The original Heroes III have been formed already in 1999 in New World Computing under conductor Jon Van Caneghem. Since then, the game has been changing, growing, improving on several occasions and simply becoming better than what we first saw for almost sixteen years on our monitors.
No additional campaigns, scenarios, and maps, with expansions we’ve got legendary automated map generators and little enhancements in non-epochal interfaces. An advanced visual component will not fit each one properly. Namely, this remaster is primarily intended for playing on iOS and Android so it does not look impressive but weird about the big monitor.
Units and heroes look like those you’re used to, but not enough, and not always, just sometimes and mostly close to you. The interior of the city is somewhat empty and lifeless, and portraits of heroes move from similar to absolutely disguised.
Heroes are still a phenomenal game that will float on the surface, especially if you are the first time you are playing with this series and you are not accustomed to its classic visual identity. The good thing about Hero 3 is that it continues on the continuity of previous games in the series, but puts you in front of a new chapter and a new continent.
The campaign covers seven scenarios with three maps, mechanics combines the strategy, tactics and RPG elements in an ideal way. Guide the heroes with statistics, skills, and equipment on a map of the world. Each of them is actually a lord who affects up to seven loaves of units he or she is carrying, passive attributes and skills, or active (magic).
Fighting is also taking place in a tactical battlefield with a hexagonal network. There are eight factions with a specific theme and a city in which you create specific structures and recall seven specific types of units. Each faction has two classes of heroes, meaning sixteen archetypes that reflect their city and their belonging to the domain of power or magic.
In addition to the magnificent mechanics, the third Hero is characterized by top-notch, now cult, music. The luck in the accident is that no part of this game has gone to remaster and improves so it is a pleasure to listen. Heroes of Might & Magic III is in a disgusting way. The greatest value of this title is that it will reveal the World Hero to some new players.
