HoMM 5: Hammers of Fate - Review @ GameSpy
Noting that several of the inprovements included in Hammers of Fate are available as separate downloads or patches, GameSpy's review scores Nival's HoMMV expansion at 3.5 stars. Here's a clip:
The expansion introduces a new town type: the Fortress, which brings the grand total of towns to seven. Fortress is basically a different way of saying "the Dwarfs." You get all of the basic trappings of any town, plus a few unique abilities such as Rune Magic, which is the Dwarf way of casting spells and uses resources rather than mana points. Some of the Fortress units are pretty unique, though, and not just your basic short, bearded fellows toting axes.
