Legends of Might and Magic is a team-based fantasy-themed first-person 3D action game. With the exception of the training mode, the game can only be played online. The game focuses on a competition between two teams, each with its own character classes. The good team consists of the Paladin, Druid and Sorceress, while the evil one includes the Heretic, Archer and Warrior. The team compete in one of the four following modes, which are similar to those of Counter-Strike:
Sword in the Stone: Similar to Capture-the-Flag mode of online FPSs, it involves finding a special sword, grabbing it, and reaching the exit.
Rescue the Princess: The evil team is guarding a princess, while the good team is trying to rescue her. This mode reminds of the hostage rescue mode in Counter-Strike.
Warlord Escape: Involves escorting a warlord to safety, similarly to the VIP missions in Counter-Strike.
Slay the Dragon: The two teams are trying to kill a dragon while fighting each other.
