HoMM 5 - Hammers of Fate - Review @ GameSpot

by Dhruin, 2006-11-23 13:12:25

The first review for Nival's HoMMV expansion Hammers of Fate has drawn a mixed response from GameSpot and a score of 6.4/10:

Considering the rabid fan following and the long wait, it's not a surprise that Heroes of Might and Magic V was picked apart by certain members of the hardcore fan base. It was criticized in more than a few quarters for a dull campaign, some glitches with the camera system and multiplayer, and simply for being too updated a copy of the late, great Heroes III. A series of patches helped a lot, though, and the game looked on its way to being one of the best in the history of the franchise. Now, however, the series takes another step sideways with Hammers of Fate. Like the original game on launch day, this expansion pack balances good points with bad almost every step of the way, resulting in yet another turn-based fantasy adventure that isn't all that it could be.
