The game world is divided in to around a dozen distinct areas, these are a fairly decent size each and often contain a town and a number of dungeons, the level on enemy that spawns in each area is fixed so going to some more difficult areas at early or mid game can be suicide, each enemy be they humanoid or a monster usually come in 3 types, each one being harder than the previous, combat usually consists of walking up to a enemy and mashing the attack key, you can also fight from range with a bow (highly recommended) or with magic spells, the are 10 schools of magic each with around a dozen spells including defensive and offensive spells, these use spell points which can be restored by resting or potions, potions are made by combining 3 different herbs and other potions.
The graphics are pretty minimal as you'd imagine but still decent enough to be playable, the game unlike many older ones runs with very few problems on Windows 7, 8 and 10 so it's well worth giving it a try.… Expand
Sep 13, 2013One of the very best games I have ever been fortunate enough to play.

This game has been on my machine(s) since I first bought it in 1998 and I can't imaging 2-3 years going by without a replay.
I HIGHLY recommend you getting the unofficial patch by Gray Face. It fixes the few bugs that only die-hards know about, and it will allow you to remap your controls.
If you're an old-school RPG fan, GET THIS RIGHT NOW. You are a lucky person to get to play this for the first time. If you're not, get it anyways. Magic like this doesn't come around very often.… Expand
Dec 28, 2016A rare 10. It up there with Baldur's Gate 2 as far as best PC RPG's ever.
Pros: -Graphics (they're dated, but it reminds me of Doom, so IA rare 10. It up there with Baldur's Gate 2 as far as best PC RPG's ever.
-Graphics (they're dated, but it reminds me of Doom, so I enjoy them)
-Gameplay (you can do turn-based OR real-time)
-Trying to find specific people/locations
-Late game is kind of silly (just hold down attack button and win)
I discovered this rather recently and I'm glad I did!… Expand

Sure the graphics look dated and are uglyIt may take a while to understand the mechanics, but when you do, you're in for one hell of a game. Sure the graphics look dated and are ugly to some but there's so much to do and explore here. There's a very good turn based combat system, character creator and level up system. A must have for any RPG fan.… Collapse

Even though it can very hard on your first couple of playthroughs, even though the role playing elements are minimal, even though it is 13 years old, even though might becomes pretty useless near the end of the game and magic is the only way to go. This game is just pure addiction. Always someone to visit, always a skill to increase, always some monsters to kill, always a dungeon to clear and always some more fun to be had. I was pretty clueless about D'n'D games when I first played this and notwithstanding the fact that I was finding it extremely tough going I still wanted to play on. One dungeon alone took me 12 hours to complete. But I just had to carry on. The story is appealing, there are some very good spells, a wide variety of monsters (and plenty of them) and of course you always want to make your party more powerful - there are plenty of ways to do this. Throw in some wonderful music, some well hidden tricks and bonuses and the fact that you can play on after the end and go and slaughter all the things that gave you pain earlier in the game - all this makes for a great experience. I like trying to make games easier to beat, and am constantly looking for ways to do so. This game gave me that opportunity like no other. I must have finished it about 20 times and each time has given me ample satisfaction. Then after I've made the game quite easy to beat I look for ways to make it even harder than it was originally. Again, this game will allow you to do that (and not by just moving a slider) - play with 4 knights for example. Easily the best of the Might and Magic series and one that I still play even today.… Expand
