Don't buy this. There's more accurate information online about HOMM5. This is the poorest Game Guide I've ever bought.

With a complex game like Heroes you want some good fold out tables and charts of the different troop-types and heroes. You dont get that. The entire book is in black and white. Most of the guide is simply a walkthrough of the Campaign missions. Bleh. That would have been fine to include that but fans of this game want tables and charts in a readable format. Very unfortunate how bad this "guide" is. I regret buying it.

Overall the book is useful, but like most of Prima's game guides it is a mass of errors and typos. They really ought to consider hiring an editor.

I have been playing Heroes V recently, though I am not an authority on the game. I think this guide is about as useful as the one for Heroes IV. The guide is handy to keep by my side and check stats for creatues, town building, spells, and abilities.

It sorely needs an index. I had to scotch-tape some paper tabs on the edges of pages for quick reference. Also I have needed to jot in some corrections made necessary by game patches. For instance, the guide says that to build a level-five Magic Guild you need $1,000, 5 wood, 5 ore, 10 mercury, 10 crystal, 10 sulfur, and 10 gems. But while playing a scenario in the Haven campaign, I discovered that I needed $1,000, 5 wood, 5 ore, 5 mercury, 5 crystal, 5 sulfur, and 5 gem.

Some of the campaign scenarios in the guide are titled differently than they are in the game.

I have yet to play more than two stand-alone scenarios and five Haven-campaign scenarios, so I suspect I will discover more discrepancies as I play more of the game.

In Heroes Community, you can find a user-created manual that is much much more colorful and attractive than this black-and-white illustrated guide. The manual is free and it has updated information for patches. Still, for many purposes this guide is more handy, unless you want to go through the labor and costs of paper and color ink for printing out the 338-page manual. Even so, I have found a thing or two in the guide that is not in the attractive manual. Overall, the user-created manual is much better, but if you play a lot of Heroes V and if you can get this guide cheaply, I say go ahead and get it.
