About

Might & Magic: Heroes VI is a turn-based strategy game developed by Black Hole Entertainment. It is the direct continuation of the Might & Magic game series.

Plot

The game takes place 400 years before the events of Heroes of Might and Magic V.

Michael, a powerful archangel was revived. He sets out to capture Ashan covering it up as preparation to a demon invasion. The Archangel kills off his old enemies as he goes on, yet the human dynasty of Griffons is highly underestimated. A war breaks out, and humans win.

15 years after the war, the fifth children that will be the protagonists of Might & Magic: Heroes VI are born. The Duke is killed, and the children set out on a quest to find out who possessed the mind of the killer.

Gameplay

The game's formula does not deteriorate much from the previous installments of the series. It still is a hero-oriented turn-based game. The players can join a faction, each of which has several heroes, different units that can be upgraded.

The players can buy property in the game. Every property will become a part of the player's own kingdom. Not only it is used for overviewing your possessions, but the kingdom is also known as the part of the map that the player has under their control. It is essential to keep an eye out on the wellbeing of your citizens, as each property produces items for your army and resources for progressing further into the game.

Might & Magic: Heroes VI reviews and comments

Nice to look at, beautiful cutscenes, solid concept ... But ... the story is very infantile and, doenst matter if camaign or free play, it starts to get boring after 30 minutes.

If the Game doesn't work because of Black Charge Screen, search this File ProfileData. That's in the Documents! C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Might & Magic Heroes VI/YourName-/ProfileData (open with the editor) Find the Line, Fullscreen and change it to Windscreen2> Windowed Then it works! And in the Game, you can change to Full Screen again in Options. Just have To change that line every Time you start ... But this is how annoying it is.

At first I thought that you would have to fear the Uplay inventors vigorously in the Face. Then I realized that the Uplay inventors were already furrowed in The face and a really disgusting one with Chunks, otherwise you wouldn't upset your Customers with this Application. In a nutshell: Heroes VI including all DLC's purchased on Ubisoft weekend. The 10GB that includes the Game, loaded, launched, Uplay launcher crashed, searched for a Solution about 2 Hours-to no Avail. Thank you Pissnelken!

After all this Time, the Game is still full of Bugs that make it unplayable, repeatedly crashes the Game at city Sieges and NEITHER Manufacturers nor UBISOFT find it worth the Effort to bring a Patch for it. For this, too-the Player has already paid for the Game >:( But the Main Thing you have to log in to the sch ... uplay if you want to play solo! This was certainly the last Ubisoft game I bought! Selling Crap and Buying shoppers is probably the Motto There (is the remaining not the only Ubi product where it is) but no longer with us. Ubisoft-NO THANK YOU, that's enough now!

I've been playing the Series since the third Part and have always had a lot of Fun exploring and this "Oh, one Round still" feeling is very big. Accordingly, I was looking forward to the 6th Part. But the Disappointment was then very great. Either I've become too stupid, or I'm just too old, or I don't know. In any Case, I felt the Level Of difficulty was incredibly high, so I only saw the first Map area until my Troops were mercilessly slaughtered in the second Area. No Idea how to do that. I tried again later with the same Result. No Idea what tricks you have to use to build up a good Army, I didn't discover them. Therefore, I would not consciously recommend the Game. (Shouldn't mean it's "unplayable," of course. But I would say: Play the Predecessor, at least the first few Hours you have hardly any Problems)
