Heroes of Might and Magic V Reviewed
7:02 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gamedaily recently posted a review of the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V, the latest in the long running turn based strategy series. HoMM V introduces new gameplay elements and 3D graphics. Gamedaily gave HoMM V a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

The one thing that has changed a lot is the graphics, which wonderfully compliments the game here. While Heroes of Might and Magic IV might have had a slight struggle with the transition from 2D to 3D graphics, part five finally brings it all together. The fully rotating 3D map works perfectly, and encourages players to be more careful during their explorations, since it's easy for trees to hide bits of treasure. The graphics make very good use of color, making the battle sequences endlessly amusing, especially when spells are being thrown around.

Aside from the exploration and the castle building aspects, the heart of the game of the game can be found in the strategic combat, where heroes play a big role. While heroes are still very powerful, unlike some previous games, it is no longer possible for a single hero to practically win without an army. All creatures, including the hero, has a turn on a battle queue. In earlier games, the moral system would allow creatures to attack twice successively, which sometimes meant incredible victories if larger creatures were allowed to get in a few extra moves. Now, higher moral simply means that they get a higher place in the queue, which significantly balances out gameplay.

HoMM V for Mac is in progress at Freeverse Software. To read the rest of the review follow the link listed below.
