Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes Reviews

Despite being a total departure from the series many of us have fond memories of, the reviews for Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes are quite favorable.

Common Sense Media gives it a perfect 5/5:
Clash of Heroes has a wonderfully simple and accessible design. The basics take mere minutes to learn, but the tactics grow deeper as the game progresses, thanks to a variety of ways in which to link attacks, defend from enemy advances, and a steady stream of new unit types with varying abilities, such as being able to leap over enemy walls or cause damage to your foe's supply of magical energy. Plus, the pacing is spot-on for Nintendo's portable platform. The role-playing elements are quick and free of clutter while most of the battles tend to last just long enough to play during a bus ride or in bed before falling asleep. One of the best strategy games of the year, it's a surefire bet for strategy lovers, fantasy fans, and puzzle game players.

Cheat Code Central gives it a 4.4/5:
Clash of Heroes is inviting at first, but the challenge eventually ramps up to a seemingly brutal level of difficulty that will draw a line in the sand between casual players and diehard strategy fans. If you're of the latter group, then this latest entry into the Might and Magic lore is an absolute must-buy.

And The Globe and Mail gives it a 3.5/4:
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is one of the best handheld strategy games I've played in years. Pity it might drown in the tidal wave of holiday releases currently crowding store shelves.
