Summary: The expansion (is actually a stand alone) adds orcs. The orcs are all about always attacking. If you slow down their rage goes down and you don't get special attacks and your units become quite weak. Some of them even join the other side if they get scared :-). Though fun to play, the new race does not offer much to the world of HOMM. The scenario is nice, but short.
Excerpt: "The Heroes of Might and Magic series has always been something of great joy for me. A die hard fan all the way!

Pros: cutscenes, presentation, sounds and music, characters
Cons: similiarities to other games, not easy for beginners, sometimes cartoonish
Summary: Wer den (Vor)Vorgänger Heroes III gespielt hat, weiß was ein richtiges Rundenbasiertes Taktikgame ist. Andererseits gab es nach langen Spielzeiten nicht mehr die Motivation die man am Anfang hatte. Meiner Ansicht nach will Heroes V das Problem beheben, neue Fraktionen auf Basis alter kreieren und dadurch mehr Abwechslung schaffen auch wenn sie bereits in umfangreichem Maße in HoMM3 vorhanden war.
