HoMM 5: Hammers of Fate - Review @ IGN

by Kalia, 2006-12-20 03:14:02

IGN has posted a review of Heroes of Might & Magic V: Hammers of Fate. Sporting a "passable" 6.5/10.00 score, the reviewer said: 

Hammers of Fate offers no real surprises in the areas of graphics or sound. The visuals are still fairly sharp and the new Dwarf designs and animations fit nicely with the overall art style of the game. We particularly like the upgraded Berserker armor and the freaky flaming fists of the Warlords. The Dwarven city is similarly well executed with plenty of style and impact. Unfortunately, the game still relies on poorly staged, unremarkable cutscenes run through the engine.

Closing Comments
Serious fans of Heroes of Might & Magic aren't likely to be discouraged by the lack of new content or the thirty-dollar price tag. With only one new faction and a smattering of new gameplay options, Hammers of Fate feels more like a small-scale mission pack than a full-fledged expansion. You'll get a good fifteen to twenty hours out of the campaign but it's not any better than the user-created content that's already available for free.
