Master of Magic
Master of Magic downloads
Early versions of Master of Magic were riddled with bugs and had a terrible artificial intelligence, frustrating a lot of reviewers with its crashes and ignorant enemies. A few patches later, version 1.2 corrected a lot of the bugs and added some tweaks but there were still game crashing moments.
Master of Magic was inducted into GameSpy's Hall of Fame in 2000, citing it as a visually stunning game with enduring replayability due to its randomness and large variety of spells.
Master of Magic still has yet to produce a sequel or remake. Steve Barcia had stated in 1997 that Master of Magic II would be ready by spring 1998 with new features, spells, monsters, and even a spell designer. However, Simtex was closed down in the same year. Microprose revealed it was developing a sequel on its own, but had to cancel the plans when the company's financial situation deteriorated in 2000.
