5.0 out of 5 stars Top calibre turn-based strategy February 2, 2000
When I first played Heros of Might and Magic (the very first one), I was unimpressed. I had played Warlords, one of its contemporaries, and Heroes I lacked the depth of its competitor.
Fast forward to Heroes of Might and Magic III. What a phenomenal improvement over its predecessors! The art is breathtaking. The music is worth listening to even while you're not playing. The number of units available is staggering. The gameplay is balanced and addictive. In no other game do I succumb to the "just one one turn" syndrome so easily. In addition, the relaxed pace of a turn-based strategy game is welcome, especially after all the real-time strategy games that cover the aisles, walls, and floors of software stores.
And if the maps and campaigns that ship with the game aren't enough to satisfy you, New World Computing has included their map editor to allow you to make your own maps. There are several sites on the net dedicated to archiving other people's creations.
I've been a fan of Might and Magic for 10 years now and this game is easily worthy of acting as the franchise's flagship strategy offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take up the gauntlet and win! January 19, 2000
I watched a friend of mine play the demo version of this game and within an hour I was totally hooked. After completing the demo for myself I rushed out and bought the full version. Until I played HMM3 I used to ridicule turn based combat, I thought that it was totally unrealistic and that it slowed down the flow of events. Well this game changed all that for me, battle becomes an intellectual challenge, a sort of graphically superior Battle Chess. The fights often end up being better than the disorganised melee that Warcraft II battles can degenerate into. Many was the time I started a fight with an enemy only to be shocked by size of the forces aligned against me. To be able to claw your way back from almost certain defeat to a glorious victory is a major buzz!
There's a lot of pleasure to be had from selecting a hero and slowly building up their experience, knowledge and magical powers. Likewise you become almost sad when you have to sacrifice some of these heroes to save the others.
The cut scenes are truly cinematic in quality and set the scene really well. The main map graphics are clear pleasant but nothing outstanding, about the same quality and viewing angle as Warcraft II and no 3D graphics card is required. During the battle scenes the character graphics and animation is excellent, see your foes reel in agony and collapse!
HMM3 sound is the best I have ever heard from any game with superb spot effects, beautiful orchestrated music that occasionally stirs the blood and draws you deeper into the game. You'll probably need a decent sound card to appreciate it fully.
The only minor irritation I could find was the slight feeling of being hemmed in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes III: the greatest PC game in history (?) April 11, 2000
I've been pretty much addicted to this game since it came out the better part of a year ago. Some gaming sites and mags (e.g., PC GAMER) gave this game very good--but not superior--reviews. But unlike these reviewers, I don't buy the view that just because Heroes III is in principle very much like Heroes II it is not a superior game. This may be fallacious reasoning, but I know Heroes III is a great, great game because I do not get addicted to anything less than great, great games (i.e., StarCraft, WarCraft II, Alpha Centauri, Duke Nukem 3D, and a few others). I could go on and on about how fun this game is to play, how enjoyable the different spells and monsters are. And with the add-on (well, there are two of them now), Heroes III has infinite replayability. From the p.o.v. of a strategy gamer, this is one of the top ten best games of all time. (My big stack of Ancient Behemoths will kick the butts of a million of your wimpy Quake monsters!) Seriously, any fan of strategy games should check this one out, pronto, esp. since the price has dropped so low.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift From The Angels... And Devils, And Dragons May 11, 2002
By Andrew
Heroes of Might and Magic III is the best Heroes game yet! #1 was okay, but it lacked upgrades, and #2 was great, but this leaves it way behind. With eight castle types, each with fourteen different creatures (seven normal and seven upgraded), sixteen types of heroes (two from each town), and three sides (good, evil, neutral), you'll have hours of strategic fun. The battle engine remains the same, where you and the army you form attacks other armies, towns, or just wandering monsters, in a turn-based fight. Now, though, certain soldiers have special powers over others. For example, Angels and Devils have hatred toward each other, so when one attacks the other, they inflict almost triple damage! Other hatreds include Giants/Titans and Red/Black Dragons, and Genies/Master Genies and Efreeti/Efreeti Sultans. The way you form armies is you build your towns, and you recruit creatures from their dwellings (Note: not all creatures are generated from towns, some you must find elsewhere). You build your town by finding resources and gold, then buying structures. You can recruit many different kinds of soldiers for your army, including Dragons, Giants, Griffins, Minotaurs, Vampires, Cyclopes, and Hydras! Some of the ways to play are 1) doing a normal stand-alone mission where you are given objectives, 2) doing a campaign, where you do many missions that tell a story, 3) creating your own mission in the map generator (a very cool touch), or 4) playing either 1 or 3 in multiplayer mode. The depth, graphics, and fun of this game are endless.
