Graphically this version of M&M is the best one so far, and hopefully it won’t be the last. The scenes are in glorious 3D, full of life, color and imagination. They are certain to attract the attention of newbies which this series badly needs if it’s to survive. The music is rich, with lavish orchestral movements that set the perfect tone. The voiceacting however, is not so good. It’s exceptionally bad in places. Even the text suffers from overt ornamentation that makes it difficult to understand, unless I’m just stupid.

The only really contentious aspect of Heroes of Might and Magic V is what might be seen as a dumbing down of game content by the fantasy turn-based hardcore. Thanks to its stunning presentation, this is a game that has a seductive atmosphere that will appeal to gamers with only a passing interest in the fantasy genre and is undoubtedly the most accessible turn-based strategy on the PC for years.

Diehard Heroes fans will find other things to nitpick about in this latest game in the series, but taken on its own merits, Heroes of Might and Magic V is a big, deep, lavishly produced turn-based strategy game that's got a lot of great qualities. And that's especially good news considering this series very nearly died off altogether. Skeptical Heroes fans, as well as anyone looking for a fun, long-lasting turn-based strategy game, will likely be pleasantly surprised by this one.
