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.

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.

I don't understand why so many negative coments.
Played over 120 hours and I got 2 or 3 disconnects. Every time because i had internet issues.
Not a maniac with Heroes series. I play only single player campaigns.
Just finished the third campaign (Sanctuary) and probably I will finish the whole 6 campaigns and buy the DLC's as well.

Like most of the Negative feedback already posted I would have to agree not to buy it. I really enjoy playing the game and as some say probably could be the best so far. BUT.... I cant play the game anymore. Had to uninstall the game due to windows issues and when I finally got it resolved I went back to reinstall and continue. I saved to cloud all the time so no issue continuing. Or so I thought. I cant install the game because Steam cant connect to the Conflux servers. They are down ...well im not sure if they have been up at all since I started trying to reinstall. So save money and frayed nerves. Also save money on broken keyboards and mice due to frustration of not being able to get anywhere with Ubisoft/Uplay customer "support". Doesnt exist.

Honestly the only bad thing about this game is stupid Conflux/Uplay system that randomly disconnects.
Imagine when you fight a really big battle with PC that you have doing for 20 mins or so and suddenly you get DC-ed and return to Main Menu cause that happens...alot
Not to mention that somehow my CDkey is registred to different Uplay account and guys from Ubisoft arent really helpful

Game itself is 7 or 8/10. It has some good ideas. Campaigns are ok. Battles are ok.

Reason I strongly disencourage you from buying this game is Uplay/Conflux and Ubisoft policy.
I wasted 15+ hours dealing with Uplay, bugs and crushes.

I lost all my clouded saves. Support haven't responded yet. So I replayed half of Campain.
I met game breaking bug with stucked enemy hero. Bug known for year on forum. I had to replay map 3 times to avoid this event.
Screen go black sometimes when you enter city or battle or game just crush without anything. This occurs every 1-2 hours.

Every time I need to reload the game I see unskipable logo of company I will avoid. GJ Ubisoft.

I've read reviews where the game is buggy, where the design is a little janky, where the balance is a little off. I'm not entirely sure about that, because the game requires an Always On connection to some manner of server called Conflux. And even though my connection with the internet remains stable (as far as I can tell--everything else works), I repeatedly lose connection with Conflux.

I just wanna play the ♥♥♥♥in' game. Which, from what little I played, is a step in the wrong direction from its predecesors.
