4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Game is added to the Series May 30, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I started playing the Heroes franchise with Heroes of Might and Magic III. I am glad this new developer took many of the best features from III and made it new again. This game is immediately playable. I have already spent hours playing through the Haven campaign, exploring the entire map in each level. The graphics are fantastic, which makes playing the game enjoyable. The control mechanics are simple and straightforward. Because I was familiar with III and IV, I had no trouble jumping right into this game and feeling like I knew how to do everything, including building construction, troop recruitment, and combat. The combat in this game has improved--the difference in unit types and how they act adds to the overall strategy on the combat field. With the addition of many new spells and abilities, each Hero feels different in combat. Since combat is a major part of the game, I was glad to know the developer made the combat fun and straightforward as well, meaning you may spend countless hours in combat over the course of the game, yet each battle is not repetitive. There is always something going on to make it different.

However, the game does have some problems. A reviewer here on Amazon wrote a great deal about the game--turns out, he is correct. There are many strange things about the game--things I can't believe a developer would overlook. For example, in combat, you do know the result of your unit's attack before the animation even plays. If you look at the bottom of the screen or watch the initiative bar, you know the results before anything happens. This is an annoying oversight--I try not to look at those bars while I play. Also, the battlefield is completely scaleable in 3D as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A joke of a game, with huge potential. May 25, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
September 29 2006.
The second, and last, edit to this review.

Well, the map editor is finally out, and I must say that they did a excellent job with it. Sure, it needs a little trail and error to lean how to use it. But it is pretty much 90% the same editor like in H3. If you know how to use that, you know how to use this one.

Now, as for the rest of the game, have 3 patches changed it? Yes it definitely did. It still isn't perfect, there still are bugs in the game, but they are (relatively) small, and the kind you will find in any game nowadays.

Now this game is worth buying, and I would suggest that you do.

A few more things. In my initial review I said that the game was very stable; it is... for me. I never had a single crash, never had a problem with the game freezing; nothing like that. But I have read in the official Ubi forum that not all people are that lucky. Most interesting, the more... exotic... you computer is, the more change there seems to be for a problem. So it might very well be that someone with a beast of a computer all geared to playing games has a problem with it, while the other person that has a more common computer that only just makes the system requirements has no problem with the game at all.

If you do buy the game, my advice is to immediately download the patches and install them before even playing the game. This also because some save games didn't work anymore after a new patch was installed. Very importantly, DL the right patch. If you have the U.S. version of the game, you also need the U.S. patch. There is even a difference between normal and collectors edition. In total there are something like 7 patches for every version of the patch, so make sure you got the right one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heroes is Back! June 2, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a fan of the series since King's Bounty, way to many years ago, I was really excited to hear that UBI was bringing the series back to life.

You'll notice right off the bat a few changes. Having played every game in the series, my favorite was Heroes III and I absolutley hated IV. So if you had similar feelings, you'll be pleased to know that this game to me feels almost identical to Heroes III.

With that said, there are a lot of changes some good and some bad. Combat in this game is a lot of fun and feels better than even Heroes III. It appears that a lot of thought has gone into the balancing of the various units and even some nice changes given to make all of them worth using. Even Heroes III had units that were worthless.

Combat has several features that are nice as well, as you hoover over targets the screen displays where that unit can potentially move as well as your range for units killed. This might be None to a range of numbers like 2-15. Catapults, Healing Tents etc all take care of them selves and the nicest feature added might be the initiative bar. It's really nice seeing the units next few rounds and as morale bonuses change the order.

While there is a lot of positives, there are a few negatives. I personally don't think every game on the planet needs to be 3D. Combat is really nice due to the 3D graphics, but the main map suffers in a few areas. First, it's really hard to tell what's eye candy and what you should be running around picking up. Second and most annoying is the option to invert mouse is limited to 1 checkbox that inverts both the horizontal and vertical camera movement. I'd really like to have these as seperate options as I want to invert 1 but not both for my style of play.
