Heroes of Might and Magic V Reviewed
6:07 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The steady stream of PC reviews for the recently released Heroes of Might and Magic V continues with a review from Austrailia's PAL Gaming Network. HoMM V, the latest in the fantasy themed turn based strategy series, managed a score of 8.5 out of 10 from the PAL Gaming Network.

From the review:

Heroes IV incorporated a few new special abilities for faction units, such as the Griffins being able to have unlimited retaliation, vampires able to life drain and genjis to use various spells. While this remains mostly the same in Heroes V, the special abilities are a bit more rewarding and correspond perfectly with the creature type and their faction. For example units attacking the ghosts units from the undead faction can often miss since they’re actually… well, ghosts. Other cool new abilities include the inferno faction able to summon demons, phoenixes having a fire barrier around them – so when you attack them close range you lose health.

This is probably one of Heroes V’s strongest attributes, since there’s so much variety between each team that you’ll invest hours into learning one faction, only to spend equally as much time learning the basics and abilities of the other faction. Heroes V is probably one of deepest experiences out of the entire series, in terms of with so much at hand.
HoMM V for Mac is currently in progress at Freeverse Software. For the full review click the link below.
