Warriors of Might and Magic is an action role-playing game developed and released by The 3DO Company for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and Game Boy Color in 2000. The three versions, although they all follow a similar storyline, are each unique, especially the GBA version which is presented in 2D instead of 3D and has an almost completely different story.

Reception[edit]

Warriors of Might and Magic for the PlayStation 2 holds a generally unfavorable averaged review score of 49% on Metacritic.[1] Joe Fielder from GameSpot awarded it a score of 3.6 out of 10, opining "there's a decent game hidden here somewhere; it just exists under many layers of detritus."[2] IGN's Doug Perry awarded it a score of 5.0 out of 10, saying that it "hits the mark on a few cylinders, but its clumsy, redundant nature will put you to sleep, and for a videogame, which is by definition supposed to be 'entertaining', that's not a good sign."[3] The PlayStation version was better received, earning a GameRankings score of 61.33%.[4]

Sequels[edit]

The game (in its versions for the PS and PS2) was followed by a direct sequel titled Shifters, released for the PlayStation 2 in 2002.
