Summary: if your buying this to relive your youth playing M & M II the succession wars, as i did & run windows 7 + then be sure to set compatibility to windows 98, really easy once installed before you run the game right click the desktop icon of the game and follow the steps from troubleshoot compatibility...
Summary: You get what it says on the tin. And although when you install the games on Windows XP (not sure about 7) it states that they may not work. They work just fine. I would've given 5 stars, but the discs have the wrong labels on. Heroes 1,2 & 3 are marked as Heroes 5 etc etc.
Summary: All four disks had the wrong labels on them: labelled: HoMM I,II,III; actually contains: HoMM V Tribes of the East labelled: HoMM IV; actually contains: HoMM V labelled: HoMM V; actually contains: HoMM I,II,III labelled: HoMM V Tribes of the East; actually contains: HoMM IV I've only tried...
Summary: The game arrived in good time but one of the games ( Heroes II) won't install and it took some time to figure out that games I -III had been put on the disc marked for game IV and vice versa. Also not all of the expansions would download.
Read carefully if you want Vista and Win 7 [32/64] full support

Summary: Hello to all the fans of the series [which completely died with Heroes V - TotE]. I remember growing up playing all the scenarios in Heroes II on King difficulty and the infamous "Unleashing the Bloodthirsty " and "Fight for Power" in Heroes III... great fun... great games...
Summary: My first taste of HOMM came with Heroes II, some years ago. I wasn't expecting much; I'd bought one weekend just looking for something cheap to fill a few hours. Almost immediately I became hooked, and so did my girlfriend.
Summary: The older titles are not compatible with anything past win95. I found a website online called GOG.com that sell it compatible with windows 8 although i haven't purchased this again as I've spent my nostalgia budget this year already...
Summary: V. happy with the purchase! Took me a while to come around to ordering a game, which I loved as a child, and it arrived after two days of the purchase! Original packing, all codes included ect.
Summary: The bundle with the first 5 episodes of the best turn based strategy game ever. I recommend the collection for both hardcore fans of the game and people that never tried the game (future fans of the Heroes series).
