Might & Magic: Duel of Champions is a collectible card game for your iPad that is set in the universe of Might & Magic, and while it has quite a few fun features, it suffers in many ways from a poor interface and slow performance. We had multiple issues in testing, from slow load times to unresponsive controls; and while the game was, at times, fun, it also felt a bit dated.
When you load Might & Magic: Duel of Champions for the first time, you'll need to register for Ubisoft's Uplay account so you can play online. It doesn't use Game Center, so you'll need a third-party account. Combined with the slow and oftentimes unresponsive interface in the early going, it will take some time before you can start playing the game. Menus are often overloaded with options, with no clear direction or tutorial for what you should be doing, and the pay-to-play mechanics, while optional, are never fully explained. There is a tutorial for the card game, itself, but it's optional so you'll want to find it before starting a game. Gameplay runs fairly smoothly and the cards have a lot of flavor to them and some fantastic artwork, but the game's slow responses can make enjoying them tough.
Might & Magic: Duel of Champions requires some patience to deal with the frequent timeouts, sluggish menus, and unclear instructions. The game, itself, is fun and there are a good number of people online playing, at least at the time this was tested. The game is also free so there is no obligation to pay to play out of the gate, but the app needs some work to smooth out the performance issues.
