    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 another very strong entry into what has traditionally been a very strong string of games. Making it specifically for the DS may have been a bold move, but it has been a successful one. The team behind this really seem to understand the core series staples and also understand development for the DS very well. The game itself is a prequel for Heroes V, so for fans of the series this is an absolute must have. And it sure doesn Expand
