I am most interested in MM IX and MM X, anybody got any experience with those around here? Are they any good?

I've played a little bit of X. It seems to be a bit of a hybrid between 3-5 and the later entries. The game is grid based and combat is turn based; I honestly can't remember if you could see monsters walking around or not. Character development pulls from the 6 and up era, where characters have skill points they can put into different paths, like a weapon or a spell school. The setting is in the Ubisoft setting, so there's no sci fi aspects. From the amount I played it seemed reasonably good, but I also shelved it and decided to make my way through the rest of the series that I'm interested in first.

I don't think Might & Magic IX was particularly well-received. I think it was basically the end of the series until M&M X brought it back, and that game, as MrPopo notes, intentionally goes back to the older style in many ways. I think it's the only one in the series I don't currently own, though.

No one likes IX, no one. MM6-MM7 are where it's at.

It seems that when a classic CRPG series hits 9 it tanks. That's why I'm glad Wizardry stopped with 8.
