Heroes III Demo Help
10:32 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In case you missed the announcement, the Heroes III: Complete demo is now
available at Macgamefiles. This demo is quite a large download, and has been well-recieved by MGF visitors, who have rated the game 4 1/2 josysticks (out of 5). One of the few
complaints that downloaders have voiced about the demo so far is the puzzling lack of a tutorial to get gamers' started with this title's unique hybrid of game types. While the game itself isn't overly complex, the lack of even a short list of instructions may frustrate gamers who just committed so much download time and drive space to this demo.

A post to
our forums from Heroes fan Rocco 'rogue27' Carello notes that he has provided
a solution by posting the Heroes III Help Manual on his fan site. If you're
new to the world of Heroes this manual will be an invaluable resource to the intricacies of this engrossing game. He has apparently cleared the posting of this material
with 3DO already, so we shouldn't have to worry about it being taken down due to
copyright issues. His site also has a short "training" area which you might
want to read through for a quick headstart on the game's combat mode tactics and strategies.

Also, if you find the demo to be too large for your bandwidth, consider
ordering the third MGF CD. This action-packed release is now available, and it includes both the Heroes III and Diablo II
demos, which each weigh in at over 100MB apiece.
