Does the might and magic series play like this?
If so then I will buy that while waiting for this
No, Might & Magic is turn-based, while Grimrock will be real-time. Eye of the Beholder series plays like this as does Lands of Lore. Perhaps I should dig out my old EOB games...
wrong, you can play might & magic in real time too (at least part VI+)
but from what I've learnt Grimrock will be more crawly / solvy puzzly / fighty, while M&M is an exploring, fighting focused RPG
