DO NOT BUY THIS! Game is just a rushed developlment that lost all features from the previous game that offers way more... ai is dumb beyond limits ... will just wait to get killed or sometimes cast spells that dammage their own units for no reason...no custom heroes or special artifacts..no unit diversity....honestly graphics are pretty much same as heroes 6 and even less with the notifications now which is just a plain cheap box that was ripped straight from heroes 3.....this is a cash grab version and not an actual game sorry to the fans of this game.......

To clear somethings first, I've played HOMM VII only since the start of Patch 1.8 and have purchased this game at $29.99 and have loved every bit of it. Obviously my experience is vastly differnt from those who have played at launch day or a bit after lauch day.

This game is still addictive as the previous HOMM series and cannot wait unitl more content is implemented. Creature abilities could be more diverse and there were a few bugs and glitches there; nothing gamebreaking for me at least. I fully believe Ubisoft/Limbic are working on tweaking the game and fixing these minor issues. The visuals are nice touch and improvement over HOMM VI as well although alot of units have been reused from the previous game too.

Some of the main story missions were a bit bland (Dark Elves and Griffin) but I loved the scenario missions and The Lost Tales of Axeoth missions as well. I've stayed up some nights trying to figure out how many heroes in the scenario maps will come to a close; beats the voice-acting scripts by alot IMO and gives the player a backstory to some of the history of the characters in the game.

I'm not a diehard fan of HOMM III and V which seem to be the best in the series for alot of fans, but I also appreciate attempts to make the series unique (Flanking mechanics and skill wheel) You know you have been a supporter of a company when you've been by their side during their ups and downs. I truly believe this game will be more spectacular with their new add-on (Trials by Fire) coming soon but as of now, is still a solid turn-based strategy game that you should try.

This game is not done, super buggy and poorly optimized, and lacks in gameplay depth. Heroes 7 went backwards from Heroes 6

I've played the HOMM series (HOMM 4 lyfe, screw this Might & Magic Heroes BS) since the very beginning and while this isn't the worst game in the franchise (HOMM I sets a pretty low bar but that game at least has the excuse of being really old and dated), it's certainly one of the worst. This is mostly due to the fact that it is so buggy and a lot of those bugs are yet to be fixed.

The cutscene graphics are horribly conceptualized and the result is this dated look that does not offer any of the flavor they obviously were trying to achieve. The faction leaders don't even move in the meeting room, and yes I know recent great games have used still images with voiceovers but that is intended to portray an authentic storybook perspective. This is just lazy.

The story itself is derivative as all hell and Ubisoft ripped off both the Warcraft universe and George R.R. Martin's universe from "A Song of Ice and Fire". An orc named Thrall, carbon copies of Tywin Lannister and a sylvan character that is so blatantly a redux of Daenerys. These characters are in the MAIN STORY of the game, not customized maps. That is inexcusable and in very poor taste. The game play itself is nothing special either, basically everything previous games have offered but with nothing new. This was Ubisoft's sorry attempt at a cash cow. Sure we get some new creatures but this game is a pile of garbage.

I played the first HoMM when I was only 12 years old and I'm a diehard fan of the series. Although the series has its ups and downs but 6th game was very, very good in my opinion.

aaand we come to this...

look there is simply no explanation for having poor animations, lousy (or no) cutscenes and almost no polishing. Ubisoft just threw some unfinished game onto the community thinking "heroes fans will buy everything anyway". This is plain cheap. I'm so sorry for what my childhood favorite game has become.

I have waited patiently to review this game out of hope it would eventually be fixed. Nine months this game has been out, and it is still impossible to transfer items between heroes due to bugs that make them disappear. I won't even bother to go into any more detail, as there are already countless reviews cataloging every frustration of this ponderous failure on the part of Limbic Entertainment. This game is an abysmal, inexcusable mess. Period.

Soooo... dispite all the negitve stuff I've heard about this game, I bought it because I enjoyed Heroes V alot and I wanted another hot seat game to play. BIG mistake, With a i5-4690 16GB of RAM and a GeForce 970 (in simple terms more tham the recommemded requirements) and the game can't load a "huge" map from thr RMG. I can create it in the Editor, but as soon as I try to play it *crash* kicks me out back to windows , no error code nothing! And then there are single player missions...Honestly, I couldn't care less about the single player, but I figured it would be how you unlock more heroes for hot seat. After 20+ hours playing the Haven set, mostly on Blessings of Freedom, I had to stop playing or I would do something drastic... All said, hot seat is still sort of fun but "big maps" aren't big enough and single player sucks...F*** you Ubisoft... now back to playing Fallout,pretending every Raider, Super Mutant, and Deathclaw is a MMH7 developer! (Seriously, I can play FO4 on ULTRA and I can't play a huge map on the LOWEST setting! WTF)

I had high expectations for this game, since I had played heroes once before, but it has really let me down this time.
From the 4 games I played in the multiplayer modus 3 games froze during battle.
We tried different savepoints, but we just couldn´t fix the bug.
On top of all that crashed the games multiple times, you might argue that it´s because of bad hardware,
but my PC still fulfils the requirements for this game.
As I mentioned earlier I had really high expectations and a lot of love for (in my opinion) best turn based
strategie game, but it´s simply unplayable at this point.

After playing M&M VII Haven campaign for a while I just lost interest. It is no surprise that the campaign was boring, as most of the campaigns from earlier M&M issues were boring too.

I noticed after a while that the AI is dumber than a bag of hammers and unless the campaign puts it on a rail it can't fight its way out of a paper bag. You might think that the auto-combat would be improved as it gives you the option to manually replay the results, but the trouble is you will always replay the results because the AI is killing your army when it manages the combat. So in the Campaign you'll have a boatload of little battles to fight manually.

The town display didn't work right at all at 1440P the improvements didn't show up half the time and the text references to them either weren't shown or way off the mark.

Town improvements are expanded, which you might think is nice, but since there's so many you have to carefully pick & choose otherwise you'll have incompatible creature variations & types from different towns, and thats if they are the same town type.

The Skill Wheel suffers from the same expandititis. An actual manual would've been useful since picking skills was like throwing darts. You just don't know how to value some of them.

Finally, possibly the most disappointing is the lackluster graphics. All the maps I played on were dull-looking, and have so much hill-climbing there should be a Mountain Goat skill. I just fired up HOMM5, a 10 year old game, and I liked the way it looked better than M&M VII. It could just be me/my system but M&M VII looks smeary/foggy/smokey onscreen.
