    The best Heroes game ever made, period! HOMM3:SOD in my opinion represents the pinnacle of the HOMM series. It had the best maps, enemies, heroes, and campaign of any of the HOMM games, and I've played them all. If you a... Read Full Review

    Stand-alone version of Heroes 3, plus more maps and a full new campaign.

    The only 10 score I ever gave to a game. This game has a few faults but the gameplay is so varied and fun, I have to give it a perfect score. The multiplayer is even more fun than the great single-player campaigns. Pr... Read Full Review

    Good upgrades to a great game, but I still miss something to make it perfect…

    This is a expansion to the original Heroes 3. So if you want my whole opinion on the game you should check out the review on the original as well. Here I only write about what changes with the expansion: Overall feeli... Read Full Review

    If you fancy thousands of Undead skeletons everywhere, then perhaps you would like this otherwise uninspired expansion.

    As the second expansion to the acclaimed Heroes III, Shadow of Death pales as a faithful follower. There is nothing strikingly new except for some combination artifacts that follows Armageddon's Blade campaign formats. O... Read Full Review

    A real good turn-based game, almost excelent.

    If you have already played Heroes of M&M, you will want to play this one. It has all the fantasy elements of a great story and there is a lot to do on this game. You will need all the resources of a normal strategy game ... Read Full Review

    One of the best Strategy game

    Heroes of Magic and Might III: The Shadow of Death is one of the best old time strategy game. But really hard to beat without cheating. But when you cheat, the game is less fun. The whole short of this game is move a ... Read Full Review

    Buy it now or you will make me sad and I'll start to cry.

    Although Heroes IV made some interesting gameplay improvements, Heroes III is a far better game. Gameplay: Addictive and enjoyably slow paced, at least in single player. Uncomplicated gameplay has great strategic and... Read Full Review
