Summary: This is certainly the worst heroes game.It is insanely difficult and the vulnerability of your hero makes the game irritating as you can lose an easy battle simply because your hero died.The only really good thing about heroes 4 is its soundtrack.Oh okay it has good story too but how can you enjoy it when you are losing all the time?
Summary: Am probably should give this game big plus for brave attempt to create something new original. This game have unique style and interesting RPG feeling. Unless its all broken to point that am not enjoy playing it as previously HoMM3. What is most important in strategy are statistics, informations and all that is like secondary to useless things.
Summary: Definately the best game in the series. Heroes 4 brings you the opportunity to take your hero into the battle, for good this time, in a wonderful 3D atmosphere, with amazing music and beautiful maps. Its colour and sceneries remind me of old fantasy tales and medieval movies, like a Heroes game should. The combat system is almost flawless, the map editor gives you a wide array of Definately the best game in the series.
Summary: I, myself, am a big fan of well thought through turn-based strategy games. When I started to play this game, most of my friend were saying "oh, Heroes 3 is so much better". However, I thought that it would be wise to try the game before saying that it is not worth any of my time. So I did. The first feeling was that the gameplay was OK. Nothing extremely bad for a 2002 game. The way the I, myself, am a big fan of well thought through turn-based strategy games.
Summary: This game is a solid title, not the best but one that can be played with joy. I would say the most detracting thing is chopping animations and generally boxy and bland strategic map. On the other side, interface, music and drawn portraits are top-notch. Gameplay improvements are in my opinion, real improvements. It feels like Master of Magic in some aspects. All in all, a solid 7/10 This game is a solid title, not the best but one that can be played with joy.
Summary: I understand those who say this game isn't a good HoMM (too much changes, I guess), although I disagree this opinion, but you cannot refuse Heroes IV is a wonderful game. The gameplay is addictive, the graphics are beautiful and the soundtrack is gorgeous. HoMM IV probably is the game I have played for most time. And this means hundreds of hours thinking "just one turn more".
Summary: Have played HHM III and IV and purchased this for the game add-on packs. They are great and have had endless fun using the game editor to make new games. The game even worked in windows 7, I just told it to play as windows xp program. Love it! Now if 3DO would have just fixed HHM V !!
