Poll Question:
Best HOMM Game

I searched for ''best homm game'' and ''best heroes game'' and i didn't find a poll about this,it is quite strange,but well;what is the best Heroes of Might and magic game that has been done so far?(I put WoG separately,because many people see it as a new game)I'm not sure if this is the right forum to put it in,but there isn't a general heroes games discussion forum where it would fit better.VOTE!

I voted for HoMM 3.5. WoG really blew me away. It blasted the HoMM 3 experience to a whole new level of coolness and added in so many features that I not view as simply essential. Other things were just plain fun, though :-)

Althought HoMM 5 comes in a close second to HoMM 3.5, it's still not quite as well developed as In The Wake of Gods.

I am, however, hoping that we'll see a HoMM 5.5 sometime in the future ;-)

I vote for the holy 'Heroes of Might and Magic III'.
WoG is just another (fan-made) expansion, and should be included in HoMM3 instead of being separated out.
HoMM4 is the worst, no doubt, and marked the end of 3DO.

As for which one is the best now, Heroes V obviously has a lot going for it, and was able to build successfully on all the elements I liked best from the past games. As for which one I had the best time with when I played it the first time, Heroes II will always have a place in my heart. For it's time, there was nothing like it, unfortunately I never got to play Heroes I so I can't say if that would have made me feel the same way. Heroes III was good and a natural sequel to III. Heroes IV was better in some ways, but much worse in others, felt like it almost belonged in a different series.

Just to be original I vote H3!Make no mistake though,H3 with the expansions.Wog did have some nice points but the whole fan customisation
repulses me.Of course I would have played it more had I not been occupied with other things. H2 was special too(if you consider that I played it after H3 and was immersed in no time) and very fun.H1 well,a bit too old and surpassed by its sequels and while I loved H4 it ultimately disappointed me for various reasons.It was refreshing and having seen this view of Heroes it soon was time to move on.H5 perhaps has the potential to surpass H3 BUT only when some important problems have been adressed.It was the result of some serius planning rushed into market too early which is unforgivable but the game is still pretty good and something we needed too after H4.

A user made mod for H3. Do a search for it.

It adds a lot of truly fun things, such as level 8 creatures, stack experience and a lot of customisable options.

It also improves a lot of the bad skills in H3, like Eagle Eye and the like...

Overall it was very cool, but it sounds like some people prefer less options ;-)

WoG is the best, and it's free. Extended the original game in such an impressive way that all other heroes games seem to be lacking possibilities now. Can't wait till 3.59..

I'm sure this poll is skewed by the number of people that have played each version. Personally I have not played Heroes I or Heroes III: In The Wake of Gods so I can't vote for either of them.

Have most people here played Heroes II? If so, why would you vote for III over II? For it's time, I think II was a better product. If you want to go with what's best now, then vote V...

Alas, I never played II, it was a bit before my time.

Now that I think about it, though, maybe I should fire up DosBox and find myself as copy...

Heroes3 was probably the best game in the serries, while Heroes2 was the best improvement in the serries.  Heroes4 would be if it wasn't rushed due to 3DO going bankrupt.
(You could release H3 as H2 expansion pack, and no one would notice.)

By the way: you left out Equilibris.

Equilibris didn't exactly wow me. I tried it and it didn't feel much different from plain H4.

However, I didn't bother with H4 much, so I may be wrong...

Also, I'm not sure if H4 was ever completed...

Sorry, I knew there was such a thing for heroes 4 ,but i never managed to find the site(i didn't try to do it anyway),but i had no idea it ads the same much things to heroes 4 as WoG for heroes 3!And i have never heard of people speaking of it as a different game, like WoG,just like a smaller addon.

Erm, it doesn't. Equilibris doesn't come close to WoG in terms of changes.

It's whole mission was to balance H4 out, not add new gameplay features to it...

I totally agree! Heroes 2 was a new universe for everybody... Heroes 3 was a little better.....

I voted for Heroes III, i think that the series where going the right way from I to III, getting better and better. But then Heroes IV came, which IMO is the worst thing that happened to the once fantastic game.
I am happy to see that Heroes V is getting the series on the right track once again...
