And... it is complete!



Sword of Frost... well, what can I say?

1. Mostly a huge disappointment. It was the easiest Chronicles game they released, or maybe 2nd easiest to Masters of the Elements, and even though I did enjoy the story a bit, it could've been so much more...

For instance, we see Tarnum enjoying being a tyrant again, or "almost enjoying"... in a single event. It's never mentioned again. Why?

2. The final mission provides only a few events as the map is tiny. Were they on the verge of bankrupcy by then? it certainly feels lame.

3. Nearly no Gelu-Tarnum interaction. And since I got Orb of Inhibition from a warrior's crypt right after I started the final mission, Gelu couldn't even armageddon me.

4. EASY. Oh God, it was sooo easy. "Impossible" felt more like "Very Easy". I don't even know where to start - giving you Azure Dragon freebies each mission? You know, you may pretty much tick "Quick Combat" and never let go...  Town portal happens in 2nd mission already, and it's just a curbstomp. The AI is outmatched, sometimes gets 1-2 Crystal Dragon freebies and that's it... level 1 heroes with regular armies.. against 60 ATT Tarnum with Azures. Great missionmaking skills, 3DO... sigh

5. It was the last Chronicles game, so I kinda expected an outro. A proper one. Not rehashed Armageddon's blade mission screen with a very short and uninspiried final entry. They could do an intro in Warlords of the Wastelands, but they couldn't do an outro for Sword of Frost, sigh.

Again 3.5/10 at best.

This concludes the 3-year old journey with Heroes Chronicles. It was mostly fun, but often disappointing. Expect a big thread about whole HoMM3 playthrough, since it was merely a part of it.

It was still worth it, anyway, but I guess the whole series could be considered a cash-grab in the end, for people who bought those games when they were released.

You are too good for your own good But yeah, the chronicles difficulty fluctuates so much between pushover and actually hard. In the first mission where you face Gelu I defeated him on day 2 lol. What was that even about ^^

I did not mind the lack of interaction with Gelu, he never was the most talkative or multidimensional guy. I liked the discussions with Ufretin and the backstabbing dungeon fun times.

The ending was such a pile of pegasi manure. I was also hoping we'd get an awesome sword of frost artifact but I guess it's too silly to expect that from a game titled the sword of frost. Well, onwards to the next goal!

The "Beholder advisors" were definitively the high point of the campaign. Fun, not nearly as awesome as the Barbarian Familiar on a pony, but pretty cool.

It feels as if nobody playtested this before.

Also, like we discussed earlier, there's one last thing to add: after all those games and hours spent on Tarnum storyline, your ending is a poorly voiceacted KIJA!!!!!. Yeah, that's it. They should make a t-shirt out of that. If this game was released in modern times, it would become a meme instantly.
