WARNING:

Game will destroy your sleeping pattern. Do not play if you have any obligations to anything. Oh and also don't upgrade peasants to conscripts you lose the daily gold bonus. Most fights can be won with puppet master or frenzy, conjure pheonix is excellent for fighting creatures that can't be mind controlled though. Never put a stack of mages behind your own units, you will accidentally kill them. Markal reminds me of Scar from the Lion King. Isabel is just tragic. Just play this game, seriously.

Great game ! use to play the 2nd one when I was 10, 100s of hours in that one, this one is looking the same.. everything runs smooth graphics are great, sounds better. and the map details are great aswell.. gameplay is very easy, only takes about 10 or 15 min to figure out, but if you do the main quest the first 2 missions are pretty much lessons. Its deff worth the money for the amount of hours you WILL sink into it lol.

The best HoMM game in the series IMO. I grew up playing HoMM 2 and got a physical copy of this game as soon as it came out. I've put hundreds of hours into it and still enjoy it to this day. After 5 the series takes a nose dive in the wrong direction - seriously, Ubisoft what the ♥♥♥♥ are you doing to this series? I have the sixth game and it's 'playable' but won't be buying the 7th which is out now and looks like ♥♥♥♥. I hope the future of the franchise isn't beyond saving already - just revamp the old games with modern graphics and animations and my wallet is yours to violate how ever you please.

I've never played this game until now, the soundtrack is amazing, i normally don't like this type of "chess" turn based combat, but it was fun.

i like the graphics, the enviroment, the sound quality, and the gameplay.
