Summary

I didn't like it.

The Good

It has some of the cool "Might And Magic" atmosphere.

The Bad

The game mostly consists of lots and lots of combat and running around trying to find items needed for quests.

The last few quests are extremely tedious and time-consuming, and require the player to fight extremely hard monsters. But just wait until the final dungeon: it's monotonous beyond belief. Really. I couldn't complete it without cheating and editing the stats of my characters. 'I don't see how anyone can finish it without extra help.

And the ending was the worst of all. After spending 2-3 hours fighting an endless stream of monsters in the final dungeon, the reward left me feeling like I wasted my time playing the game.

I heard Might And Magic III has a better finale, and I want to see it, but right now I'm turned off by Might And Magic.

The Bottom Line

Only play it if you want to finish all the Might And Magic games.
