  1. Hammers of Fate adds a lot of material for HoMM5. But to warrant a better mark, it would have to actually deal with the basic weaknesses of the game. As it is, despite the Caravan's efforts to streamline one aspect, it just doesn't.

In fact, it adds enough functionality and playability that it certainly warrants the purchase. The only downside is that the functionality that you gain from this game is entirely available in the next expansion set, Tribes of the East, which means that literally the only reason to buy this game is for its single player campaign because everything else is readily available (and then some) in the expansion. With that said, the single player campaign is better than in Heroes 5- each one in the series gets gradually better and better. So yes, this is a great expansion, but everything in it is available in the next game too. Full Review »
