    This game, pretty much started it all...

    I've been a fan of the early Heroes of Might and Magic series, and this game is what started it all for me. One could argue that King's Bounty was the first. Yeah, it sure was, but in HoMM the fact you can be different c... Read Full Review

    Even though it's a shame, some games just don't stand the test of time very well.

    The Heroes Of Might & Magic series has gone on to become one of the most loved series of games ever. While it doesn't have a fanbase the size of some other games out there (cough......Warcraft......cough), the many fans ... Read Full Review

    The "one more turn syndrome" at his best

    This is the game that probably got me in strategy gaming. The "One more turn" Syndrome hit me hard on this one. "One more turn so I can get my Pheonix". "One more turn, just enough to get that unit of my territorry". "ON... Read Full Review

    Average, but enjoyable

    Here is one of the first turn based games I played, and actually enjoyed it. Heroes of Might and Magic captivated me mainly because it was an action game with strategy and it was simple. It is nothing fancy or showy. ... Read Full Review

    The beginning of the series, a solid game with erratic difficulty. For the nostalgic or those that like difficult games

    3DO have created a popular series and to do that, the basics have to be right from the start. Graphics may not be amazing but they are good enough, cartoony and somewhat adorable. No voices and sound effects are fairly s... Read Full Review

    Classic Turn Based Game. Easy to learn, Hard to walk away from.

    Finding older games is easy these days in bargain bins in most electronic stores. I found this game for a very good price. The story line is basic. Build Explore & Hunt down your opponents. After a few maps, I go... Read Full Review

    HOMM, the best multiplayer game I've ever played.

    That's right, it's the best multiplayer game I've ever played. I love it. Especially when you're playing with a friend who you've known for a long time. I played it all summer and never got bored of it. So basically this... Read Full Review

    The humble beginning of a legendary strategy series.

    Turn based strategy games were nothing new in 1995, but above average ones were not very common. Heroes of Might and Magic, the spiritual successor to King's Bounty, and spin-off to the Might and Magic role playing serie... Read Full Review
