This is a fine example of branding gone horribly wrong. Like taking a brand that is a good, cozy brand that you grew up with and has always been a friend and a mark of reliable quality, a brand of trust, and doing something bizarre with it. Like if Campbells Soup went into manufacturing diesel motors. Even if the motors they make are good, they shouldn't do it. Stahp.

We all know Might and Magic as the franchise of addictive 4X games with simplistic tactical combat, classical fantasy units like orcs, knights, vampires and dragons. Build your cities and outposts, capture resources, cast magic spells and win!

Not with this game. They put Legend of Zelda, a teenaged american nerd who thinks he can draw anime, tetris and plants vs zombies into a blender, crushed what came out and stamped "Might and Magic: No Really!" on it. It's a weak puzzle game with a strange anime type veneer on the front. They threw away all the classical features of Might and Magic, leaving a poor competitor to Bejewlled in place.

Graphics: Limited but works okay in 4K. Artwork is "american anime", which doesn't work with Might & Magic. There should be none of this kind of thing.

Gameplay: Very bad. You go in expecting you're playing Might & Magic and you're playing plants vs Zombies turned 90 degrees. You dump your soldiers randomly onto the field like a game of tetris, then build them into stacks or rows so they can do something. Thematically it's weird. In terms of gameplay it just doesn't make any sense.

Technical: Not really a 3D game. Stable and functional, but very simplistic.

Might & Magic is a good solid franchise. It's not the best and far from the worst. This game might even be worth a recommendation but the failed branding and sense of betrayal, combined with being far, far below par for a game in this franchise, with such weak gameplay, leaves me with no choice but the thumbs down. There are better Might & Magic games. There are better puzzle games. This one has no place to go but down, like pizza flavoured beer, some combinations just don't work.

I played this game on my NDS and there isn't much different in both of them. PC just has more visuals and animation, while the NDS has smaller design than the PC.

Gameplay, this game is something I never experienced in other games. I don't know another game with this mechanic.

I liked this game a lot, and I'm not really crazy about puzzle games.
Unfortunately I stopped playing for a while because I kept failing on a mission, but one day I will get through it, hopefully :P

This is a great game, one of those hidden gems that not a lot of people dont know about.

It's a not too complex Puzzle-RPG (the likes of Puzzle Quest) with a great aesthetic and a pretty decent lenght (20-25h for the campaign mode).

It's the perfect game to sit back and relax for a while without having to think about dozens of mechanics, it's the classic case of 'easy to play - hard to master' gameplay.

Developers never learn that "protect the suicidal NPC" is *always* a bad game mechanic.

This game had potential, right up until the NPC decided to plunk his happy ♥♥♥ down in front of a 3 turn cannon on the turn it went off.

While I've had fun with the unique and puzzley nature of the game, I can not condone that kind of suicidal AI.

I first played through this game on Nintendo DS, so when I saw that it had come to Steam with online multiplayer and updated graphics, I knew I had to have it. I must admit to being a little disapointed that they didn't add anything new to the game, but it has been rebalanced to an extent. Still it's a great puzzle game set in the world of Might and Magic.

buy this game if you like:

+ a novel but rewarding gameplay mechanic that will delight you when you master it
+ beautiful artwork and story-telling that does not drag
+ elegantly paced campaign with excellent climactic boss fights
+ cool customization depth with a easy to understand item-system, and fun combos to pull off with your troops

I've played this game a total of 3 times in my life: on the DS (twice), once on the PC.

When I get a SSD I will preload this game into that section and never delete it.

A casualized (but in a good way) take on the HOM&M franchise, mized with tile matching puzzle elements.
Certainly won't wow you with incredible complexity, depth of mechanics, massive world to explore or an epic plot - but what is there is executed competently.
Clash Of Heroes is quite fun and enjoyable to play, even if the gameplay overall may feel a bit simplistic compared to the rest of HOM&M franchise.

OK, let's get this out of the way: You match 3 things
Just like with fruits, or gems, or candy, right?
Surprisingly enough, NO
The system is simple. If you match 3 units in a row horizontally, you build a wall. match 3 vertically, you build an attack. (let's ignore some specials for now.) The real game comes outside these "Puzzle Battles" with a decently plotted and scripted journey through the worlds of M & M (note: NOT Eminem...) collecting and selecting the tools for your army.
Once the campaign is out of the way, try some surprisingly tense turn based multiplay.

Summing up
If you like puzzles, and you like Might & Magic then WHY don't you have this already?
If you don't like either of those things then WHY are you here?
If you like one or the other WHY NOT at that price?

A good puzzle game. Very addictive. Once you start playing the multiplayer, you will be coming back for more matches. You need to complete the single player campaign to collect the artifacts (useful for both single and multiplayer matches)
Warning: not recommended for colorblind people because it's a color combination puzzle game.

All the following comments are based on my 3k hours and 6k plays on xbox and PC:
1. If you like puzzle game, this is one of the best.
2. If you like PVP, this is one of the best.
3. If you think you are smart enough, you may enjoy the PVP a lot. Otherwise, play with your friends.
4. Game is well balanced but there are still few tactics overpowered. As a newbee, don't feel shame to use those OP tactics.
5. Luck is not a factor deciding the win or lose during most plays if two players are not at the same skill level.
6. The only way to refine your skill is to lose to a good player and lose wisely.
7. After 200+ plays, if you think you learned all the tactics, please play with me. I will show you some tactics most people won't use.
8. The players pool is quite small now. That's why I have time now to write all those above:)

One of those games I wish had a Sequel.
The game mechanics are easy to pick up, yet deep enough to make for interesting games for hours on end.
Sufficient graphics with clever gameplay and a campaign that will keep you occupied for way longer than the usual 8hours most games offer these days.

I enjoyed the challenge of the battle system. Not a conventional match-3 system; it took a while to get the hang of the battle system. Campaign playthrough took 20-24 hours. I enjoyed the Campaign play-through; I don't expect to replay it.

Even after getting the hang of the battle system, the randomness inherent in the battle system resulted in fairly frequent bad luck for me and sometimes very good luck for my opponent. Some of the set battles are rough, even with leveled units.

I needed to fight side battles and do bounties to level my units up enough to complete the Campaign. Some of the set battles are rough, even with leveled units. Just gotta be persistent in retrying. The Campaign mostly doesn't punish you for death or retreating. Even when it did, I just lost a bit of my excess currency-- no big deal.

I like the art style. Very stylistic. No blood or gore. I felt that the females were clothed tastefully, certainly better than most games treat female characters these days. Kid-safe.

A great treasure for casual gamers. If you like puzzle quest series, this one is even better. It sets in Might and Magic Universe. It is a really easy game based on combining same color soldiers to attack enemy or defend yourself. Simple but fun. Different soldiers creates a variety and tactical play. This system is better than just combining gems and stuff. Every character have different special units and artifacts which adds diversity to gameplay. Graphics are smooth and easy on the eyes. Story is a little cliche but not boring. This is a casual-puzzle game. You shouldn't expect a complicated story. :) If you catch it on a sale, don't miss it.

What do you do?
  • Stack units of the same color/type.
  • Form attacks and walls.
  • Bring your opponent's HP to 0 (not always the main objective).
  • Note: Concept may be simple but game isn't at all.

What's good?
  • Challenging campaign matches.
  • Multiplayer matches.
  • Variety of units.
  • RPG elements such as equiping different artifacts (1 at time) and units, and leveling them and yourself.
  • Puzzle battles.
  • Different objectives to win depending on the stage (campaign).
  • Main and side quests.
  • Good strategy game imo.

What's bad?
  • Graphics could be better, but aren't bad at all.
  • Controls could be a bit more accurate.
  • There isn't an option to "restart" a campaign match.

Where Puzzle Quest gives you abstract "mana" for matching 3, Clash of Heroes turns your board into a tangible, tactical place. Where you match is just as important as What you match and How you match. This makes the game one of the most thoughtful, tactical puzzle games in existence.

It is a port of a Nintendo DS game, though, so be aware of minor UI nuisances and graphics that don't quite hold up under the close scrutiny of a giant 1920*1080 monitor.
