Hi.

I bought this game, new, many, many years ago but have never got round to playing it as yet blush

Is it anything like Might & Magic VI - which I love think

Thanks.

I haven't played any of them Mad, but I hope someone that has will be along soon.

I think I h've played MM8 once upon a time. As I remember it is an RPG made by 3DO Studios and New World Computing.

There's a walkthrough here:

http://www.the-spoiler.com/RPG/New.World.Computing/might..magic.8.1.html

More information on this site:

http://ancienthomeofdragon2.homestead.com/MM8.html

It's been a while since I played it, so here are some info on the game from the game wiki site:

Great !! Thanks for that info, Karsten. Much appreciated grin

[ I knew you'd be right, BrownEyedTigre laugh ]

And maybe you'll get as tempted as I am to fit it in now, looney4labs wink

My brother played MM8. He says it had essentially the same game engine as MM6 and MM7, but you could recruit dragons to be members of your party and you could advance your necromancer members to be liches.

Hi Mad smile wave

I've played M&M8 several times. It's similar to M&M6, but easier, IMO. You start the game with one character, but you recruit more as you go along. I usually start with a necromancer, because he can cast the same spells as a sorcerer in the earlier games. You can add a knight, cleric, vampire, & another necromancer (with promotions for each) as you go along. You can dismiss any character you've added at any time, except for your main character. The best thing about the game, I think, is that you can add up to 3 dragons to your party. They are VERY powerful.

I'd say give it a try. I've been thinking about playing it again. Right now I'm playing M&M6 & having a hard time in Kriegspire Castle. I bought it from GOG & they fixed the bug that gave unlimited gold, so I'm having a hard time with only 200,000 gold!

Well, I installed it this afternoon and had a bit of a play but so far I don't like it as much as M&M6. It seems much more "restrictive" somehow whistle

Of course, I'll play some more before I might actually throw in the towel but it will have to get better (or probably I will have to get better) pretty smartish !! lol

Whilst both games start out in pleasant enough villages, looney4labs, to my mind the one in M&M 6 certainly offered better shops.
And the first enemies weren't so madly difficult to beat, either !!

Of course, it could very easily be my poor combat talents holding me back laugh but I do feel much more "pressured" at this start of M&M 8 than I ever did at the start of M&M 6 !!
[So maybe I should have said "pressured" rather than "restricted" in my previous post.]

But I will certainly have to "run away and live to fight another day" a lot more eek and for me, too much of that gets boring ....

Even worse, I read somewhere that the Pirates here (the first enemies) constantly regenerate rolleyes whereas in M&M 6 it was at least a year or more before anything regenerated - which was a massive bonus !!

Obviously I'll have more tries but I'm definitely NOT over excited at this moment wink

It gets better, Mad. Once you get your whole party together, it's pretty much the same as the other games. I was able to avoid most of the pirates at the beginning. Collect the cleric Frederick & head for the big temple on the other island. There are lots of shops on Dagger Wound Island, but they're hard to find.

Ahhhh Mad, I see. I don't like to feel pressured either. I must confess when I have to run to live to fight another day, I come back when I'm stronger and take great pleasure in stomping on the bad guys who chased me away earlier. I hope it gets better for you as you play. wave

I agree, Looney. What I love about RPGs is how you get better as you go along. It's fun to come back later & wipe out those bad guys like they were insects.
