Retro Review, Warriors of might and Magic
Written by: chenzen - 23:08 Jan-01-2018

Warriors of might and magic was released on the PS1, PS2 and GameBoy Color on December 22, 2000 it follows the disgraced former Captain of the Guard Alleron wrongfully convicted of a crime and sentenced to exile from his home. The copy I played was on the PS1 and was initially very excited to play this game I've always loved the Might and magic series and I didn't know what to expect from a singe player title in the franchise.

The graphics are pretty standard for a PS1 title, there was a bit of slowdown when in certain areas with more than 4 monsters in that area. The environments didn't really vary you mostly stayed underground or at least that's what I think, it was kind of hard to tell where to go next during certain levels because everything looked the same and I got lost a few times but did manage to find my way back on course. 

As I stated earlier this was a single player title with you controlling alleron through various levels in the game, the controls are actually really good and never felt to stiff or loose when hacking and slashing, it plays a lot like an action game with light RPG elements levels are gained at certain points and your max level is 15 which I gained right before the final boss, spells include fireball, frost nova, shield and healing and also level up four times each respectively. you only gain one suit of armor which is around the halfway point of the game and you pick up various upgraded weapons throughout the levels. It was never too challenging but never held your hand either, I never felt frustrated through the game and I only saw the game over screen 3 times. during each level you collect keys to unlock chests which contain health and mana refills and gems and orbs for opening doors and unlocking gates to progress and at the end of each level you'll see how much you completed of the level whether you missed any secret areas or maybe you missed an upgrade. 

During your quest for redemption you get to meet a couple of noteworthy characters including a mage and his way to attractive apprentice, and during the cutscenes each character is voice acted but I recommend skipping those as the overall quality is pretty crappy and you wont miss out on much of the story. My only grief with the game was is that it is EXTREMELY short, my total playtime was around 3 hours and 34 minutes, once you really get the hang of things your done. It did receive a sequel in 2002 and scored low by critics however I did order it and once it arrives I'll give it a shot because every story no matter how crappy it is deserves and ending.

 

So should you play this game? if your really that interested in the other stories from the Might anf Magic universe than I would certainly give it a try. It can be bought for relatively cheap on eBay, my copy came from a bundle of other PS1 games. And I can see myself playing through it again as sometimes really long games tend to wear me out and I just wanna smash things from time to time. So thank you for checking out my First Review blog of 2018! Here's to a better year!
