Might and Magic Gets a Makeover

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes HD

Might and Magic is a pretty old franchise in video game terms, and it only makes sense that current franchise owner Ubisoft would want to inject some new life into it. That new life comes in the form of Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD, the high-def remake of last year’s critically-acclaimed Nintendo DS title from Capybara Games. The first thing veteran MM players will notice (besides the unique puzzle/strategy gameplay, of course) is the distinctive Saturday morning cartoon art style, with hand-drawn environments and characters. It even ties into the Heroes of Might and Magic storyline, yet still remains accessible to players new to the franchise. If the sound of a different studio getting their hands on your treasured IP makes you nervous, well, just keep two things in mind: first, Clash of Heroes is a legitimately good game, a charming and engrossing single- and multi-player experience. Second, the Clone Wars cartoon was several leagues better than the actual Star Wars prequel trilogy. Clash of Heroes is available now on PSN and Xbox Live for $14.99.
