5.0 out of 5 stars The best gaming value there is April 28, 2003
Edition:Platinum
I can't think of a better gaming value than this product. I still remember the day I installed the demo of Heroes of Might and Magic I. I finished it, and immediately RAN into my car, drove to the store and bought a copy. Since then, I've played Heroes of Might and Magic II, and I am in the process of playing Heroes of Might and Magic III (about 50% through). Just HOMM3 alone has the main game and 2 extensions, each part containing about 6 campaigns, and each campaign consisting of about 5 maps. It takes me about 2-4 hours to complete a map, so that's 3 times 6 times 5 times 3 = 270 hours of gaming! Add in HOMM1 & HOMM2, and I would conservatively estimate 500 hours of gaming in this package just playing the campaigns. If you add in the non-campaign maps, the map editors that let you make your own maps, and the possibility of multiplayer play, we're talking thousands of hours of gameplay here.
The premise of Heroes of Might and Magic (HOMM for short) is very simple: It is a turn based game that takes place on a fantasy map filled with castles, mines (gold, coal, wood, etc.), monsters and treasure. You generally start out with a single weak hero and a castle of your own. You alternate turns against one of more computer players (usually) or against other humans, and you move your hero(es) around capturing the resources and defeating enemy armies and unallied groups of creatures. You use these resources to improve your castles where you can also purchase a army of creatures for your heroes to lead. When your hero meets a group of monsters or an enemy on the map, you have a battle, and the hero who loses their army loses the battle (surrendering is also an option). The monsters include archers, dragons, vampires, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near Pefect Games! February 1, 2003
Edition:Platinum
These three games are one of the best strategy games around. It has elements of an RPG and strategy game mix together. The battles are fought much like a chess game with magic and fantasy type troops that you try to create each week. I've had Heroes 2 for years and it had stood the test of time and become very replayable. Heroes 3 was an even better game but different enough for me to enjoy both games. After losing Heroes 3 by accident I was ecstatic when I heard I could get all three games with one purchase. It's a bonus when I also get all the expansion games to Heroes 2 and Heroes 3 along with the purchase as well! =)
Heroes of Might and Magic - I've never played Heroes 1 before but I found it enjoyable and nice to see what the first game in the series was like. There are not many features compared to later versions but it's still fun nevertheless. The map editor is included and fun to use, and the editor is improved with every later Heroes version.
GRADE: B
Heroes of Might and Magic 2 - This is the game I have been playing for years. The monsters are better, the magic system is improved, and the maps more fun when compared to Heroes 1. This was the first appearance of the upgrade system for the creatures and this will always the best when only a few of your troops could be upgraded. The two "super" creatures, the Black Dragon and Titan are both a force of nature in the battle field and are both what I strive to get in my armies if I can create them. The campaign, the main story of the game is very well done and a few were an absolute joy to play, (In one called "Rebellion", you must raise an undead army by destroying nearly everything.) There are two campaigns where you can play either for good or evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible bargain December 18, 2002
By Ammatai
Edition:Platinum
This series is GREAT. 6 great games, Heroes III and it's expansions still quite new for this price is really wonderful.
People that generally don't play video games I have seen get addicted to this.
Heroes 1 is somewhat dated and simplistic but a good choice for young players or people new to turn based strategy games. Heroes II is great. Heroes III I think is better.
Use Google or some other search engine to search for Heroes of Might and Magic II review and Heroes of Might and Magic III review. You'll see very favorable reviews.
You might need to run in under compatibility mode in XP but thats as easy as right clicking on the shortcut to the game and choosing compatibility mode windows 98.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOVE the Might and Magic games January 13, 2015
Edition:Platinum|Verified Purchase
LOVE the Might and Magic games, BUT... Does not Load on my brand new computer. :( I would also like to request the company make these games in other formats such as Wii and XBox!!! I have not found any other games I like so much in those formats. Also, would like to request they stop limiting the creatures. Three expanded pack was the best HM&M with several different dragons, unicorns, Pegasus and other beasts that made the game! Do NOT like the newer creatures and the ones that were kept are all the worst ones... Boring! So stick to what people buy it for... Medieval knights creatures and others from mythology! Thanks!
