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.

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

Reminds me of the old Might and Magic 3 complete set I have, just for some reason people don't seem to enjoy it all that much though I have to admit that the tutorial helped only a little bit, didn't exactly explain everything in great detail. Though I do understand that with some games you have to go and experiment with some mechanics

I liked the game itself and I loved Might and Magic Heroes IV but never ever ever ever ever ever ever give Ubisoft any more money. Ever. They don't deserve it. Dusted this old game off to try to play it and remembered why I never got around to finishing it. Blackscreens about every 2 combats (as in completely crashes my computer and I have to force restart) and the only fix is to roll back my graphics drivers into the stone age (NO THANK YOU).

Doing what I should've done ages ago and get a refund (hopefully).

I am a big fan of the Franchise, played eves since the first game. HoMM 1, 2 and 3 will be forever etched into my childhood. Wasn't really a fan of the 4th one, 5 was pretty great for its time, and here we are at 6. I'll start of by saying that the graphics and animations are pretty amazing, making me want to come back to this game every time. On the other hand, playing mostly solo the one thing that kills it for me is AI. The AI is just plainly annoying.

I play on normal difficulty, and don't really fall behind, but whenever an enemy hero comes near my kingdom with an army of similar size (mousing over them shows difficulty as : average) they will do evertyhing to stay one step out of my movement. Chasing them is futile because even with similar armies if they think they might lose, they will just run away and bail.

At the same time try attacking their kingdom and their army is suddenly set to : Deadly and will completely annihilate you. I haven't won a single game yet. It's just a cycle of building up my hero and army and then having them stomped by an enemy that spent half the game running away from me, only to come back with the bigges army. Makes for great entertainment. I'll be putting this one back on the shelf....

Do not buy this game.
My PC is an i7, 3GHz, 24GB of ram and a GeForce 960 1GB video adapter
Playing on high graphics settings is not possible as I never get 30fps. Then I tried low graphics and I get 70fps, except every time I move my hero it goes down to 20fps.
I am able to play games like Shadow of Mordor on full graphics without a glitch. How is that possible??

The DRM is terrible, having to install UPlay and be always online is outrageous.
Loading times are very long.
Sometimes textures are missing from the game and I can see the checkered placeholder instead.

I am a big fan of the Heroes franchise but what Ubisoft has done here is at best a wannabe that should be forgotten.
The 20 hours I have on record are already too many for what this game deserves

I would be ashamed of releasing anything like this as an indie/garage developer.
On top of that it has been 5 years and every couple of years I come back to the game hoping for a patch that would make it playable. Instead they release and charge for 2 more expansions of the same crap.

I guess I'm giving up. I'll uninstall it finally and will probably not buy the next one either, because to me this feels like a scam.

So let me tell you a story

You start off in your own base. Sweet!

You're collecting resources around your base, killing neutral monsters and recruiting them, you're a hero!

You've spent a solid hour and a half collecting resources

You realize you're low on gems, ****!

You find a gem factory, Sweet!

You fully upgrade your town, awesomeness!

You finally catch sight of one of the enemy champions >_>

He's coming towards your main base!

You scream ♥♥♥♥♥ please!

You home teleport and wreck him (barely)

You find that sneaky dudes base

You attack it and barely win! Sweet!

You've received a notification that Green team has been eliminated, only red and yellow left!

You suddenly get Yellow team has been eliminated message two days later. 1 v 1 !

You assume Red team must be battered and broken just like you from taking on yellow

Suddenly a red champion appears on your map, you've been waiting for this, he must be weak!

You teleport to your main base where he is, geared up with the max creatures you can possibly buy!

You scroll over him, seeing just how weak he is.....

You notice he's classified as 'deadly' to your top hero....

He attacks your main base, destroying your hopes and dreams

RIP 4 hours of your life

You realize the difficulty was set to easy

You uninstall the game

4/10

Overall the game is really really fun, the only problem is the enemy hero appears out of nowhere with an INSANELY OP army that you're like 'wait how the hell do you have 70 shadow dragons when I only have 40 spider ladies?' not to mention they've got literally every spot full of an artifact where you only have like... maybe 3-4. Compared to Heroes 5, which I played hundreds upon hundreds of hours before the days of steam.... this game is simply silly in terms of AI balance. It's like the AI is like 'oh hey you have 2 more soldiers than the other AI team, gg AI green team, you get their base for free, now go ♥♥♥♥ the player'..... and yes, I had it on easy because it was my third playthrough, normal I got rinsed before a month was past by a AI that apparently could recruit everything known to man on his way to my base since day one.

I love how people don't even try to troubleshoot software anymore... Is this a direct result of Console Peasents buying more PCs, or is the Master Race not as L33t as they assumed?
What can I say though? Better than V in every way, with Blackhole getting very close to mirroring the original feel and mechanics that made this series great. Is this III or IV worthy? Hardly... But it's a start in the right direction, and Hot Seat and MP is as memoriable as ever. Story is meh, but such is the way of HoMM. Hours of fun ... if you know where to spend those hours.

I've owned this game for several years, I install and uninstall when I'm done playing. I see a lot of snipey reviews about Uplay not working, or this game glitching out. That's unfortunate, I haven't had a single problem for 5 years, over 3 desktops. I've run this game on Windows 8, 8.1 and now run it on Windows 10.

I own an i7-based system from 2010, maybe this is magic hardware? I've seen 4 graphics cards play this game, all nVidia (current a 9xx series GTX.)

I think if you are unable to play this game you should be provided with a refund and your CD/Activation key(s) revoked accordingly. It's silly that there would be this many negative reviews for a game that was fun to play, is still fun to play, and which I've never had any problem playing.. I don't know about steam, but I know Origin will refund games that don't work.

Is it so hard for Steam/Ubisoft to do the same?

It is a pure pain to play this as the game is crashing every few minutes, then the game even fails to sync with cloud for resulting in loss of saved games. I have never regretted buying a game until now. I hope that ubisoft chokes on my money.

Playing a hotseat game, not connected to the internet and it says:

"Disconnected, returning to main menu."

♥♥♥♥ you Ubisoft. What did I disconnect from? It's a hotseat game, there is nothing to disconnect from. I lost my save game. You guys should be ashamed of your always on DRM junk. Never buying another "Uplay" game again for this fact and how annoying and buggy Uplay through steam is. It hardly ever synced my save games between computers anyway.

The game itself was boring without the DLC and overpriced with the DLC, glad I only paid a few dollars while everything was on sale.

I tried really hard to like this game, but in the end there is just no way I can. For me, Heroes 5 was the pinnacle of the series and every step 6 takes is a step backwards in my opinion. Here are the 5 biggest problems I have:

1. The AI programming completely ruins the game. In the single player campaign, the AI does not play with the same rules or even close to the same rules as the player. Every creep monster it encounters runs from it, which allows it to pillage everything on the map as quickly as it can walk to it. It also doesn't actually build its cities up. It starts with a predefined city build and just gets flooded with many times more troops per week than the player gets. Additionally, defeated AI heroes respawn with very large armies. This forces you to rush through every map as quickly as possible because the longer you give the AI, the exponentially more numerous his army becomes. Its rate of growth is far beyond what you can keep up with.

2. The skill system is awful. Every hero has some base stats and beyond that, they are all otherwise exactly the same since every hero can be trained in any skill you want. Have a warrior? Spend your skill points and turn him into a spell caster. Have a wizard? Spend some skill points and make him the strongest warrior on the map. It's silly.

3. You can convert towns to different factions. Some people surprisingly like this, but its actually just a bandaid to help compete with the terribly unbalanced/poorly scripted AI. Yes, with just a few ore, wood and gold, you can convert any town of any faction to your faction. Just like magic, instantly. Again, it's just stupid.

4. The campaigns aren't really campaigns. You can bounce around between campaigns mission by mission and ironically have to in order to actually follow the story chronologically. It basically kills any attempt to keep a coherent story line going.

5. It has 2 additional layers of DRM. Uplay is bad enough, but the Heroes 6 "Conflux" always on internet connection requirement is just too painful to bear since half the time it doesn't even connect. There are plenty of times where you can't play the game because the conflux servers are down.

All in all, the game is a nice looking, shallow disaster. Avoid this like syphillis.

I am a HUGE fan of the entire Might & Magic series of games and have played every single one of them. The Heroes of Might & Magic (HOMM) games definitely represent a dated turn-based playstyle that is not for everyone and also seems very hard to improve upon which is why I think each new HOMM game release basically mimics the previous version although with better graphics and a few tweaks here and there.

Heroes VI unfortunately does have a few issues:
- The computer AI just isn't challenging even when played at the toughest level.
- Game crashes are problematic. A common one I come across fequently occurs when in combat agains griffins and they try to use their special attack. At one point after a crash I was simply unable to load any saved game period even after re-installing the game and was forced to start from the beginning again.
- Although not technically an issue, I have a strong dislike to having to log into both Steam and UPlay in order to play this basically single player based game!

Played the Custom game a bit, enjoyed it well enough. Tried the campaign and then quit immediately after I realized that most of the missions are ones where you simply will not get a town; whatever units you were given at the start are the ones you need to finish the mission with and the only viable way to win is to just resurrect and heal everything you have with no casualties.

Played (actually can't played) when it's first released due to game breaking bugs, crashes and various reasons. But well... Such as the destiny of Ubisoft's games, nearlly all of their games unplayable at the begining.

After mastering uplay! And god known how many years later, i decied to give a shot again. It's beautiful, smooth, nearly bug-free (encountered only one bug, not game breaking etc.) and loved it.

So if you want to some good storyline while playing casually just give a shot. It's my new favorite within might and magic.

I'm going to start by saying I really wanted to like this game. It actually has the makings of a good game in there but for one major flaw. I can live with uplay and I've only once had any trouble logging in. My problem is with how the game handles the difficulty.

It has been mentioned before but your resupplies are granted weekly. The enemy's troops are also topped up weekly. The problem is that as you're exploring the map getting into fights and loosing troops the enemy isn't. On my first play through I wanted to get around the map, get into battles and collect prizes (usually armor). By the time I got to the boss his army was so big they were undefeatable. I started again, this time racing through as fast as I could. This time I pushed on to quickly and was caught out by a roaming enemy.

Both times I played on normal because I don't do easy. I'm sure with another couple of attempts I could get it right but there's the problem. There's a difference a game being hard and a game being cheap. If the game took your play style and army size into account it could have worked. Instead the developers figured it would be best to have the enemy army grow at a consistent rate regardless of what you do or how you play. The game is too much about time management and too little about fun and so I can't recommend it.

If, like me, you like the look and idea of this game keep looking as there are countless other games that do a much better job of being a good fun game.

After several attempts to just get the damn game working, I simply gave up. The Uplay kept crashing every time I tried to log in, and even with my level of patience, I just couldn't deal with it anymore. Heroes of Migh and Magic were some of the first video games I ever played and was actually good at, and up until the third game I was never disappointed. The fifth one was alright too, feeling kind of like Heroes meets Warcraft in terms of style. The fourth one... well, in my opinion, that one shouldn't exist, but you could tell that they were at least trying to evolve the game.
I've seen a lot of negative reviews about the sixth one on here, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway, because some of the best games I've ever played were often met with negativity by others. Well, seeing as I can't even get it up and running, I'll have to wait until I get my hands on a physical copy before I can properly praise or slam it :/

I don't understand all of the negative reviews of this game. It isn't on par with, say, MM3 but it is a very fun and addictive game as well with it's own unique charm. The graphics are great, the gameplay is tweaked but maintains the classic Heroes vibe. All the DLC is a bit of a turn off and the lack of custom map making is a step backwards but overall it is a good addition to the universe.

A lot of people complain about Uplay but I have not experienced any of these problems. Perhaps the complaints are outdated? I can play online without issue, Uplay functions perfectly. I have had one instance of a game crash but that was after hours of play and enabling the daily save feature makes it so that the odd crash really isn't much of an issue.

I love this game and most of the previous ones. The only reason I would not recomend this game to anyone is that in its current state its simply unplayable. Crashes, black screen during combat... It doesn't seem that anyone is looking into fixing it now that the next version is released.
Stay away

DO NOT BUY GAME.


It uses U-play, a 3rd party DRM, which causes a mssive amount of game breaking glitches. The game damn near doesnt function. Lots of crashes, U-play will often delete your saved game, etc etc the list of crap never ends.

Just do not bother. Save your money. There are better games out there done by companies that actually give a shi-t about their customers.

This was the nail in the coffin for me.

I'm done with Ubisoft, and their years of insane bahavior / dissrespect towards their loyal fans.

Myself and about thirty of my friends have begun boycotting Ubisoft do to this.

Absolute ♥♥♥♥ if you can't even play it. Paying good money for a game you expect to work, but doesn't because uPlay won't start. A known issue apparently for years, yet not advertised as sold on Steam, therefore Steam are deliberately permitting the sale of goods that are not capable of working via other software that is a requirement. Do not waste your money.
