Rumors of the fifth part of the famous series created by a new developer under the wings of a new publisher caused quite a stir among die-hard fans of Angles, Dragons, and Titans. Luckily, the developers made sure that the old concepts which made the series successful in the first place were maintained. Heroes of Might and Magic V returns to familiar territory; the charm of the classic game is omnipresent, the gameplay is addictive, and the execution is splendid.
We return to well-known world of HoMM in control of Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, Dungeon, Sylvan, Academy, Fortress, or Stronghold. The game features a completely new scenario, arguably the most interesting in the series, along with new spells, new units and new creatures skills. The towns now look majestic and grand in full 3D, the units move and attack beautifully, huge spells convey a sense of massively destructive power, and the combat is great fun to play and crafted to perfection; even tiny details like splashing water on the shore are apparent in the game. The music adapts to the situation perfectly, and sound is filled with the little touches that show the care the developers lavished on this game, touches like shouts of joy, screams of death, and the sadistic laughter of demons.
Heroes of Might and Magic V is surely the version you’ve been waiting for a long time, and it’s finally here on GOG.com with more than 170 minutes of soundtracks, an official artbook, wallpapers, avatars, design sketches, and more. Its full price is $19.99, but pick it up for a limited time together with Assassin’s Creed: Director’s Cut Edition on a special introductory buy one, get one free sale!
