  1. The graphics are not jaw dropping, but as is the case with most strategy games, this really doesn't matter. In the end, it's the quality of the gameplay that counts.

    Heroes distills the great battle sequences from the PC version and delivers them in a fun, relatively deep game that’s good looking, moderately fast, and that doesn’t falter particularly badly in one area.
  3. Stratego meets Braveheart in this entertaining and simple game.

    No longer 2D or turn-based, HOMAM on the PS2 isn't as deep as might be expected, but it's fast, easy to learn and the battles are incredibly fun.
