A great game, one of the best in the series, second upgrade and non-restricted skillwheel [unlike that stupid Homm7], much better designed faction skill and many more is the best feature of all Homm series

Download the mods like AI enhance/ overhaul... It is worth buying!!

Only downside is it graphic is a bit old... but gameplay is awesome!!

I think Tribes Of The East is very good. I was disappointed by Hammers Of Fate (too short campaign, too simple and uninteresting new faction), but Tribes Of The East is a very successful extension. Orcs are really nice to play (new fighting tactics with the rage of blood), are very beautiful. The three campaigns are very catchy, and it feels good to replay the necropolis and good old Zehir (always so charismatic ! ). The game is moreover a stand-alone allowing to discover the world of Heroes of Might & Magic V. Great achievement !

Heroes of Might & Magic 3:n jälkeen paras HOMM. Sisältöä on vähemmän kuin 3. osassa ja tekoäly on aika heikko, mutta jotain taikaa tässä on.

TL,DR: Treats Heroes 3 itch, but doesn't offer much new.

Pros:
- good 'ole Heroes 3 with expanded hero and creature skill system
- a bit too cartoonish, but still very solid and stylish graphics and overall design
- every faction is very different gameplay-wise due to new global racial ability system

Cons:
- too many crucial things are random-based, way too many for a TBS
- low variety of interactive nodes on the map: either a guarded treasury, a permanent or temporary + to some stat or an outdoor variety of some sort of a town building. Some challenged nodes like "+1 luck to all owner's heroes" or an architect's hut that gives some discount on buildings in owner's towns or allows to build twice per day would be nice. Alas
- Overabundance of creature abililies makes combat very varied, but you'll have no idea what many of those abilities actually do even when you use them, because their effects are not stated anywhere in the game. There is a fan-made manual for that though.
- AI is not very I
- Random map generator is still quite glitchy

P.S. Too bad Heroes 6 went over the top and treated Heroes 5's two sore fingers by chopping the whole leg off.

I think this version of the game is the best among all, especially new ones. This is definitely my favourite expansion, I'd say it worths the money, I've played every version of it, not counting the very first ones, or did I... it was long ago, though if you look at this game, the trailer and you're not sure to buy it or not to buy it then I can tell you that you should buy it, I totally recommend this game.

8.5 / 10

It is stand - alone expasion pack.

Awesome music, good graphics , very addictive , fun turn based tatics game.
These are things when in comes to HOMM. And HOMM5 is not different.

But be careful. It will gonna make you pay a lot of time. I mean it.
The one-time play can cost you about 1 and half hour and possbilly even more!
The fact that luck plays major role in this game can kinda make you upset. (there's many radom stuff in this game)

Note that there's mod that make you play other HOMM5 campaigns on this expasion pack.(orginal , HOF)

Very fun game. The best in turn based strategy if you ask me

Bought heroes 6, was dissappointed and even more dissapointed when i couldnt even finish 1 mission because it stopped working. Remembered this game was good. And now that I play it, I realize it's very close to heroes 3 in mechanics(heroes 3 was a diablo 2 quality game imo).

Get it. Such a good game.

In my opinion this is the pinnacle of the HOMM series.
Skip Heroes 6. It really is terrible.

If you have never played a Heroes of Might and Magic game, shame on you. This series spans back to my early childhood. The Heroes game I played the most was WOG, a custom expansion for HoM&M3. I loved this series and logged countless hours into these games. They are indepth yet easy to pick up, hard most of the time unless you are a seasond vet.

Build up your town. Recruit Troops (this version allows upto 7th level units). Upgrade your buildings to get bounses, like resorces, spells, or your creature dwelling. In HoMM5 you can select from 2 differant upgrades for each creature type. You have a army that is lead by your hero(s). On the map you will be just one person, but if you attack a creature stack or another player the map closes in and you switch to battle. This is simalar to RPGs where u wander around a map and you trigger combat then cut screen, there is your party ready to kick some butt.

This game allows may differant types of combonations with town faction/hero selection/creature types/pre-gen maps/campain.

New Features include the single player campain where you play as the orcs, and i think the 'caravans' are new to this expainsion. Caravans can be selected where you hire creatures and there u selecet where you want your guys from and the caravans will farry you troops from creature dwellings or even other towns.

I must also point out this game does have some flaws. First I mention the AI, to be honest the AI in heroes games has never been the best and this game is no exception. Many people claim that the normal setting is "Comp doesn't even try" (Yes they will even not capture resorce nodes, and be crippled by larger maps). Also people claim the hard setting is "Comp Cheats way to much". Don't be upset, they are fan made mods that tweeks the AI so its more cunning and less cheating. The random map generator built into the game is poor compaired to previous games. Lack of teams is the biggest issuse, for multi player games. If your playing single player the random map gen is fine. NOTE: the time for the computer to move on random maps seems to take extreamly long time even with a 'newer' computer. YET AGAIN, fans of the Heroes games shine through as I have found 2 other random map gens, I've only used one and it worked great, but the comp lag remaind.

The best things I like about this game, caravans (YAY), the gfx (not the best but better then earlyer Heroes), the camera controals(feels natural, smooth when combined with arrow keys), balance (like most heroes games there is no horrid balance issuses), and the community (you will have to resort to the web for forums,)

Heroes games have a place in my heart and this one is no exception.

9/10

Heroes of might and magic is one of my favorite game series since I was a Kid and I would have to say that this game is the best in the series with both of the expansions. A great buy for any fan of the series. 10/10

Heroes of Might and Magic V Tribes of the East have everything from the basic game, Hamer of Fate and some new things. I recomend to get it and if you dont have the base game get it all. It's a easy to learn, hard to play turned based strategy game. It offers alot of fun and a good chalenge for noobs and old hardcore players. TOTE also brougth back the good old Stronghold factoin.

This is one of the greatest games that I've ever played.

The campaign mode offers a rich story that follows on from previous HoMM titles and provides quite a challenge on heroic difficulty. The multiplayer mode has incredible replayablity, offering players a choice from a vast selection of heroes, each with various strengths and weaknesses. There's a good selection of maps to play, as well as a lot of user created maps to download. This is certainly a game that's easy to learn but hard to master.

One of the best turn based strategy games out there. Highly recommend.

Awesome game, that builds upon the popular third part and improves it without changing the winning formula.
From all HOMAM games (up to 6), i like this one the most!

Fans of TBS games will have a great and long time with this game!
Absolutely recommended!
