Summary

A brilliant old school RPG, one of the best of its kind

The Good

Might and Magic III was very time occupying, and had an excellent storyline. The overall best part about mm3 is that it doesn't have a set linear plotline. You are able to explore as you please. The Isles of Terra was also one of the first of its kind, introducing new graphics and a new style of RPG into the world of gaming.

The Bad

Compared with the graphics and technology nowadays, this game is obsolete. There is one major drawback to this game; it only has one save game slot. You cannot go back to previous segments of the game.

The Bottom Line

A must-have for dedicated gamers. Might and Magic III was a big part of the foundation of todays computer games. Endless fun; this game was first released in 1991, and it's still one of the best there is.
