    The graphics are lame, the gameplay is worse, and there are no cheats or codes(that i know of)to make this bad game even alitle bit better. The cheats would turn this 3 game into maybe a 5. If anyone doe's have cheas/codes please email me at caijaanen@aol.com. [Ed: ---->See right column]

    Not much of an RPG... Dusnt make much difference which starting character you use except for a change in difficulty, and if different villains used different tactics in battle there would have been some nicer variety, but it's basically just a hack and slash.

    This game is the biggest waste of money ever. Its incredibly simple with nothing going for it. Plus, it is an EXACT replica of the game 'Kings Bounty' released in the 80's, with passably better graphics.

    This is the EXACT same game that I played in the '80s, with graphics from the '90s. On my PS2!!! 'Nuff said.

    Fans of the earlier Heroes Of Might & Magic PC games, however, will be shocked at how dumbed-down their beloved strategy game has become on the PS2.

    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.
  3. 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.
