Heroes of Might and Magic V Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks recently posted a review of Heroes of Might and Magic V, the latest title in the long running turn-based strategy game series. The game offers a new story-line, new units, and the addition of 3D graphics. Applelinks gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

There are similar decisions to be made in battles, starting with where you place your troops on the battlefield. If your hero has the tactics skill, then you have more room. Even if you don't, you'll have to use the battlefield to your advantage. If you place your archers behind other troops, then you'll be able to shoot your enemy but they won't be able to shoot you. If you place a troop that can't fly behind a pile of rocks, then they will need room to maneuver to get to the enemy but will be protected from the enemy's ground troops, as well. Some of your troops can use spells just as your heroes can in addition to attacking the enemy directly, so you have to decide when it's right to use them. Fortunately, you can see how many of the enemy will die before you order any of your troops to attack so you can pick the best course of action before you make it.

By making the best decisions and having a bit of luck on your side, you'll emerge victorious and defeat all of your enemies with a hero who will make the enemies tremble. HoMMV is a combination adventure/battle/role playing/resource management game with fantastic graphics and songs. That is why I've played this series ever since HoMMIII, and why HoMMV doesn't dampen my enthusiasm for the series.
