I managed to get hold of a boxed copy of this a few years back and it has to be about the best value game I've ever bought. The amount of gameplay here for $10 is ludicrous. I'm not hugely familiar with the first two games and these will probably be a bit too dated for most people but the rest of the series is still highly playable, especially World of Xeen (4 & 5) whichread more are both enormous games in their own right, and link together to form one collosal world.
The graphics are extremely large and colourful with an enormous variety of monsters. The games don't have a huge amount of story with them. There is some dialog but it's quite limited. Might and Magic games are about roleplaying at its more basic level, and you spend your time building up your characters and exploring gradually tougher areas. It's the gameplay that makes these titles and despite the simplicity they are always fun and completely absorbing. I would usually found myself playing them for hours when I'd just sat down to play for 20 minutes.
Just for World of Xeen on its own, this has to be an essential purchase for anyone who has an interest in RPG's. Add in the other games and this is just too good to turn down.

Probably the most complete, fun, and imaginative RPG's I've ever played come in this pack. Returning Might and Magic fans need not read any further - they know what they're getting with this package. For first time players, 4 & 5 are the best starting points for this series. The graphics have aged the best among these two, the games combine into one giant world, and it interfaceread more is straightforward.
Don't let the daunting task of starting a game and not knowing what the heck to do. Walk forward, use "s" to shoot your long ranged crossbow at the slime, "a" to attack him when he is upon you, and after you defeat it go to the tent ahead of you and get your first in-game quest. Take a few moments to learn the short cut keys, go over the inventory system, and then let the game take over.
Might and Magic 6, although not as immune to time as 4 & 5 are, is still a great, great game in the same vein as 4 & 5.

I don't know to say. Six so awasome games in one pack? WoW!
Might & Magic series has all what i expect from RPG's.
- Great story; shared with Heroes of Might & Magic series
- Immersive world
- Dozens of hours of great gameplay, I love long games!
- 'Another minute/10 minutes/hour(s)' syndrome :-)
- Good soundtrack and background music
Graphical side of courseread more is little worse but M&M never this technical side worked to well, anyway it's not important. What matters most in those games is immersive gameplay.
What left now it's waiting to Might & Magic 7,8,9 in catalogue :-). Enjoy!
