About This Game
Murder, treachery, resurrection, savage battles and ultimately-freedom!
When Erathia’s King Gryphonheart is murdered by traitors he is resurrected as an undead warlord who leads a ruthless invasion of his former Kingdom. Little resistance is met until his daughter Catherine, Queen of Enroth, returns to her homeland commanding an army of elite Enrothian warriors. Meanwhile the Necromancers raise large hordes of undead and advance towards the Erathian capitol. Queen Catherine receives the aid of her father’s survived generals and embarks on a crusade to reclaim her lost land.
You control the greatest heroes and fiercest creatures in a conflict of epic proportions, as Cathereine fights to restore her family’s rightful reign, uncover her father’s killers and free him from the dark prison of his undead body!
This is a must have for every Might and Magic series fan!
There are two “layers” to the world map – the aboveground and the underground. There are typically subterranean gateways that lead to and from the underground. Maps are filled with a huge variety of buildings, treasures, monsters, mines and so forth that reward extensive exploration.
At the very least, a player must locate mines and flag them (whereupon they provide constant resources), since these resources are required to develop towns. The player must also develop his heroes’ skills, both by battling creatures (and enemy heroes) and by acquiring artifacts or visiting special locations. Heroes are given a choice of skills to upgrade upon leveling up, as well as becoming better at combat or using magic. The skills must be chosen carefully, since they are permanent and only a limited number of skills can be learned.
- Insanely addictive gameplay that will make you want to play “just one more turn” over and over again
- Great multiplayer, especially when playing in hot seat mode on one PC
