Set in the game world of Erathia (last seen in Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia), New World Computing's role playing adventure Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor features a wide range of character classes and races, skills, magic items, monsters, evil denizens and spells (many new to the series). The game, sporting a new look from the previous title, is powered by 3D acceleration that provides improved dynamic lighting and enhanced special effects.
In this follow-up title to Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven, you'll control a party of four potentially heroic adventurers, completely customizable during pre-game character creation. Although beginning the adventure with low-level skills, attributes, weapons, abilities and limited knowledge, each character will improve in all aspects as experience is earned.
At the core of the story lies a power struggle between the Guildmaster of Necromancers Archibald Ironfist, who claims to be the rightful king of Enroth, and his brother Roland and sister-in-law Catherine, currently in power in Erathia.
The interface is basic point-and-click with many supporting keyboard shortcuts and controls. Game play is similar in style to the game's predecessor and features a series of game screens dedicated to actions such as adventuring, character administration, inventory management and book entries pertaining to character quests, maps, calendars, history and general notes. Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor features improved frame rates and encompasses a vast gaming world ripe with exploration, combat and magic spells. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
