Might & Magic X - Review Roundup #2

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-25 00:58:42

Here is the second roundup of reviews for Might & Magic X: Legacy.

Gamereactor - 6/10

For those of us who grew up with Might & Magic there is a certain nostalgic charm to revisiting the old landmarks, but that charm quickly wears off. Much of what made the old games special is missing and it doesn't take long before we become painfully aware of the strings and mechanics that hold the game together.

Lazygamer - 7.5/10

There’s no getting around the fact that Might and Magic X: Legacy is going to be a niche game. They just don’t make RPGs like this anymore, but there is a ton of love for coded into this game. It could have done with some more polish overall, but it’s still actually decent fun to play and it’ll stretch that grey matter of yours.

And for last a new impression from Digitally Downloaded.

This short piece isn't meant to be a review, just initial impressions, because I know a lot of DDNet readers are keen on the game and I did wanted to highlight how surprised and impressed I am that Ubisoft did resist the temptation to overhaul the core Might & Magic gameplay in order to better commercialise it. I'll be playing this like mad to have a review live first thing on Monday, but, while I'm not sure where the game will sit amongst the entire Might & Magic franchise, I am convinced that this is going to be one of my favourite games this year.
