I had forgotten how much fun the HoMM games were.
A bit slow by todays action game standards but fun none the less.
Turn based strategy goodness.
If you have played any of the games in this HoMM series or the King's Bounty series then you know this is more of the same.
This game has more cut scenes for story telling than I remember but you can watch or skip them to your liking
It has OK / good graphics and there is not much else to say about it.

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.

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!

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.

This game is one of those that I could never play in my childhood due to the lack of a decent pc.
I always dreamt of playing this as I was obsessed with the 2nd entry of the series, and playing the 4th like an idiot.
I would always print out screenshots of the monster/creatures, the astounding castle views and the epic battles and put them together as little books and look at them all day. I also went so far building my own castles in the woods lol.
And now that I finally have it, I simply adore it, played it with a friend till late in the night and just can't get myself to delete it from my pc. The two dlc's adding 2 other fractions also blew my mind.

This game is a MUST for every strategy-fan and a good entry for those who want to become one.
I rate 9.1/10 due to a bunch of bugs and it being a bit too hard at times.

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.

Iedereen die van turn-based strategie houdt,kent de serie. De 'looks' zijn wat gedateerd,maar det doet niet af aan de gameplay. en daar gaat het in dit soort spellen. om de missies zijn redelijk gevarieerd. De AI doet het goed, en wie er is keuze genoeg aan instellingen. het geluid is volstrekt onbelangrijk en in de in-game filmpjes is er geen enkele vorm van lip-sync, maar dat is allemaal biojzaak, wat mij betreft.

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!

8/10 for Graphics (for a game that comes out in 2006 is badass)
8/10 for Gameplay (turn based game in this game is fine)
9/10 for Story (best fantasy story game I ever played)
10/10 for music and soundtracks (I think this is the best part of this game)

If you want to start to play Might and Magic, I recommend to start with V!
Here on V you have more factions to play, and the play style is different to each one. The first missions are to simple and you can't enjoy much play with Heaven (people, knights and angels) but when you start play with necromancy (spoiler alert) you will be able to play with Heaven too.
I like this game because it's some difficult... You need to calculate your moves, take troops in all your cities and strike enemy only if they have not reinforcements... And most of the times you need run away from the enemy just because they have thousands of troops and you have few peasants.
The final battle of the final mission give you something different... (spoiler) You will be able to play a battle with 5 hereoes.
The expansions like Tribes of the East and Hammers of Fate are awesome too but the original MMH5 is better...

Heroes of Might and Magic V is a turn based strategy game in a long series which started back in 1995 with Heroes of Might and Magic: A Strategic Quest and has been an extremely popular and successful strategy game for many years with the 6th game in the series coming out in October of 2011. As mentioned, HoMM V is a turn based strategy game where you control one hero for each army. The hero has 8 slots for 8 different units but they can have as many units as they would like under their command with that unique unit. The different units include classes such as archers, soldiers, cavalry, archangels and devils, ghosts, ghouls and many more. When your hero travels along the map they can pick up different relics and items that can increase attack, defense, luck, moral and other abilities and items that will help in a battle. They hero can only travel so far per day and after they are done they pass their turn on to the other opposing player whether that be AI or Human.
During their turn they can fight any enemies within their range which in turn starts a battle with a grid like system. These battles are also turn based and are based on the units speed not necessarily strict turn order. If an archer gets a lucky shot in they can get a boost and moral and actually go again either right after or sometime before their original turn order. Some units are faster than others; for example, griffins can go twice before the peasants even go once.

During the game the player can also take over cities, towns and keeps. The main city can be upgradable which allows you to build different units and upgrade others. Along with that the player can also higher other mercenary heroes that can have their own armies and travel around under the player’s control. Towns and keeps have certain units tied to them that each week replenish and can be bought by the heroes to add to their armies. In order to upgrade/build buildings and buy these units the player must capture strategic resources all along the map that include wood, ore, gems, mercury, sulfur, crystal and gold.

The story is a pretty simple one and spans across 6 different campaigns (the expansions add 2 more) which include Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, Dungeon, Sylvan and Academy. I only got through the first campaign as the game is very long but in this one Isabel the Queen is about to get married to King Nicolai when the demon invasion causes them to get separated and she is working towards getting back with the King while killing as many demons on the way as she can. She eventually finds him dying from some demonic spell that Agrael, a demon, attacks him with and is determined to get revenge against all demons and after which the dying king declares her ruler of the Holy Griffin Empire when he dies.

The graphics of the game are fairly basic and even for their time they weren’t anything special. In 2006 when we saw this game launch we saw other RTS and TBS games such as Empire at War, Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40k. So even if I was judging this by today’s standards it didn’t really even live up to the standards of 2006 when the game launched. Though there isn’t anything really wrong with the graphics, they just feel dated and not as impressive as other games of the time. There was one thing that kept bugging me about the game and that would be the camera. You couldn’t click on different items in the world without moving it around or if there was a fog of war it forced the unit to go all the way around or wouldn’t allow the unit to go forward at all.
The Sound was also equally bland and the music was very repetitive. The music didn’t so much get in the way or be annoying it just didn’t change very much. The voice acting wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t awful either. However the sound effects were unique for each unit so there is that. The biggest thing for me however was the setting the game was in. There are so many different areas and creatures in the game that it made for a very interesting adventure through the first campaign just getting to know this world.

Overall I can’t really compare this to any other game in the series as I haven’t played them however I have really enjoyed the gameplay of the game so much that it made me want to buy the 6th game in the series since I know the graphics have been vastly improved and look very impressive. I am giving the game a little boost in rating due to the limits of technology at the time however my 5 tiers are what the game rates to today’s standards.
• Story - 2 out of 5
• Gameplay – 5 out of 5
• Graphics – 2.5 out of 5
• Sound - 2 out of 5
• Fun – 5 out of 5
Pros:
- Great Turn based gameplay
- Can be Hard and rewarding
- A nice learning curve
- Interesting world and lore
Cons:
- Music/Sound are ok, nothing thrilling
- Story is ok however the world is great
- Irritating Camera

I’m giving a Total score of 74%

I have always loved the Heroes of Might and Magic games, because I grew up playing Heroes 2 and 3. I didn't play 4 that much, but I've REALLY enjoyed playing Heroes 5. It has the best of everything I loved about my old memories.

Pretty darn good stuff.

Purists (much like Resident Evil purists) will say that it sucks balls, that it doesn't even touch the shining paragon that is HoMM 3, that it should never have seen the light of day, blah blah blah

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. It's as good, even maybe slightly better than HoMM 3. With expansions mind you.

All the races end up being really balanced (with the expansions lol) while still having a VAST array of differing unit, hero and ability choices. That alone is quite a feat.

But on top of that is a killer art style, a fabulously rendered world map, and an updated (for the better, morale was way way overpowered in HoMM3) combat system

Okay first off, for all those who want this game but read the system requirements and thought "Oh drat, I cannot play this on my system, I have a windows 8 and it says up to XP only". I have GREAT news for you-I have this game, on a cheap 350 dollar notebook from walmart. It has a windows 8 OS. This game-runs PERFECTLY on it. I did not even need to change or alter any compatibility settings or mess with the graphics or audio configuration. On default layout, no changes at all-it runs perfectly. Now, obviously, I cannot guarantee this will be true for absolutely everyone. I can however say given how cheap my own computer system is-I think this game would work for almost everyone running a windows 8 system. Probably also the same with windows 7 but I cannot say for certain on that one.

Now onto the game itself. Heroes of Might and Magic series is a well known and well loved series for a number of good reasons. First of all, there are different races, all with their unique units and hero specializations. This particular Heroes of Might and Magic is I feel the best of the series so far (Yes, better even that Might and Magic Heroes VI.) The graphics are fine if not great, but the game itself is what makes this game so much fun. With both single player, multiplayer, and even hot seat player capability you can play with friends far or near, or solo. It has campaigns for each race, all of which combine into one epic story on love, loss, and each faction.race fighting to survive and rule over all.

Combat is laid out on a open fiend or fighting to defend or gain control of a castle/keep with wall fortifications between you and the enemy. You have control over all of your units and can even through leveling you hero, gain control over the war machines in your unit such as the first aid tent, the ballista, and the catapult, allowing you to heal the units of your choice or aim the ballista at a particular target, or have the catapult try and take out only the door or remove the turret towers aimed at you as a example.

The units themselves can have special abilities. For example, the demon units can use a skill called gating, to summon up more of their own kind to join you for the battle (These gated units are temporary and vanish after each battle). The Undead units with the help of their hero can rise again after death, and if you defeat living targets, can even spend dark energy points to raise them again as undead units in your army (the type of unit they turn into depends on how powerful they were before). The list goes on.

Outside of the campaigns which are fun and throw new challenges at you to keep the game fresh and fun (and also tie into the storyline perfectly), such as having to avoid a enemy or outrun them to a safe zone to meet up with a particular hero or town. Other times you have one week to take over a town and set up camp before having to wipe out the enemy that stands in your way and so on.

The game play itself has a little learning curve, to understand what different objects on the map do for you, and figuring out how best to defeat units or how to control your own to the best advanatage-but the learning curve is built into the storyline so you are not derailed by some overtly lengthly tutorial. You simply learn as you progress and by the mid-part of the very first campaign, you'll be a expert hand at building up your keep, controlling your units, and understanding how to level your hero to your advanatage (Though more time playing with all the races will be needed to fully see what is the best way to level a particular hero).

Each hero has it's own unique talent as well. There is a elven hero who has a powerful ranged strike and boosts the damage of all it's groups hunter (archer) units. There is a demon hero whose spedciality is making each ballista shot explosive, doing extra damage each time the ballista's turn comes around. There is a Magic Hero who specializes with the smallest of units, the gremlins, who jhave a ranged blunderbuss shot attack that means a huge army of many small minions with a combined strength enough to take down far more powerful units of lesser numbers. The list again goes on. So it is in your interest to read up when you build your tavern, where you recruit new heroes, to see what each hero does and choose the one whose specialization you need most-someone who can race over the landscape and explore it our simply outrun the enemy, someone who brings extra firepower, or someone more specialized for a particular foe or to best defend your keep while you take your main hero out into the fray.

The game is, in fact-complete in every sense as is, but if you finish the campaigns and want more-good news again! There are two expansion campaign games for this game (look at the DLC for the game or buy the whole collection at once for $19.99 USD). Each one adds a new race and continues the storyline. First, the dwarven race and then the orcs-also calle dht eribes of the East.) I highly recommend both expansions as the races are fun, enjoyable, and and a completely fresh set of skills and tech and units to the game. The orcs are particularly amusing, as you can have cyclops through goblin in a kamikaze fashion into the face of enemy units. It only costs one mere goblin, the cheapest of units, to do a massive damage spray with the help of your powerful cyclops' throwing arm.

If you love having complete control over a army, a castle, and a hero-if you enjoy besieging castles and trampling the enemy under hoof and claw, if you have ever enjoy any turn based, fantasy game with a bit of storyline-then this game is for you. You will NOT be dissapointed by it.

For this game by itself without the DLC, it costs a mere $9.99 and offers many hours of gameplay and has endless replayability with the multiplayer mode (Which you can play solo as well against as few as one or up to 8 AI competitors).

So really, there is no reason to NOT buy this game unless you truly despise everything turn based.Even then, this game may well change your mind or at least make you willing to put up with the turn based combat for the sheer fun of everything else about the game.
