    As a hardcore Might and Magic fan, I tend to apreciate this kind of RPG that unfourtunatly, seems to be lost in time. This kind of old fashioned approach to gaming is extremely addictive, and enough ...

    disappointing for M&M series fans

    Rated on October 21, 2004 by vastb005

    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 r...

    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...

    Decent game gets thrashed by fans of the series.

    Rated on January 11, 2006 by Geosapient

    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...

    Awful and uninspired.

    Rated on June 26, 2007 by KingLim

    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....

    Rated on September 14, 2006 by FriendBear

    I actually like this game even though i'm giving it a pretty harsh review, its the sort of game that when it works, its a pretty decent game and its fun too. However, once the bugs pop up it becomes ...

    Rated on July 03, 2013 by Diggfinger

    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 ne...

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

    Rated on August 19, 2005 by Govvy

    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 scr...
