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.
