    Might And Magic IX

    Just bought it along with Doom3 and Thief3 on a whim. :D

    Purely because the screenshots on back of packaging kind of reminded me of Eye of The Beholder games.

    I dont care much about the graphics but is the gameplay any good?

    " Overall: Might & Magic IX falls below the bar set by current RPG's like Morrowind and Wizardry 8. The extremely behind-the-times graphics, frustrating interface and game mechanics, and lackluster plot all lead to a gaming experience that's more tedium than it's worth. The Might & Magic series has come a long way since its early days in the world of Xeen. Unfortunately, it appears as though it's come a long way down from the lofty standards it set for the entire RPG genre once upon a time" :thumbsdow

    never mind 2 good games out of 3 isn't bad. You'll enjoy thief3 and doom is looking good (so far).

    I loved those EOTB games on the amiga many moons ago. Looking forward to Morrowind 2 as well (I've hear a rumor). I hope they use something similar to the far cry engine or HL2 source engine to render it as that'd be damn fine:)

    I was in Game today and notices it was in the 3 for £20 range may suggest that you take it back if still un-opened and ask to swap it for Diablo II which I notice is in the same range (that if you got it from Game).
