So, even if you’ve already got M&M 7 or 8 installed on your machine, Arcomage is definitely worth getting and highly recommended. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it’s more addictive than crack. It’s available for download from 3DO’s website for around 13 bucks. Considering that’s about the same as a movie and popcorn these days, Arcomage definitely provides a lot of entertainment for the price.

[окончание расшифровки] ...Что будем теперь делать, доктор? Нам нужны новые идеи... Как вы говорите? Сделать jigsaw puzzle на тему обелисков из Heroes 3?.. [долгая пауза] Да, занятно... Боевой движок приспособить под шахматы? Неплохо, неплохо... все равно скоро выкидывать... [пауза] Ну тогда ведите сюда... [конец записи; достоверность пленки не установлена].

You can change the starting and victory conditions, but that’s not enough to recommend this to anyone who owns MMVII or MMVIII — the only real audience for this title. One huge caveat: You must download ARCOMAGE from 3DO’s Web site, but its machine specific — you can’t transfer the game to another PC. If you want to play on your laptop, be sure you download it directly onto the laptop. But my advice would be to just slick with Solitaire.

I'm well aware of the circumstances surrounding Arcomage. As I said before, it was a game within Might & Magic VII that was so popular 3DO was talked into releasing a standalone version. I'm sure this review isn't going to change the feelings of those who loved Arcomage in its original form. In fact, I'm sure I'll hear a few comments from those people regarding how good they think this game is. I'm writing this review more for those who didn't play Might & Magic VII, who don't know what Arcomage is, and who only know that Arcomage is a Magic: The Gathering clone. Arcomage comes at a cheap price but in its standalone form, it's simply a fantasy card game that becomes repetitive extremely fast. Perhaps Arcomage would have been better left in the Might & Magic realm.
