There are a few retarded additions, the most memorable of which is the week of Storm. All ranged attackers are disabled during this week, but Limbic didnít even think to allow the ranged units to do melee attacks. In other words, the ranged units can stand in the battlefield and get hit by melee enemies, but they canít target melee foes, run forward and slash or hit with half damage like in previous versions of Heroes.

I had forgotten how stupid some parts of this game are, lol

not lol

seriously though check it out good long and eloquent review lol

I wonder if this is the same guy who did the "Top 20 reasons to choose the Ogre Magi" post back in Heroes 4 days. That was the best thing ever on the internet. This has a bit of the same style.

I'm playing on mediocre laptop,never ever encountered all those things this person mentioned. How can he do all of the campaigns, with the problems he describes???I call bullcrap.
The guide was spot on though. I'm still cursing the person who proposed regen should resurrect.
And no, week of storm and other random weeks like that are good thing and it can make you change your playstyle for a week.  Why the hate? Ugh...

Because they suck unimaginably. How about a week where walkers cannot walk and how fun would that be? This isn't a fun idea that makes you rethink your strategy, it's a brainfart and not even an amusing one.

@Storm

Maybe add Cjlee's review to the user's reviews?

Sounds to me like the game designers at some point ran out of ideas and made this to fill up the game

Meh they tried (and failed again) to copy wog, except in wog shooters can't shoot also get +50% HP, and most importantly it is optional.

So they not only copied something but they also did it wrong?
This is reaching a new level of mediocrity

This is more or less how H7 came to be. Many things copied poorly, without a unifying vision nor a particularly good implementation for each thing. Town levels worked in H5, they are poor in H7. Skill system was inspired from H5 except it missed all its good points. Magic system tried to return to an earlier model but failed to do it in a good way. The 4 rare resources returned but were changed into their Ashan clones that are neither particularly recognizable, nor memorable. Etc.

Exactly. Section IX (about the Ogre) should be mandatory reading for everybody. Section XI (the AI playground) is bloody brilliant as well.

EDIT > Actually, re-reading it, I'll correct myself. Section XI is probably the best thing that ever hit the internet. Section IX is now second best. This is absolutely killing me!

Blue (Construction) built Ogre Magi. Yes. He built Ogre Magi. Willingly and with nobody forcing him to at gunpoint. He had 500k of each resource and he built Ogre Magi. I'm going to leave a meaningful empty space at the end of this paragraph.

Well, if you ask me, something different could've been made. Not that it prevents shooters from shooting (and, uh, they can't even attack in melee), but that it decreases their ranged damage, at least.

The most impressive part of his review was the fact that he indeed bought the game. Poor, cjlee. He should have listened to us at CH.
