The end of a dynasty with a great potential
Might and Magic 9 is a 2002 fantasy real-time strategy game
, that puts an end to the strong and memorable series
. The story presents the world of Axeoth in danger, being threatened by an invasion of the Beldonian Horde. The action takes place in a whole new world, that follows the wreckage of the planet Enroth, which represented the setting for the three previous games. Unlike its predecessors, Might and Magic 9 uses a 3D engine, and unlike its direct prequel
, the player can choose from four races: human, elf, dwarf, and half-orc. The classes are named Fighter or Initiate. This 2002 RPG rises according to the expectations from man y points of view, with a few exceptions,of course. I have never imagined how captivated I will be by engaging in the universe of Might and Magic, and my wait for the next games was always worth it. I can also tell the same about this final game. Giving the fact that the series haven't succeeded with the graphical aspect (there were a lot of imaging and perspective bugs, errors and distortions), the developers did a great job with this one. Everything in Might and Magic 9 is captivating and appealing: the universe, the action, the story, the gameplay! Go ahead and discover them!
