Frankly, with the drought of real RPGs out there right now, the Might and Magic Trilogy is a godsend. I found the games to be fun, absorbing, and well worth my money. They still remain a standard to be compared to, and the game makers today should stand up and take note that classics like these still run the show.
If you enjoyed the Might and Magic series you will enjoy Swords of Xeen. If anything, I think it may be slightly tougher than the rest of the series and the puzzles a little more devious. It was, after all, written by a group of gamers. I'm not sure if it is available anywhere else except the trilogy CD, but 4 good games at such a price is great value. On the other hand, if you want something in a similar vein but more up to date checkout Anvil of Dawn by the same company. It is brilliant (but that's another story).

Uff, viel Monster fürs Geld: Hier bekommen Sie drei ernsthaft komplexe Rollenspiele serviert und sparen dabei ordentlich Festplattenplatz. Unter dem »Value for Money«-Aspekt eine ordentliche Sammlung, aber (wieder mal) ohne jegliche Verbesserungen bei Grafik, Sound oder Spieldesign.
