Heroes of Might and Magic V Reviewed

The Gamers Temple is one of the latest sites to review the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V. The continuation of the turn based strategy series introduces several new races, a fresh world to explore, and colorful 3D graphics. Gamers Temple gave HoMM V a score of 78%

From the review:

If you are a veteran HOMM player or someone new to the series, I think that there is a lot to like about this game and worth considering it. There have been many changes since Ubisoft purchased the Might and Magic rights from 3DO. First and foremost, it is a visually stunning game. You really feel that you are part of a three-dimensional world. The detail, the colors, the animation and the entire world are light years ahead of anything that we have been used to in the previous Heroes series.

For those of you new to the series, HOMM V is a turn-based, role playing game that is filled with, well, might and magic. You are better off to be proficient at both. You begin the game with a hero and a few monsters for support. You try and find a city, beat up on the monsters there, and claim it for your own. You spend the next several turns building up your city. As you build more buildings you gain the ability to create new and more powerful monsters. Your hero learns spells which come in handy as you explore the land. City development is very important and requires your attention early on.

Freeverse Software is hard at work on bringing HoMM V to the Mac during the Christmas season.
