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 shame that the whole Might & Magic and Heroes of Might & Magic franchise isn't on steam.
I'd love so much to play the original heroes of might and magic and might and magic games on steam.
At least, almost all of them are available on Gog.com

It's better than what people says but it's not the greatest game in its genre, the previous ones were better In my opinion and there are games like Age of Wonders which is pretty similar but the unit system is different but this game is still good and worth to play, it's pretty long and can be pretty hard on the hardest difficulty though, even impossible sometimes.

It's a good game that I would suggest to any fans of Heroes of Might & Magic, strategy games and perhaps Might and Magic.

Very old school, especially in dialogues and characters animantion, but still very strong in tactical battles.
