Greets.
To anyone who have doubts about purchasing or not Early Access version at this point, i would strongly recommend to wait until final release, and getting some reviews by approved and trusted sources.

At this point of Early Access devs are not going to implement any serious changes in the gameplay process, basically limiting your feedback to bug reporting, not to mention that Ubisoft has its own team of testers assigned to this task.

The game is controversial at best, so for many RPG fans it can become a serious dissapointment and a crash of expectations. My advice is: be patient and wait until it is released and reviewed by RPG gaming community.

For some reason, many have been misguided, considering the game is still at alpha stage, and yet to pass through long development process. While LE studio considers otherwise, and here i will quote Thomas, LE technical lead:

<LE-Thomas> Question: will we get christmas update with more content? xD like lets say, new areas and quests?
<LE-Thomas> Answer: Sorry, the team is currently working on finalizing the game. There will be no more content updates to the game until the release. Until early 2014 is not a long time left anymore. ;)

This was stated during the third developers chat session. Obviously they will release the game in its current state. This simply adds more reason not to purchase Early Access version.

Also a HUGE WARNING NOTE.

CAUTION:

This adressed to all M&M VI, VII and VIII fans. In case you're one of them, check all the information about the game twice or even thrice as meticulosly, before making a decision. This game is based on M&M IV: Clouds of Xeen & M&M V: Darkside of Xeen. It has very illusive resemblance, if any at all, with M&M games staring from Mandate of Heaven.




This been added at the 29th of november:

Ok, now i will give some general info to familiarize you with some aspects of this project, i find rather questionable and controversial. Starting with:

1) Size of the game world.

M&MX is told to be consisted of 4 Acts, with Act 1 available during the Early Access. Act 1 location (including both Sorpigal by the sea and Peninsula maps) feels to be half the size of, for ex., Castle Ironfist location (from M&MVI). Act 1 offers us five dungeons, those being: Spider cave in Sorpigal; Lighthouse, Bandit Hideout, Catle Portmeyor and Cursed Ruins (which is not available in the Early Access phase) scattered all over peninsula map. Also we have two caves, each holding a single Cyclop monster inside and an empty puzzle cave. The size of these dungeons are medium, and it won't be much of an exaggeration to say that Castle Darkmoor (MMVI) would be able to contain all of them within itself.
Now, to make an approximate estimation of the overall world size, you can take a look at the "World Map" picture, where i marked the borders of the area Act 1 occupies.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/24/8j6k.png


2) Character creation and development

2.1 Races.
M&MX creators offer us 4 races to depict our party members from. Those being: human, elf, dwarf and orc. The difference between them lies in starting stats, certain level of mastery they can advance to in different skills, names of the classes for each race to choose from, appearences, and minor starting race-dependant bonus, like elf having +5 evade, +10 earth resistance from the beggining.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/34/c2om.png

2.2 Classes.
Only three classes are at our disposal to choose from for each race. Basically we are given three same classes for each race, being: warrior, archer, mage (so it goes like: Human Warrior, Human Mage, Human Archer/Elf Warrior, Elf Mage, Elf Archer, etc.). The difference between them is: how they are named, ex: Mercenary (HW) against Barbarian (OW); their promotions; level of mastery they can achieve in a certain skill and appearences.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/15/nkwx.png

2.3 Class promotions.
Each class has a promotion to be achieved through the game. There will be only one, against two in the later M&M games. It will give one additional ability to the character, no other bonuses are know about at the current moment.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/543/81ab.png

2.4 Character customization.
After choosing a race and class it is time to customize character appearences. You have a wide variety of two drawn pictures for each gender (one male body/one female body), each in turn having two faces you can switch between (giving us four different portraits to sum it up).

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/844/vi97.png

2.5 Skills.
Developers have cropped all non-combat related skills like: trap find/disarm, repair, trade, identify (there will be a spell), diplomacy, perception...any other player-world interraction skill you can think of. Leaving three groups: weapon mastery skills, magic mastery skills and misc combat related skills like dual-wielding, dodge, evade, skill adding crit chance to a spell based attack, etc.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/837/y8jg.png

2.6 Magic.
Developers decided not to implement magic system from the later M&M games, where you were able to learn every spell at basic level, and advancing in magic mastery upgraded effects of each spell differently, based on the spell itself. Now it is more standard "magic mastery of certain level requirement for each spell". You can learn certain spells at basic level, certain at expert and so on. Spell effect doesn't change while you advance in magic mastery.

The following picture will show you all Air magic school spells (basic to GM), that will be available in the game.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/199/yo0c.png

Spell description:

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/163/x8j6.png

There will be no Item Enchant spell, in case anybody is wondering.

2.7 Inventory.
We will have combined inventory now, each item occupying one slot. Also no paper-dolls (items won't be shown on player's picture being dressed) Equiping this or that item won't alter character picture in any way.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/593/n50l.png

3) Character/world interaction.
Due to absence of non-combat related skills, player gaming experience is limited mostly to combat, opening objects (chests, barrels), getting buffs (one buff statue in Sorpigal, one in Peninsula). There is one quest in the first act, which implies on giving the freedom of choice to a player (you can kill or let go bandit leader), other than this, there are no player-choise driven situations.

4) Combat.
This is what it is all about. Judging from absence of non-combat related skills, lack of player-world interaction besides engaging your enemies, and answers from developers themselves, LE are trying to create combat oriented game (tile- and turnbased gameplay fits this concept idealy). Unfortunately they are not succeeding here either. Combat is rather standard and despite the looks of it, doesn't provide you with enough tactical depth you would anticipate. Poor variety of character classes, lack of significant race dependant perks/abilities, standard skill set, absence of really valuable effects of tactical (not damage dealing) spells, ect. make the game unable to offer reach and thrilling combat experience. Not to go deep: you cann't aim anything in case it is not standing in the adjacent tile.
This meaning: if you have two or more opponents approaching you, apart in two or three tiles, you won't be able to target specific one to use a spell on or attack from distance (with an arrow, for ex.). Those attacks will be delivered randomly (or you may use area damage spell) to any enemy standing in the same tile. This was mentioned a hundred times to de

EDIT: NEW REVIEW AFTER 25 HOURS OF PLAYING FULL RELEASE...


LOVED IT, even better than I thought it would be. I never meant to compare this title to the old series coz I didnt care to do so to begin with!

For me it's old school rpg coz its a 4 party, turn-based, 1st-person game.

Totally different from what EA gave us and REALLY fun to play...for me its the opposite of Skyrim and I think the devs did excellent job to bring something that goes the opposite direction from today's mainstream rpgs.

In my opinion: Well-balanced, tough fights on warrior-mode, open world-meaning that there are some enemies that you have to comeback even in Act 1 in order to fight 'em after you beefed up in levels, better AI and monster behavior, better skill/magic/buff system, smooth heroes/enemy movement and so on.

Yes, they could have added some extras to make it really great game, but I think it's an awesome start. I understand that there are ppl who are disappointed coz they expected something else along the lines of an exact copy of an older MM game with modern engine/graphics...BUT I'M EXTREMELLY HAPPY the way this game is AS IT IS!!!

Hope next one in line is a monster...good battles to all the brothers who are enjoying MMX.





OLD REVIEW: Loved it even with its early access faults...when they balance enough aspects of the game, it will be really great fun to play.

Not for people who expect a game like Skyrim, its for old school rpg fans with the benefit of auto-mapping...just wish they'd put more riddles along the way and maybe more quests affecting the outcome of the main story or the characters.

Sure the devs wont follow on all the great suggestions from the community but still it will be worth playing and enjoy yourself if the content of the final release is big enough.

To expect the perfect game on all aspects/parts of a game and on top of that to have the devs please all different kind of rpg fans is useless...READ the reviews and then DECIDE if that's the game you want to play or not...the game is a tile-based/turn-based and they should improve the parts of the game based on that idea...dont mind if they had the option for free movement but it shouldnt be a pre-requirement to play an rpg-game like this...there are tons of other rpg games for that.

To owners of NVIDIA GTX 6** series graphics cards.
Please be aware that the forums had complaints that on systems with GTX 6** cards the framerate may be very low even on high-end computers. There was a bug in the 3D engine reported that may be related and is not yet fixed. If you are unsure which graphics card you have, you may want to check this before making a purchase.

If you loved the M&M 1-5 games (and have a graphic card that can handle it), you may actually enjoy the game just for the fan-factor. It may not be the expected "big sequel" but it is solid and entertaining.
If you are new to M&M however, or you have just played "Heroes of Might and Magic" so far, this game may disappoint you.
Also if you are looking for a "Legend of Grimrock"-like RPG, be warned that this game has a very different feel to it. While the game-mechanics are similar, the gameplay actually feels a lot more static and not as action-oriented.

1. The game itself

M&M 10 is playing after the story of Heroes of Might and Magic 6. The gameplay and "feel" of the game however is mostly based on Might and Magic 3-5.

The game is a "stepper" with turn-based combat. This means you move through the world 1 step at a time and there is no free movement. If you encounter an opponent the game stops and switches to a turn-based combat mode. You then give your party members commands to attack, defend or use magical powers. Once you have done that the round switches to your enemies who will do the same until either you or your opponent drops dead, whatever comes first.

Since the gameplay is based on M&M 3-5 fans of the series will find some nostalgic elements, like barrels containing liquid that buffs your attributes, riddle chests and the like.

The story is solid but unfortunately also pretty generic. (I won't spoil it here though, so that you can still experience the fun yourself)

The map is unfortunately -again- rather generic. Where M&M 1-5 featured treetop houses, cities in the sky and even space-ships, all you got in M&M10 is pretty standard villages. Not even your run-off-the-mill castle. A little more fantasy wouldn't have hurt the game here.

The size of the map is not large but "medium". So where the description says "3 towns, 1 city, 20 dungeons" it literally means just that. Except that they don't mention that some of the "dungeons" literally have just 1 room.

Graphics quality is ... not good. The game looks like it was more or less pieced together by using whatever texture or model was laying around at that time. Thus some objects are very nice and detailed, but the majority unfortunately looks blurry and washed out even on "ultra" settings.

The sound quality is acceptable. However the soundtrack is quite generic and not very memorable.

In total the game is fun with enough solid gameplay to keep you occupied for like a week.

2. The downsides

The game was produced on a tight budget by Limbic Entertainment. A small German company that has never before produced RPGs or any AAA-class games at all. In fact: they stated that they usually do "social and flash games" and their greatest success so far was "Mein Ponyhof 2", a horse-barn simulation for girls.
They also stated in the comments on their blog that M&M10 was a "test" for Ubisoft to see wether or not people would still spend money on the series and that a "real M&M sequel" would only be considered if the "test" was a big enough economic success.
They chose the only 3D engine they knew, which happened to be Unity3D. (If you ever played "Temple Run 2" on Android - it's the same engine.)
People have reported performance issues with the game graphics - some of which may be due to the engine and others due to poor programming.

I'm actually very sorry to say that but all of the above and especially the tight budget actually shines through. And unfortunately not just in the fact that all horses in the game have beautiful textures.

Also there is the issue of the mandatory UPlay client, which requires that on top of Steam you have to create an UPlay account.
This pain has been eased a bit recently as the UPlay client can be started in offline mode and the game does no longer require you to click "play" in UPlay again once you clicked "play" in Steam, but UPlay is still a show-stopper for many people. Thus you might want to think about whether or not you are okay with having to register with UPlay to run this game.

There are some bugs. It was MUCH worse during the Early Access, but some issues are still there - unfortunately. (As an advice: if your game freezes mid-combat, pressing [CTRL]+[ALT]+R will "resume" the battle. Trust me, sooner or later you may need that key-combo.)

I do hope however that most of that will be fixed in a future patch - I guess, so hope we all!

3. Not included in the game:

Despite what the store page tells you this game does NOT include a free modding editor. The "modding kit" is actually just a resource pack for Unity Pro, that requires you to purchase the Unity Pro editor which is NOT included in this package and costs about 1500 USD.

4. For "digital deluxe" purchase

Please be aware that most of the DLC content that you are buying is not available yet. Also currently there is no release date that I know of.

The "digital soundtrack" is 30 minutes of unmodified in-game music encoded as 128KBit joint-stereo MP3. Despite what the store-page tells you, you are NOT getting the "official soundtrack on audio CD".
The files don't show up in your Steam library. You find them in your installation folder.

Also note that people have reported issues with activating Might & Magic 6 that was supposed to come with the game.

Furthermore note, that I experienced difficulties with the achievements. You need to earn a certain amount of virtual currency by getting achievements to unlock additional content, including an additional dungeon. However, I experienced that the achievements don't unlock properly and thus I have been unable to access any of that.
I don't know if you can actually buy some of this virtual currency via UPlay to "work-around" the issue. Personally I decided not to look for that option.

4. Limitations

- The version for Apple OSes is not yet available. I have heard of no release date just yet.
- The 32-Bit version of the game is limited to medium texture quality and voice-over is deactivated.
- The game has some performance issues. People have reported that the game maxed out their CPU and at least one person claimed the game has literally fried his laptop and damaged his hardware due to the performance problems.
