can't even augment your party with new and interesting companions. Once you get out of the hero creation screen, that's it - it's set in stone. You DO have the option of getting two followers, but with no voice work and characterization, all they offer is a boost to one (mostly unimportant) aspect of gameplay.

Relative to what else is out on the market, even at this price, Might and Magic X - Legacy is just a bad game. It has nothing to offer, save for the faint nostalgia of the franchise.

This was a very pleasant surprise. Who knew that in 2014 there was going to be a release of an old-school RPG blobber. It’s a great homage to the series, even going as far as to recycle many sounds from the VI-VIII trilogy.

Even so it was mostly good, I was a bit burned out by the end, but that’s because I’m not really into long, 50 hour, epics nowadays. On the other hand the game had a combat dynamic that was more similar to Wizardry than Might & Magic, since the challenge was into each fight instead of the attrition of many weaker fights. In the end I hope this one sold enough to justify another game in this great series.

Might and Magic X - Legacy

Positives:

+ Successfully emulates the old-school Might and Magic series, with a party creation system which feels very familiar. There's also other classic additions, such as portraits of your characters in-game. Many of the distinct Might and Magic sounds from the games 7-9 have been re-used, which brings back memories.
+ Graphically, the game looks modern and interesting, which is great.
+ A fairly large game world to explore with relative freedom, quite a few quests to engage in as well, along with class promotions.
+ Story is intriguing and lengthy, took me about 55 hours to complete all main quests, with side quests included.
+ Lots of different monsters to fight - naga samurai, air, earth, fire and water elementals, brigands, harpies, griffins, cyclopses, goblins, minotaurs...and many more.
- Turn based combat which is different from Might and Magic 7-9, but actually works really well, giving you a chance to tactically assess what spells you'll cast and how you'll attack.

Negatives:

- Throughout the game a lot of audio is constantly repeated (such as locals talking), and for some people this might get irritating.
- Decent amount of puzzles with varying difficulties, although I found some of these to be tedious, boring and annoying, resorting to simply googling the solutions.
- Grid based movement, which is a step down from conventional games where you can freely turn and walk in any direction. While this isn't ideal it doesn't drastically impact on the fun of the game, it just means it's not as fluid as it could have been.

Overall Score: 8/10

Might and Magic X - Legacy is an excellent RPG which mirrors the old series from the 1990s. Even if you're a Might and Magic 7-9 fan, you should still grab this game because it's awesome fun.
