    Capybara Games needs to be commended for taking a franchise that nobody cares about any more and turning it into something that deserves undivided attention by using an innovation, beautiful art and smart game design to keep the gameplay addicting.

    The strategy game we never knew we needed, but now we don't know what we'd do without. [Feb 2010, p.78]
  3. Even if the DNA of its forebears is barely apparent, such a bold, brilliant transformation certainly involves something a little like magic. [Dec 2009, p.100]
  4. The five campaigns make for a huge journey that melds together seamlessly. There's tons of variety, and the challenges are truly refreshing. Single and multi-card multiplayer round out the package nicely, but there's no online component.

    Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes offers a totally new battle concept for turn-based rpg’s. The puzzle-styled confrontations require patience and tactical guile, but despite the ingenuity, it remains accessible, challenging and varied. Recommended for rpg-fans and puzzle-lovers.
  6. Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is possibly the best kept secret of 2010. The game offers fantastic strategic battles, combined with interesting puzzle elements. Because the battles are easy to learn, but quite difficult to master, strategy fans will love this game.
  7. It's not Might and Magic the JRPG, but it is both a solid entry into the Might and Magic universe, and the Puzzle-RPG genre.

This is such an ingenious I picked this up intended to have it for traveling this xmas, but it has become a guilty bedtime pleasure. This is such an ingenious combination of match-3 and SRPG that it has been a joy to play from the first tutorial. The high fantasy is well done and the game play is super tight and satisfying. I was not a fan of Puzzle Quest at all, but this charming gem is an elegant fusion of SRPG and puzzlers. Highly recommended. Expand

    One of the best games yet for the DS! Anyone who enjoyed Puzzle Quest will like this, because ultimately it's better. The campaign One of the best games yet for the DS! Anyone who enjoyed Puzzle Quest will like this, because ultimately it's better. The campaign isn't quite as long, but it's less repetitive, and the battle mode provides worthy extra replayability. The graphics are full of oldschool charm, and the music is great. A few tiny glitches have no noticeable effect on gameplay. I hope to see at least one sequel, if not more. Expand

This is no One guy down there has claimed that you only have to play for 10 minutes to get hooked, but it took me a frustrating two hours. This is no diss on Ms. (or Mr?) "Hailey M," however I would like to stress that if you're not into these kinds of games you will be in for a long haul. Again, not a bad thing whatsoever. Just keep it in mind! The game will force your brain to eat itself for breakfast lunch and dinner... Expand

    Don't let the match-3 appearance fool you. It's actually a unique and imaginative strategy/puzzle game, and it's executed very well. It mightDon't let the match-3 appearance fool you.
