Heroes of Might & Magic V is a tactical turn-based strategy and a fifth part of the series and the first installment to utilize the 3D graphics.


The gameplay centers around The Heroes who are powerful leaders helping different fractions, forming guilds and fighting alongside with weaker characters against The Heroes of the opposing division.
The player controls the growth of his character — he may distribute the experience points between the abilities on the skill tree thus gaining new ultimate powers or racial skills. The core feature to the skills in the game is that every walkthrough forms a unique mix of race, skills and development issues embodied in The Hero.
There are six fractions to the game: Haven, Inferno, Necropolis, Dungeon, Sylvan, and Academy. The title feature one DLC and one standalone add-on content. They add two more fractions to the game: Fortress and Stronghold.


The gameplay depicted in the fifth part of the IP continues the line set in the third and the fourth chapters, the narrative, however, does not share such succession. None of The Heroes were transported into the new title with the adventures set in Ashan — the world created by Asha.
The story follows a line of tragic events during the battle between Asha and Urgash in which the former suffered collisions and merged with The Moon.

Heroes of Might and Magic V reviews and comments

One of the best turn-by-turn strategy. Only failure to close the game servers. Two superb extensions the latest being in itself closer to a new game thanks to the richness of its content

Great Turn-based strategy game, good history and very epic music. Hours and hours that fly by. For me the best was the IV and the III and then goes this the V. Live the Heroes of Migth and Magic

I Come from Heroes III and personally I have not liked anything, yes it has the essence of Heroes but not the one I remembered, personally I do not recommend. Maybe The most understood people in the matter yes, there you are.

The best Part after HoMM 3! -Can I recommend. Deer newer Games HoMM 7 etc. all degrade quite heavily and are simply cluttered and too crowded. Meanwhile I also find Clash of Heroes awesome for casual gaming!

Game, in some Places quite hard so that you could bite your Teeth out but ei is possible good Game. Unfortunately, there is no Card Editor. The Original had at least one. Well, you just can't have it all

Excellent jeu de tactique, un délice a jouer encore et encore! Je conseil plus fortement l'expension Tribes of the East! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Great tactics game, a game you will want to play again et again! Don't forget to check the expension named Tribes of the East!

The recommendation depends on your expectations. Gameplay: interesting, good tactical strategy, good customization of heroes. History, cutscenes and dialogues: lol superscript lol. So bad it's funny. Verdict: If you play only for strategy, a solid 7.5/10 If you play for stories and ambiance, hoping to regain the writing quality of HOMM4, a low 3/10

Heroes of might and magic... What to say? It's a genre, they invented this style, manage a castle, a hero, troops and go to conquer a map in turn... The 5 Bah... This is the 5th;) If your graphics card is a little just do not hope to play it, it is beautiful, but greedy and not very well optimized, it does not prevent that we find at each party the pleasure to play there. To say, I bought it as a collector in boxed version, and pretending that I am I bought it on steam so that it is compatible with the addons of avail., is that it must be well;)
Probably the worst installment in the series. How could they make a game that managed to destroy everything what was left after the disaster of HoMM4. The aesthetics and the music are lacking. There's zero attention to detail in the visual style. One of the most lazy-ass writings I have ever seen in games. And of course half-hearted voice-acting and ridiculous ‘cutscenes.’

All in all, I regret buying and replaying this. Now I remember why it was so painful 10 years ago.
