"One of the best turn-based strategy game, Heroes of Might And Magic reveals a world with treasures, mines, all kinds of creatures, castles and, of course, heroes which will fight for our cause if we have the gold to pay them. Instead of reading a quick review, let's play a scenario and discover this world along the way."

"I chose a small map, the objective being to eliminate all enemies. A player must own at least one city. So, in order to win, we'll have to capture all enemy cities."

"The wind blows and a nice music is playing. Our hero, Aine, is sitting at the city's gate, waiting for orders. We have some resources, listed at the bottom of the screen: wood, mercury, ore, sulfur, crystals, gems and gold. These are necesary to build city improvements, buy creatures, hire heroes and others. Clicking twice on the city (first time to select it) we enter it."

"The real fun is when you are playing against humans. You can do that with a TCP/IP network, or on the same computer, being a turn-based game. The ideal game to play at work with other 5 colleagues :-) (you a take a 5 minute break every half an hour to move your heroes). Just make sure that the $29.95 bill from Loki games doesn't appear on the company credit card :-) ( you can also download a demo on the game home page )"
