When it comes out, I bought the original CD. 2006 I was a kid and I just played it for fun.
4 years later I played it and from that it was my favorite game ever! I finish all the campaigns!
8 years later I bought it for steam and will play it again just because this game deserves it!

9/10 for Graphics (for a game that comes out in 2006 is badass)
8/10 for Gameplay (turn based game in this game is fine)
10/10 for Story (best fantasy story game)

If you want to start to play Might and Magic, I recommend to start with V!

A simple but enthralling blend of role-playing and strategy in a fashion more accepting of competition than the standard RPG. An experience worth having over and over again.

It's a really great game, It's a shame that the whole Might & Magic and Heroes of Might & Magic franchise isn't on steam.
I'd love so much to play the first Might & Magic game or Heroes of Might & Magic 3 on steam.

At least, they're available on Gog.com

Anyway, It's a really great game and I'd suggest it to any fans of Might & Magic, Heroes of Might & Magic and Strategy games!

9/10

This is a fun and interesting game to play with friends and you can even play online or in hotseat.Unfortunately there is an even better version with more units.races,spells,events and maps called "heroes of might and magic five:tribes of the east".So I actually recommend getting that instead of this,still if you want to complete your set or just want to see the campaign of this game(which is really fun)go ahead and buy it.The gameplay and graphics are great.

Oldschool game. If you haven't played it when you were 8-13 years old, you will think this one is not worth the money. I love it because I have played this game soooo long ago and it brings me good memories and nostalgic feeling about it. All enviromoment reminds me of GOT or LOTR (In my perspective). V one is awesome because battles is a lot more improved than before in IV or III one. Also all of your army charackters has three levels not two (if you have bought gold edition) which is really cool. I would give it a strong 7/10.

Heros of Might & Magic V is a classic game of epic strategy. This game combines turn-based, army-oriented combat with RPG-like logistics to grow the various forces. Instead of clicking on a building to query up troops, you must either send out your general out to rally them, or recruit them from you town. It's a refresting, and unique take, on the stregy genre of games.

The graphics of this game havn't aged very well, as with most games published around the same time as this one. Also, it's art style is pretty much a rip-off of the Warhammer Fantasy tabletop game. But that is basically what this game is: "Warhammer: the Campign". And thats not a bad thing.

If the idea of a semi-casual, low-APM, army campign game sounds even mildly interesting, then you'll love this game. Just, try not to look the in-game characters in they eyes during dialoge. The uncanny valley is strong here, after all.

Friend of mine had this game and it was plain fun to get through this game just like Heroes 3 Might and Magic in the past.
It works on OS7 very smoothley!

Small con negative it is more fun to play with friends who live close to you, but still this game works great.
