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.

Used to play h3 in my younger days. One of my first games actually. I was seriously considering h6, but uplay and lack of dev support and whole bunch more issues pushed me to this. Well I m glad it did, memories comes to life once again! Go out there and FIGHT you stupid ♥♥♥ doubter;)

I've been playing Heroes of Might and Magic games for fourteen years, and - despite the age of the title - HoMM V is a masterpiece. Recommended for anyone who loves turn based strategy.

Heroes of M & M 5 is a good game, a bit dated but a solid Fantasy Turn Based Strategy with RPG elements.

TBS is a niche genre and sometimes intimidating, but Heroes has simple and easy gameplay, you control heroes who must explore the scenarios in search of goals and has troops to assist you in combat. Just like on the scenario map, combat is turn based and also easy to understand as well as the towns managing. The AI is good and challenging, tricky sometimes. Is graphically outdated but perfectly playable, the weak point is the animation of campaign cut-scenes, badly made.

The overall campaign is ridiculously large, there are 6 factions and each has a campaign with 5 phases with a storyline that connects them, the plot has no big deal and the feeling that remains is that the campaign was made to play and better understand each faction in case of playing in skirmish mode.

Being long the campaign becomes tiresome and the heroes skill system is a bit complicated to understand. I had performance issues and the game only opened when installed in the same directory with Steam. I recommend this game for those who enjoy strategy, fantasy, and looking for something different then RTS or with a slower pace.

7/10
