The Heroes Of Might And Magic franchise began with this game. It is a 2D adventure game where you must discover and conquer new lands while using tactics to outwit other warlords. Recruit heroes, gather your forces and conquer the lands of your enemies.
Turn-based strategy and RPG game play
Heroes Of Might And Magic is the first in the series and is therefore one of the weakest. Most people download and play the game because they enjoy the other versions and wish to revisit the game’s roots. Playing the game is a little tedious because very little happens between the fights. The graphics are very poor in comparison to what people had just five years later, and the game is a little bland in parts. One of the game’s redeeming features is that you can see how the franchise first took root and where the ideas for the sequels came from. If you are looking to really commit to the franchise, then start with the first and work your way up. If you like the look of Heroes Of Might And Magic III, then you should seriously consider starting with this game and working your way up.
An old game that still has its charms
You will not be writing to your friends around the world to tell them how great this game is, but you may play it and see how the seed of an idea eventually grew into the franchise that we all know so well. The game does tell a story, and it is addictive if you can get past the old-fashioned graphics.
