I was looking for a classic RPG but with modern niceties, I want deep RPG gameplay NOT 3d whizzing gfx, This game looks like its the real thing but at 10 I jumped as it looked old tech, but if the gameplay has it then I would, but has anyone tried it?

Seems like a strong tactical combat interface if the reviews can be believed.  Not seeing much about the story line.  Might be good if you want more of a straight hack & slash.

I read a review, where you have all sorts of combat options, like press forward, redeploy positions, shield weaker charectors with the stronger charectors armor, run, there was a lot more to it than I can remember, but the combat really interested me , its turn based that I loved, I don't know what the story is about either.

if you just want some basic hack-and-slash entertainment, check out Card Hunter for free

If you want a game like this, but better in every way, go to GOG and get Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven

I watched all the M&M vids on youtube, and 6 onwards looks like real time combat, and pre 6 looks very basic controls and dosnt seem as indepth as swords and sorcery promises. I know there good games but I don't thint there going to doit for me.

Six is a classic.  Combat can be either real time or turn based, your choice.  I found it impossible in real time.  Played turn based exclusively.  One tip....you'll face hordes of enemies so get bow skill and bows for all 4 party members as soon as possible, go to turn based combat and mow them down from a distance.

The title mentioned in the OP has a Demo that I'm downloading right now.  Might be fun to play this with my son sometime?

I've not played S&S, although it's been on my wishlist for a long time.


If you want an old school turn-based Tile Crawl, I'd also recommend The Quest.


It's a single character RPG (not a party) that isn't very heavy on character stats, but still has a lot of content.
