HAVEN - units are mostly doine nicely and the castle looks good. The biggest gripe is the focus on order and not actual goodness.
the Angel is not exactly as I wanted it, but it's not bad.
The Paladin is a terrible mergining of a crusaider and champion nd looks like hte worst lvl6 unit. HEAl for a special abiltiy? Even if it was mass cure that heals all friendly units nad removes all negative spell effects it would still be a bad skill for a lvl 6 unit....
SYLVAN - more akin to what I would like, more elves That I like ,as I do the deneroids.. But no Phoenix...
INFERNO - like it. Can say nothing bad about it.
NECROPOLIS - same thing..
ACADEMY - I'm personalyl not a fan of the orientalness of this town but icna live with it. the dissapointing fact that there are no dwarves and that the mages look more lile some fat sultans is what kills it for me..
DUNGEON - dark elve.ok, I have no gripe with it, but it must be the realisticly speaking the worst castle of all. The hulking minotaurs only lvl 3? Teh blood furys are supposed to be uber-fast, uber-agile MELEE fighters? with no armor and HIGH HEELS????? What's with the scace clothing Nival? Do you think every fan out there is a ***** 10 year old?? Ever heard of clothing that fits the purpose????
Linerar upgrades, chaining is in, the stupid attack system from H3 is back, and my favorites units of all have either been butchered or removed (Paladin, Phoenix, etc...).
the oinly thing that might somewhat save the game is a high modabiltiy factor..and I siriusoly doubt about that...
