Summary: Have been a fan of the classic heroes collection from 3DO , way before becoming Ubisoft. The disk has the staple heroes 3 and the not so popular heroes 4.. although I love them both... and all their official expansions. The setup procedure is a bit on the hacky side, far from simple, and will probably impose some problems on windows 8 ( I only tried it on 7).
Summary: I got this to fill the hole I have in my Heroes collection. I previously purchased 1-3 (without the expansions for 3) and recently got 5 and 6 through Steam. I found I was missing the expansions for 3 and all of 4. Thus, this purchase was just to fill in the missing ones. The shipping was fast, and the product came as described. However, there appears to be an issue with installing on a 64-bit Windows 8 computer.
A challenging game with 5 hero classes all of which require a distinct strategy and play

Summary: This game has been around awhile, but is still a winner. The object is to win through war, magic or resource capture. Some civilizations start weak (such as the wizards) while others start with a bang (the barbarians), but later in the game the initially weakest may through building wisely end the strongest...if they survive long enough and use their resources wisely.
