I had ordered this book for hints and tips on Might & Magic 2, because, as the title says, it's the "Authorized Strategy Guide to Games I-V". But when I got the book, I soon found out that they put games 1 and 2 into a small TWO PAGE summary. There were no hints, no clues, no solutions, and there was NO HELP for either 1 or 2. So this book was USELESS!

It's really tragic that people want to make money with something like this - and even more tragic that other might actually shell out money for it.

good overall, but does NOT cover 1 nor 2 as stated 18 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
for games 3 to 5 very extensive and well detailed, with very few errors, however I felt prima cheated me as i needed the book for M&M2 and there is nothing in the book about 1 or 2 as if i remember correctly the book states they are so old no one has them any more (I have them on my C-128)

Not as Helpful as I Hoped 28 Oct. 2011
By Eric J. Carver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have used any of the Strategy Guides for Might and Magic 6 through 9, you know how complete they are with information about quests, items, monsters, and game play - enough in fact, so that even a beginner can finish the game with a minimum of frustration. Unfortunately such is NOT true of this Guide. It does have maps which are fairly good, and information about spells and monsters which is sometimes helpful, but almost nothing about game-play or Quests or how to navigate the frustrating areas.
If you are as foolish as I was, and decide to buy the Older M&M 1-5, this is better than nothing. But I really recommend that you invest your money elsewhere. The games DO NOT work on modern computers, and even on our old one that runs Windows 98 (that we keep in the spare room) only #3 loaded.
All in all - the Games and the Guide were a BIG disappointment.
Nice but does NOT cover all five games :( 7 April 2013
By Michael E. Lyons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a nice guide for III through V but it does not cover the first two games unfortunately which was disappointing to find. Not the seller's fault. I just want to point out that the book itself is a little lacking. There does not seem to be an available guide for the first two games I am aware of. I guess I'll need to bust out the graph paper and pencil. Yikes! Maybe I should just go play something simple and mindless like oh, Call of Duty? Ha! Ha!

Anyway, still a worthwhile purchase in my opinion for anyone working their way through this classic RPG series. Just be aware you'll need to consult the world wild web for help with the first two.
Where's MM I & II? 3 Sept. 2012
By Julien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book clearly states it's from MM I to V...
For the 3, 4, and 5, they cover every map, every monster, etc.
For the 1 and 2, there's a single paragraph telling the backstory of the MM world.

I bought it just for the latter two, so I was just deceived, frustrated and angry.
