With the release of the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V drawing near more previews are beginning to appear. Celestial Heavens' preview takes an in-depth look at the game from the perspective of a fan of the HoMM series. Celestial Heavens calls HoMM V "the best Heroes game ever."
Let me tell you, even on normal difficulty level this is a game where you will need to hire troops. You will NOT succeed with # III tactics: upgrading Archers to Marksmen or Gremlins to Master Gremlins and clear most mines and stuff with 2 dozens of Marksmen or a couple dozens MGs and some bodyguards. The monster stacks are too massive for that and all monsters of all levels (with few exceptions) may prove difficult to deal with and inflict the dreaded LOSSES. Thatís why you need to hire. You MUST put money into creatures, otherwise you are dead. Which is great. There are only three difficulty levels and the highest will still let you start with 10000 gold and assorted resources, which might make people frown, who are used to play maps on impossible difficulty, but since neutral stacks grow with difficulty level there will come the point when you will regret spending that 2000 Gold chest on experience instead saving the money.Freeverse Software is currently working on the Mac version of HoMM V.
