...is on sale on Steam.

I have never played any of this series so this is a first for me. I'll probably have many questions when I get started. I know there are a lot of fans of this series out there.

I hope you have fun with it. I have played Might and Magic 4 and 5 (World of Xeen), and Might and Magic 6. I thought they were very enjoyable. I'll look forward to hearing what you think of Legacy. wave

I loved them all but especially MM7, and played it several times. I think I bought Legacy a while back. If it's anything like the earlier games it'll be blast, Rowan. They were great games. Lots of humour, decent "character" development, lots of freedom.

I bought the deluxe edition of MMX and it included MM6. Does it matter which order I play the games?

No, it shouldn't matter; you don't need to play them in order. wave

RPGwatch has a rather informative review about the game, link:
http://www.rpgwatch.com/show/article?articleid=241


They like it very much, here a big chunk of the conclusion from the review:

Quote:
Overall, the game was fantastic, particularly for a budget title from a small developer. I had a blast playing the game and more than once found myself playing far longer than intended to do "just one more" map or quest. Limbic clearly has a passion for, and a deep understanding of, the factors that made the Might and Magic games classics. Throughout the development process, they listened to their core audience and actually made changes requested by the community. The game was released with no major bugs at all and even the trivial ones were promptly cleaned up via patch........ The game plays like a M&M game, with modern graphics and modern game mechanics (do we really pine for the days of needing graph paper to map, or even the days when there were in-game maps but they couldn't be annotated?). In a big callback to an easter egg from an earlier M&M game, there's a bonus dungeon that mimics the developer's offices.


And a quote about the riddles and puzzles:

Quote:
There's puzzles and riddles. There's a variety of monsters to kill and a varied world to kill them in. While the world isn't MM6-huge (very few games are, after all), it never feels small. There's character development out the wazoo. Simply put, Might and Magic Ten: Legacy can wear the Might and Magic mantle with pride, unlike that game released after MM8 which won't be named in polite company. Limbic got it right, folks. It's just plain fun to play. If you enjoyed the M&M series or the Wizardry series back in the day, quit dithering and buy the game. Trust me on this one.


A quote about if you need to have played the other MM games:

Quote:
There's no requirement to have previous experience with the M&M franchise. While I do think old farts such as yours truly will have a greater appreciation for the game and be able to glory in a heaping helping of nostalgia while playing, there's plenty for newcomers to like. The game stands up well on its own merits.

No, not right now. I have a ton of games (litterally, I fear!); I have also have a ton of work to do, both for my job and at home.

I've started Legacy. I'm enjoying it but am still at the point where I am getting used to the controls. I hope I made a strong enough party. I have a tank, another almost tank, an archer mage combo, and I'm a human with a little bit of everything.

I usually have a cleric type who can wield a mace to Mastery or GM (cant remember if GM is possible). Clerics and mages have quite different specializations and the GM spells for each are amazing, depending on which path you take.

Actually, I might start up a game, since the new Thief is meh and I'm still stuck in Witcher.

I've got a Barbarian orc with a two-handed mace, a Druid elf with a bow, a Defender dwarf a sword and shield, and I'm a Mercenary human with a bow and sword. All of us except the barbarian have at least one spell to fall back on. So far I'm surviving, sometimes barely.

Sounds like fun, Rowan. Keep us posted about your progress. "Barely surviving" describes me very well in most RPGs. lol

Argh. Again with the problems. For some reason I can't log in to Ubisoft/Uplay. It keeps telling me my internet connection doesn't work.
