  1. All of which amounts to new levels, harder difficulty, and not much else. This is pretty much the template for second expansion packs these days, so Tribes of the East is at least somewhat trendy. Nevertheless, you can't praise this mediocre add-on for fitting in with the cool kids. Nival should have finished the Heroes V series on a higher note than this.
  2. So this is pretty much the same game again, with a few new missions and multiplayer maps, a couple of new mechanics and a new faction. After a year and a half. If this is the best the world has to throw at me, I might just retire again.

    Ultimately, Tribes of the East manages to gobble time as effectively as any good Heroes installment; it's an impressive final outing for Heroes V -- and another strong showing from Nival.
  4. A solid follow-up to an already engaging franchise. Players with a lot of time invested in Heroes of Might and Magic V are going to appreciate the engine tweaks and thoroughly enjoy giving it a go with the Orcs.

    It does nothing to expand upon the base game and therefore make itself worthy of notice, except for those of you with a burning desire to see how a sub-par fantasy story turns out who can't be bothered to look it up on Wikipedia. [Christmas 2007, p.88]

It elevates the original games quality to much higher standarts and with this expansion the game becomes a better game than the most fans' favourite HOMM3. An epic game all in all. Full Review »

    The last great title of the Heroes of Might & Magic series.

In my opinion, this stand-alone expansion put the game on par with Heroes II and III, the best in the series.
    Heroes VI and VII failed miserably, so if you want to enjoy the last epic title of the series (and the only one worth playing in 3d), then go ahead and buy this one!
