Average User Score: 6.0Oct 17, 2011If you are a Heroes fan like myself, Heroes 6 is a definite must-get. The game takes a very bold step in attempting to innovate and reinvent the game. For most parts of it, they've managed to get it right. Here are some of the things I liked and disliked about the game.
+ Decent graphics that won't run circles around less established and Video Cards
+ The Hero Skill Tree now allows users to customize their Heroes in so many different ways
+ Ubisoft actually re-uses and re-masters some music tracks from the previous incarnations of HOMM (as old as HOMM 2). Nostalgic HOMM music fans will be in for a pleasant treat.
+ In-game dialogue is generally well done. Some conversations are actually rather funny
+ There's only now 4 resources - Gold, Wood, Ore and Crystal. This saves you the trouble of mindlessly hunting for the resources you desperately need while stocking up on the "useless" ones.
+ Compelling storyline
+ The CONFLUX allows players from all around the world to interact with each other by leaving tips and advice for each other at certain points of the game.
- No town screen! That's right. It's kinda like a "town window" now.
- If you start a game while connected to the CONFLUX, you won't be able to load its subsequent save games UNLESS you are logged in.
- Disconnecting from the CONFLUX while in-game will automatically drag you (kicking and screaming) back to the main menu, regardless of what you're doing. So if you're on the battlefield and on verge of a very hard fought victory, and your internet connection drops, you are going to get. so. mad.
- No Dungeon faction T_T
That's my two-cents' worth in a nutshell. To summarize: If you're an avid Heroes fan like myself, you won't do yourself wrong by buying this game. If you're new to the HOMM world and are looking for a decent TBS game to play, you might wanna wait it out for half a year for the price to drop.… Expand
