Rated 10 out of 10 by Daroczi My favorite game. Period.
HOMM3 is the one game I can always boot up and play. Has been most of my life. Replayability is endless because of random map generation as well as many campaigns. It supports multiplayer on one system or online. With 5 difficulties, 9 playable races, hundreds of units, many gameplay altering equipment called 'artifacts', many uses of magic that can manipulate the game to your advantage, and graphics that look great (great 2d looks much better than mediocre 3d). It's turn-based, so have some friends over, relax, drink some beer and play Heroes.
If you enjoy it, try the new, constantly-updated Horn of the Abyss expansion. It seamlessly corrects old issues as well as adds tons of new content. Enjoy!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Tetaru123 Very fun game for it's Age
I used to play this game a lot when i was a teenager. Hours upon hours wasted away in front of the computer playing this. The game never failed to be enjoyable even when i was loosing. Because even whenyour down to your last castle you can still make a come back. the ratings i gave this game are based on when it first came out and should not be compared with more modern gaming.
But all in all, The game play was very in depth, it had enough variety to keep you playing and wanting to try new and different things.
this game was definantly my favorite of the series. After Ubisoft stopped making the sequals the series took a very poor down turn that over complicated a simple game that was great for when you needed to multitask entertianment into work.
