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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cool game, brings back memories and all. Some very annoying gameplay design. However, presently it literally takes over 10 minutes to load a savegame from act2+. Developers do not seem interested in optimizing it. Stay away if you value your time.

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.

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 love "Might & Magic". I play M&M7, M&M8 with great pleasure. Some times I want to get back to M&M9. I have stoped to play M&M10, because the process became terribly boring. With M&M10 I have got a gift, it was M&M7, so I have played in M&M10 about 10 (30 - this is incorrect display) hours and I don't want to get back to this game, and have played in M&M7 more then 40 hours and I want to play it again.

If youre a hardcore fan of old school \D&D then yes, this game is for you. Otehrwise, ugh. Game is stupidly hard and crashes often. Forget the default party, its so insanely hard to get anywhere with them you'll just want to throw the game away. Grab 2 mages unless you like screaming and tearing your hair out. Shame cause it is a fun game for old school fans, but ridiculous frustrating to play.

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)

Only thing is you can't grind so I hope you didn't make a dumb mistake on levelling your guys. At certain points in the game I could not beat the next encounter, and had wiped out all other monsters for levelling, and so I had to...

... I had to edit my savegames.

Other than that, old school nirvana.

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.
