Summary: I've been a fan of this series since HOMM 3, which ranks as one of my all-time favorite games. I played 4 and 5 as well, and while they were adequate games I didn't really love them. HOMM 6 plays in a very addictive fashion, and reminds me a great deal of the type of gameplay in HOMM 3. I like it more than its two immediate predecessors, and it may end up even giving HOMM 3 a run for its money by the time I am done with it.
Summary: I am glad I waited and purchased this game for about $15. I have just over 20 hours gametime in so far. Not sure what it is but this doesn't have the same feel as previous installments. It's not bad just different. Overall I do enjoy the game although there are still some issues to mention. First there is not a cumulative patch to get you up to date. Each patch has to be separately downloaded and installed.
Summary: This is my first Amazon review after at least 10 years of being a customer, and I felt compelled to post my experiences with this product for a number of reasons, primarily as a bit of a heads-up for folks considering 'renting' this game from Ubisoft. That's right, I said 'rent', because essentially that's pretty much what you're doing - and it would seem the landlord reserves the right to deny you access to the property at will/whim, no notice given, no explanation...
Summary: The game is alright, though I prefer Heroes V but that may just be because I've played it for the past ten years. Although the game wouldn't start right away and I had to manually download some updates since it wouldn't do it through the game system - kept coming up with errors. After the manual download though, the game worked fine!
Excerpt: "...The previous game, Heroes of Might and Magic V was by far my favorite. I enjoyed being able to create your own maps and have endless hours of exploration with the many different nations. I did find it a little annoying that there wasn't a city that didn't control the elementals but nothings perfect! This game just doesn't have that same spark as previous versions. Don't get me wrong, the game isn't bad but too many things just don't work for me. For ...
Excerpt: только сейчас решил попробовать шестую часть, в общем ничем не лучше пятой. Вообще, после 3-ой началось барахло, но четвертую я еще прошел, как то тогда было интересно. но сейчас наблюдаю упадок стратегий, и лучше новой XCOM в этом году ничего не было.
Pros: графика, ролики, пошаговость
Cons: все прочее, сильно не нравится механика шестой части
Excerpt: Ого, очередные "Герои" подоспели! я думаю что теперь эта серия никогда не кончится. уже какая там по счету то? я остановился на пятых, которые не понравились, все последующие стали лучше только графически а геймплей только упрощали
