Heroes 4: plays fine on Windows 7 64-bit at a screen resolution of 1280 x 1024, and is a fresh breath of past RPG glory. Great: stories, and soundtrack. Fun gameplay with retro graphics that won't leave your eyes hurting;)
Anyway, good game for the fans of Heroes, and for those of you looking for a RPG game to play.
Some of the things that await the player are:
86 standalone missions,
38 single-scenario maps,
quests for 138 magical artifacts (including 12 powerful combination artifacts),
8 town types to build and conquer,
16 hero classes,
145 combat units, and hundreds of adventure structures, including teleporters, neutral creatures, and special terrains with unique tactics.
Further, missions can be self-contained single scenarios, linked together into multi-scenario campaigns, or played as multi-player scenarios against other human players across a network. As many as eight players can compete or team up via hot seat, LAN, modem, or the Internet. The random map generator lets you create unlimited battle scenarios. Create your own unique battles with a fully functional campaign generator and a map editor, ensuring customization for infinite replayability....again, and again...you get the picture.
In the Heroes of Might and Magic III game, you get
Heroes of Might and Magic III
Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade
Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death
So, again the question begs...why purchase separately?Read more ›
Heroes 4 was also good, but also very different. Your heroes are now an attackable creature on the battlefield, and this definitely added some strategy to engagements, as keeping your hero alive is 'generally' priority one. It's pretty cool that once you start leveling up your hero, they become a serious force to be reckoned with, often able to take out several black dragons with one blow, or entire stacks of high-level enemy troops with deadly spells.
Each of the games gets a 5/5 from me. I recommend the crap out of trying these out. SOOOOO much fun.
The disk has the staple heroes 3 and the not so popular heroes 4.. although I love them both... and all their official expansions.
The setup procedure is a bit on the hacky side, far from simple, and will probably impose some problems on windows 8 ( I only tried it on 7).
I love to sit back on the couch occasionally and veg out with my laptop on my knees and a good show on TV. Since this is a turn based game you can take your turn on the commercials or between other things and not have to pay complete attention at all times.
If you're a nostalgic old gamer like me you'll love this game.

Heros IV doesn.t run on my computer with Windows 8. It loads but then hangs up at opening. Heros III runs but often bombs during a game. Is there any cure for this? Read morePublished on March 25, 2014 by Kenneth E. Leiser
