    5.0 out of 5 stars Value for Money 16 Jun. 2006

    When ordering this, you will receive the complete collection of what is quite possibly the best Role-Playing-Game series ever. The "Heroes of Might & Magic" brand has a huge fan base worldwide, and with good reason; the intricate story line of the various campaigns and the quality of the games' graphics and gameplay make them celebrated items of passtime.

    What you get in the mail is a box containing 6 discs: one CD for each of the two first games, two for Heroes III, one DVD for Heroes IV and one for Heroes V. None of these contain the dreaded StarForce anti-piracy program, as this was removed by the producers after loud objections from the fans. Regrettably, there are no manuals to speak of. The collection gives you the games and nothing more. That being said, guides to the game have been published online. All in all, you are getting five games for the price of one.

    Heroes V is (to be frank) not that great. It's what you might call "OK". The earlier games, however, are simply fantastic - and with the vast user-made material archive available on various fansites, you get thousands of hours of playing time with this collection. And who knows - once the producers open up for the fans to make campaigns for Heroes V as well, the latest game might just pick up some speed. After all, upon release, Heroes IV wasn't considered all that great either.

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Seeming as this box set was only 5 pounds more than HOMM5 on its own, I decided to go for this pricier option - but what a good deceision that was! All the games run perfectly (despite the warnings on HOMM 1 and 2 - they shouldnt be able to be palyed on XP, but they work fine). The only problem I have with the set it that there are no manuals for any of the games except HOMM5, but that is a very minor problem.

    Still, I have to say I am very happy with this set, and I can see myself playing thorugh all 5 games very soon!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive collectible set 13 Jan. 2009
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This is quite simply the most amazing boxed set of computer games Ive ever had the pleasure to own.
    As limited or collectors editions go, this one is head and shoulders above anything Ive ever seen before.
    It reminds me of how PC games used to be in the good old days. Games publishers would often throw in extra goodies such as maps, books etc...nothing like the lean, minimalist plastic packaging PC games come in these day...usually with 'on-disc' manuals!

    The overall finish and professional production of all the extras included in this set, just give you that feeling that Ubisoft went that extra mile when producing this limited edition.
    For example, the hardback book included is big (a4 size) and its not a slim volume either.

    And lets not forget the 'meat & veg' of this set...the games. Every single Heroes of Might and magic game released from 1995 up to the present version, Heroes V including the rare 'Heroes Chronicles' AND all the official expansion packs. Just wow!

    Yes it does cost a bit extra but it's well worth it as there is enough gaming included in this set to keep you going for about 1-2 years!
    Put simply, its a release no serious HoM&M fan or strategy gamer should be without.
