I plan to play this again as well … maybe it is worth a revisit article … or perhaps not. We'll see

AFA HoMM5, it was quite fun once you got used to the 3D effect and getting lost in walls and stuff. I liked it as well.
Me too. I didn't buy HOMM 4 when it was first released, but bought the game later with all of the expanisions. I finished HOMM4 and a few of the expansions, but was burnt out to finish the last one. Still not that bad a game. I can't even remember HOMM 3 and know I didn't even finish that one. It made no lasting impressions on me at all, but I remember 4 very well and had a blast playing it.

As for 5 I liked that one as well, but not as much as the 4th one. I didn't finish it. I made it as far as the dark elf campaign before I said "ehhh, time to get another game."

Despite all my rage.
I'm still just a rat in a cage.

Well, all in all, it was a decent enough game.

I think what drove my personal disappointment was the legacy of Arx Fatalis. They made an average "shooter" action RPG - when I was originally hoping for something closer to Arx.

It was also rather short and as amusing as the action sequences were, they got old near the end - which is somewhat telling of the depth given the limited length.

However, even with all the baggage and expectations, I'd say it was a fun if middling game - but being the RPG freak that I am, I liked those aspects enough to appreciate it more than what it probably deserved.

I was certainly entertained during the ~8 hours or so it lasted.

If it was called 'Johnny KiXalot' and was the freshman effort by 'Craptacular Games' … perhaps it would have been treated differently than a game with 'Might & Magic' made by the Arx people.
