View Full Version : Is the game worthy to buy now?

Hi all!

I was looking very much forward to Heroes V, but with all the bug reports I refrained from buying.

Now quite a while later there's an expansion pack, a new expansion is being announced and we are at v1.5 of the main game now.
How is it? Has it become the game we all wanted or are there still many issues?

it's not so bad really.
I started playing with patch 1.41 being out and I haven't encountered any serious bug.
Just minor annoyances like having to double click twice sometimes to get a hero to use a luck fountain.
I never experienced all the trouble the others had.

Yes, you can buy it now. Once it is fully patched to 1.5, almost no bugs remain. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Hammers of Fate is to add a Dwarf faction and a Random Map Generator + more Campaigns + more scenario maps of all sizes + patch 2.1 for fixing even more insignificant little bugs of the expanded game of HoMM5. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

The next expansion of 'Tribes of the East' will bring the version of HoMM5 upto 3.0 and, will add more new features, never seen before in the previous sequels of the strategy game's franchise of Heroes of Might and Magic. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Please, do not sacrifice any more time at waiting for the Gold version of it. Buy it today and, play and replay hundreds upon hundreds of games by yourself, by HotSeat, by LAN and, online via multiplayer server from Ubi.com itself. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

If you got at buying it, enjoy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Haha thanks for the replies, you almost sound like an official salesperson! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good to see that most bugs have been dealt with.

The game has always been worthy to buy, in spite of bugs here and there. The expansion is underrated, at least by gaming sites. The upcoming expansion seems promising.

it is Nival I have little faith in.

Patenaudeluc is the official salesperson... we suspect http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif (No offense to him, but dont take anything he ever says seriously)

As a newcommer to the series i quite like the game & i never experienced the bugs everyone else seems to, and i only ever 2 crashes during version 1.4 (or 1.3... can no longer remember which version it was). I havent got around to buying the expansion yet but only because i cannot afford it at the moment http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

As of version 1.5 custom games no longer seem to get the slow down they use to, i suspect thats got something to do with the fixing of memory leaks, however i still hate waiting as the AI moves its heroes about... its just not as bad as it use to be, its bearable.

Wait for Tribes of the East.
