    Anybody got the game? Comments? I am thinking of getting it, but I want to know if it is worth the money.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jason

    Take home message: convince me to buy this game!

    The publisher made the mistake of launching at the same time as Dungeon Seige & Jedi Knight 2, Jason, so I think it's been completely overshadowed & forgotten about.

    My thoughts exactly. It wasn't exactly a high-profile game to begin with anyway. But I was hoping somebody had at least played it to see if it was a total bomb.

    Did they use the _same_ f*cking engine AGAIN? I am a big fan, but really hate 3DO after running the series into the ground. They put basically the same graphical engine in 6-8 and it was crappy looking when they released 6 (I remember reading some BS about that they didn't need to use hardware acceleration etc.)

    Someone let me know - I'd love to play it if they didn't ruin M&M again...

    While I did not buy it - picked up Freedom Force and Dungeon Siege which, per the wife, exceeded my game limit [​IMG] - I can tell you that they did change the engine this time around. They have gone to the LithTech engine, enabling them to go to a 3d world and graphics. I am curious to hear how the game is though. This is a sentimental favorite of sorts.

    not surprised by that review. i hate to say it, but M & m is past its prime. I'd love to give them $50 for a great game, but alas, it ain't MMIX. I think I'll save my money and just get ready for Warcraft III.
