4.0 out of 5 stars here's a hint on how to get #7 to work August 22, 2004
By Sahara
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got Might & Magic 7 to work by the following:

1. Right-click on the icon on your desktop and select Properties. Click on the Compatability tab. Click the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and pick Windows 95. Then click OK at the bottom.

2. Click START on your desktop. Select ALL PROGRAMS, then select 3DO, select Might and Magic VII, then Might and Magic VII Configuration Utility. Under Video, select Software 3D, then launch Might and Magic VII.

The sound for the game might not be perfect, but at least you get to play!! I love this game! You will want to play at least twice so you can choose the Light Path and the Dark Path.

If you do choose the Dark Path, be careful.. there is a bug in the game. There are two quests where you have to pick up "lich jars". It is best to get both sets of lich jars in your pack before you turn any of them in, because if you fulfill the wrong quest first the other set will never be there for you to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Compendium. . . May 8, 2003
By --
The four most recent additions to the classic RPG franchise, "Might & Magic," bundled in one fairly priced compendium, make for an excellent purchase. While none of these games are, or ever have been, ground-shaking in terms of originality or graphical finesse, they make make up for their shortcomings with deceptively addictive gameplay. One of these games alone might be worth the price of admission (save perhaps for the disappointing 2002 installment, simply called "Might & Magic IX"), but combined, for fans of the genre and those "Might & Magic" die-hards, it's a splendid bundle worth your attentions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The entire series of one of the best RPGs next to DnD September 12, 2003
By A Customer
Taking a look at some other RPG series on the market, Final Fantasy, Baldurs Gate/Everwinter Nights, all that fun stuff, there comes to leave a genre of game that fits the RPG bill perfectly: Might and Magic. This is the best of the M&M series into 1 package.
MM6 - Although the dungeons were incredibly lengthly, and the character selection graphics funny, the game itself took me months to complete in its entirety.
MM7 - Easily the best of the M&M series, this game shows some of the best points an RPG can have, especially how you get your own castle and choose your side (good guy or bad guy). Another one that took me a month or two to complete.
MM8 - Not as good as story line as MM7, but the game engine features some impressive enhancements over MM6 and MM7 that make the game very worth while... Although, as soon as you get Dragons in your party, their strength alone allow you to be able to maul anything rather easily. Took me about four months on and off to play.
MM9 - New game engine, which was sparked by the complaigners getting what they wanted... This game wasn't as good as previous games, but the mechanics of the game somehow mutated the original M&M game elements into a more "fit for the future" perspective (ie: taking it into a more rigid hiearachyal system of advancements of character class). Although the graphics were nice and the game play wasnt really that bad, the game was easily completed in about a 2 weeks time, and the Lich advancement wasnt able to be reached until 3 dungeons till end of game (where as all other top character advancements were done easily within 7-10 dungeons of the last dungeon, ie: lich quest wasnt able to be completed until WAY TOO into the ending parts of the game). Not bad, but could of been much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Might & Magic......and XP ? October 12, 2002
UPDATE April 25 2013, original review will follow after.

All of the Might & Magic games are now available, for a very cheap price, on [...] , also know as "good ol' games", a website that specialises in making older titles run on modern operating systems, ( win XP, Win 7 , Win 8) . I wrote this original review over 10 years ago, and the games were getting long in the tooth then. I can only say that it really isn't worth your while buying this boxed collection because of the GOG releases. Although I'm sure everyone knows about GOG nowadays !
Most of what I said in the original review below is still valid, and they are still some of my favourite RPGs. Since they came out we've had Oblivion, Skyrim, The Witcher and a whole other host of great RPGs. BUT the M&M series is still great. Here's the original review:-

Well, I've played and completed all of the MM games in this package, and enjoyed them all, even though MMIX was not the most straight forward of games when it came to actually learning how to gain the classes you wanted, it was still extremely rewarding. They all are. They are all long games ( with perhaps MMIX being the shortest, but still long, if you get my drift !)

Whilst these games are not the most graphically appealing games on the market, in my opinion, they are some of the best RPGs out there, even now, with a wonderfully designed magic system and a fabulous realtime OR turn based combat mechanism ( you choose). Epic adventure, 1000s of baddies, tonnes of quests, you really cannot go wrong. My only issue, is as far as the original releases go, only numbers 6 and 9 work on the awesome XP operating system, so 7 and 8 are destined to be played on your old WIN 98 pc. Unless, that is, they have modified the games for this boxset.

While I'm sure the game is terrific, I'll never know, because it won't run on Windows 8. A new M&M game for newer platforms would be very welcome.
