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 just can't do it. I just can't recommend MIght & Magic X.

I played this during the beta, and played through the game twice. I decided to wait to try it again until after the beta was finished. When it was released, I was onto other games and hadn't gotten around to it.

Then, the Legend of Grimrock 2 came out, and I played all of the way through that, which got me nostalgic to play this one again.

But it's so bad. Particularly compared to Grimrock 2, but moreso even against it's predecessors. Even Might and Magic III, made in 1991 (23 years ago), is a better game in nearly every way.

I've loved every Might & Magic game and have played through them all multiple times. This game is a shadow of those games.

They decided to move back to a tile-based system. Unlike most people, I was fine with that. It didn't bother me.

What does bother me are the boring mechanics, limited and uninteresting character creation and development, a boring story, *cartoony* graphics, poor gameplay, bugs, typos (I counted 2 just in the narrated intro), hostile controls, lousy mapping..

I really want to like this. But I can't. Just.... I'm just sad about it.

If you are into games in the vein of old school, turn-based RPG, Might and Magic X - Legacy may be a game for you. It is fairly lengthy, taking me around 60 hours to complete the game almost entirely, and you are sure to get your money worth unless you try to blitz through the main storyline as quickly as possible. Be warned that the game is entirely based on the combat, so if you are not in love with it I there is a good chance you won't have the patience to finish it. would generally recommend this game, provided you are willing to overlook some fairly rough edges.

Pros:
- Combat is fun (most of the time)
- Good value for your money
- Large world to explore, lots of loot to collect

Cons:
- If the combat isn't your thing, there isn't much else to the game to enjoy
- The main story is nonsensical and not very interesting
- Performance issues when moving into new areas
- Combat balance issues (too easy at times, getting one-shotted at other times)

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 & Magic X returns to the good old days of Might & Magic series (think World of Xeen) while retaining a relatively modern touch to it (think M&M6+). Possibly for the first time ever in the series even the inventory is (mostly) likeable! Power-up barrels scattered around the world, statues that buff the party, puzzles that have you scratching your head, quest lines without big yellow markers telling you where to go, and last but not least, completely unfair fights if you stick your nose where it doesn't belong. Welcome to the Might & Magic! I've missed being in the M&M world!

First and foremost, don't be put off by the rather mediocre ratings -- if you are a fan of the series since the early days, you will love this one too. For the most part I can't but praise the game, but I do have a handful of complaints:

* some of the (teleporter) puzzles are a pain (too much of trial & error);
* armor wear (i.e. items breaking) is completely useless and should either be redesigned or removed completely;
* the Falcon and the Unicorn DLC could use some tuning (it's incredibly challenging/frustrating for melee-oriented parties for example).

Some people have been concerned with the PC requirements. I ran the game on highest settings (i7-3770K + Ati Radeon 290) and 90% of the time it runs completely fine. The other 10% of the time there are significant slowdowns, spikes, possibly related to traveling to another section or perhaps from daylight to nighttime switching. Be what it may, the engine could use a little polish in that respect. Also, loading times when entering dungeons or cities are fairly long, up to the point where I would rather run around the city on map than enter to travel through it.

So much for complaints, because in nearly every other aspect Might & Magic X is a very fun and engaging game. I clocked 50 hours on my playthrough, and for the first time in years I was disappointed a game ended so "soon". More of this, please!

On a scale from 1-10, I will happily award M&M X a solid 9/10. For all oldschool M&M (and Dungeon Master / Eye of the Beholder) fans.

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.

Might and Magic X: Legacy: There's something to be said for a game to exist solely based on its legacy (pun intended). Unfortunately, Might and Magic X does not feel like a good entry in the series nor a good role-playing game. Personally I’ve never played a might and magic game (I am a huge fan of the Heroes of Might and Magic series however) so I'm coming into the series as a relatively new player. I have played one other game similar to Might and Magic X; Grimrock, which I loved and play completely through. I bought this game with similar expectations and was sorely disappointed.

First I was expecting clever puzzles and riddles, there are none to be found in this game. Puzzles are mostly switch puzzles and riddles don't require any sort of abstract thinking, or really much brain power at all to figure it out. Okay, lame puzzles, is combat any good?

Nope, in Grimrock you had four characters, two in front for tanking and two in the back as range or support, in this game they stand side by side, allowing your squishy magic characters to be hit alongside your heavy characters, it makes switching character places pointless and overall it’s annoying. Range characters are also pointless, most of the games engagements take place within melee range and range characters will get a penalty when in melee range and their shots hit random enemies so if there is more than one better hope the shot hits the enemy you want; they don't have strong enough magic or melee combat skill to be worth devoting a character to range, just use melee and caster characters. All classes can use a ranged weapon in any case, a much more preferable option to having a useless character. Combat itself lack strategy and excitement, it’s much quicker to just mash the attack button through fodder enemies; bosses are the only enemies requiring more strategy, but it’s not much more and overall combat is a bore and a chore, sadly the game relies on it heavily. Side rant, the final boss fight is bogus.

Visuals and audio are both pretty good, the game takes you to a great variety of locations and there is plenty of color in this game, it’s pretty. Music is standard fantasy fair, but it’s well done. Voice work is...ok, not sure why elves and dwarfs sound similar, I shake my head and chuckle anytime I hear my Scottish elf girl speak, it doesn't really fit in with the setting. So the other bits aren't too great, how about the story?

Well...that also is a letdown, actually the opening cinematic to the game spoils everything, the who, what, where and why. I can't compare it to other Might and Magic games, but as far as storytelling goes it’s pretty weak and not engaging at all and it’s extremely linear. The game offers you a very lengthy experience, so that’s something.

Honestly, I was really excited for Might and Magic X and wanted to love it after playing the disappointment that was Heroes of Might and Magic 6. It sapped my strength and will to go on by how boring it was. There's a lot of content for the asking price, maybe if you get nostalgic for these games it will win you over, but for $24.99 USD I'd recommend something else, like Grimrock.

TL/DR; Might and Magic X: Legacy is a long but, boring role-playing experience. None of its qualities are strong enough to make the long trek worthwhile. I’d recommend using the $24.99USD on something else or buy Grimrock. Also Ubisoft making me use U-play ticks me off.

This is the best game I've played in years. I had often thought that perhaps my love of the "old school" RPG games was due to nostalgia more than the quality of the game and the brilliant game mechanics; however, playing this game proved to me that this was not the case.

I truly wish the makers of this game would release the engine so that users could create additional content and new games using this engine. I'd LOVE to play more campaigns using the same mechanics.

The game is not without flaws and bugs. However, despite all the problems, the game is a lot of good fun. It has no problem squashing you like a bug with difficulty and it still manages to capture that Might and Magic feel despite the low budget.

I get the feeling that if the same development studio was given more money to produce another game, it'd be quite good once they ironed out the kinks. Sadly, that likely won't happen.

Don't expect much with the story/dialogue though. Only get it for the gameplay.

Classic Might + Magic FPS turn-based grid gameplay, and a love letter to Clouds / Darkside of Xeen. Teaching-by-slaughter, riddle chests, epic gear that levels with you, wide skill trees, tons of random crap to discover when you just run off into the woods.

New fans may not enjoy this game. I've had the pleasure of growing up with the Xeen, Eye of the beholder and other turn based games. Here you will find updated graphics but this game does miss out on modern boss mechanics. A few of these moments exists in the game but this was a missed opportunity by the developers. Everything else in this game is true to the previous series. You will need to save often and build a balanced party (Tank, DPS, Healer and Mage). I finished 1 play through with Paladin (Tank), Barbarian (DPS), Ranger (DPS/Heal with Regen) and Freemage (Heal/AOE/ Damage mitigation spells).

8/10 if scoring for older fans

I really enjoyed this game, it reminded me so much of the original Might & Magic. Back before the graphics were any good and 3D rendering wasn't even a reality for desktop games. The game play is a perfect balance of old and new. Turn based takes me back, and also enhances the strategic part of this type of gaming. There are certainly some difficult sections in this game, where you can encounter monsters that are outright impossible to kill at the level you are in the game, so be careful. Monsters do not re-spawn, so it is not the kind of game where you can "farm" for gold and/or items. You have to be careful with your resources to make sure you don't miss any opportunities to upgrade when needed to progress. Overall, I would give this game a 9/10.

A solid first person dungeon crawler with some flaws. It may not be the best in the series, but it's pretty damn good. The game had some technical and balance issues at launch and some of them are fixed by now. If it's your first dungeon crawler it can be a bit hard because you can easily be outnumbered and outclassed. It's fun and addicting, but by the end it overstays it welcome just a bit.

This is basically Xeen (MM4) with a party of 4 and more customization/options. Turn based tile map party RPG. I'm about halfway through and definitely enjoying the game. I will probably wish there was more overall content when I'm done, but I will get over it by firing up WoX (MM4+MM5).

Soulless, chopped-down knock-off of the original Might and Magic games. Hilariously few options, outdated and unnecessary control scheme, few skills, autoloot and the screen constantly shouting at you "THIS IS A DOOR, DO YOU WANT TO OPEN IT?! [PRESS SPACE]", because clicking doors and containers to open and enemies to attack was too straight-forward and sensible. Were it intended as an Android game, it'd be ok; for a full-blown PC game, it's laughable.

And, of course, it requires a UPlay account to play, because Games For Windows Live was such a good idea, Ubisoft just had to make their own version of it.

I definitely do not recommend this cheap attempt at milking a dead franchise.

Plus, Might and Magic 6, 7 and 8 are quite cheap on GoG and the likes. Why waste your time and money on this? I know I wish I hadn't.

This game is almost eveything you want.
graphics are good,
map is huge.
char, creation is great
leveling up is great also

However,
you can not move in battle, taking away alot of tactics.
also once an enemie is defeted he is dead and ther are no random enemies. so you can not level up.
the scaling of the enemies vs your players is terrible.
there are 0! puzzle elements to the game
just fight then fight, o surprise another fight.
and the riddle element of the game is based upon vague things in the game a player would have no wy to know. just goole the answers to save yourself some trouble.

I have dedicated some hours to this game and I would not recommend it unless it was 4.99 or less.
I hope this helped sorry for my spelling mistakes.

also this is my first post, and I only posted becuase I looked forward to this game and was so disapointed.
