I enjoyed this review a lot. It reminded me of all the faults of my original Apple Might&Magic, while the PC-Engine's seem to be completely different! Especially, they ripped up the original wobbly story to make...a new wobbly one.

As for other versions, the NES version does seem best, as it avoids bad poetry and, worse, piles of impossible monsters and perpetual level grinding. Plus, the pre-set group of players you choose from has appreciably different alignments.

I'm still curious about the game and would love to somehow play it some day, especially since scanning your FAQ has given me idea of what to do, where--I heard MM3 got ported to the TGCD too, but if they were able to fit that in satisfactorily, I'm a bit surprised they didn't go with Might and Magic II, which was superior to the original. Might've meant fewer laughs in the review, though.
