For starters, if you are like me a genuine HOMM fan. Stay away from this nightmare.
I've been playing the HOMM for as long as I can remember.
And this game truly is a let down.
The story is thin and is lacking any kind of depth that would make the player intrigued to advance further into the campaign.
The selection of factions and interesting creatures are slim. Thou they've added a completely new faction. Which is on the upside, but it does not counter the negative aspects of the others.
The heroes themself have somekind of RPGish levling, which is to me just confusing.
Balance of the game is all roody poo, I can't put my finger on it. And neither can the devs, or so it seems.
All creatures has way too many perks and active effects it's all just a big mess.
It's like the devs have gone tryhard on this game, making it as complicated and frustrating as possible.
Oh, and you need to be online at all time during your session and connected to Ubisoft's Conflux service. If you happen to go offline while playing, all your progress is lost. Neat, right?
If you happen to be new to the HOMM series you might actually like this game, since it has some good points as well.
I'm not the one to tell them, there's plenty of positive rewievs for that.
But as an old HOMM player, I'd suggest you stick with either HOMM 3 or 5.
