All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Alrighty, here we go.

This game is good. Not the great that is HoMM III, but not the ass that was HoMM IV. Below you will find the pros and the cons so far.

Pros
-Solid strategy action.
-Pretty good looking graphics.
-The scenarios they have are interesting and engaging.
-Plays like Heroes 3, with not limitations put on building like they did in 4.

Cons
-No map editor or random map generator. They will be putting this in the patch, so it's not a huge deal at the moment since there are a good number of maps.
-A little buggy. I have had it freeze twice on me, but take into consideration I have played for quite a number of hours so far.
-Necropolis troops suck my cock. Horribly. Like...seriously bad.

Those are the major pros and cons. If you liked Heroes 3, pick up Heroes V.

"Necropolis troops suck my cock."

Aaaahahahahah. You pervert.

Anyway, I've been playing HoMM3 recently. Gonna play MM4 and 5 a bit later tonight, maybe. I think HoMM5 looks interesting but it's out of my affordabation levales.

Hey, I liked IV! Mostly I liked it because of something V lacks, which is the ability to use your hero like a stack, and being able to have more than one hero in an army.

Still, this game is very much like III with updated graphics. Still enjoyable, though, and Necropolis can be used well if you get good necromancy for your hero.

I don't like stack whoring much, though. This is why I prefer Lords of Magic for the most part :P

Yeah..they can be usable if you have the right skills, but overall they are just so much weaker than the others. Even their final level monsters are sucky in comparison.
