Lan Game Reviews has posted a new review of the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V. The latest in the long runing turn based strategy series introduces players to the world of Haven and its warring factions. Lan Game Reviews gave HoMM V a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

So, let's discuss the single player game. Heroes is, as I may have already mentioned somewhere, a turn-based game. At the beginning of your turn, you have a hero to move around, and probably a city to manage. You can build new structures in the city, unlocking new creatures to buy, or more spells for your heroes, or more income, or something like that. Your hero can haul armies around the map until he runs out of movement points for the day. After you get done with all that, it's your opponent(s)'s turn, and they do the same kind of thing. Each turn constitutes a day, and seven turns is a new week. At the end of the week, you can buy new creatures to reinforce your armies. As the hero moves around the world map, he can capture new cities, recruit creatures at outposts, gather resources, that sort of thing. If, during your hero's movement, the hero runs into a hostile creature, hero, or city on the world map, you go to a tactical battle resolution, where you command your creatures against the opponents. This combat is fun and reasonably compelling, especially when you fight a well matched army. The game is so fiendishly strategic that you practically beg to be pitted against a wily human opponent, but we'll discuss that later.
HoMM V for Mac is in progress at Freeverse Software.
