    disappointing for M&M series fans

    This was a long awaited game for Might and Magic series fans and probably for that reason doubly disappointing. Very buggy, the first and only patch published at the same time as the game failed to resolve many issues a... Read Full Review

    Disappoininting end to the series.

    I was looking forward to playing the M&M IX despite the poor reactions from both critics and game players. I was disappointed to find out for myself that they were right. First off, you can annotate anything on the map... Read Full Review

    Decent game gets thrashed by fans of the series.

    Might & Magic IX is a decent game. I've gone through the game multiple times now. Each time using a different party. The classes are relatively balanced. Each time I go through the game (regardless of party) I end up at ... Read Full Review

    Awful and uninspired.

    I have nothing good to say about this supposedly last installation of the Might & Magic series other that it did quite a commendable effort of converting the old 2D look to a fully 3D environment. But even so, the ch... Read Full Review

    Parts of MM9 makes it the best game in the series - too bad its unfinished...

    Having completed MM6+7+8 it seemed natural to turn to the last game in the series as well: MM9. This game has received some heavy criticism. In fact, I almost did not want to play it due to all the negative reviews I rea... Read Full Review

    You can see why 3DO died on this type of quality!

    Upon loading up the game you get an intro of a scrolling scroll! With a voice over of nun other than, General Ma’Tark from Star Trek DS9. If you didn’t know, he is the Klingon with one eye! So the scrolling intro tells u... Read Full Review
