Heroes IV is the first game in the heroes of might and magic series I play. And I find it very well-made and fun!
Otherwise heroes IV of might and magic are very fun, challenging, strategic, exciting and has many ways to play. Sadly some heroes' are unbalanced, magic heroes are much better than "might" ones (I think).
As I said, the game is very hard. And pretty hard to pick up for beginners. The campaign nearly always results in cheating…
The sound failures. It sounds strange and to high, it cuts through your eyes like tinnitus.
The graphics are totally OK. Some fire effects, for example, does look strange.
The gameplay are awesome, but campaign is too hard and multiplayer takes a very, very, VERY long time to play.
The controls are good. But its not excellent either.
Final score: 7.75/10
