A superb entry in the Heroes franchis, Heroes V is exactly what you expect as a heroes fan. If you've never played Heroes before, I's like to recommend this title to you as an excellent intro to turn-based strategy gaming.

You basically run an empire, determined by the scenario setup, of a few towns, and can recruit army leaders ("heroes") to lead your forces to victory. The heroes level up, RPG-style, as they win combat encounters and explore the map, and the towns develop in a similar fashion, as you invest in them -- producing larger, more interesting armies as they get better.

Heroes is very much a strategic title, rather than a tactical one -- its true that bad tactics can lose you a battle very easily, but good tactics can't really best a vastly superior force, because the AI simply never plays in a manner to would allow you to overrun it, in a such a manner. You win the battle before it starts, as it were.

If you're into strategy, and high fantasy, this is a game for your library, plain and simple.

I did manage to find an even BETTER deal, outside Steam; speccifically being a copy of it, with it's expansions included.
----
When I first played this game, I was dissapointed due to the fact that, when it came to some custom standalone scenarios, I couldn't choose a faction type, to play as. But then again, at least this game is definitely not terrible, and overall, doesn't quite have the glitches, that "Might & Magic: Heroes VI" does.
What makes it convincing is, this game combines the genres of turn-based strategy games with minor town development involved, (so in other words, games like Sega's "Total War" franchise, only with being fantasy-based) with tactical-rpg elements. Only thing is, only your leaders are able to level up, and NOT the recruited army members; they're simply being LED, by your leaders, that you get to play as. There are two types; "might", which focus more on strength, and "magic", which focuses more on spells that can be cast, to fight against your foes, but still being a bit more tricky, in some cases.
----
In other opinions, This game is quite interesting; as an in-depth strategy game, I first remember playing the original "Heroes of Might & Magic", as a used computer game bought from a thrift store, and I did play it, back when I was a younger child. It was pretty good, and overall, I LOVED IT; it definitely had some depth into strategy-based gameplay, even for it's time.
While the game definitely is not the greatest game on Steam, it's definitely a gem that not everyone knows about. I never cared for games outside the "Heroes" series, within the "Might & Magic" franchise.

Buggy UI and AI.
My biggest gripe is the AI. It used to be fine, but now that my hero learned Deflect Missile (and taught it to all my other heroes), that's all they cast in battle. I will be battling against casters or just foot soldiers, and if left to his/her own, my heroes will just start uselessly defending against missiles!

UI is super buggy. Clicking is a little off on buttons but the worst is using sliders. For instance, using the marketplace to exchange resources REQUIRES using the slider. Most of the time the slider doesn't work. Sometimes as you grab and wiggle around it will jump the bar somewhere around where you wanted it. It is impossible to get it exactly where you want it, so after 20-30 seconds of trying to slide, you will choose a value that is "close enough". Same thing when you split your armies, the slider is terrible so it's easier to split army in half (default position of slider), do transfer, then continue splitting the result in half until you get the exact amount you wanted.

This is definitely a keyboard-only game. Most of the screentips show you which buttons to press, but there are still many that you can only figure out by trial/error. For instance, there is no way to split armies without using the keyboard, and there's no tooltip letting you know to hold shift and drag the army.

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 start off by saying this game popped my cherry in the HoM&M series. This game has some features that should have been brought forward into the newer installment and the graphic are overall very well done for 2006. Not much else to say, I bought the newer game and can't even remember the story to this game, but I know I have not finished it yet. That being said I completely ruined the game by using cheats and rushing through, so don't do that to yourself.

If you like Turn Based strategy games or were a fan of the might & magic games when you were younger this is the one to buy! has the gameplay you remember soo fondly and no bugs or problems ive found in my 200+ hours of gameplay.

This is one of the games i would add to library to play with a friend or a couple friends, online can be super fun and has some of the larger maps you will find in this kind of game.

At the price its worth it to pick this up for you & a couple friends. thats what i did and will not come to regret it any time soon.

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.

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...

Have you ever read reviews stating a game is so good, that the reviewer just needs one more turn?
This game is such a game more than most games, imo.

So, many years ago when I was a teenager, I played Heroes of Might & Magic 3 and 4
alongside other few top classics, such as the Age of Empires games.

Therefore, I decided to buy the fifth installment in this game series in the Steam summer sale,
as I never got to play it.

And, I didn't regret it. The game has the same old feel to it, as the other older games in the series.
You can tell by the graphics, that this game is from 2006, but it doesn't matter.
Gameplay is awesome! The graphics are neat and the music is making the game immersive.

The exploration, combat system and fantasy setting is better than most.
The gameplay is deep, but you can jump right into the game, and try it out,
untill you get it, without getting frustrated or confused about the gameplay.

Here I am in the middle of the night, wanting just to play half an hour before going to bed,
but almost three and an half hour has surpassed/flown away, and I had to close the game,
because I really need sleep.

9,5/10 for epic classic turn-based strategy.
One of the best on the market, if you like these types of games.

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%

still one of the best HoMM game for me (Heroes 3 is the best yet outdated graphics).
Prefer this over the new HoMM6.
