Summary: Most of the bugs have been fixed but I get occasional hang when playing on line. You can play local but you don't get all the features. Conflux will occasionally go down due to server problems or maintenance. Game play still good like all HOMM in my opinion, when it works.
Summary: All weaknesses from old games are solved. Everything what I love on Heroes series is retained. Very long game play time is advantage. Small disadvantage is that game is falling sometime if a grifin is attacking your forces. It can by only specific hardware setup issue.
Summary: I use to play HoMM 3 when I was younger and had to buy this one for old memories from when I was a child. this game reminds me a lot of the third one as well. I liked playing through the story lines but I mainly played the hot seat mode with a friend.
