Unbelievably Great Game

I rarely rate games perfect, as all games are missing one or two components. When it comes to Heroes of Might and Magic III, it might just be the game to surpass time.

To start you off, Heroes of Might and Magic III is the title that makes the series. Fans will easily tell you, this is the one that they will return to out of the many other editions and versions of "Heroes."

Unlike most people who might be into the series, I was recommended this game almost two decades after "Heroes" became popular. Any game that is still enjoyable after nearly two decades passed... it just has to be that great. I have to say, I was not disappointed with the purchase.

For such a small sized game, this game offers hundreds of hours of game-play. There are dozens of heroes, many campaigns with amazing scripts and plots, various races. There are also randomly generated maps possible, customized to your own liking. Each race has their own unique heroes, units, and method of victory.

As you grab key resources, and potentially wage war for other key resources, do you expand? Perhaps expanding too early and capturing neutral castles will only lead to your demise. Develop your own style. Select your favorite race, heroes, magic, and units... and prepare for the inevitable war ahead.

Those who are into myths, lore, role-playing games, this game must not be overlooked. Do so, and it will be your loss entirely. Easily one of the best games I've ever played and will always play. A true timeless title.
