The Destroyer is again walking the land. The legendary planeswalker Escaton has been seen in Jadame, and the very elements themselves have felt his presence. In the four corners of the world, gates to the planes of fire, air, earth, and water have opened, and denizens of those realms are sweeping across the lands. Should they converge at the Conflux Crystal, Jadame, Enroth, and Erathia will be no more. Lead a band of rugged adventures on a most perilous mission to save the world as we know it. This is not necessarily an adventure just for knights and clerics; you may need to enlist the aid of the darker races, trolls, dark elves, and minotaurs to see this through to the end. You must save the kingdoms from ruin or watch as the lands are decimated forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Might and Seen it Before 8 March 10, 2000
I was a big fan of M&M 6 and 7 (and all the previous ones), but it became painfully obvious after 2 minutes game time that New World made zero effort to make a new game. Simply put, this is M7M7 with a few new, and frankly annoying, new changes.
The first change involves the idea of the entire party sprouting from one central character (but not done as well as Baldur's Gate). This is marginally interesting.
The second difference is the new character classes. The Vampire, Dragon, Dark Elf, and Troll are added. Now whoever though that the Vampire should replace the Paladin (the fighter/cleric motif) must have been high. The one tolerable part of this idea is the new spells specific to each race. Frankly, though, its less than wonderful.
The AI seems to have improved slightly, though its weird that walking on a certain point guarantees that Pirates will appear from nowhere and attack. Also, the storyline seems a bit more cohesive.
All and all its a decent game (purely due to its having used such a good base design (aka MM6). Frankly, the designers should look at the original Might and Magic (still the best of the series), and try developing a game with a bit more thinking and a bit less formula.
It's worth buying, but don't expect anything new or wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good gameplay, old engine. April 28, 2000
Might and Magic VIII is a solid addition to this series. Yes, the engine is very dated, but fans of this series will not be too put off by this. The new playable races in this installment are a nice touch, although I would say that with a dragon in your party you have a big advantage. This is because it's basic flame attack uses no spell points and does a lot of damage. The dungeons in this game are not as huge as MM6, which in my opinion is just fine. While MM6 was a superior game, the dungeons did grow tiresome. Overall, this was an enjoyable game, worth the money it costs and I would recommend it to any fan of this series, as long as they can look past the dated graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars I REALLY wanted to hate this game... March 20, 2000
... but I couldn't.
I loved MMVI. Played it, finished it, played it again.
With VII, 3DO irritated me by using the same engine. I couldn't stand the new way they forced the classes -- it felt like they were penalizing all classes for the sake of penalizing them, without adding any advantages for this penalization. That, and the lackluster storyline and rushed feel of the world made me really dislike MMVII (enough to give it a 2-star review).
Seeing that they released MMVIII with the same engine and most of the same concepts, I expected much of the same. However, I didn't get that. Although the graphics and gameplay are similar, I got an immersive world that I REALLY enjoy playing in. Unlike VII, the quests are laid out in a very logical manner. Although the game isn't simple, you always feel like you're getting somewhere, without ever hitting one of those "brick wall" quests.
The addition of different races that are actually DIFFERENT makes the game very fun to play as well. Racial spells for Vampires and Elves are a nice touch. Being able to update your party with new characters is also great (though I'm pretty attached to the ones I have now).
Throw all of your preconceptions aside when walking around in this world -- those dragons in Garrott Gorge won't attack you the first time you see them (in fact, they're a good way to get rid of those pesky Nagas).
I know that I'll get a lot of flack for a 5-star review, but I find this game very fun and horribly addicting. And that is really what it's all about to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same only better March 8, 2000
By A Customer
I have played M&MVI,M&MVII and now M&MVIII. While most of the game layout was familiar there were a few differences where I had to read the manual to figure them out. I liked the idea of using the same engine for all three games. There wasn't the learning curve and bugs of a new engine and more time could be spent on a plot rather than better graphics. I also liked the idea of playing one character and adding or dismissing others as the game went along, kind of like Baulders Gate. They have also eliminated the annoying problem of bumping into NPC's and not being able to get past them, you just walk right through them. There was one change to the game where they didn't have a place to get food at the beginning islands so you couldn't just stay there and beef up your characters you were forced to do some exploring before your initial supply ran out. All in all I liked the improvements as well as revisiting an old friend. If you liked the other two this game is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for fans, but the engine is tired. March 3, 2000
Day of the Destroyer is polished, absorbing fun with a slightly better plot and a better coat of finish than the previous installment, For Blood and Honor. Hardcore fans may not like the new party system, where party members are somewhat pre-developed and recruited, giving you only one true player-developed character, but that really doesn't hinder the meat of the play: exploration, stat management, and battles. Dungeons seem bigger and more fleshed out tham those in part 7, without being the excruciating ordeals found in 6. Most of the changes are incremental - marginally improved graphics, a more polished interface, a bigger viewport, and mouselook (of sorts) - so if you're expecting a drastic leap (ala Xeen to 6), look elsewhere. The graphics are showing their age terribly - 3D acceleration has improved over 7, but still look decidedly 1996. The synopsis so far? Hardcore fans will be engaged, but lightweights and graphic tarts should look elsewhere. It's good to see this phase of the series end on a solid note, and I look forward to the next generation of Might and Magic games.
