Heroes III Complete Review, Giveaway
10:33 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Fans of this adventure series were thrilled by the news that 3DO had decided to create Heroes III Complete, a special Mac-only compilation of the original Heroes III: The Restoration of Erathia combined with two previously PC-only expansion packs. Now IMG has published a review of this title, and to celebrate its release we are conducting a giveaway as well. Here's an excerpt from the review:

The beauty of this Heroes 3 Complete pack for Mac users is obviously that, for the first time, we get access not only to all the exciting new maps from the PC expansion packs, but also to the huge number of (often excellent) user-created expansion maps available for downloading from the Web. There’s really a tremendous number of third party maps out there (try www.astralwizard.com), and many of them are very good, but a lot of them require one or the other of the expansion packs. Now we can play them all. So, you’ve still got a lot to go at even when you’ve played through all the 20 campaigns and the nearly 160 stand-alone maps provided in the Complete pack.


The effects of the expansion packs are actually cumulative across all the games: the original Restoration of Erathia maps now include Conflux towns, moat damage and a variety of new creatures and heroes. So there’s even more replay value than there was before; and Heroes 3 is a uniquely replayable game. Console yourself with this thought if you feel a little sore about having to buy the original game again just in order to get the two new expansion packs. This Complete set really does provide massively good value for money in terms of the quantity and quality of what you receive.

PC players who wanted to play all three titles would have to pay upwards of $80 to do so; 3D0 has done the Mac platform a tremendous service in this regard, and that's good news indeed.


Inside Mac Games and 3DO are giving away three copies of Heroes of Might and Magic III Complete. Enter today and you could win one of these copies! Winners will be picked Monday, February 26th, 2001, so enter as soon as possible. Read the review for more information, our original Heroes III review for details on what this game is all about, and be sure to enter the giveaway as well.
