"A recent trend in the gaming industry seems to be one where publishers are re-releasing HD revamps and rebuilds of some of the best classic games that were made. Heroes of Might & Magic III HD is one of these games. In Heroes of Might & Magic III, players take on the role of heroes and their platoons of creatures as they run around Erathia to conquer their opponents. The original Heroes III was release somewhere around 1999 and is still one of the best turn-based strategy games ever." - Attack On Gaming
Heroes of Might & Magic III HD is not a bad game. It's same game from 1999, it just looks better on modern computers. However I cannot recommend the PC version to anyone who is a fan of the series.
Even if you don't remember the specifics, you may remember greatly enjoying the original Heroes of Might & Magic III--and perhaps getting lost in it for hours, days, weeks at a time. The new HD edition of the game is also likely to sink its claws into you, so great is its power to absorb your time and your thoughts. That said, I have more than a few significant misgivings about the re-release's cost and content, especially when compared with the more complete versions of the original game on sale elsewhere online.
Jon of RGN writes, "While this is supposed to be a serious entry in the Ubisoft portfolio paying tribute to a classic series, it ends up just being a decent purchase for newcomers and that's about it. This release is getting treated as a slap in the face to fans by some of the most vocal PC Gamers in the press, and in a lot of ways this is justified because of the availability of the original and the lack of updates in this Remaster. That being said, reviews are perhaps going a bit too far with this. Heroes of Might & Magic III - HD Edition is a solid and stable application giving my Steam account a piece of history that it previously did not have. To me, that's something. Heroes of Might & Magic within its own right provides a masterpiece classic experience for the Strategy Role Playing Game genre and this Remaster doesn't hinder that experience in any way."
