First of all this game is awesome, can be played with and without mods, but preferable is with them. This game could achieve many things and could be said a next best game after the HoMM 3, as I like to create Hero which can be an outstanding character. This game allows this, and give many ways of achieving victory and playing is almost endless not like in HoMM 3 (Still game is perfect for playing with friends and campaign also nice :) ) where after wining game is over and here you can still go. For me this game is connecting HoMM 3 and Civilizations which give a birth to a good child but weak. Why is that? First of all it have a very good foundation to be the best but still need much more time to be "trained" and shows the results of being completed.
What it needs to be done to be remembered and still be playable like HoMM?
-Perfomance ! (This game on big maps takes time, not saying about time how long is to achieve the victory, but the time between turns! After 100-150 turns time to wait is about 1-2 min to get my turn. My computer isn't high-tech and is tweaked so much to hold this game on proper efficiency (Also everything changed for lowest settings to get the best results) as for me this game doesn't need much of graphics, I like this game because of mechanics and creativity. Graphics are only a nice addition.
-Multiplayer like in HoMM3 or Worms then this game will rock much more, trying to take your friends towns or figthing againts friends forces on battleground, that would awesome.
If you have a good computer then this game is one of the best, it's worth its money and even if this is still singleplayer you can have a nice package of fun for many months.
