Still One of the Finest Games of its Genre,
This review is from: Might and Magic 8: Day of the Destroyer - PC (Video Game)
Look, take it from someone who spent hours playing the first King's Quest on a PCjr, the Might and Magic series is still going strong! I hadn't played the series since the Xeen days, and picked up VII at a store one day for kicks. I was blown away with where they had taken the game. It didn't take me long to track down a copy of VIII. The engine may "seem a little dated" but I feel it's the best tool for the job, and the graphics are still very nice and clean. The "movies" in the game are well done and many other little details like change-of-day and light sources makes it all the better.
Everything you want from a RPG and more; little inside jokes for past MM players and great story lines. If you're looking for hours (perhaps weeks depending on your devotion) of non-stop slashing and casting and stealing and adventuring, look no further.
