Great classic games at an affordable price.

Anyone who has yet to try a turn based strategy game could do worse than try out Heroes of Might and Magic III and IV. Previous knowledge of the series isn't required and in fact, most fans think that the third instalment of the series is the flagship product.
Installation on Windows 7 isn't a problem. I think another reviewer has mentioned some issues with Heroes IV and I would suggest running the program in compatibility mode if necessary (right click the shortcut or exe and adjust accordingly to XP).
Gameplay centres around a turn based structure. You will belong to a certain faction and be able to build something each turn which will allow you access to purchase creatures for example. These can then be used to form an army which will be led around the map by a hero, collecting resources and fighting enemies, with the general aim to capture the opponents castles (their base or HQ) and vanquish enemy heroes.
For the price this is a great product. The only annoying thing is that you need the DVD to actually launch the game. This can be inconvenient and you can circumvent this by looking for a "no cd patch".
A great buy overall.
