Might and Magic: MM3 versus MM4 versus MM5 ?

Postby patrick295767 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 6:12 pm

Hello,

On Raspberry I am playing on Dosbox the famous MM games.

Which one do you prefer MM3 versus MM4 versus MM5 ? You can comment and give your opinion about each game.

I played mostly "Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra", some 23 years ago, and liked it very much. I haven't tried the others, they are probably as good as MM3.

I like MM2 very much, especial graphics wise, but still MM3 is better.

MM4 and MM5 I never tried. My brothers said that they are terrible. (I did try MM4 and yes, it was terrible)

In which sense that MM4 wasn't as good as MM3.

I noticed that graphics are constantly nicer from MM3 to MM4 to MM5.
Monsters are still all nice: http://shrines.rpgclassics.com/pc/mm4_5 ... rs_4.shtml

problem with MM4 is that there is to much space on map - you are not confined so there is much less strategy in movement on map.
