Heroes of Might and Magic is about as venerable as series get nowadays. Now, 15 years after the original Windows release, Might and Magic Heroes VI brings the franchise back to the PC. A faithful followup to one of the original strategy RPGs, Heroes...

Before we start, let me state that this game is Heroes of Might and Magic VI, and not a new series of which we’ve all somehow missed the first five games. I don’t know why the title has been rearranged. It seems entirely pointless and arbitrary. Also,...

Might and Magic Heroes VI may have some issues with battlefield tactics in the late game and its story, but the strategy remains a blast nonetheless. Near infinite hours of gameplay await, and anyone looking for a well-made and addictive turn-based...

Well here we are, at the sixth iteration of the turn based strategy RPG Heroes of Might & Magic (HoMM). This time, Black Hole Entertainment and Ubisoft have decided to make the series a bit more accessible, while still keeping the same aesthetic as...

Might & Magic Heroes VI is a solid but unremarkable addition to a classic franchise - just about a return to form, but nothing more than that and coated in unnecessary out-of-game frippery....

The Might and Magic series' long-running strategy-RPG gameplay is still a lot of fun. Yet this fun finds itself beset by a number of glitches, a lack of real strategy, and Ubisoft's insulting online strategy. Before starting my review of Might and...

Pros: Core gameplay is as addictive as ever; updates enhance the experience and streamline some of the more complex aspects; tons of content and play options

Cons: Lots of little visual bugs and glitches; constant internet connection requirement is a miserable beast; baby-punching difficulty

It's been a long wait, but at last, Might & Magic: Heroes VI is with us. Fans of the series—which is celebrating its 25th year—will be thrilled to know that developer Black Hole Entertainment has kept to the classic gameplay while adding just enough...

There's a couple of schools of thought as to how you work out the best person to review a game. Some say you should get fans, people who know that series back to front, have played it all and have many even once or twice pretended to be a game character...

Heroes of Might and Magic, or HOMM, has a long history. Originally spun off from the Might and Magic series by New World Computing, it’s since been developed by 3DO and Nival Interactive – who developed HOMM5, released in 2006. The franchise, owned by...

Might and Magic: Heroes 6 (HOMM), is the most recent in a critically acclaimed dynasty of turn based strategy games with an initial idea derived from another New World Computing game, Kings Bounty. The preview code for this latest entrant in the series...

International Review By Spieletest on 83

Eigentlich hat sich ja nichts geändert, daher konnte und wollte Ubisoft wohl nur mit den neuen Kampagnen punkten. Die sind atmosphärisch gut gelungen und nötigen einen das ein oder andere Mal zum Neustart der Karte, weil man einfach zu viel Zeit mit...

International Review By Spieletest on 84

Bis auf den Umstand der Fensterburgen, die einem leider schon direkt zum Start der ersten Partie den Gedanken „Verdammt! Fehlkauf?“ in den Kopf schießen lassen, eine sehr würdige Fortsetzung der seit Heroes of Might and Magic 3 etablierten...

International Review By 3dnews.ru on 78

Стоит сразу оговорить, что радикальных изменений в механике игры ждать не стоит. Практически все основные пункты, по которым были нарекания (вроде обозначенных выше), остались на месте — цель править их явно не ставилась. Зато сразу видна большая работа...

Die durchaus komplexe Hintergrundgeschichte wurde leider nicht sonderlich stilvoll inszeniert. Hier ein paar vertonte Dialoge, dort eine Zwischensequenz in der Spielegrafik - das war's. Apropos Grafik : Die wirkt betagter denn je. Ein paar aufgefrischte...

Немалая часть армии поклонников серии Heroes of Might & Magic проживает на постсоветском пространстве — этому факту во многом обязана российская студия Nival Interactive, которая в 2006 году выпустила пятую часть HoMM. С продолжением нас впервые...

Wer Spielzüge in Ruhe planen, Taktiken ausprobieren und sich lange in eine Spielwelt vertiefen möchte, ist in „Might & Magic Heroes VI“ genau richtig. Freunde von actionorientierter Kost hingegen dürften mit dem gemächlichen Spielprinzip dieses breit...
