4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Foward.. then a Step Backwards April 9, 2002
Platform for Display:PC
Heroes 4 Does have many wonderful improvements that makes it more complex and in sum, more compelling than S3, but there are these little problems in the game that Heroes 3 didn't have. I don't understand why 3do chose to take away certain elements of Heroes 3 that were already perfect.
Steps Foward:
*I have to give it to the creators to add the "Heroes in Combat" function. This makes the combination of your armies a lot more complex. 3 Heroes with 3 monsters.. or An army of 6 heroes in all.. You choose!! And Each Hero can be specialized in his her own way..
*Skills- Each hero can have 5 major skills and 15 minor skills.. That's a whopping 20 total skills. That makes the heroes unique enough, huh?
*New Monsters!! - Need I say more?
*New Spells!! -Need I say more?
*Potions give a nice little addition to the game. Allows for more dynamics during battle.
*Monsters are a bit more complex in Heroes 4. Many of them have more skills.. and more specialties... Mages can cast different spells.. and there are choices to what type of monsters your town produces.
*Monsters are generated in each town per turn instead of per week.. makes more sense this way.
Steps Backwards:
* Like some other posters.. I don't understand why they don't tell you how much experience you get after each better.. makes it hard to keep track of the levels of your heroes.
*Heroes no longer have their own little specialization. So for example, it doesn't matter whether you start out with a priest named bob or a priest named Rob.. there's no difference. Remember, in Heroes 3, every hero had a special skill?
* Um.. graphics seem to be worse in some cases.. better in others.. yes.. 3d graphics.. but still worse in some cases (combat).
*Combat is worse. We need the squares!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost got it right, but not quite April 5, 2002
Platform for Display:PC
HOMM IV almost got there. Almost. And in not getting there, it very nearly falls completely flat. The Heroes franchise has built up quite a following, and rightfully so, it's a good series of games. However, with each new edition, up go our expectations. Heroes of Might and Magic IV is what HOMM III should have been. Let's start with what I liked:
- Character development. Excellent job. It's fun, and the heroes don't all become identical by the end-game. Plus I really enjoy actually using them in combat. I cannot believe they didn't incorporate this in HOMM III.
- I like the fog of war. Cool addition, though it's a mistake to make it mandatory (you can't turn it off if you don't like it) as some won't like it.
- The music ain't bad, I kinda like the operatic stuff.
- Nice new spells, and schools of magic. Well done, forcing each race to use it's strengths independently; you can't use the same strategies across races.
- Quick combat (calculations, doesn't even go to the combat screen) is rather nice
Now on to the litany, some minor, some less so, of complaints. I respect that some would say I'm nit-picking, however, they really seemed to drop the ball on a lot of these:
- no multiplayer! It took me forever to find the Hotseat function which is hidden under SINGLE PLAYER!!! Was this interface designed by children? This angered me so much I nearly took it back. There are repeated interface issues: clumsy, poorly designed, that still irk me, long after I've gotten used to their idiosyncrasies.
- Does not show you your experience after a battle, and there is no exp bar that "fills up" as you close in on your next level. You need to right click.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great addition to the Heroes series April 3, 2002
Platform for Display:PC
I've been hooked on HOMM since the very first one (go back and play that and you'll realize how far the series has come). HOMM 4 had a totally different feel from the third installment. Some of these new aspects are good while others make you wish they'd kept things the same as before. Having your heroes fight in combat is really cool, and even if they die you can get them back in various ways. Also, the new skills and class system adds a ton of depth to the game as you now get to chose what your hero becomes. Most of the new creatures are pretty cool (although since when is the ballista considered a "creature"). The game does seem to play a little slower than HOMM3 although you can vary the speed at which you and opposing heroes move both on the world map and in combat. I also love the addition of a caravan. No more having to have one hero be the transporter of troops back and forth. Also, the creatures in the towns grow at a more realistic rate, meaning new ones appear each day. Growth is still based on weekly totals though so if you buy all the creatures for that week no more will appear till the next week.
Lots of good stuff but there are some bad aspects. The graphics, while 3D and more realistic, seem to have lost something. I can't exactly say what but I prefered the more fantasy looking creatures of HOMM 3. The new magic and class system can be confusing at first even to veterans of HOMM. Castle seiges have also been taken down a notch in HOMM4. There are no arrow towers, catapults, etc in seige battles. There are still walls, the drawbridge, and a moat and the defenders' ranged troops occupy perches inside the castle to give them an advantage but to me seige battles have lost something in this edition.
