Default Good Old Games - Might & Magic 6 Pack LE Now Available

September 3rd, 2009, 18:11
Good Old Games lives up to last month's promo and now has the Limited Edition of New World Computing's classic rpg series, Might & Magic, available in a six pack containing Might & Magic 1-6.
The price is $9.99.
Here's the description:
Might and Magic is a series of first person perspective role playing games, dating back to 1986. The games are fantasy-themed, but there is a bit of science fiction lurking just beyond the veil of sorcery and monsters. In each installment you lead a party of adventurers on various quests, on one of many worlds scattered in the Might and Magic universe. The games use solid mechanics, similar to pen-and-paper RPGs, and offer great character development possibilities. The Limited Edition 6-Pack consists of Might and Magic 1 to 6, plus the bonus adventure Swords of Xeen…
Thanks to forum member mytgroo for the heads up.
More information.

Truly a great deal at that price. I would purchase it myself if I didn't already have the M&M Platinum Edition.

I won a free game on Twitter a while back and was trying to decide what to buy when I heard about this coming last month … needless to say I grabbed it *all* today!

M&M 6 is a lot better than the previous ones 4 and 5. I gave up after those. Not sure why, but they weren't as fun as Wizardry. Maybe too arcade like when compared to Wizardry.

This might sound odd, but I did play M&M9 and 6 is a lot like that game but better.

Despite all my rage.

Wikipedia says they used the Lithtech engine for MM9. Amazing graphics compared to the old crappy engine.

Amazing graphics? Maybe, but I think 6 is pretty good for how old it is and gameplay is ten times better. It may not have as many character classes, or even races, as 9 but it defintaly made me rethink my opion of M&M.

Hope they get 7 and 8 on GoG as well.

That's interesting - I couldn't really stand 6! 4&5 are the best of the lot IMHO, 3 is one of the hardest games out there, and I spent rather too much of my life on 2 which had the hack/slash/loot balance down to a tee.

I also loved 4 & 5. Then I couldn't get into 6, was bored by 7 and gave up. 8 was a rip-off, 9 a disaster.

I don't know maybe I'm just strange. When compared to wizardry it's childlike and boring. Although this was a very long time ago when I played 4 and 5. I'll be playing those after 6, maybe this time it'll be more fun. I highly doubt it though.

6 seems better. At least the art direction is a lot better. Gameplay as well. The character promotions and quests are entertaining. Story is a little weak, but not too bad. Although I'm sure there is going to be a big bad foozle to kill at the end. Right now it's just figuring out what the deamons are and those temple of Baa fanatics.

I still think Wizardry kicks M&M butt in just about everything like art, gameplay and character progression, but 6 is a step in the right direction. I regret giving up on the series after 5.

Despite all my rage.

9 - a disaster, yes. But actually, I did finish it.

I agree - M&M has to me always been kind of Wizardry Light. Still, they were great fun, 4 and 5 especially. IMNSHO, of course.
