Summary: I bought this for my tablet as it is a touch friendly game. I had a lot of troubles at first as the game (Heroes III) requires the DVD to be present which is difficult considering tablets don't have one. Tried emulating but had problems with Windows 8 until I found a HD mod that lets it run in full colors so it can be in a windowed mode. Great since then. Heroes IV seems to work fine but I haven't played it really.
Summary: Heroes of Might and Magic III & IV is a nice package. III is a much better playing game. IV tries too hard to be too different and falls short! Overall though a good buy for the Money! Enjoy!!
Summary: Heroes 3: I was unable to get this game to run on Windows 7, and only just on XP with a screen resolution set to 800 x 600. The game will only run smoothly for about 30 seconds at a time and then freezes for 10 seconds or so. I will update this review if I find out more. Heroes 4: plays fine on Windows 7 64-bit at a screen resolution of 1280 x 1024, and is a fresh breath of past RPG glory. Great: stories, and soundtrack.
Summary: At first I didn't notice the DVD part so I tried to install it on my old computer, a windows xp, since it's an older game. But that old computer couldn't read DVDs so I installed it on my new computer, a windows7, which does not support this old game. It installed and is playable but crashes every now and again so I have to save my game often. It was a good deal.
Summary: I always have have mixed feelings about the 'Heroes' games. They are a combination of 'Civilization' and RTSs like 'Starcraft' with a turn-based combat engine thrown in, I really enjoy the building and exploration parts. However when I get ready to start conquering, most times I find opponents who are ten times more powerful than I am. Most Herons maps require either a quick rush or a 'build combat force only' tactic.
Summary: This game is good...up to a point. Like the bots in Quake 3, the senarios are either very easy or very HARD. I've also noticed that when you start a mission, if you enter the cheat that reveals the whole map, you'll notice that the enemy always has more than TEN chests of gold and at least FOUR artifacts right within easy reach! All this while YOU have to scrounge by to surivive in the early game!
