Excellent in every way!,
This review is from: Heroes of Might & Magic III (PC CD) (Video Game)
This has to be my all-time favourite game on any platform. It offers the lot in the turn-based, role-playing action game. This is purely a class game, and I have absolutely no gripes about it! Also, for £1.50 (above ^^^) you can't go far wrong can you?
I've got no doubt in giving it 5 stars as it is one of the best games ever made of its genre and its time.
WARNING: once you start playing this game you will lose hours, days, and weeks of your life to the brilliance of this concept!! So if you work on the stock market then maybe this one isn't for you!
I've tried many games since such as the age of empires, empire earth, and rise of nations franchises, but none of them have captured me and kept me enthralled as much as Heroes III, even with its relatively dated graphics and limited soundtrack.
Beware, however if you want to purchase the other games in the series: the prequels are similar but have less depth and worse game-play, and unfortunately the sequels - Heroes IV, V, etc. offer less than Heroes III, a huge disappointment for someone such as myself hoping for improvements in the series. If you want more of the same as Heroes III, buy the expansion packs, I think there are 5, and they have the same graphics engine but there are more scenarios and generally more things to do.
But you must buy THIS game! If you don't, you may well regret it for the rest of your life!!!
