About This Game

The adventure in Heroes VI, starting 400 years before events in Heroes V, catapults a family of heroes into a fast-paced epic story where Angels plot to end -- once and for all -- an unfinished war with their ancient rivals, the Faceless.

A legendary Archangel General is resurrected, but with his powers crippled. Plagued by horrible memories of the Elder Wars, he plots to recover his powers and take control of Ashan while destroying both Faceless and Demons in a series of carefully orchestrated attacks and betrayals. He underestimates, however, the power of the all-too-human Griffin dynasty.

The destiny of these Griffin heroes will be determined by our players.

Played the game for all of 90 seconds before it quit because it couldn't connect to Ubisoft's servers. If online authentication is required to play a game then it needs to be solid or it's worthless. Uninstalled. Regretful to have wasted the money.

There are interface problems like not showing why you cant build after using marketplace.
There are graphic problems like the game takes 8 seconds after loading to load all the models.
There are problems with the ability to choose every hero. You have to buy them all for 0 Gold, but that takes around 10 Minutes for no reasons since they dont cost anything.
And there are, and those are the worst, it crashes randomly. But its too often (every 2 hours).
All the Problems diminish the fun too much to continue playing the game. Time can be spend elsewhere way better.

I like the well-planned campaigns and storyline. Graphics is colourful and eye-pleasing. Gameplay is excellent, it's very much a HOMM. I dont actually having problem with Uplay, by going online you get to play with some extra goodies which are quite nice like the dynasty weapons and dynasty traits etc. But I think that to be able to play offline is important as well especially for some players that have no constant internet. Uplay is still not good enough for seemless play between online and offline. Overall, it's a very good game. Im looking forward to play H5 ToE as well after finishing H6. As for H7, its much criticised bugs refrain me from buying it. FYI, H6 is not as buggy as I read from the user reviews and so I give a recommendation to H6 with reservations.

When i first bought this game, i was on a high from M&M V, which was an amazing game. I was really looking forward to play a new Heroes game, which better graphics and good old school gameplay.... So what did i get? A game, which is actually worse then V in pretty much all factors. The gameplay is worse, the graphics are worse and the world itself is confusing and really not well put together. The campaign itself is also pretty bad, and while it has some great boss moments here and there, the game just dissappoint.

If you have not played Heroes V, DONT BUY THIS GAME. Buy Heroes V instead and if you really like that, then you can proberly survive this game aswell and enjoy to some extent.

Now to the very bad part. The game alone is proberly a 6,5-7/10, eventhough it is worse then V, but the thing, which nearly makes this game unplayable is the goddamm Uplay integration. But what is so bad abou the Uplay thing? Well, let me sum up:

1:It blocks you from playing the game an account on their service, which would not be bad if the servers worked all the time, but you are gonna find yourself limited by how the servers work.
2: Unless you have internet connection all the time, the game blocks features from your gameplay. Hero weapens and ingame achievments are blocked and the game is nearly unplayable without these weapens.
3: You will constantly battered with announcements from Uplay while you play, which can really stop a good gaming stride.

All in all, the game is alright, maybe even a bit bad, but this game really made me hate Ubisoft. They have ruined the Heroes genre and they are only making it worse with Heroes 7. So my advice? Play more of Heroes 3 and 5, they are amazing games and you are not forced to stay connected all the time to play these games. You can actually go on vacation and enjoy some strategy, without Ubisoft interfering.

So, I finally got around to giving this game another go seeing how reviews for HOMM7 were tanking, and the reviews for this game had actually improved over time. HOMM games in general are, after all, great, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that UPlay finally allowed me to start an Ubisoft game. Its taken many years - when was this game released? - since I have had a trouble free start to an Ubisoft game - for these same reasons, I rarely buy from this developer.

Anyhow, it was a fun few hours, but I saved up and went to bed. Tonight; no saves. Hard to say why. I've tried creating new games, make saves, quit, reload - all gone. I believe the fix to this is changing UPlay so that it is in offline mode, however, if I right click UPlay in the system tray and go to settings, it tells me "UPlay has detected an unrecoverable error and must shut down!". Every.single.time. Seriously? We can finally play our games after.... 5 years?! It only took you 5 years to make your DRM launcher work and now it eats all of your save progress instead? FFS Ubisoft, get your affairs in order!

Also, the Conflux - an in game message board where people can write things on various posts at different locations on maps, is up there with worst ideas in the history of gaming. I don't understand if Ubi intended for it to be used for people to post how to 'beat' maps, or just to swear at each other or about the dev - if so, mission accomplished - but it adds nothing useful to the game other than forcing an otherwise unnecessary always online function, which is really the core problem with the whole game - unless you are playing multiplayer, there is no reason to necessitate going through all of the rubbish with the UPlay DRM which breaks even the single player experience - I can't imagine it would actually be successful in connecting a multiplayer match for the duration of a game.

So incredibly Buggy. Seriously. Not only do they REQUIRE you to connect to their ubisoft servers to even play the game, they hold game content that makes the game so much more enjoyable in "online only mode". I do NOT appreciate this kind of ridiculous DRM protection.

I never got to play this game. It made me install a SECOND program to play and had some complicated sign-up, install procedure. Already I didn't want any of it, but there were errors with UPlay and things weren't working and I gave up. I honestly want my money back.

They never told us we would need to install a second game-community program. It's absolutely absurd.

In general its a good game, it gives many hours of fun.
Pros:
+ "New" concept with set items on the heroes
+ An online connected item system (dynasty) which enables you to level up weapons as your hero gains experience. (too bad for people who cant connect to the internet all the time)
+ You can choose your hero type and still select abilities from both might and magic classes
+ All heroes can learn spells of higher ranks, and not randomly
+ Challanging campaigns and nice boss battles!
+ Interesting mix of abilities.
+ Good looking graphics and designs.

Cons:
- Set items are a bit booring, they give general stats and mostly nothing awsome. 6 set items should give a big bonus.
- Dynasty items require ALOT of experience to level.. During campaigns you are stuck using the same weapon all the time, because it has a healing spell... So not much variation possible.
- Campaigns are very long, and creeps increase in size so fast you are not allowed to lose any units. (therefore you need all the healing spells available)
- Enemy heroes magically always knows what castle is unprotected and the exact size of your army. Enemy armies also grows in an rate far greater than your 10 vs 1 castles.
- Stunn spells doesnt work. Examples:
* Succubus charm/seduce spell clearly states it stunns for 2 turns. The creature is in fact stunned for the remaining turn(even after their turn has passed).
* Time statis spell clearly states 4 turns, it randomly stunns between 2-4 turns.
* Chilled/frozen usually works for 1 turn as well (they can attack the next turn, after they got stunned).
* All stunn spells counts one turn even though the creature has already done its turn. Makes sense?
- Auto combat always makes you lose units, which mentioned earler you cannot afford. every battle (up to 100 times) has to be done manually as a result of the increasing size of the creeps, which also almost never retreat, even if your army is much, much larger.
- Still bugs in the game. I could buy 100 units when there were 11 available and won the map. Stunns are buggy.
- Hero movement is buggy. I got boots, hero trait, stable, etc etc and still cant get far. But the enemy can always ride further. A hero without an army however can ride through the whole map with the same buffs.
- Very less information of the hero stats.. How many movement points does the hero have? How does it get increased mana? What does one might power do? Some spells cant be cast because of lacking information..
- Lacking tool tips everywhere..
- Campaign doesnt follow a chronological pattern, its very confusing.
- I can go on for ever.

HOMM 3 beats all the games. HOMM 4 was very fun as you could make OP melee heroes who became imortal with magic spells from an assisting hero. HOMM 5 was ok. HOMM 6 had lots of potential if more time was put into polising it.
A mixture of HOMM 6 and HOMM 4 would realy do the trick, i like the ORPG direction the game is going.

As a game it's like a 5/10 with more bugs than a bethesda sandbox game. Considering the Uplay requirement it's a -10/10. I play offline a lot and that is impossible with uplay. When I play with the internet connected the uplay app is constantly sending packets back and forth. I don't know what exactly the point of them is, but it's significantly more than any other background application, usually beating all others combined. I don't trust ubisoft to begin with so that made this game something that will probably sit in my library for the rest of time with the likes of divinity II and other garbage games.
